Pictures of what is said to be a prototype model of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 surfaced on the internet this week.

The images were leaked by SamMobile and Techtastic, who claim that this cannot be the Galaxy Mega due to its high-resolution display.

The next-generation version of the smartphone tablet hybrid will be launched by Samsung sometime in July or August, according to a recent report from DigiTimes.

The publication also stated that Apple plans to launch two iPhone models in the third quarter of 2013 that include a revised version of the iPhone 5 and a low-cost iPhone model. The cheaper model will be comparable to the iPhone 4S with a lower specification display and processor.

The Galaxy Note 3 is expected feature some impressive specs, including a 5.99-inch Super AMOLED display, 13-megapixel camera, an octa-core processor, new S Pen functions, and Android 4.2.2 or 4.3.

It will also come with a new Optical Image Stabilization feature that will help improve pictures and videos that are taken with the phone's main camera, according to a report from etNews.

It comes with cameras now available on the market. The technology reduces blurs found in an image when the photographer moves too much during a shot. It does the same with videos.

A device believed to be the Galaxy Note 3 was also recently spotted on an AnTuTu Benchmark chart and based on the model number, which is GT-N7200. It is believed to be the sequel to the Galaxy Note 2, which has the model number GT-N7100.

The device actually scored lower than the Galaxy S4 in this Benchmark. The Galaxy Note line normally features overclocked chipsets in comparison to the Galaxy S line. The finished Galaxy Note 3 should be clocked about 1.6GHz in terms of processing power.
