Rumor mills have already churned out loads of rumors about the next Galaxy Note phablet. Samsung will surely build the Note 3 with many new features so as to put it a strong player in the phablet fray of the coming days. It is great to go through the latest rumors and predictions about the next generation Galaxy Note here. Read our Galaxy Note 3 rumor roundup after the break.

Mockup Being Shown to AT&T: Samsung is reportedly to meet with AT&T managers late March 2013 to show the mockup version of the Note 3. Reports have suggested that Samsung will be showing the dummy edition of the device to the carrier’s executives. It won’t be the prototype, which is yet to come out from Samsung. The handset, as per some insider sources, is to be rolled out at IFA at the end of August.

Rumored Specs: It is rumored that the Note 3 will come out of cover with a 5.9-inch larger FullHD Super AMOLED display. It might be the first big larger screen handset with 1080p quality. Huawei’s Ascend Mate, which is up with a 6.1-inch display, has only 720p resolution. The LG Optimus G Pro, though having 1080p resolution, has only a 5.5-inch display. Under the cover, the Note 3 is to pack a great processor, RAM and more.

Release Date: It is most likely that the next Galaxy Note will be unveiled at IFA 2013 in Berlin. Last year, Samsung chose the event to uncover the Note 3. According to SamMobile, the Korean tech maker will now unleash the Galaxy Note 3 at IFA 2013 and will start shipping it in the very next month. Along with it, the tech maker may also release its Galaxy Tab 3 at IFA 2013 in Berlin.

No Gargantuan 6.3-inch Display: Earlier, it was reported that the Note 3 would sport a massive 6.3-inch display, making it a rival to the Huawei Ascend Mate 6.1 also. Now, fresh reports suggest that device would only get a display below 6 inches in size. It is also said that the display screen will be a Super AMOLED FullHD one as it is with the Galaxy S4.

A Heavy Camera: Indeed, the new Galaxy Note will highlight a heavy rear camera. The current version of the device has a standard 8MP camera and it is hoped that its successor would pack a 13MP or further better camera with all modern day features including 1080p video recording, LED flash and a lot more.

Processor: The high-profile Samsung device will be powered by an Exynos 5 Octa SoC. Samsung rolled out this brand new chipset at CES 2013 and it is based on the big.LITTLE architecture, which is produced by the famous British chipmaker ARM. The chipset features four ARM Cortex-A7 and as many as Cortex-A15 cores to ensure stunning performance for the device.

Smart Features: The new Galaxy S4 has a collection of smart and bright features that include Smart Pause, Ari Gestures Smart Stay and more. Indeed, Note 3 will also keep some dazzling smart features including an advanced S-pen, a great selling point of the company’s Note series that contain the newly launched Galaxy Note 8.

“If we had to take a punt as to what other S-Pen features one can expect in the Note 3, then in our estimate, the new stylus will also allow users to interact with objects without touching the screen,” says Tech2.com. It is sure that Samsung will be adding all those smart features of S4 with the Note 3 as well. Users can just hover their hands or S-pen over the screen to control the device. Also, they can navigate web pages with simple eye moves.
