As we wait form Samsung to launch the Galaxy Note III, we’ve been trying to weed through the tangled mess that has become the rumors surrounding the phablet. There’s just so much information going around, some of conflicting, that’s it’s been a real chore trying to get a solid read on the Android. Earlier today we were talking about disagreements over just how large the Note III will really be, a recurring theme in these rumors. Today we get to check out some new evidence that sure seems to imply that Samsung has been testing at least three different screen sizes for the Note III.
This info comes to us from the Zauba database of Indian imports and exports, which has emerged as a really useful tool for spotting in-development smartphones. According to its records, Samsung’s been busy importing Galaxy Note III handsets for development and testing purposes, and the detailed descriptions available clearly identify 5.5-inch, 5.7-inch, and 6-inch variants.
The model numbers attached to these are some we’ve seen before – earlier this month, as many as eight such versions of the hardware were spotted in the same database, but lacking this detailed screen info at the time; the imports in question only occurred recently.
Now, this is far from confirmation that we’ll see the phablet launch in multiple sizes – all this points to is Samsung feeling-out all its options – but it does help to explain why Note III rumors have been all over the place.
