Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Coming To US With A 5.9-Inch Display?
According to the latest rumors, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 may debut in the US with a whopping 5.9-inch display. The new screen size has been confirmed by an executive from one of the key component suppliers for the company.
The report comes from The Korea Times which also notes that AT&T and Samsung executives are expected to meet in Seoul, South Korea this week to discuss the launch and AT&T promotion of the upcoming device. AT&T will likely get a look at the Galaxy Note 3 prototype during the meeting. Galaxy Note 3 is rumored to feature a 5.9-inch OLED display with Full HD resolution, Exynos 5 Octa processor, and LTE support among many other features. The report said the discussions are still underway to decide on the final list of features for the device.
Samsung had unveiled the Galaxy Pad gaming accessory for Galaxy S4, which generated a lot of speculation that the Note 3 may come with a 6.3-inch display because the accessory was compatible with a 6.3-inch touchscreen device as well.
Referring to the rumored 6.3-inch Samsung device, the report states it will be a separate product, but not a flagship device like the Galaxy Note 3. "A 6.3-inch phablet is also in the works with the company expected to introduce the model in the first half of this year. The 6.3-inch phablet will be a budget model not a flagship one in line with its strategy to expand product lineups," Android Authority translates the Korean report as saying.
It's thought that the successor to the popular Galaxy Note 2 will arrive by the end of August falling in line with the IFA 2013. However, it's highly likely that Samsung might organize its own Unpacked event in the US for the product release.
