Yesterday at IFA, Samsung took the wraps off the latest Galaxy Note Handset, and along with some great specs, came a screen size increases, moving from 5.5 inches, which was already pushing the boundaries, to 5.7 inches.
It’s not that the device itself is bigger, being almost exactly the same in terms of height and width, and being 1.1mm thinner than the previous generation, but, this will make it much more of a challenge to use the device with one hand. So if you’ve got small hands or plan to use one hand consistently, this device may not be your cup of tea.
Size aside, the Galaxy Note 3 is probably the best specced Android device to date, I’ve listed the specs below:
OS: Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
Network: Area dependant, up to 4G.
Processor: 4G variant – 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 3G variant – 1.9 GHz octa-core processor
Memory: 3GB of RAM
Storage: 32/64 GB variants with MicroSD card slot
Screen: 5.7 inch full HD super AMOLED display
Camera: 13 mp rear facing camera with BSI and smart stabilization. 2 mp front facing with BSI.
Connectivity: Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac , Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, IR, MHL 2.0
Dimensions: 151.2 x 79.2 x 8.3mm , 168g
Battery: 3200 mAh Li-ion
These are some nice specs, and along with these goes a new, leather feeling back, gone is the plastic. Whether the leather is an improvement or not is still to be seen, but one thing is for sure, I’m glad it’s gone.
