I agree that the note 3 needs to be pocketable.
I think we are heading to a device that is almost edge to edge with really small bezels and has no physical buttons. I dont think a 6.3" note 3 will be any bigger than a 6.1" Huawei Mate.
Drawing it in CAD i think its perfectly possible to fit a 6.3" screen in a device thats 85mm x 162mm (the note 2 is 81x151). I think this is still pocketable but others wont.
Steve J, 12 Feb 2013It took 11 months between the release dates of Note1 & 2, so it is likely we won't see Not... moreI'm inclined to believe that the Note III will be out October/November. My contract from the Note I will be up by then and will gladly be taking up that retention device for another 2-year contract. I'll need the same unlimited data internet service anyway.
I'm not in a hurry to get the Note III if it really does come out this month or the next. I just got the Note II last month.
16:10 ratio of the Note I was something I appreciated as it stood close to the A6 sized notebooks. I think this is where the design team came up with the concept and put in the Wacom pen as an enhancement to that concept of a Moleskine notebook - I mean this was where they started putting in the flip cover too, just like a notebook has. The marketing was cautious a bit when it started the launch for the Note I -they were giving out no downpayment subscriptions with the free flip cover, perhaps due to the unsuccessful Dell Streak 5". The Note I was ridiculed to be a strange big smartphone. I saw past that and got it immediately and I was immensely satisfied with what I was able to do with the device.
The S III carried over some of the concepts from the Note I. And then the concepts of the S III was carried over to the Note II like screen ratio.
Whatever the next Note is, I hope the S Pen gets better features and the screen resolution gets higher with the battery capacity becoming even more better. I'm curious about how the double quad-core processor will cut energy consumption by 70%. I just hope the weight isn't as heavy though.
It took 11 months between the release dates of Note1 & 2, so it is likely we won't see Note 3 till September 2013.
Samsung changed the image aspect ratio from 8:5 in Note1 to 16:9 in Note2. The reason is that 16:9 gives a narrower (less wide) phone.
So we can see that Samsung is conscious of size & would not want to stray beyond limits. The Note2 is a phone, not a caricature of one.
Imagine how ridiculous it would look, holding a 6.3 inch phone to your ear to answer a call.
Furthermore, pocket portability would be seriously compromised. A mobile phone has to be mobile ie pocket portable. 6.3 inches is too much.
Wait a minute....don't tell me Samsung are slyly referencing phallic symbolism!

The main thing that's attracting me to the Note series is the active Wacom stylus system Samsung has integrated. Without it, I would have gotten a Motorola Razr HD Maxx for a smartphone and a full Windows tablet with an active stylus.

It is meant to be a few mm wider than the note and 10-12mm longer than the note 2. This would indicate really small bezels and no buttons on the bottom.
