Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to Feature an Octa-Core CPU and GPU

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will feature both an Octa-core CPU and GPU.

The latest rumors point to the new phablet coming with an 8-core Mali 450 GPU which will work well for graphic-intensive activities such as mobile gaming. The device will also pack Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa processor, making it even more powerful. Other rumored specs include 3GB RAM, a 6-inch full HD display, and a 13-megapixel camera.

The body on the Galaxy Note 3 will feature extremely thin bezels which will basically be non-existent thanks to the enlarged display. The device currently has the potential to outshine Samsung's flagship Galaxy S4 smartphone that launched recently.

A picture of what is believed to be the Galaxy Note 3 leaked onto the internet last month.

The image was leaked by a site known as Mydrives. It also released a brief report on the device's specifications that match up perfectly with this new report.

Samsung is also expected to improved the exterior design on the Galaxy S3.

The company's smartphones, such as the Galaxy S3 and previous Note models, have been criticized in the past for an unimpressive look and feel. Samsung normally uses a plastic frame, while other companies such as Apple and HTC incorporate more durable materials into their devices.

The recent release of the HTC One has reportedly sparked Samsung's interest in redesigning the Note 3's exterior, according to The handset features a stunning design that rivals the Korean giant's current flagship the Galaxy S4, which closely resembles the Galaxy S3. Samsung normally uses plastic for the exterior of its devices in order to keep production costs low. However, the popularity of Samsung's handsets has exploded in the past few years, and a new design is long overdue for the Galaxy lines.
