Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Expected Price & Specifications
It is still not far when Samsung announced and released the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and sold it like hot cakes, but the rumours about its successor are sprouting up already. We are trying to speculate and make a calculate guess about the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 price & specifications.
Last year, the norm about a flagship smartphone processor was a quad-core ARM Cortex A9 architecture based CPUs and a dual-core or better GPU. But now the industry has moved forward to a newer ARM Cortex A15 based CPU architecture be it either dual or quad core arrangement. Take for example, the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro or Nvidia Tegra 3, both are ARM Cortex A15 (or alike) based quad-core CPUs. These processors are used in flagship devices such as Sony Xperia Z and HTC Butterfly. But considering that Samsung does something extra, they have recently announced their brand new Exynos Octa processor which features 8 CPU cores, of which, 4 CPU cores are based on ultra-powerful ARM Cortex A15 while the other 4 CPU cores are based on low-power consuming ARM Cortex A7 based architecture. This arrangement of high performance and low power consumption CPUs is called as ARM’s big.LITTLE architecture. It will feature PowerVR SGX 544MP3 GPU for all the graphical processing which is said to have double the performance compared to Exynos 4 quad-core processors. It can also feature RAM of 2 GB in size for better multitasking.
It will most probably feature a 13 MP autofocus camera with LED flash and a 2 MP or better front-facing camera. The video recording capabilities may feature 1080p at 60 frames per second or 2560 x 1600 recording @ 30 frames per second. It may also feature real-time HDR video recording similar to the recently announced Sony Xperia Z.
It is high time that Samsung moves its screen with full HD 1080p resolution with screen size of up to 5.5 Inches. This will bring the pixel density of the screen of up to 350 ppi or better.
Samsung Note 3 Price (Expected)
The Apple iPhone 5 and HTC Butterfly will have price of INR 45K in India. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 was released with a price tag of around INR 40K at launch, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will have a price of above INR 40K at launch.
