The Galaxy Note 3 and other unofficial devices have been spotted by a publication on a Samsung Kazakhstan web page detailing a VIP service for the region.

First seen by TechTastic, the web page is still up and seems to include a variety of Samsung devices including Android-based smartphones and tablets. The Galaxy Note 3 is clearly listed on the page as the SM-N9000 (see following image), although other details about the upcoming handset are not offered.

That said, we’re certainly intrigued by that particular model number. In previous reports, the Galaxy Note 3 has been associated with GT-N7200, a model number that made plenty of sense considering that the previous Galaxy Note versions have model numbers GT-N7000 and GT-N7100.

Comparatively, the Galaxy Note 8 has model number GT-N5100, while the Galaxy Note 10.1 has model number GT-N8000. So why would the new Note’s model number be that different?

In addition to the Galaxy Note 3, we have spotted other unannounced Samsung devices, which have likely been confirmed by mistake thanks to this published page. You’re certainly going to recognize them from previous rumors and leaks:

For what it’s worth, the model numbers of these three devices match the model numbers seen in previous rumors.

We’ll remind you that Samsung has a special event schedule for June 20, during which it will surely unveil new Android devices.

The Galaxy Note 3 is only expected to arrive later down the road, around IFA 2013 in September – although at least one rumor puts the launch of the handset in July-August. The device is rumored to pack a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and to feature optical image stabilization technology.

    For some reason, the back of the GNote 3 concept reminds me a little bit of the HTC One’s back. Not that it’s a bad thing, it just does..


      I have an HTC ONE review unit beside me and don’t think it looks anything like the concept above. Plus the concept above us flat while the ONE is rounded.

    At least Note 3 and Tab 10.1 should have some monster specs, otherwise its rubbish, Sammy! Alu cover would be fantastic! I won’t switch to HTC One. I’m waiting for Sammy to switch to Alu!

      Not a fan of the aluminium, would prefer the materal used in the One X it just feels so good, I am starting to think that sammys phones are made with plastic because of apple if you remember HTC settled to pay millions/billions to apple for the use of patents or something.
