With the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 being officially acknowledged by the Korean company, rumours and speculations have gone into hyper mode, especially since the official unveiling is just a week away. A new leak has popped up, courtesy of ETradeSupply, which reveals that the Note 3 will sport a massive 5.7-inch display. The leaked picture shows the front display panel of the device, and the most notable things about it are the highly-reduced bezel.
Thanks to the slim bezel, the handset will probably be only slightly bigger than its predecessor, if not of the same size. We saw Samsung pull off a similar move with the S4, where because of the reduced bezel, the smartphone ended up being smaller than the S3 despite having a larger display.
It's also worth noting that from the looks of things, Samsung isn't straying too far from the design it set up with the S3. Almost every subsequent device, including the recently-launched Galaxy Tab 3, sport the same look. However, as plausible as this leak might be, we’d still recommend keeping a salt shaker nearby.
From what is known so far, the Galaxy Note 3 will come with a 5.68-inch 1080p AMOLED display and is expected to sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC under the hood. The phone is also expected to come with a mammoth 3GB of RAM, as well as a 13-megapixel camera. There was also talk of the Galaxy Note 3 coming with a few variants, including an Exynos 5 Octa-powered variant.
