Snapdragon 800 to power the Samsung Galaxy Note III - read the full textThe latest report coming from Samsung's homeland suggests the next Samsung Galaxy Note III will be powered by Qualcomm's top-notch Snapdragon 800 platform instead of the octa-core Exynos.

I have never purchase any of the samsung galaxy range of product. But with this chipset of snapdragon800 and adreno 330 on Galaxy Note III, I am gamed. Samsung should make a dual sim variant of the phone for African markets.

The Note 3 for sure will go head to head against Sony's rumored phablet Togari and the smaller flagship phone Honami. This will definitely be a great year for a whole lot of OEMs but surely people will go for either the popular Samsung or the best designed and more durable Sony. Galaxy S4's reign might not be that long coz there's a possibility that a better smartphone might be launched and though Note 3 is in a different category, still we can't deny the fact that some will choose it over the S4 and for sure people like me who want something unique but quality devices would possibly go for Sony. For sure, Samsung will still be supported by many but the fact is they can not produce a device with a premium feel. Sony and HTC and even LG can beat Sammy in design category at anyday and I believe Sony will get back the crown of being the number one phone manufacturer that they were like in early 2000s to 2009 when Sammy was still hated by many for bad screens and speakers on their flagship phones.

That is great news if its true, snapdragon is a much more stable chipset. In regard to this complains and jokes about screen size..for those who like small screen size, why are you looking at note 2 or 3 anyway, just look somewhere else.
People like bigger display as its easier to look at things and work on things.
I work in shopping mall and I see so many people carrying note2...

This in particular baffled me a bit when Samsung went for a PowerVR chip instead. That being said I'm sure that by now jaded users are also anxious to move on from the current Mali 400 and T-604 setup. Weird thing about T604 is that if we're to talk about probably the only SoC equipped w/ that being the Exynos 5250, Samsung seems more comfy at selling that to Chinese OEMs like Voyo instead?
