  1. Hurray! I’m so excited about this phablet. :3
    I suppose that the LTE variatn will come with the Snapdragon 800 soc with Adreno 330 and the “non-LTE” will also pack 3GB of RAM. That’s what the logic should tell us.

    There’s one thing I feel a little bit dissapointed though. The battery :( We’ll see how it handles. GREAT WORK SAMMOBILE! :D

    • Yeah I agree definitely NOT HAPPY the battery should’ve been 3450mAh or 3500mAh. But it’ll be easy to get a higher compacity battery either way. It’s definitely a day one purchase for me my friens

  2. Please ask your insiders too when will Galaxy Note II and Galaxy S III receive Android 4.2.2 or Android 4.3 update?

    • we did a mistake by purchasing note2 :/ samsung just wants da customer to purchase their new flagship device they should learn from sony how to treat high end device they are releasing their flagship n in the same time they are providing updates for their device which helped them to regain their share in market

      • You mean YOU did a mistake. I like my Note II very much and I’ll buy Note III as soon as it’s released.
        And I don’t think Sony has regained their share in market.

        • even i luv my note2 but when i used my frnds s4 for 30 mins n i was impressed with rhe smoothness of 4.2.2 with touchwiz.. i m pretty much sure that the reason behind not releasing the update for note2 and s3 is that samsung is afraid that if they vl release the update then their will be down in sales percentage of their s4 …

          • When I buy a phone is for the features it currently has, not what I hope it will have in a few months unless BEFORE I purchased the device the manufacturer said there would be a SPECIFIC update.

            Nexus devices usually get the latest android first. So if you want the latest Android most of the time get a Nexus.

            Its not only the 4.2.2 on the S4 that makes it fast, its the upgraded hardware compared to the S3 so having the 4.2.2/4.3 update on S3 would not mean you get S4 performance.

            Finally, there are dozens of custom ROMS that have 4.2.2 and 4.3 for the S3. You don’t have to wait for official updates to get the latest Android on your device. Custom ROMs mean you could tweak almost everything to get the best performance from whatever device you have, all personally customised for you. There just is more legwork on your part. Samsung needs to make the software general for 95% of people. You customise it to make it personal for you.

          • I disagree. I love TouchWiz. I love TouchWiz on Galaxy S4. And Android 4.3 update will bring all S4 TouchWiz functions. I agree Android 4.2.2/4.3 would not we get S4 performance. But absolutely there will be performance improvements and stability enhancements. Is not that right? So I don’t wanna use custom ROMs. I love stock Samsung. Is not that right?

          • of course. you are right. still i am waiting 4.2.2 or 4.3 update for my note2. and i have also mega 6.3. its 4.2.2 this os is really fast then note2 4.1.2. new touchwiz is favless n awesome

      • Sony has never had any “market share”. Samsung sells 10 times as many phones as Sony. I don’t think Sony can teach them anything.

    • Please. You need to buy phablet/phone from other manufacturer if you would like to get any major OS update in the near future (within 20 years).

      • I am Galaxy S III user. I loved this phone too. But I can’t buy newest flagship devices. So I want to see Android 4.2.2 or Android 4.3 update with new TouchWiz. There is a shame for us because Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and Galaxy S II Plus got this update. But we are still waiting. Do you understand?

        • even i m waiting i juzz shared my opinion

  3. LOVE U SAMMOBILE….!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Ah Danny my request for exclusive info was promising :)

    Thank you :)
    We want moreeeeeee still hehe.

    Battery is little bite small.. 3500at least.

    • Damn…. I wanted the octa-core model but wtf are they leaving LTE out? Seriously a late2013 flagship phone without LTE?

      • My country does not have LTE (and so it is with most of the world). These areas don’t deserve to get an octa core model because we don’t have LTE?

        The LTE model would have a great CPU as well, either the Snapdragon 800 or another Exynos 5 processor so don’t worry.

  5. I’m disappointed. The galaxy Mega 6.3 is a good size. I was expecting Note III to be 6 inch…

    • Lol…i hope they just stick to the right size .. and not suppose to get bigger or taller.. At least i still can get it through my jeans pocket.

  6. Undoubtably the LTE variant will have a Snapdragon S800.

  7. Can’t wait for this bad boy , this will be my note 2 successor

  8. wooooawww sooo big!!!

  9. I wonder both versions will have FM radio or not?

  10. The screen size is okay I guess, I was kind of mad when someone said it will be 6.3 or 5.9 inches as that is just oversized even for my hand so good job Samsung (It’s just my prefference) as for the SoC I hope it’s Snapdragon 800 that thing is a beast..until next Apple Chip or else.

    • So wait, the Korean/International variant will get Exynos 5420
      And the USA will get the Snapdragon 800? Because according to Google Exynos is overpowered compared to Snapdragon, WTF Samsung? AGAIN? First Quad Core for S3 then Dual Core. Same for S4. Come on keep your shit together.

  11. Not a big jump on battery capacity, either that I’m pleased with it.

    Waiting for September 4!

  12. Still 16gb ? What the fuck !!!!

  13. This is a disappointment spec, just like s3 to s4.
    Mega out look is very nice if it has Note 3 spec.
    Samsung, keep it on for making money by using this kind of method. I believe we will heading to the Windows phone soon or later.
    Thanks for your update.

  14. Note 3 is gonna be extremely slim. That’s why they only marginally increased the battery. I’m guessing thickness would be less than 8mm. Wonder whether that’d impact on the s-pen.

  15. World best Droid Phone cuming……..

  16. i would say i’m already impressed with both Note, Note II…and frankly to say.. 90% of my family and cousin use sammy S3 or note. It was really a killer product and long awaited update or what..none of our concern bcoz the device itself was the best to begin with..the best of camera, the best UI, the best screen. Would you guys agreed with me?

  17. I was hoping for a 5.75 screen in the same form factor. 5.5 -> 5.63 seems like a really small jump. I’m concerned that an LCD screen won’t be as energy efficient as AMOLED. Couple that with a smaller battery than I’d like and I’m a bit concerned. Seems like my note II with a slightly faster processor and, knowing ATT, a locked bootloader.

    If that’s the case I’ll be looking at Samsung’s competitors when my contract comes up. Love the Note II, but I don’t use that many things that need full HD.

  18. So Malaysia will be getting both variants as it was with the S4. As usual to my fellow Malaysians here, the usual tactic by Samsung via telcos/carriers is to seed out the non-LTE SM-900 Exynos 5420 1st and the SM-9005 AFTER that. Don’t make the same S4 mistake again.

    Gotta say though even if LTE are still in its early rollout stage here in Malaysia, I’m wondering how many morons does Samsung aim to score w/ the SM-900…like seriously?
