Really, again? SamMobile, who has a good record when it comes to Samsung leaks, has reported that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will indeed arrive with a octa-core processor, which was unexpectedly absent from the UK and US release of the Galaxy S4 flagship. The device will reportedly also include an eight-core Mali 450 GPU and a healthy 3GB of RAM (up from 2GB found in the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 2). According to “inside sources”, the Galaxy Note 3 will run the Android 4.3 and not Key Lime Pie as was previously expected. The Note 3 will of course, include a large 5.99-inch Full HD display, the same Super AMOLED technology found on the Galaxy S4 with a ‘diamond pixel structure’ and a Full HD resolution (1080p), plus a 13MP rear camera. It is rumored that Samsung is still mulling over three different design options which seems a bit late in the game considering the device is expected to be announced in August/September 2013 (possibly at IFA 2013 in Berlin).
So will we really see a eight-core processor? Given the way Galaxy S4 leaks came about, we’ll remain skeptical this time until Samsung releases the official specs. Regardless, we can rest assured that when it arrives, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be the most powerful mobile computing platform on the planet.
