The phablet niche continues to grow in popularity, and has seen a number of additions from a variety of manufacturers in recent months. However, Samsung’s popular Galaxy Note 2 remains a market leader within the niche, clocking up millions of sales and achieving widespread critical acclaim since it hit the market back in September 2012.
Of course, the success of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has naturally led to plenty of excitement for the Galaxy Note 3, and rumours about its features in recent months. Earlier this week, GSM Arena reported that a Korean publication has revealed leaked specifications for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, with many backing up previous claims of its key features.
The leaked spec list shows that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will incorporate a 5.7 – 6 inch super AMOLED display with a 1080p resolution, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset or Exynos 5 octa-core processor (hinting at LTE), 13 megapixel camera and a slim profile of just 8 millimetres, and weighing in at 138 g.

Additionally, the Galaxy Note 3 is also reported to include 3 GB of RAM, surpassing that of any device which is currently on the market. Of course, Samsung will be keen to ensure that the Galaxy Note 3 offers the highest possible performance, so 3 GB of RAM certainly fit the bill. It also seems like a logical progression, as the original Galaxy Note model came with 1 GB of RAM, with 2 GB of RAM on the Galaxy Note 2.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is expected to sport a similar design and appearance to the Galaxy S4. While there has been speculation of an aluminium casing, it seems more than likely that the phone will continue to utilise plastic, as previous Galaxy S and Galaxy Note models have.
The majority of these features back up previous claims and rumours, making them seem more than likely. Samsung is set to announce the Galaxy Note 3 on the 4th of September at the IFA expo in Berlin. In the weeks leading up to its announcement, we expect to hear more information about the device, so we will be sure to keep you posted with the latest details.
