Samsung Galaxy Note 3 rumored to feature Snapdragon 800 CPU, 13-megapixel camera


The Samsung Galaxy Note 3, presumed to launch in the coming months, may arrive with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. Previous rumors, however, suggested that handset would feature a Samsung octa-core Exynos Octa 5 processor. So what’s the deal? Most likely, we will see different processors for different markets, much in the same way that other handsets (Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4) have done.

Additional details for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 are rumored to include a 13-megapixel camera with OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) and shutter functions. Reportedly, the camera could even employ a 3X optical zoom (we’re not so certain about this part) as well.

Given that Samsung employs a 13-megapixel camera in the Galaxy S4 we should not be surprised to see something along those lines for the next-generation Note experience.

We likely won’t see the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 until the second half of the year, perhaps around IFA. We might look for the phone come October or the anniversary of the current model.

Other rumors tossed around include a 5.99-inch or 6.3-inch display and 3GB RAM. Sit tight, there could be a whole slew of speculation and conjecture thrown our way in the coming months. As if you expected anything else…

      I wanted the Exynos Octa 5 no doubt. Bit regardless it’s the Galaxy Note 3 for me in October. Now I have more of a reason to hold onto my Galaxy Note 2.

    I’m excited about the camera zoom and ois features! Hope it will have them. I could care less which processor, snapdragon 800 or exynos 5, as long as its better than the current top flagships! (snapdragon 600)
    I really really hope the speaker is LOUD, as I am passing on the HTC One to wait for the note 3 for the huge screen, but I am sad to pass on the stereo loud speakers. Even if Samsung only sticks with one speaker, I want it to be Bluetooth speakers loud.
