Samsung Galaxy Note 3 UA Profile Confirms 1080p Display, Odd ARM11 CPU Listing

by Vlad Andrici on July 9, 2013


There has been a lot of ambiguity concerning the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and its display. The latest reports are claiming that the phablet will come in 4 flavors: one packing a flexible/unbreakable display, one with a regular Super AMOLED panel, and two with an LCD display (with different cameras).

However, since we know almost for certain that the flexible/unbreakable display technology is not yet ready for prime time, we advise you to take the above info with a boulder of salt. We’re not saying it’s impossible, however it’s very unlikely.

On the other hand, what we were sure that it will happen is that the manufacturer will bless its upcoming phablet with an FHD display (1080p – 1080×1920). It seemed a logical move, and now we have the official confirmation. Check out the pics and join us after the break.

What you see above are screenshots from the User-Agents pertaining to two Samsung Galaxy Note 3 models (SM-N900A and SM-N900T).


Other than the display resolution, these UA-Profles are revealing that the Galaxy Note 3 will use an ARM11 CPU – which is kind of odd considering that the ARM11 family of processors has an ARMv6 architecture. Fore reference, the ARMv6 architecture has been used in the Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 (2007-2008 models), while the Snapdragon 800 uses an ARMv7 architecture.

Since these are official Samsung profiles we can only assume that the CPU field is, for now, some kind of placeholder.

What do you think? Let us know in the comments section.
