In the past few days we were able to see on the internet the first ‘alleged’ images of a Galaxy Note 3 prototype posted by Sammobile and TechTastic. Today another photo leaked on the internet with the specification that it showcases a Note 3 prototype. As you will see in the image, the device is covered by a plastic cover that doesn’t really allow us to see the design. However what is obvious from the pictures is that the device looks a lot larger than the 5.9 inches that we are expecting the real Note 3 to be.

Here is the leaked photo:

The guys at GSMArena decided to investigate this picture so they searched for the Nokia model that is placed next to the alleged Note 3. They found out that it is actually a Nokia 1202. Using this, they figured that the Nokia is 105.3 mm tall so they could use this to figure out the real size of the device’s scree. After straightening the photo this is what they came up with:

By comparing the sizes of the Nokia with the other two devices they figured that the showcased device actually has a 6.3 inched screen, which most likely tells us it is a Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3. The other device is probably a Galaxy S4 Mini because of the 4.3 inched screen.

So you see, these are nothing but faked Mega 6.3 pictures that don’t even closely show us how the Note 3 will look like. Anyway, I’m actually happy that this is not the Note 3 as I am really having high expectations from Samsung with this one.
