At this point we know nearly everything about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note III flagship smartphone phablet. Set to be formally announced up on stage Wednesday at the Samsung Unpacked event. Today though, we're still getting a flood of rumors, details, and even leaked "about phone" screenshots. The latest, a confirmation by one Korean carrier of the device internals.

While we can already nearly confirm it will sport a 5.68-inch 1920 x 1080p full HD display and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, there's been some back and forth regarding the processor powering the phone. From a 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800, to the 8-core Samsung 5 Octa in select regions, to even a budget friendly model for emerging markets.

We'll know everything once Samsung confirms it Wednesday, but Korean carrier KT Corporation spilled the beans a bit early today. Mentioning the Snapdragon 800 quad-core specifically. SamMobile is reporting only 2.5 GB of RAM under the hood, but every other leak thus far has claimed 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and a 13 megapixel camera on the rear. This phone is stacked.

The slide above from KT Corp shows the LG G2, which runs the Snappy 800, the Galaxy S4 LTE-A model, which also runs the same 800, and then hints at the Galaxy Note III. It's odd, but pretty much confirms what we already knew, and were expecting.

As a reminder September 4th is when we'll learn everything, early afternoon for those on the East Coast, so get excited. We'll be live in Berlin with all the info and pictures.
