Samsung Galaxy Note 3 LockScreen Image Surfaces

Two new images have hit the Internet this week revealing even more information on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

The picture of the lockscreen that will be found on the device surfaced along with an image of the actual device. The two pictures were released by different sources as @evleaks could be credited for the lockscreen and TeckKiddy for the entire device.

TechKiddy received the image from a tipster. It cannot be confirmed to be a real picture of the Galaxy Note 3 at this time.

Other recent Galaxy Note 3 rumors point to the device launching with an LCD display and an 8-megapixel camera in emerging markets.

The device is expected to launch with slightly more expensive components in other markets. This cheaper model will cater to countries that prefer purchasing low-end smartphones. This will give them an opportunity to own a high-end handset at a better price.

This latest spec rumor was reported on by ETNews. The publication also states that this LCD version will account for 30 percent of the initial production run. However, the exact markets that will receive the phone is unclear at this time.

The Galaxy Note 3 release date could be as early as Sept. 27.

The device is expected to launch on that date in Taiwan, according to a report from Taiwanese site ePrice. Pre-orders are slated to begin on Sept. 16.

The device's availability date will not be announced until the Samsung "Unpacked" event which is set to take place on Sept. 4 in Berlin, Germany. This will be the public's first look at the phablet and the company's Galaxy Gear smart watch.

The Taiwan launch could either be the same as the official launch in the U.S., or could be slightly after. Either way, it's safe to assume that most markets will get their hands on the Galaxy Note 3 before the end of next month.
