The leaked image which was uploaded to the Picasa web albums has a resolution of 2322 x 4128 pixels, which is what a 13MP sensor produces in 16:9 mode. This means that Samsung will again equip its flagship smartphone and phablet with identical camera modules - a tradition that has been going since the first Galaxy Note came to life.
The photo's EXIF data shows an f/2.2 aperture and a 31mm lens, which again is the same as the Galaxy S4's setup. Some reports had previously suggested the Note 3 would feature image stabilisation, bringing it inline with current top-shelf offerings from Nokia, but this has yet to be confirmed.
We think a Q3 2013 release could be on the cards - slightly later than its 2012 Galaxy Note August release date, but developing a 6.3-inch OLED display can't be easy work!
Pricing on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is yet to even be rumoured, but we think it will probably be more expensive than the Galaxy Note 2. After all, the screen is much larger.
