With the Samsung Unpacked event (4 September) fast approaching, rumours of the upcoming Galaxy Note 3's specifications are bound to flood the internet until its official unveiling. Here is the latest report regarding the third generation Samsung phablet.
Samsung community website, SamMobile, citing its trusted insiders has released a set of key specifications of the two Galaxy Note 3 phablets variants.
It said that both models - SM-N900 and SM-N9005, would sport 5.68-inch Super AMOLED full HD 1029x1080p display and run on Android v4.3 Jelly Bean OS with 3GB RAM and come with 16GB/32GB/64GB storage variants.

SamMobile further claimed that Galaxy Note 3-SMN900 model would pack the company's in-house built 1.8GHz Exynos 5420 Octa-core processor and come paired with ARM Mali-T628 MP6 GPU.
