Another Purported Image Surfaces of Upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Galaxy Note 3

Could this be the Galaxy Note 3? According to a Chinese source, it most certainly could be. While the overall design, from what we can see, matches up with the Galaxy S4 and the other Galaxy device we have seen from Samsung this year, we still must remain cautious. It features that same fuax-metal look on the side, a slimmed down Home button and a large size, which should go without saying. 

Some of the specs for the device were also reported along with the image and they sound pretty nice. The Note 3 could pack a 5.99″ 1080p display, Snapdragon 800 chipset, Android 4.2.2, 13MP camera, and S-Pen functions. Those specs match up exactly with what we have previously seen here.

The Galaxy Note 3 should be unveiled at this year’s IFA, an event that takes place in Berlin starting September 6.

If this is the Galaxy Note 3, what do you think? Like what you see so far? On a side note, let us hope that Home button is too skinny for “you-know-who” to put their logo on. Wink wink.

    I just got the galaxy note 2 it is a great phone best phone I’ve had

  • roberthenderson

    No purchases of rear facing speakers on a phone or tablet ever again after experiencing the HTC One and Nexus 10. I will watch YouTube and news clips while waiting around every day and it is so stupid (especially when I am in a quiet place) standing there trying to cup my hands just right in back of the phone with the right amount of volume where I can hear it without disturbing others around me.

  • Stephen

    i really want them to change the design of their stuff. i, for one, am sick of the stupid home button. go with on screen already.

  • Ajmcnicol

    People need to realize you can only make a rectangular phone look so different. There isnt an infinite amount of variations you can use. Shard corners, rounded corners. Metal body, plastic body. x inch screen, y inch screen. I dont care if one generation of a phone look different then the next..i dont care of the galaxy s8 and the note 6 look exactly like the current gen. Long as they have the latest hardware available at the time to qualify they premium status and appropriate software updates to warrant an upgrade. Cause in the end, vast majority of users are going to slap on a case anyway. And if you dont..i wish you luck.

  • rutgersjaffo

    Jesus Christ. Even the article author has to whine about a Verizon logo. Seriously?

  • Dee

    GN 3 will look exactly as GN2 so big pass…Hype/leaks already started by sammy

    • Ajmcnicol

      So what..i dont need every new phone to look completely different then the last..the whole point of the next phone u get should be better specs..cause in the end..you can only make a phone look different so many times ..its square with rounded corners. And they will look alike in a case anyway.
      The specs rock..count me sold

  • lilmoe2002

    It has a sticker on the screen (visible next to the front facing camera)… I mean, come on.

  • The Dark Days Incarnate

    Need to upgrade soon either guna wait to the note 3 or Xperia ZU

    • Ajmcnicol

      Note 3..sammy has a better os upgrade rep then sony

  • forum8417

    get rid of that nasty home button already!

    • Ajmcnicol

      I like the physical home button..each their own

  • monusuri

    that’s not note 3 because note 3 doesn’t have samsung logo in front it has been removed to compensate for the extra screen size

  • Drake

    I just want to note that I wish Samsung would add a detachable bluetooth ear phone on their phablets. One that is ready to use upon detachment and is placed within the contour shape on the side of the phablet body.

    It will not need a lot of battery juice unlike the typical earphone because once you’re done talking with it, it will go right back to the phablet and be recharged. When a typical earphone is being recharged you are recharging its usage calling time and also its resting time (rest times tend to be longer at most times). With the detachable earphone idea you are only recharging the usage calling time which translates to less battery power and less time needed to recharge back in replacing the juice that was used up. Having said that you will not have an issue of having an uncharged earphone and don’t have to spend extra time recharging it as well and does not have to find a place to recharge it. If Samsung maintains about having a removable battery on their phablets then one can simply choose to bring an extra battery. In the mean time the ongoing advancements is trending towards less power drain capability type of hardwares and more juiced up battery types. Not to mention phablets can accommodate a larger piece of battery which can hold more power. Having mention trends – there’s more texting now than phone calling. With regard to uncomfortableness on the ear usage this will get better during trial and error in the development stage – and by the way the earphone will not be on your ear at most times as it will rest back on the phablet when not in use. When competition kicks in you’ll see several awesome choices instead. There will be competition with this feature especially when it start to be applied to laptops (business laptops too) and who knows what other type of machines. LG have done it on a cell phone but it was not as advanced as it could be today. Samsung could revive this earphone feature and use it on a phablet (which is more pertinent). Samsung did a good job reviving the stylus pen now dubbed the S-Pen. I would love to see them do the same on the earphone. You won’t look like a geek anymore.

