We’re less than 48 hours away from the big unveiling of the Galaxy Note 3 during the Unpacked event that Samsung has readied for midweek, but rumors and leaks keep trickling in. The latest such release of details involves the certification of the device in a global LTE version.


The Galaxy Note 3 appeared in the Global Certification Forum under the model name SM-N9005. The very same version was listed last month as a global version of the Note 3 that supports LTE connectivity and has 3 GB of RAM. The GCF certification shows that the handset offers LTE operation in the 2100, 1800, 850, 1600 and 800 MHz bands, as well as WCDMA and GSM.

The first 4 million units of the device are believed to be getting the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU, while 20% to 30% of the following models will move up to the Samsung Exynos 5420 octa core processor. There’s also a confirmation of the LTE-A version of the device, out of a press conference held by KT Corporation, formerly known as Korea Telecom.
