With the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 not likely to hit store shelves within the next couple of months, the intervening period makes it ideal for the rumor mongers to play around with the device’s yet unannounced specs. We have also been treated with some leaked specifications in the past, including the most recent one, that of an image that is supposed to have been shot with the Note 3’s 13 megapixel camera. That’s speculative though, as the leak mentioned the picture has been shot with a device codenamed GT-N7200, one that seems to come equipped with a 13 megapixel camera.
Now the Note 3 has also been rumored to carry a 13 megapixel camera. Further, the model name GT-N7200 can also be associated with Note 3 considering the current Galaxy Note 2 sports the model name of GT-N7100. This apart, the Note 3 has also been rumored to carry a 1.6 Ghz processor while running Android 4.3. Interestingly, the GT-N7200 has again been spotted, this time in an AnTuTu benchmark test that mentions the device to run Android 4.3 while having a 1.6 Ghz chip. The current S4 is also powered by a chip having the same clock rate though the software is a future Android version that expected to be launched in June.
However, coming to the practical side of it, benchmark tests can always be tampered with so there is no surety it’s the GT-N7200 that indeed has been referred to in the tests. Maybe we will come across with a few more of such considering the phablet is still being tested in its various configurations. There is still some time for the phablet to be launched with rumors pointing out Samsung might choose the IFA event in September to launch the device. It will be really interesting to see how things pan out in the future.
