If you thought the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 release date caused a stir, just wait and see what’s in store for this year – a Galaxy Note 3 with a massive 6.3-inch touchscreen.
According to reports published by the Korean media, this year’s Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will not only reset spec and feature standards once and for all with an octa-core processor, but take redefine generous screen-real-estate with an enormous 6.3-inch screen.
Exciting stuff indeed, but if Samsung really is lining up such a gargantuan display panel for the Galaxy Note 3, the device itself will be only fractionally smaller than the Google Nexus 7 – a device that certainly is NOT a Smartphone in terms of size.
Could it be that the Galaxy Note 3 is therefore destined to take things one step too far in the world of the Tabphone hybrid?
It depends on how you look at the subject. First of all, cast your mind back to the not-so-distant past and you’ll remember that much of the world’s critical community cast aspersions on the Galaxy Note project as a whole, stating that the Tabphone market didn’t exist and was of no practical value to anyone.
And of course, how wrong they turned out to be – the Note and Note 2 were and all biblical success stories and so too could be a frankly bizarre creation from Samsung.
And what’s more, rumor has is that the South Korean tech firm has been working on flexible screen technology ahead of the Samsung Galaxy S4 release date, which could eventually see 100% bezel-less Smartphones and tablets hitting the market. This would mean that a 6.3-inh screen-toting Galaxy Note 3 may all-in-all be little, if any larger than 6.3-inches in total, meaning it would indeed be entirely feasible as a Tabphone – much smaller than the Google Nexus 7.
Under the hood, rumor has it that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will launch with a stunning octa-core processor, which not only delivers performance we can’t even imagine, but reduced battery drain by up to 90%.
As usual, all of the above must be digested with the usual weighty grain of salt, but it’s nonetheless important to remember all of the doubts and aspersions cast on the Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note before panning the concept of a 6.3-inch Tabphone.
It could indeed be a winner.
