Samsung must be doing an especially poor job of keeping the Galaxy Note III under wraps on this particular day, as after the display panel of the device showed up in leaked pictures over at SonnyDickson.com, the folks over at eTrade Supply have published some photos of their own, of the same display panel.
According to the website, the display size measures at 5.68-inches, which is the size we’d had confirmed earlier along with other specs. Compared to the Note 2, the screen has a few changes. The sides of the screen are more like the S4 (which isn’t surprising), and the border is slimmer at 2.2mm. The total thickness of the display is apparently also really thin, at 1.8mm, so overall this shouldn’t be much larger than last year’s Note.
I would love to tell you that it’s possible that display panel is from a prototype Note III that Samsung is using to hide the real design, but I guess that would be a lie. Samsung is most likely going ahead with the same look on the Note III as the S4 and last year’s devices, and it’s just over a week left before we get to take an official look at it.
