One is the existing version while the other one is the next generation version. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 vs Galaxy Note 2 specs and features comparison makes interesting reading

The next Galaxy Note upgrade, maybe Galaxy Note 3, is in rumors now. It is likely to turn out with many striking features that will make it a great alternative to all the phablets in market. Various sources on web have burst with fresh rumors about the device. Here we take the chance to compare the current Galaxy Note 2 with the rumored features of the next Galaxy Note 3. This article will also discuss in what areas Note 3 should offer improvements over its predecessor.

Display Screen: Rumors predict a 5.9-inch display for Note 3. Of course, it might be a Super AMOLED 1080p panel as it is with the Galaxy S4. It had been in rumors for a while that the next Note would tout a 5.9-inch display. Now, giving proof for the speculations, as per Korea Times, a Samsung supplier has acknowledged the 5.9-inch size of Note 3’s display.

It is when the current Note 2 has a 5.5-inch 720p display that packs a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels at 267ppi. Expansion to the 5.5-inch size from its original’s small 5.3-inch is a nice move, indeed. This time again, Samsung might be forced to enlarge display size further because of the pressure from devices like LG’s Optimus G Pro (5.5-inch) and Huawei Ascend Mate 6.1 (6.1-inch display).

Processor: The processor inside the Note 2 is an Exynos 4412 Quad-based quad core Cortex-A9 clocked at 1.6GHz. It gets further support from 2GB RAM and a Mali-400MP graphical processor. As far as the advances in tech market are taken into account, the new upgrade to the line should come up with more innovative and powerful innards.

It is sure that the next Galaxy Note 3 would roll out with a brand new Exynos 5 Octa chipset that will be housed inside an advanced Cortex-A15 processor. 2GB RAM is commonly expected, however there is a chance for 3GB of RAM along with a superb processor. Of course, these specs will give extra boost for the phablet.

Firmware: The Note 3 landed in market with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box. It is now largely hoped to be one of the first devices to get the next major Android update, the Android 4.2 JB, which is to debut on Galaxy S4, set aside the Google Nexus devices. At the same time, the new Galaxy Note is also likely to run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box and it will be upgradeable to the projected Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.

Camera: It is a time the top-of-the-line phones are getting good quality and heavy rear cameras. All recent FullHD phones, better to say phablets, have received great rear cameras, especially the rear ones. We can hope for a big camera on the next Note also after the Galaxy S4. The current model has only an 8MP camera, which has now gone out-of-fashion on new devices.

Smart Features: The new line of Samsung phones are celebrated for their bunch of smart features. The second generation Note has Smart Stay and Smart Rotate eye tracking and S-voice sound recognition traits. Samsung has amazed fans by including some more great features to its Galaxy S4, which include Smart Stay, Smart Pause, Air Gestures and more. We are confident that the Korean tech maker will bring all these stunning smart features together on its next version Galaxy Note.

Price, Availability: The second generation Galaxy Note has been in stores since late last year. The device is now available for grabs for about $650 SIM free. But, we have no idea when Samsung would launch its successor for the public. Maybe, keeping line with the Galaxy Note 2’s release, we can look for the device’s release at the IFA Berlin in August. The Note 2 was put on display at the event’s 2012 edition.