    • Ajmcnicol

      the whole point of the Note..is a stylus. Its not gimmicky enough to be totally useless..people use it. While people use the head set ..the number vs price increase wouldnt be worth it. The cost the the stylus (despite what they charge) isnt that much to make…a head set is. Not to mention different people have different ear sizes and preferences.

  • phoenix Stutz

    it is probably a galaxy Mega 5.8 or 6.3 with a case. Bummer 🙁

  • Agnish Paul

    That’s galaxy Mega 6.3 -__-

  • Destroythanet

    Nice Galaxy Mega

  • windhaker

    ahem…….why the f**k all rumor image or leaked image have such darn quality. if i get a chance of taking pics of an unreleased mobile. i would make them a role model.

    we want full flexible mobile era.not s5 or note 4

    vote now.


  • Avery Dejuan Herron

    What is everybody taking about with this I hope it’s not a scaled S4 stuff? Doesn’t the note 2 look like a scaled S3?

  • Mitacheto

    isn’t it samsung galaxy mega?


    I want a front screen shot in hand

  • Payaso

    I want a different design. Not a mega Galaxy S4.

    • LewisSD

      Dodgers… $222 Million payroll and they are in last place, and lead the MLB in errors lol. Meanwhile, Padres just owned you guys for the second game in a row tonight.

      Agreed on the design of the note three tough. I hope its not a scaled version of the s4 too.


    I like how the side power button is lower down the side

  • wargamer1969

    Sasmung should have at least teased the Note 3 this week at their event but not a word, disappointed now we have to wait another 3 months.

  • Ryan

    Looks like the Optimus G Pro

  • Greg Abbate

    I was hoping the Note 3 would feature an single piece aluminum body

  • rei_load

    When is Samsung gonna get ride of that home button…

  • jainkallarakal

    Is it going to be a GalaxyNote DUO, Android/window, Phablet!!!

  • John

    Lovin my Note 2 and I’m only interested in what the Note 4 will be considering 2 year contracts.

  • Kanaga Deepan N

    If its again coming with non-pentile screen like Note2, I am in…

    Because Pentile 360ppi is almost equal to 240ppi, which is less than that of non-pentile 720p of Note2…

    Small Text will look less sharp even in 1080p 6″ screen, if its of pentile-matrix type, imho…

  • Verizon Engineer

    “On a side note, let us hope that Home button is too skinny for “you-know-who” to put their logo on. Wink wink.” Is that a challenge?

  • Rob Mounts

    And it already looks like there is a screen protector on it

  • Mark Schleupner

    Please God, please…. let the button be too small for the Verizon logo!!

  • fauxshizzl

    Isn’t that the Galaxy mega?

  • Sirx

    Too busy in my little corner hypebeasting the HTC Butterfly S to myself >_> | <__>

    *oohhoohoo* “front-facing speakers” *grunt grumble* “expandable storage” *feral growling* “large battery” *I wants it* “my precious”…………

  • Brian P.

    Tim, we’ve been had…again! Take a close look and I believe we will all agree this is the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3

  • Avery Dejuan Herron

    All I need is a phone that runs tablet apps that isn’t as big as a tablet or to small a.k.a a real phablet.

  • Jon

    Please Google…please…have someone make a Nexus 5 device for you that is 5.3″-5.5″ in size, has 1080p display, has a huge battery, or removable batteries, and has a good camera. Leave your Nexus 4 line alone at the size it is.

    My body is ready.

    • hkklife

      I agree. 5.5″ 1080P with soft buttons, oodles of storage, a massive battery and no stylus would be *perfect* and that’s exactly why they won’t do it. I expect essentially a Nexus 4.2 for the next Nexus device.

