Samsung Galaxy Note III to come with 5.7-inch display: Report
It is hard to keep Samsung devices away from the news. After a series of leaks around the Galaxy Note III, there's fresh news about the display size of Samsung's upcoming phablet.

Twitter user @evleaks has said that Samsung Galaxy Note III will come with a 5.7-inch display. This is in contradiction to earlier news reports that suggested that the phablet will come with a 5.99-inch full-HD Super AMOLED display with diamond pixel structure.

Previous rumours also mentioned that this phablet will be the first device by Samsung to deploy a plastic OLED display. The report further claimed that this new display will be thinner than the one on Galaxy Note II and come with an RGB stripe.

However, given @evleaks' past record, it is more than likely that Samsung Galaxy Note III will indeed sport with a 5.7-inch display

Earlier rumoured specifications for the upcoming phablet have indicated a Exynos 5 Octa-core processor, Mali 450 GPU with 8 cores and 3 GB of RAM. It's also rumoured that the successor to Samsung Galaxy Note II will feature a 13-megapixel rear camera.
