Get ready for even more Galaxy Note III photos. It looks like we may be gearing up for a steady flow of Samsung leaks until next week, when the South Korean company is expected to officially announce the new phablet. Until then, check out these new pictures from eTrade Supply, which appear to confirm the device’s rumored screen size and reveal a few more details as well.
The Galaxy Note III display is rumored to measure 5.68-inches diagonally (up from 5.5-inches on the Note II), and eTrade claims to have confirmed earlier reports after physically measuring the device. The site also reveals that the new phablet will feature a slim 2.2mm bezel. The front panel is apparently just 1.8mm thick, suggesting that the device won’t be much bigger than the current Note, despite its noticeably larger screen. Samsung took this same approach while boosting the screen size on the Galaxy S4 from the Galaxy S III without making the device much larger.
Samsung won’t reveal the official Galaxy Note III until Sept. 4 at a media event in Berlin, but we already have a pretty good idea of what to expect. The device will likely come equipped with 1920 x 1080-pixel Super AMOLED display, a 3,200mAh battery, an S Pen stylus, and a 13-megapixel camera. It should be Samsung’s first phone to run the latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS with the company’s own TouchWiz UI on top.
