While Galaxy Note 2 continues to be a hot selling phablet, the rumor mills are always too busy churning out information about the Galaxy Note 3. As far as the upcoming flagship phablet from the South Korean tech giant is concerned, almost every now and then there appears to be new report that arises more speculation.
The most reliable Samsung centric website SamMobile has stated that one of their insider has come up with an exciting detail. According to the report, Samsung seems to have three prototypes of Galaxy Note 3 in the works. Of the trio, one will be based on the Galaxy S4 design, another with a flexible display as in the recent rumors and the third one with an all new design.
The Galaxy S4 like prototype seems to be thinner, flatter and to come with a metal band and rounded corners with a reduced bezel at the top and bottom. Also, Galaxy Note 3 is speculated to come with an unbreakable and highly durable display on the flexible prototype.
Of course, a flexible display Galaxy Note 3 paves way for more doubts, as an earlier report suggests that such a build might result in supply chain issues that might delay the handset from being a viable release. But, a flexible display from Samsung is long rumored and it is likely that the company will launch it this year as LG is planning to bring its own smartphones with such a display by the end of 2013.
Going by earlier reports, Galaxy Note 3 could boast a 5.9 inch LCD full HD 1080p display, 2GHz Exynos 5 Octa processor, 2GB RAM, 13MP rear camera, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS, new metallic design and to also come with the iconic S Pen stylus.
As of now, Samsung has not confirmed anything about the Galaxy Note 3 and all these rumors should definitely be taken as a dose of skepticism. As Samsung released the Galaxy Note 2 in the fall of 2012, there is a good chance the company will launch the Galaxy Note 3 during the same timeframe, which could be the IFA 2013 event in Berlin.
