Yep, if true, its disappointing for me. I'll have to wait on the LTE version of the Xperia Z Ultra or see what the HTC One Max looks like.

Would anyone know how I could get into beta testing phones before they're out? I'm extremely interested in beta testing programs and devices.

There are already leaked rendors, but I don't believe those are confirmed...yet. I'd be surprised if the One Max looked anything different from the rendors.

Eek...if this leaked pic is truly it, then I might end up passing on the device. Just seems like too much wasted space and the device is taller, yet the screen only has a slight jump up:

New Samsung Galaxy Note 3 specs rumored

If they went with 5.68 inch screen, only way I start consideirng it is if the overall form factor is the same dimensions as the Note 2 (or smaller, if possible). Otherwise, I'll just keep enjoying my Note 2 until the flexible screen versions of the Note are on the market, whether that be 1 or 2 years down the line.

I don't think that pic is the real thing. doesn't look legit. They must have gone out of mind if note 3 is that huge with just slightly bigger screen.

Why do so many sites keep recirculating that (DrEx link above) old pic? This pic was the first one out when the Note 3 rumors began. Now they're using the same one again but changing the "rumored" size.

I'll just wait it out like the rest of you but honestly, 5.6" from 5.5" is not worth full price which is the route I'd have to go.

People seem to think it's the Galaxy Mega, in that pic. Only way I truly consider the Note 3, is if the rumor on Sammobile is accurate that the Note 3 dimensions will be exactly the same (or smaller) as the Note 2. And for me, that would just be the starting point. The other "x" factors for me truly considering an out of pocket purchase:

- 32gb (minimum) or 64gb internal storage offered (w/ microSD slot)

All the other rumored specs are just upgrades, which are cool, but the internal storage was always an important factor for me, that didn't end up coming to fruition for the Sprint Note 2.

The rumored 3GB RAM is almost enough of an enticement on its own,especially for the development community to throw something like this on it:

Ubuntu for Android | Ubuntu for phones | Ubuntu

Ubuntu Edge | Indiegogo

I just hope AT&T does not get an exclusive on the 32GB version of the Note 3.

Kind of disapointed at the screen size if these rumors are true. I was hoping for at least 6 inch screen. Regardless, this phone will be a beast anyway.

No worries! You've given us so much good info in the past.

Even after the 9/4 event, there are some questions that I'd like confirmed for the US variants:

- Will all 3 internal storage forms 16, 32, & 64 be offered for all US providers? If not, which ones and will there be any carrier exclusives for internal storage versions (ala GS4)
- Any timetable for US release (since there's usually a delay behind Euro release)?

So if the picture posted in the phandroid home page article...

New Samsung Galaxy Note 3 specs rumored

is actually the Note 3 vs the note 2, it looks like they made slightly worse use of space than on the Note 2. As such, the phone looks considerably larger despite only having a .13 or .18 inch larger screen. I was hoping for a 6 inch screen, but would have been happy with 5.68 if the size remained close to identical with the note 2.

Can anyone confirm that the picture is the note 3 vs the note 2? If so, it kinda sucks a little. If I'm getting a noticeably larger phone than the note 2, I would like at least 6 inches. I still may get it, but it's a bit of a let down.

Read the comments at the bottom of that thread. It was already mentioned that the picture is mis-leading because it's not the Note 3.

-EDIT-
Also scroll up a few posts, starting with my post on the Phandroid article:
Note 3 in hand soon...questions need answered?

Another Exclusive: List of Countries receiving the Note 3 Exynos or Snapdragon.

As for Mr. Ed getting his hands on the device possibly after the Sept 4th unveiling, I am ok with that, since Sprint has a habit of delivering devices that are a slight bit different than other carriers, so maybe Mr. Ed will get the official Sprint version and tell us what exactly we get.

oh and feel better Mr. Ed.

I agree. 5.55 right now is just about right and the overall form factor is just at my limit. I'm more eager about the future flexible phone displays and if they can actually make a production model like their videos earlier this year.

Someone did a mathematical breakdown of the size screen that would be possible, if they had a fold out format to go from phone to tablet, but can't remember who posted it and in what thread.

