Wondering what processor will power your next S Pen enabled device? While we had a hunch that Samsung would roll out different variants of the Note 3 in different markets, like it did with the Galaxy S4, we weren’t really sure that’s the case.

Now Sam Mobile, a site that we tend to trust when it comes to this kind of info, just published the list of countries and operators that will receive the Exynos 5420 or the Snapdragon 800 variant of the Note 3. Regardless of the processor, all devices will sport 3GB of RAM, confirms today’s report.

The 3G version of the Galaxy Note 3 bears the SM-N900 code number and features an octa-core Exynos 5420 processor, with an ARM Mali-T628 MP6 GPU and 3GB of RAM.

The LTE version of the Galaxy Note 3 is code numbered SM-N9005 and features a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, with an Adreno 330 GPU and 3GB of RAM.

An Exynos 5420-powered dual-SIM model code numbered SM-N9002 will be available in China.

According to Sam Mobile, several countries where LTE is available will get both versions of the Note 3, with the Snapdragon 800 model to roll out first. The list of countries and carriers is supposedly not final, so you shouldn’t take it as official info just yet.

In addition to the processor and RAM, we also know that the S Pen-enabled device will feature a 5.68-inch AMOLED display, a 13MP camera with optical image stabilization, and a 3200 mAh battery.

The device is expected to sport a variation of the design of the Galaxy S4, with overall dimensions said to remain unchanged over the Galaxy Note 2.

Samsung is widely expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 3 on September 4, at its Unpacked 2013 Episode 2 event.
