New rumored Galaxy Note 3 image hits the web, shows entire handset

    Shortly after seeing a purported Galaxy Note 3 image hit the web, a second such image has been published – see picture below.

    Unlike the first image, which only showed only a section of the screen, the second one shows the entire handset. However, we still can’t confirm whether this is the real thing or not, so take it with a grain of salt.

    The smartphone is positioned in such a manner that makes it harder to spot certain details, as we’re mostly shown the side of the handset. Moreover, the handset is protected by case. From the distance, one may confuse it with the Galaxy S4. We’re looking at a large screen and a prominent physical home button. However, the on/off button on the Galaxy S4 is placed higher towards the top of the handset, on the right side of the device. On this device the same button is placed almost near the middle of the right side – in fact, one could say that the lock button is placed almost in the same spot as on the Galaxy Mega 6.3.

    A slim bezel may, or may not be there, and the camera seems to be placed on the right side of the speaker.

    As you can see from the watermarks, this purported Galaxy Note 3 image has been spotted on China’s Weibo social network. Just like with the other leaked Galaxy Note 3 picture (available below), we’ll have to wonder why more pictures haven’t been taken to show the device from other angles as well. We’ll probably see similar leaks in the coming months.

    The other Galaxy Note models have been announced at IFA in Berlin, Germany, which is where we’d expect to see the device become official. However, the most recent Galaxy Note 3 rumors say the phone could be announced and launched earlier than expected, to compensate for the poorer Galaxy S4 sales compared to estimates.

    The smartphone is said to pack a 5.99-inch Full HD touchscreen display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and run Android 4.2.2 out of the box.

      Why do you keep that concept photo as the cover photo on these articles, people get pretty confused and mad at G+

      • Ivan Myring

        It is a pretty sexy concept though.

        • MasterMuffin

          But sadly not going to happen

          • DanDingello

            Its what the people want to see you know, leaks to keep the rumor mill churning. Though I totally agree with you

          the white concept is damn ugly if you ask me

    • Haseeb

      That looks like its going to be the most uncomfortable phone in the world, edges are to sharp and the phone is too big! The Note 2 was great feel wise, hope it doesn’t feel like what I think it’s going to feel like.

      • hohopig

        Erm .. did you read the article. Look at the second image onward and not the top image.

      i thought samsung was going to do something after being made fun of for releasing devices after the devices that was “more of the same”????

      • Cyril Archer

        Wait for the Galaxy S5, not like Samsung are going anywhere anytime soon. Unless HTC/Sony/LG up their game and steal Samsung’s Android thunder, Apple is their only real threat to the Note 3 and that will come in the form of the IPhone 5s, which itself is aimed more towards the S4. So when Apple starts doing the 5.7 inch Phablet on IOS 8 and when all OEMS are on their second generation phablets like the G Pro 2/Xperia Z Ultra 2 or HTC Two Max in 2014, Samsung will be more than prepared to change the game, they’ve been caught off guard this year but that’s due to design 2.0, I suppose we’re halfway through that with design 2.5. They were practically unchallenged last year when they released the Note 2, this year things are a little different and it’s bitten them up the behind.

      I want the concept design.

    • Cao Meo

      same design language and that’s not good

      Samsung stagnates and that offers big opportunities to Sony, LG and HTC

      • Srsly

        Lol, wtf! This design looks like the iphone.. Especially when u look from the side n it’s flat finish

    • sem

      I’m about to get a note 2 next week and this will come out later. omgosh

    • ConCal

      After seeing this I hope HTC makes a Note competitor. When will Samsung, “get it?”

      • John Ruiz

        After people stop buying their phones.

      • Topcat488

        I was waiting for the Note III… But knowing Samsung, I won’t be rushing out to be the first one with it, considering what they did with the S4 (8 different ones)… I’d love to have a phablet with “FRONT SPEAKERS”.

    • Tom Pajak

      if they can squeeze all the screen into the housing of the Note 2 then this will be a sleeper hit…the Mega 6.3 is the worlds smallest MicroTab

    • Luka Mlinar

      Ahh yes the new micro pad is out. I love how people who buy it keep telling me it’s a phone :D

      • DanDingello

        LOL it is a phone.. and a tablet

        • Luka Mlinar

          If only there was a word to describe the two. :/

          • EvenInTheDarkestHour

            Tabone? lol

          • DanDingello

            phone and tablet — phablet thats how they call it these days

    • Nikesh Sharma

      How can one pull out the stylus with that case on??

    • MisterYoshi02

      I SAW A GALAXY NOTE III IN GLORIETTA YESTERDAY EVENING. I WAS WONDERING HOW IT GOT THERE WHEN EVEN A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO ARE CERTIFIED ANDROID SPECIALISTS DON’T HAVE ANY KNOWLEDGE ABOUT ITS WIDESPREAD. IT HAD AN 8GB INTERNAL MEMORY, COLORS WERE IN BLACK AND WHITE, FORGOT THE OTHER SPECS. SIGH

      • DanDingello

        which shop?

    • Brandon Weber

      The phone the guy is holding is the Galaxy mega 6.3. I have that phone and it looks identical
