Not that we’ll get a peek at the thing, but rumor has it that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be officially unveiled this week and its core specs and features laid bare to the bigwigs at AT&T.
As far as we’re concerned, chances are we’re still looking at a Q3 release date, most likely translating as September.
According to new insights revealed by the Korea Times, Samsung is to preview the device to top executives at AT&T as part of a preliminary drive to promote and market the Galaxy Note 3 ahead of its eventual launch. The report itself has now mysteriously vanished from the site, but was live for long enough for several other sources to crawl out of the woodwork and back what it was saying.
Chances are that the Galaxy Note 3 heading AT&T’s way in the near future won’t actually be a finished or even a working device, but more something of a dummy or a mockup made by Samsung’s development team. In short, it will give the overall impression of what the thing will look like, though in terms of specs and features it will be a case of words on paper rather than a Tabphone that can actually be put through its paces.
That being said, we already know we can pretty much bank on Samsung’s Exynos 5 octa-core processor as standard.
In the meantime therefore and until something leaks out of the meeting…which of course it will…it’s back to the rumor mill to fill in the gaps in terms of specs and features. If on the money, we’re looking at a 5.9-inch Tabphone with 1080p resolution and a generous serving of 3GB RAM under the hood. There’s also talk of storage options up to 128GB and the very real possibility of Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie right out of the box.
