A new purported image of the upcoming Galaxy Note 3 flagship smartphone has hit the web, although it can’t be confirmed just yet.

This isn’t the first rumored image showing the next-generation Galaxy Note smartphone model, and it’ll surely not be the last, so, as always, we advise taking it with the appropriate amount of salt.

Assuming this is the real deal – or maybe another prototype of the device? – we’re looking at a smartphone that seems to have a large screen, small bezel and rounded corners.

Strangely enough, the following picture doesn’t show the entire handset, only a portion of its top and right side – you’d think that those people leaking such details about an upcoming device would have time to take better pictures of the handset.

The Galaxy Note 3 is expected to pack a 6-inch touchscreen display – which is exactly what the device in the image above is said to offer – and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor under the hood.

Traditionally, Galaxy Note models are unveiled at the German IFA show in September, but new rumors suggest that the Galaxy Note 3 could arrive earlier to make up for poorer than expected Galaxy S4 sales.

However, unlike in previous years when it had little competition in the “XXL” smartphone department, the Galaxy Note 3 will have at least a couple of formidable adversaries this year, including the HTC One Max (T6) and the Sony Xperia Z Ultra (ZU or Togari). Both devices are yet to be unveiled, although the latter should be announced in less than a week.

Are you looking forward to the Galaxy Note 3, or will you buy a different large smartphone?
