Leaked Samsung Galaxy Note 3 specs point to eight-core processor and 3GB of RAM

New Samsung Galaxy Note 3 specs have leaked online, suggesting the stylus hosting handset will become the world’s most powerful smartphone.

Widely expected to make a jump in screen size, latest Samsung Galaxy Note 3 leaks have hinted that the third-generation smartphone turn tablet hybrid will play host to the same Exynos 5 eight-core processor afforded to the Samsung Galaxy S4 in certain markets.

Far from a one-trick pony, the prematurely outed Samsung Galaxy Note 3 specs, which have hit the web courtesy of an unnamed “trusted insider” speaking with serial Samsung tipster, SamMobile, have claimed that the device will also be the first handset to benefit from a whopping 3GB of RAM.

Following suit with its S4 smartphone sibling, it has been suggested that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 replacement will feature a Super AMOLED display with a 1920 x 1080p Full HD resolution. Unlike the 5-inch Samsung Galaxy S4, however, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is expected to host a 5.99-inch screen, with a digitiser allowing it to function with the boxed Samsung S Pen stylus.

Further adding to the already blossoming, yet still unconfirmed Samsung Galaxy Note 3 specs sheet, it is believed that the device will sport a 13-megapixel rear-mounted camera, as well as Google’s Android OS and Samsung’s Touch Wiz UI.

Despite Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie widely expected to be heading for a Google I/O unveiling later this month, the leaked specs have pointed towards the Note 3 running the current Android 2.2 Jelly Bean OS or a currently unconfirmed Android 4.3 update.

Far from the first Samsung Galaxy Note 3 rumours to do the rounds, yesterday a claimed “Samsung insider” reportedly revealed that a trio of Galaxy Note 3 prototypes are currently in the works, with one featuring a flexible screen.

Although Samsung has yet to officially acknowledge the existence of such a device, it has been repeatedly reported that a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date will be held in the weeks following an IFA 2013 unveiling in early September.
