The countdown to IFA in September is on, and we certainly cannot wait for the Samsung’s pre IFA launch on September 4th, which will hopefully show off the Galaxy Note 3 as well as what other goodies Samsung have to show, but as per usual the Samsung leak machine is going into overdrive with specs leaking all around.
First up is a from an anonymous tipster who has advised Phone Arena that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will in fact come with a 3450mAh battery, upping the 3100mAh battery found inside the Galaxy Note II which already provides most users with all day battery life.
Next, it appears that the Galaxy Note 3 has been for a trip through DLNA certification prior to its announcement and as part of the process of certification, the OS version number has been listed as Android 4.3. Three variants of the Galaxy Note 3 – SM-N900S, SM-N900K, SM-N900L – have been certified, all with Android 4.3 :
Finally, it appears that SamMobile has published a partial spec sheet for the Galaxy Note 3, or at least two variants of the device – the SM-N900 & SM-N9005 – which lists an opposing view on the battery, but confirms the phone will launch with Android 4.3 as the OS. While many of the specs on the N9005 have not been confirmed, the SM-N900 appears to be pretty complete.
|5.68 inch Full HD Super AMOLED (1920 x 1080) display|
|1.8GHz Octa-core Exynos 5420 + ARM Mali-T628 MP6 GPU||CPU/GPU UNCONFIRMED|
|13 Megapixel with Optical Image Stabilisation|
|16/32/64GB User memory ＋ microSD slot (up to 64GB)|
|Android 4.3 Jelly Bean|
The final thing is that the source for SamMobile indicates that the Galaxy Note 3 will be the same physical size as the Galaxy Note II while still incorporating the larger display, so expect some very small bezels on the device.
The Note 3 launch is expected to kick off at 19:00CST on the 4th of September – Thursday, 5 September 2013, 3am AEST – in Germany. The event will be live streamed through the Samsung Mobile Youtube page.
