We have had plenty of speculation on the specifications of the upcoming phablet from Samsung, the Galaxy Note 3. Judging from what we have seen in the Galaxy S4, it's easy to speculate the Note 3 will be a little more powerful than that. For the first time however, we have an 'official' confirmation for the Galaxy Note 3 specs from a Samsung Insider in front of Business Daily from Korea. The specifications that I am referring to indicate a 5.7 inch Full HD screen, 3 GB RAM memory, a Snapdragon 800 processor with LTE-Advanced support, just like the LTE-A Galaxy S4 released in Korea, and all of this will be powered by the recently released Android 4.3. The official reveal is supposed to take place in Berlin at the IFA even on the 4th of September. Until then all of this is just speculation. The Galaxy Note 3 is also rumored to come with a flexible display and a fingerprint recognition chip, even though some reports indicated that these features have not reached the production capacity required for the Galaxy Note 3 which is expected to sell in very large numbers. This indicates that these technologies will not come this fall.
