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.
