Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to feature 5.7-inch display and September launch

Latest Samsung Galaxy Note 3 rumours have suggested the third-generation ‘phablet’ device will run a 5.7-inch display, smaller than the 6-inch screen previously mooted for the phone.

Adding further backing to claims of a September 4 Samsung Galaxy Note 3 unveiled made earlier this week, the Korean Herald has suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S4 maker will indeed hold a Note 2 unveiling on the eve of IFA 2013, with the stylus bragging device to run a 5.7-inch screen.

If accurate, the new Samsung Galaxy Note 3 screen size could kick off a trend of incremental 0.2-inch size increases between Note models. While the original Note lined up at 5.3-inches, last year’s Samsung Galaxy Note 2 brought a 5.5-inch screen size to the table.

Building on the smartphone-turn-tablet hybrids’ sizeable foundations, the reports out of Samsung’s native Korea have also pegged the Huawei Ascend Mate and Sony Xperia Z Ultra rival as supporting 4G LTE connectivity options.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Rumours

Earlier this week, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 rumours claimed a September 4 release date was on the cards, with reported sources “close to the matter” suggesting the device would touch down on the press days leading up to IFA 2013. The Berlin based conference is to be held between September 6 and 11.

Although the phone has yet to be formally unveiled, a range of claimed Samsung Galaxy Note 3 rumours have been doing the rounds, with the S4 sibling tipped to run a hefty 3GB of RAM alongside the same 1.6GHz eight-core CPU found inside its 5-inch sibling, in certain markets at least.

Further Samsung Galaxy Note 3 rumours have pointed towards a 13-megapixel rear-mounted camera and a 1080p Full HD display resolution making the cut.