      • Babs Oyed

        When you say no stylus it’s obvious you’ve never really experienced the S Pen on the Note II.

        Exactly because of the S Pen I can’t possibly go back to using a device without the S Pen capability.

        • Jon

          well…I like the S-pen. It’s cool at times, but I won’t lose sleep over not having it. It’s just not something that’s ever going to be a part of stock Android.

    • Tyler Durden

      You can’t have nexus and good camera.

  • Diablo81588

    Every release has to be a bigger screen, right Samsung?

  • Daeshaun Griffiths

    annouced sept 6, released the U.S. a month later. Then it’ll be time for android 5.0 rumors and possibly another nexus phone. I’ll sit this excitement out because i’m sucker for the newest software. don’t even get me started on when verizon might get it

    but it looks like they did something good with the power button. It was hard to reach on the Note 2, this is definitely lower.

    • FAL_Fan

      Hard to reach? I certainly haven’t found it hard to reach.

      • Daeshaun Griffiths

        then you should have no issue with the note 3 🙂

  • Greyhame

    Not for me. Just too big. I’d wait for the rumored redesign coming from Samsung next year instead of getting an enlarged S4. The HTC One’s quality is the best possible thing that could’ve happened to android phones.. everyone needs to play catch up.

  • Hans Dirk Kwazneski

    That thing is sexy.

  • sc0rch3d

    Samsung is obviously missing the niche market to create a slighter bigger device called the Galaxy Journal to slot between the Note and Tab

    • Sirx

      HA! Good one, good sir.

    • Avery Dejuan Herron

      All I need is a phone that runs tablet apps a.k.a a real phablet.

      • dafonse

        Its called Paranoid rom, and works like a charm. And its been out since the galaxy nexus.

        • Nickan Fayyazi


  • Avery Dejuan Herron

    I want it now!

  • Fozzybare


  • Justin

    “They made the home button smaller on us? Fine, they made the back cover bigger. Let’s cover that up.”

    • JoshGroff

      Replacement back covers, umad Verizon.

      • Nickan Fayyazi

        The Verizon GNote 3: Featuring all the goodies of the GN3, without a replaceable battery.


        • JoshGroff

          If that happens, I will use it as proof that God either doesn’t exist, or that he hates Verizon subscribers.

  • btod

    Or this is another one of the many fake prototypes Samsung makes to throw people off. Just like they did with the S3 and S4.

  • slik101

    Don’t under estimate Verizon’s greed

    • WickedToby741

      Next up will be a permanent watermark onscreen.

      • michael arazan

        Verizon is starting to remind me of the Third Reich

        • rutgersjaffo

          So leave, dude. Quit whining and leave.

  • Bob Buttons

    Nudge nudge.

    • Blue Sun

      You know what I mean?

      • The Kraken

        Bob’s your uncle

        • Trenton Wilson

          He is not

          • Monty

            Wink wink…Say no more, say no more…

  • NexusPhan69

    Even if that is fake, I fully expect the note 3 to look almost exactly like that. Fits in with the S4 look perfectly. I like.

    • tyguy829

      Exactly. Even if this is fake, that is what the note 3 will look like

      • Prince Campbell III

        I agree as well. They aren’t going to change the design of any devices until next year starting with the GS5. That’s my guess.

        • steve30x

          I was going to say that too, even if they improve the build of the phone like the htc one, its still going to look exactly like that. Samsung has to establish a phone that anyone can recognize as a Galaxy of some kind.

        • I could see them changing the Note 3 and then the design would trickle down into the S5. Kinda like what Apple used to do with releasing an upgraded iPad and then doing the same upgrades to the iPhone a year later.

    • Brenda Thompson

      just as Danny implied, I didn’t even know that some one able to make $6741 in one month on the internet. did you read this page w­w­w.K­E­P­2.c­o­m

    • hughlewis325

      $85 an hour! Seriously I don’t know why more people haven’t tried this, I work two shifts, 2 hours in the day and 2 in the evening…And whats awesome is Im working from home so I get more time with my kids. Heres where I went, http://www.pro67.com
