Samsung Galaxy Note 3 mock-ups, S4 vs. flexible
The hype surrounding Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 has been increasing, and rumours state the Galaxy Note sequel is expected in September, although the latest leaks point towards three possible Galaxy Note 3 prototypes.
Last weekend it seemed that the Galaxy Note 3 had been revealed with rumoured specifications for a smartphone with a 5.9-inch display, which had been thanks to a photo leaking.
According to SamMobile, this is not the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, but ZOPO ZP950 as a non-branded Android phone that has a 5.7-inch display. The publication has a good track record of Samsung insider details, but occasionally they get it wrong.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 prototypes – SamMobile do not leave it there though. The publication claimed their insider knows about three Samsung Galaxy Note 3 prototypes in the works, which include a Galaxy Note 3 with a flexible display, with a completely new design and also a Galaxy Note 3 with an S4 inspired design.
We have already seen the concept of a Galaxy Note 3 with a similar Galaxy S4 design, which uses the same metal band and similar rounded design.
According to reports, Samsung is committed to one of the three Galaxy Note 3 prototypes, including the Galaxy S4 design inspiration. One of the latest rumours suggests the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will feature a new design, which uses metal instead of plastic. This rumor suddenly appeared around mid-April.
We first heard rumours in late March that the Galaxy Note 3 would be flexible and unbreakable. This display would provide a more durable smartphone screen that measures 5.9-inches and has a 1080P high-definition resolution.
There are a lot of rumours about flexible displays for Samsung devices, and these started as early as with the Galaxy Note 2. Despite the commitment of LG Electronics and other competitors to provide a flexible display smartphone in the last quarter of 2013, the new rumours suggest Samsung is an important part of efforts to produce flexible display smartphones and this might start with the Galaxy Note 3 if rumoured production problems can be fixed.
The latest details point to a Samsung Unpacked event in September in Berlin, which would be during IFA 2013. If this were true, it would likely be the Galaxy Note 3 that’s set to be released in the fourth quarter of 2013. There is no official information about availability, but the Galaxy Note 3 might arrive on multiple carriers in the United States, just as the Galaxy Note 2 did.
