Galaxy Note III to be more of the same

A new report suggests that Samsung has dropped the premium build and flexible display prototypes of their upcoming Galaxy Note III and chosen the one that will reportedly have the same design originally introduced in the Galaxy S3, much akin to their latest flagship Galaxy S4.

Samsung is hard at work innovating on their next phablet flagship, the Galaxy Note III. However, there's not much good news about the Green camp's next Note device. SamMobile reports that not only did Samsung drop the flexible display design, but also let go of the more premium metal body in favor of the same plastic (polycarbonate) build as the earlier Note 2 (and Galaxy S4/S3); the reason being that Samsung simply cannot prepare the design on time for the launch of their upcoming device. And instead of delaying the phablet, they will reportedly take the easy way out.

This is how the Note III will look, albeit with a bigger display and thinner bezel

Internal sources say that the Note III will have the same design as the recently launched Galaxy S4 (a design which was originally introduced with last year's flagship Galaxy S3). Needless to say, the design is a bit overused now and people are already tired of it. SamMobile also posted the rumored specifications for the Galaxy Note III (which are nothing short of impressive) and yes, a 6 inch screen is in tow.
