Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Has 6.3-inch Display And Exynos 5 Octa Processor

While some of you are still fawning over your spanking new Samsung Galaxy Note 2, here is more information on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 that is a surety for a 2013 release. The thing is, whispers in the past pointed to a 6.3-inch display, which would certainly place it far closer to tablet territory than any other phablet before it - even the Huawei Ascend Mate. We also look forward to the inclusion of Samsung’s very own Exynos 5 Octa processor which was recently unveiled, sporting an eight-core segment.

Basically, the Galaxy Note 3’s Exynos 5 Octa processor will merge four high-performance cores alongside an equal number of low-consumption core in order to deliver what Samsung claims to be the best of all worlds. One should take note that only one set of four cores will remain active simultaneously, so this is not a true blue octa-core CPU - yet. We will most probably have to wait for some time before that happens.

It would also be interesting to note what kind of battery the Galaxy Note 3 will carry, considering the large display that will surely feature Full HD resolution at the very least, not to mention the Exynos 5 Octa processor that hopefully, will not be a strain on the battery life after a full day outside of the home.

Purchasing a smartphone these days seem to require us to whittle it down to yet another two categories: do we take the the phablet route or not? Assuming the phablet experience is to be treasured above a regular smartphone, then it is time to revamp one's wardrobe and accessories to accommodate such a behemoth in our pockets.

    Sammy, please dont go to the Tablet territory. I know you guys like the huge ass screens but 6.3 is just too many!
    But I'm really looking forward to that Exynos Octa Core. That is going to be THE battery juice saver.

    Maybe there won't be any increase in battery or overall size. A 6.3" screen will fit in the present footprint edge to edge even with camera and microphones/sensors.
    The battery might not need to be any larger due to power savings from the core setup.
    I wonder why they didn't do a dual core and quad core for added power saving in the idle mode... does each require different systems to run it, so problems switching from one to the other?
