Samsung are expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 3 later this year and we've now got some fresh information about the phablet.
Apparently, Samsung's Galaxy Note 3 will have a huge 6.3 inch touch-screen according to rumours being reported by KoreaTimes. We presume it'll run at a resolution of at least 1920*1080 pixels to ensure it supports 1080p video playback.
The original Galaxy Note coined the term "phablet" for devices which are too large to be qualified as a smartphone , but too small to be a tablet. Samsung then went on to increase the display size to 5.5 inches on the Note 2 and it looks like the upward trend is set to continue with its successor.
In order to power such a large high-resolution display you'll need a lot of power and the good news is that the Note III is expected to feature Samsung's new Exynos Octa-Core processor. As the name implies it has 8 processing cores with 4 high-performance cores and 4 designed for performing less CPU intensive tasks.
The innovative design ensures that the Exynos Octa-Core processor not only has the best performance of any mobile chip, but also reduces power consumption. That'll enable next-gen devices, such as the Note 3, to have high performance as well as longer battery life !
At the current time that's all the information we have about the Galaxy Note III, but we can make some educated guess on what other features it'll have. We'd expect it run on Android Key Lime Pie, to have at least an 8 mega-pixel camera and to support 4G !
As soon as we get any more information Samsung's next-gen phablet you'll be the first to know !
