Samsung is already used to rumours spreading about every single device it makes, and it cannot be helped if fans, critics, and loyalist keep on looking on every move from the South Korean tech giant.
Samsung holds the throne for selling the most number of smartphones in the world and it is not a surprise if the tech company will soon unveil a new device on the upcoming Mobile World Congress in February 2013.
A rumour about Galaxy Note 3 having 6.3-inches of screen display with eight core processors has been hanging around for quite some time. Many observers are waiting if the Galaxy Note GT-N5100 will appear on the event.
In January, information from SamMobile appears to confirm that the GT-N5100 from Samsung will be unveiled soon. It has two versions, the GT-N5100 3G/Wi-Fi and the GT-N5110 Wi-Fi only.
The model name called GT-N5100 will become the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 and will sport an 8.0-inch of display screen, 1280x800 TFT of display resolution with Super Clear LCD, 5.0 megapixels rear shooting camera, 1.3 megapixels of front camera unit, 2GB of RAM, 16 or 32 internal storage, microSD card expansion slot, A-GPS, and a 4600 mAh battery unit.
The processor is still not certain, which is weird because other details seems easy to release than the CPU itself. It could be a surprise for the audience since ZTE introduced their eight-core processor in the Nubia Z7.
This upcoming speculated Galaxy Note will be the direct competition of the Apple iPad mini, bringing more power and performance in a lesser price.
