Galaxy Note 3 Production Begins in August, Device to Feature 5.7-inch Display

Production on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will begin in August.

The manufacturing process is set to begin in a matter of weeks, according to the Korean site ETNews. Samsung's upstream suppliers will begin received orders for components for the Note 3 starting in August. This information surfaced in a report touching on the recent drop in component orders from Samsung for the lower than expected demand for the Galaxy S4.

The device will feature a 5.7-inch display, according to a tweet sent out by @Evleaks. "Samsung Galaxy Note 3 tipped as having a 5.7-inch screen," said the site on its Twitter account. Previous rumors have stated that Samsung will go with a 5.99-inch display for this device, however, the company recently launched its Galaxy Mega line that features the Mega 5.8, which is bigger than the Note 2.

Samsung might want to keep the Note at a slightly smaller size in order to keep the Mega line relevant to those looking for a massive smartphone.

The @evleaks Twitter account usually announces genuine information on upcoming devices. This means there is a good chance that the Note 3 will end up with a 5.7-inch display. The Galaxy Note 2 features a 5.5-inch screen.

A new image of what could be the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 surfaced on the Internet last week.

This is not the first picture of the device to show up, however, none of the photos that leaked so far were confirmed by Samsung so they could all end up being fake. This new picture shows a device with a black body and a narrower bezel than its predecessor. The picture does not show the entire handset, as the only visible part of the device is the top right corner.
