The Samsung Galaxy Note 3, undoubtedly the most hotly anticipated phablet for 2013, has been freshly served with two new leaks. While the first claims to be the AnTuTu benchmark score of the new Note, the second is a pair leaked manual schematics that reveal details which were not known till today.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is a confused device. Confused because it can’t decide which set of specifications it wants to pack and get released to the market with. Samsung has been playing around with multiple prototypes of the Note 3 with varying specifications, varying screen sizes (5.7-inch and 5.99-inch) with one report saying that a 5.99-inch foldable display model was also undergoing testing. Leave all that aside for we have a pair of leaked manual schematics which confirm a 5.7-inch display for the not-so-giant-anymore (Xperia Z Ultra at 6.44-inch) Note 3. The schematic reveals a 13 MP camera, nothing new, with a Xenon flash at the back, definitely new. Additionally, the phone is said to pack a dedicated camera button, but we’d take that with a pinch of salt. Camera buttons have been missing on high-end Galaxy phones for a while now (3 years and counting).

Samsung’s new Note 3 will either pack an enhanced Exynos 5 Octa (clocked at 1.9 GHz instead of 1.6 GHz) or a Snapdragon 800 SoC depending on the region. India will most likely get the Octa-core version of the Note 3, just like the Galaxy S4. The leaked AnTuTu benchmark reveals a very high 33,082 score, certainly beats everything else out there (for now). Additionally, the Galaxy Note 3 will reportedly come with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean instead of the slightly old Android 4.2.2 OS.
