There have been rumours regarding Samsung working on the next Galaxy Note device for a while now, with alleged specifications and pictures of this phablet floating around.
Now, as per a report by Android Geeks, the Samsung Galaxy Note III will see the light of the day on September 4, 2013. The earlier rumours suggested that Samsung will be announcing the Galaxy Note III at IFA 2013, scheduled to kick off from September 6.
The report says that Samsung will hold an Unpacked event on September 4 to unveil the Note III in Berlin before IFA 2013 officially kicks off.
It is noteworthy that Samsung had announced its first Note device at IFA 2011 and the Galaxy Note II phablet was also launched at IFA in 2012. So it comes as no surprise that Samsung is choosing the same platform to launch the Note III.
A recent news report by Twitter user @evleaks suggested that Samsung Galaxy Note III will come with a 5.7-inch display. This is in contradiction to earlier news reports that claimed that this 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 a 5.7-inch display
The other rumoured specifications for Samsung Galaxy Note III include an Exynos 5 octa-core processor, Mali 450 GPU with 8 cores and 3GB of RAM. It's also rumoured that the successor to Samsung Galaxy Note II will feature a 13-megapixel rear camera.
