All right, the entire phablet thing is starting to get ridiculous, size-wise. After all, it seems that the latest bit of news going around would be the next generation Samsung Galaxy Note, which would clearly make it the third iteration of the series, as the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The kicker about the Galaxy Note 3, if true, would be this - it will come with a 6.3-inch display, which is a massive jump from the current 5.5-inch display on the Galaxy Note 2.
A report from Korea Times did mention in passing that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will sport the aforementioned 6.3-inch display while relying on OLED technology to get the job done, and this bit of information was relayed by officials from a local parts suppliers.
There is very little else known about the speculated Galaxy Note 3, as the Galaxy Note 2 was just released recently. Assuming that the 6.3-inch OLED display becomes reality, it would certainly stretch the lines of the phablet market literally. Could this just be a misunderstanding or having the message lost in translation, concerning the possibility of a mid-range Galaxy Note tablet that measures 7-inches in size?
Do you think that 6.3-inches of viewing real estate is far too large for a phablet? After all, handling a 5.5-inch Galaxy Note 2 as a phone is already quite challenging for those of us with small hands, what more a behemoth that adds another 0.8-inches of viewing real estate diagonally across? Only time will tell whether the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be released as touted here, so it is time to play the patience card once again. Hopefully, we will not need to wait too long to find out.
One thing’s for sure, if the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 really carries a 6.3-inch display, it would be the perfect phone for Wreck It Ralph.
