Ok, we know that most people take for granted the fact that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (which will most likely be announced on September 4th, during Samsung’s Upacked 2 event) will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 (the majority of Note 3 models anyway).
However, we need to keep in mind the fact that Samsung hasn’t really announced anything about its upcoming phablet and everything we think we know is based on rumors, leaks and suppositions which, like always, are subject to change (if they have been real in the first place).
The good news is that now we can be sure that at least one of the Note 3 models will be powered by the Snapdragon 800 SoC. Join us after the break for more.
What you see above is a slide from a press conference recently held by KT Corporation (formerly known as Korea Telecom), one of the major Korean carriers. NOTE: the annotation has been added by us, it wasn’t on the original slide.
The conference has been centered around “broadband LTE” and when talking about LTE Advanced and the Snapdragon 800 SoC, the carrier also mentioned the Galaxy Note 3 along with the LG G2 and the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A.
So, even though it doesn’t come straight from Samsung, this is as official as it gets until the 4th of September. Now it remains to be seen if the rumors according to which Samsung is having issues with its Exynos 5420 Octa SoC are true and if indeed the first 4 million Note 3 units will be powered by Qualcomm’s alternative.
Are you planning on buying the Note 3? Or are you just waiting to see it unveiled and on store shelves? Let us know in the comments section.
