Overnight, we brought you a couple of the latest Samsung Galaxy Note III rumors, suggesting both that the phone would be one of the first to launch with Android 4.3, as well as that it might get a hefty 3450mAh battery. Now some new Note III rumors have hit our desk, though they don’t quite align with all of that info.
What we get is a limited spec breakdown between the Note III’s SM-N900 and SM-N9005 variants – both model numbers we’ve associated with the phone. They claim that both handsets will indeed ship with Android 4.3, but that their batteries might see a more meager bump over the Note II’s, only moving up to 3200mAh.
This source describes both Note III models as having 5.68-inch 1080p OLED screens, 13-megapixel main cameras with optical stabilization, and options for 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB flash, all expandable via microSD. The SM-N9005 would support LTE, while the SM-N900 would not.
Then there are the gaps: some of these specs are only available through this source for one variant or the other. Specifically, while it claims the SM-N900 would run a new Exynos 5420, it doesn’t speak to the SM-N9005′s SoC. On the flip side, while this source asserts that the SM-N9005 will arrive with 3GB of RAM, there’s no matching info for the SM-N900.
Of course, we’ve heard many more Note III versions than just these two rumored, so there could be even more in store for us.
