Samsung Galaxy Note II successor has been making quite a buzz recently. It was being speculated that Samsung Galaxy Note III may come with a 5.9-inch screen. Now, GSMArena
via Korea Times
is reporting that this is indeed confirmed news.
Korea Times mentions that they have picked this information up from Samsung's main parts suppliers. Furthermore, the report also states that the Samsung Galaxy Note III will be launched in US through telecom operator AT&T in the near future.
As per earlier rumours, Samsung Galaxy Note III will be launched at IFA 2013. IFA 2013 will be organised between 6 to 11 September in Berlin (Germany). There were also news reports that suggested that Samsung will be deploying LCD screens made by Sharp for its Galaxy Note III. The recently announced Exynos 5 Octa processor will allegedly power this phablet.
It is noteworthy that Samsung Galaxy Note II was announced at IFA 2012. It sports a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED HD display. Samsung Galaxy Note II is powered by 1.6GHz quad-core processor along with 2GB of RAM. There is an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1.9-megapixel front camera on the phablet.
The Note II has received a good response from the consumers. The company had shared that the device topped 5 million units in just first two months since it started shipping.
Samsung was the first company to foray into the phablet space in 2011 with its Samsung Galaxy Note device. However, in the recent past many companies have forayed into this category.
As per earlier news report it was suggested that Samsung will be launching Note III along with Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 at IFA 2013. But now there is a buzz that given the popularity of Note devices, the company may decide to launch the phablet earlier in an unpacked event in US on lines of Samsung Galaxy S4 launch.
