Rumor: Galaxy Note III to use the same build as the S4 (S3) again

After a awesome day from Google’s IO 2013, here is some bad news for all Galaxy Note fans. According to the insider of SamMobile, not only Samsung dropped the Flexible Displays for the Galaxy Note III but now has also dropped the renewed metal design. Yes Samsung did it again milking, milking and milking the Galaxy S3 (2012) design line! From what he heard internally is that the Galaxy Note III has same design as the Galaxy S4. This is because of the high expected amount. Samsung can not make the metal body right on time!

Our question… So Samsung why don’t you delay the Galaxy Note III like Apple delayed the iPhone? Oh yes to make more money, sorry… (Like you did with the S4 with the what-looks-like-brushed-aluminium-but-is-actually-plastic “band” around the outside of the device.)

Okay, maybe we have posted too much bad news about the Galaxy Note III, so now it’s time for some good news. The bezel of the screen isn’t that thick like previous Note devices, it’s more like the S4. The Galaxy Note III is rumoured to have an Octa-Core processor: Quad-core 1.9 GHz Cortex-A15 & Quad-Core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A7. 13 megapixel back camera, 2 megapixel front camera, latest version of Android, Samsung’s own TouchWiz and of course a 5.99” Full HD AMOLED display! Still unhappy? We do understand that when you see HTC One or the new Lumia 925. The perfect combination HTC One build / hardware from Samsung and Android OS.

Let’s hope our insider isn’t right this time, but sadly most of the time he is.
