Samsung Galaxy Note 3 rumoured to sport 6.1-inch display and octo-core CPU

Do you think the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 already has a huge 5.5-inch display? According to report, the Korean tech giant is planning to make it even bigger. The Galaxy Note 3 is rumoured to sport a 6.1-inch display.336752

The news comes courtesy of The Korea Times. According to the site, “Samsung said the latest Exynos chips have an eight-core processor, which is more powerful than the current quad-core processors and enhance battery life.

“Samsung plans to use the Octa core processor in the upcoming 6.3-inch Galaxy Note III, which will debut later this year, according to the officials.”

If the Galaxy Note 3 does end up having a 6.1-inch screen, this would make it almost as big as the 7-inch tablets in the market such as the Google Nexus 7. If the report is true, will it be too big for our hands?

Aside from sporting an absurdly large touchscreen, it is said to sport an octo-core processor (eight cores). If this is the case, then it would definitely be a powerful device. You may think that the processing power will drain the batteries too fast. However, the new Samsung Exynos 5 octo-core processor will allow you to enjoy the benefit of eight cores without using too much power from the batteries.

Of course, since Samsung is yet to reveal details about the Galaxy Note 3, take this with a pinch of salt. The original and current versions of the Galaxy Note were unveiled in the third quarter of 2011 and 2012 respectively. So expect Samsung to lift the lid on the Note 3 by then.
