Rumor has it that Sammy's upcoming phablet flagship dubbed the Galaxy Note III will not only pack an "octa-core" CPU but an octa-core GPU as well. Unleash the beast.

With the Galaxy S4 out in the markets, rumor mill is down to picking up information about Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note III. The latest report by SamMobile sheds more information regarding the internal specifications for the phone, who have in turn received their information from a "trusted" source.

Samsung Galaxy Note III Specifications

  • 5.99 Inch Super AMOLED 1080p Display
  • Exynos 5 Octa Core CPU
  • ARM Mali450 MP8 Octa Core GPU
  • 3 GB Of RAM
  • 13 MP Rear Camera
  • Android 4.2.2 or Android 4.3
  • TouchWIZ Nature UX 2.0

Beating the previous high 5.55 inch Super AMOLED display in the Note II, the newer and faster (and larger) Note III will pack the latest Samsung Exynos 5 Octa chipset which has 4*ARM Cortex A15 + 4*ARM Cortex A7 in big.LITTLE configuration. The 13 MP camera isn't hard to believe, being more of an evolutionary increment to the 8 MP sensor in the Note II. 3 GB of RAM raises many eyebrows but it's totally possible, with Samsung producing their own memory chips for the same. What's most interesting is the use of an ARM Mali450 GPU in octa core configuration. A quick reminder, the current Exynos 5 Octa in the Galaxy S4 packs PowerVR's SGX544 MP3 GPU.
