A couple of Galaxy Note 3 sketches reportedly coming from the handset’s user manual have hit the web revealing some of the device’s specs, while a new purported AnTuTu benchmark result for the handset has also surfaced.

Dutch publication Sim Only Radar has received the images below from a tipster who said they originate from the official Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N900) manual.

One of the images contains a list of specs for the handset, which mentions the following:

  • 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display
  • 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor / Exynosy 5 Octa processor
  • 13-megapixel with auto-focus, 1080p video recording and Xenon Flash
  • AGPS
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • USB, USB OTG support
  • Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n/a
  • Android Jelly Bean (unspecified version)

If the sketches are real, the Galaxy Note 3 could feature a dedicated camera button – some rumors claimed that the phone will come with advanced camera functions such as optical image stabilization. Otherwise, the device shown in these images seems to be similar to the Galaxy S4 when it comes to overall design.

Additionally, Android Spin has apparently found a new AnTuTu benchmark result for the SM-N900. According to the image below, an SM-N900 handset powered by a 1.9GHz processor (could be an Exynos 5 Octa chip) and running Android 4.2.2 scored 33082 in the benchmark test.

A previous purported AnTuTu benchmark of the Galaxy Note 3 showed a score of almost 28000 for the device – at the time however, the device had a different model number (GT-N7200) and packed a 1.6GHz CPH and ran Android 4.3, according to that particular rumor.

Naturally, we’ll label today’s Galaxy Note 3 news as just unconfirmed rumors at this point, as such images and benchmarks can always be doctored, so make sure you take them with the appropriate amount of salt. We’ll be back with more details about the handset once we have them.

Thanks, Josh!
