Two distinct sources have provided new Galaxy Note 3 images, one reportedly showing an actual image of the upcoming smartphone and the other reportedly being the actual lockscreen wallpaper of the phone.
A tipster has apparently sent TechKiddy an image showing a handset that’s supposed to be the Galaxy Note 3. Naturally, the image can’t be confirmed at this time, but we’ll notice that some design elements are similar to what we saw in the past few days in pictures showing alleged front panels for the handset.
We have the same round corners as in those front panel pictures – although the overall shape is rather square – the same home button placement and front speaker, and the same slim bezels. Even a Samsung logo is almost visible.
If real, this may very well be the first notable Galaxy Note 3 image seen before the phone is actually announced.
In contrast to this blurry image, we have a very clear image showing the supposed official lockscreen wallpaper of the Galaxy Note 3. The image below comes from trusted source @evleaks:

The subliminal suggestion here seems to be the that Galaxy Note 3 will be a phone for creative individuals, just like its predecessors.
That said, we’ll remind you that Android Authority will be covering the Galaxy Note 3 event live in Berlin, Germany next week, so keep following us for timely updates on Samsung’s next flagship smartphone.
