Updated post, more details in the end
Samsung’s Galaxy Note III might be getting official on September 4 in Berlin but we have the confirmation on the Android version in the device. According to the device certification spotted on DLNA website, this phablet will come with Android 4.3 on-board, making it the first (most probably) non-Nexus device to pack the latest Android version.
The DLNA certification also reveals that the device will support Wi-Fi a/ac/b/g/n.
In related news, Phone Arena is reporting that they have learnt from an anonymous source that Note III will come with a 3,450 mAh battery, which is a decent upgrade over the Note II. This is also make the device one of the few mainstream Android smartphones to come with such a high-capacity battery.
While other specifications are still unconfirmed but it is quite certain that Note 3 will come with 5.7-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display, LTE-A support and 13MP rear camera. Some rumours also indicate that Note III will feature 3GB of RAM in addition to Snapdragon 800 or Exynos 5 Octa processor.
Update: SamMobile has published a report just now, in which the site claims to have got its hands on the full specifications of Note III smartphone. According to the site, Samsung Galaxy Note III will come with the following specifications, which includes a 3200 mAh battery and it contradicts with the Phone Arena report. We are more inclined to believe SamMobile given their past track record.
- 5.68-inch Full HD Super AMOLED (1920 x 1080) display (almost 5.7-inch, it is very possible that Samsung dubs the same display as 5.7-inch)
- 1.8GHz Octa-core Exynos 5420 processor
- ARM Mali-T628 MP6
- 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM
- 13MP rear camera with Optical Image Stabilisation
