Another round of Galaxy Note III leaks have surfaced. This latest brings another ‘confirmation’ of specs by way of a report coming out of the Korean language MK News. Some of these specs appear to be a recap of what we have already seen, however there has also been a nice breakdown of what the various Galaxy Note III model numbers actually mean. To begin with though, lets talk some specs.
The Galaxy Note III should arrive with a 5.7-inch 1080p display. Specifically, with a display resolution of 1920 x 1080. This bit was confirmed by way of a UAProf listing which reflected the Note III with model numbers of SM-N900T and SM-N900A. The folks at Samsung-Updates have detailed those models numbers and it looks like the “T” and “A” will be heading to the US. The N900T is destined for T-Mobile and the N900A should be heading to AT&T.
Other Galaxy Note III model numbers show the N900V for Verizon Wireless and the N900S for Sprint. There was also mention of a N900R4 and N900P however those are currently unknown at the moment. The final two model numbers include the N9005 and the N900 with these being the Snapdragon and Exynos variants respectively.
While still not officially confirmed, the N9005 is expected to arrive with a Snapdragon 800 processor. That MK News report also tips an LTE-A version for those in Korea. That LTE-A model will be powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor. The other bit here, that same report is suggesting that a September announcement and the 5.7-inch display size has been confirmed. Of course, as we often point out — nothing has been officially confirmed until we hear it direct from Samsung.
Other still unconfirmed specs show the Galaxy Note III as having 3GB of RAM and a 13 megapixel rear-facing camera. The Note III had been previously expected to arrive with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, however given the recent Android 4.3 announcement there now appears to be some hope that could change. Regardless of which version of Android ships with the Note III, the handset will also have TouchWiz.
All that being said, we are expecting Samsung to end these rumors during IFA 2013, which takes place in September.
