I’ve always wondered why phablet makers don’t use that large space they have available on their devices to actually implement a good camera. The Galaxy Note II had a pretty good camera to be honest, but now the Galaxy Note III is starting to sound amazing, if we take into account rumors about a Xenon flash.


Samsung is expected to announce this device at the beginning of September, during IFA 2013 in Berlin. Today we’re witnessing the leak of a bunch of sketches supposedly showing off the form factor of the device and some design traits. The sketches are supposedly taken from the user manual of the phablet and I have to say that the design doesn’t stray much from Samsung’s recent products.

There’s also a list of specs mentioned here, the typical ones we’ve already heard of, including a 13 megapixel camera, a 5.7 inch Super AMOLED display, but also some surprises, like an Exynos 5 Octa or the Xenon flash. There will also be a Snapdragon 800 2.3 GHz CPU version of the device, if the sketches are correct. If there room on the market for one more device with a Xenon flash aside from Sony Honami and Lumia 1020?
