Samsung Galaxy Note III prototype unit allegedly photographedAlex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
Following the original Galaxy Note's launch in 2011, Samsung has turned the device into a family of S Pen-equipped products, including the Galaxy Note 8.0 and Galaxy Note II. That lineup is expected to grow later this year with the addition of the Galaxy Note III, and while we'll likely have to wait until IFA in September for the device's official unveiling, today we're getting a peek at some photos of what may be a prototype unit in the wild.
SamMobile claims to have images of a prototype version of the Galaxy Note III, just lounging around on a desk. The device shown in the photos looks fairly prototype-y, sports a couple of stickers on its face and corners that are a bit less rounded off that the Galaxy Note II. There's also a physical home key, a menu key to its left and a back button to its right.
Since this device is said to be a prototype, it's possible that the final Galaxy Note III that's released to customers may end up looking somewhat different than the unit shown in these photos, That said, the images could give us an early peek at some of the features that the Note III may sport, such as a thinner bezel that ought to make it easier to cradle that large display in your hand. The Note III's spec sheet is also rumored to include a 5.99-inch display and 13-megapixel camera. What features would you like to see Samsung stuff into its next Galaxy Note smartphone?
