Steve Jobs once said ‘if you see a stylus, they blew it’, but I think that Samsung might have something to say about that. Their Galaxy Note range of devices have been hugely popular, and there’s no reason to suspect that the Galaxy Note 3 would be any different. We know that Samsung are going to unveil the Note 3 at IFA on September 4, but we don’t really know what the device will look like (other than that it will probably be made of plastic).
ETrade Supply, a distributor of OEM parts, has listed the digitiser assembly for the Galaxy Note 3 on its website, complete with pictures. The left image above is last year’s Galaxy Note II and on the right is what ETrade are claiming is the Note 3. You’ll note (pun intended) that the Note 3 is larger (said to be 5.68 inches), squarer and has a lot less bezel space than its predecessor. Interestingly, the capacitive buttons are lighter and thus more obvious without having to be lit up. The face has the same grey, faux-metal texture of the Galaxy S 4.
No specifications are given, and the part is listed as ‘out of stock’, but we’ll soon see whether or not their leak is accurate.