I'm holding out hope that the rumor about different carriers getting different versions and T-Mobile will get a 6" screen is true. Maybe the SM-9006 with LTE-A? Tmo will be rolling out some LTE-A before years end they say.

That is because AT&T is a blood sucking parasite from the belly of the beast that tries to capture as much spotlight thus blocking out the rays of sunshine from others.

Actually I do believe the article states that if your country is missing to not worry since its not a final list. Example is looking at the UK. They have numerous carriers being listed. I am sure once they get a hold of the other carriers they too will be listed in the list.

Besides, I wouldn't worry, since current carriers carrying the Note 2 wouldn't be stupid not to carry the Note 3.

2 reasons I'm thinking ATT is the only model listed:

1) GSM radios that will work worldwide
2) Model number (e.g N9005)

I was trying to search for the old article, but Sprint's version was supposedly N900S. Can't remember if T-mobile was N900T and verizon N900V, but I do remember that being mentioned a couple months ago regarding the model numbers.

Agreed. The Note 2 is the very outside edge of what's acceptable as far as size. If the new one is significantly bigger in any dimension, I'll have to pass.

I'd also love 32 or 64 GB on board.

The only other significant reason I'm considering upgrading is getting a 1080p screen instead of 720p, and that's only important when/if I decide to run linux on it as a desktop replacement using my smart dock.

Okay, Samsung has my attention now...

Samsung to ship Galaxy Note III from September, Galaxy Gear smartwatch from October | SamMobile

Minimum 32gb version available? Uh, yeah, that news alone is enough for me to highly consider jumping up to the Note 3. Now all I need is confirmation if the US (and more specifically, Sprint) will be getting the 64gb version. If so, I will likely get it (also assuming the rumors about the overall form factor are correct and the device is the same size and/or smaller than the current Note 2).

Damn it,

The Note 2 was the one device that I felt was going to last me the full length of my contract even with the Note 3 coming around the corner. But nooooo, Samsung has to announce 32GB as the lowest version with a 64 also.

Aarrghh

Like you drex, I too wonder if the 64 version will come to the US. Hopefully it does and also to Sprint.

My wife wants a Note 2 in the worst way. I've banished her to my OG EVO. Hahhaah.

Under no circumstances can we let her know about the Note 3.

I've actuall been interested in this one, just for the sheer enthusiasm. Its addicting.

Yup. I thought so too. One of the major factors for that changing was going to be how much internal storage, minimum, would be offered. The other factor, for me, was the overall physical size. 64gb w/ the same or smaller overall physical dimensions would be a no brainer for me. At that point, it would be more of a question of either buying full price, or using another line's upgrade eligibility.

The more I consider it, the more I think I will just keep my N2 until I can get the Note 3 at the full discount. I want the Note 3, but like others here, I can't see getting it when the specs may not warrant paying full price out of pocket. My N2 is still pretty amazing, and I think I will just exercise patience and restraint on this one.
Who knows, maybe there will be something else even more exciting before my next upgrade. We'll see when it comes out, and go from there.

If an FM Radio is built-in (non website-based),yes,you should be able to listen to FM Radio broadcasts in your location,just as you would w/any stand-alone FM Radio.

I'm guessing that your wired headphones/earbuds would act as the antenna,as they do on other similarly equipped smartphones.

Would like to see some innovation in this area,to where a wired headset does not need to be plugged-in to the phone for functionality.

I almost upgraded to the HTC one a few months back. I held off because the Misses wanted the Note2. I'm really glad I didn't upgrade, because I don't think she'd be too happy with my LTEvo. LOL

It's going to be really interesting to see what's out next May when the new Evo drops.

Maybe I'll come home one day with a Note3 and she'll pass out!!

Bluetooth 4.0 is expected isn't it? The S4 and I believe the S3 and Note II all have Bluetooth 4.0.

I sure hope so. I might be placing too much hope into it but it seems like the only viable option to carriers not allowing interoperability in the 700mHZ band or just in general. I thought the adoption of Lte as the standard would usher in the benefits of sim cards and make the lazy companies actually compete for customers. I underestimated the duopoly of att and vzw .
