A newly posted image shows what the Galaxy Note 3 would look like compared to the Galaxy Note 2, assuming a previously leaked picture portraying the front panel of the 2013 smartphone is real.

Yesterday, we saw plenty of photos of the Galaxy Note 3 front panel, which revealed that the handset will have ultra thin side bezels. Furthermore, previous reports indicated that the handset will have the same size of its predecessor but that it will have a larger screen, and therefore slimmer bezels.

The image below has been digitally obtained, by matching two available images of the front panels of the Galaxy Note 2 (left) and Galaxy Note 3 (right) – that means we’re yet to actually see a photograph taken of the two components placed side by side.

Again, assuming the Galaxy Note 3 front panel is real, then we could conclude that the handset is indeed going to be fairly similar to the Galaxy Note 2 when it comes to overall size. That wouldn’t be surprising considering that the Galaxy S4 has a similar size when compared with the Galaxy S3.

The Galaxy Note 2 has a 5.5-inch display, with the Galaxy Note 3 expected to pack a 5.7-inch panel. As for he Galaxy S4, the phone has a 5-inch display (measures 136.6 x 69.8 x 7.9 mm) while the Galaxy S3 has a 4.8-inch display (measures 136.6 x 70.6 x 8.6 mm).
