Samsung Galaxy Note 3 imposter revealed as Star N9589

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 imposter revealed as Star N9589Sometimes it pays not to jump the proverbial gun (he says, crawling out of bed close to midday).

Initially this looked like one of the most exciting Samsung Galaxy Note 3 leaks to date, but – disappointingly – it’s a hoax, and not a very elaborate one at that.

Essentially the rumour mill was tricked into believing that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note 2 had been pictured side by side.

What we were actually looking at was the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 alongside the – wait for it – Star N9589 (pictured), a 5.7in Chinese Galaxy Note clone.

Presumably that means we can also disregard the accompanying Samsung Galaxy Note 3 specs, which included a 5.99in 1080p display, Exynos 5 Octa processor (four cores clocked at 2GHz, four at 1.2GHz), and a whopping 3GB of RAM.

Ah well, back to the drawing board. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 specs remain very much up in the air, but it’s generally accepted that the display size will be around 6in. Of course, Samsung has already announced the monstrous Galaxy Mega 6.3 this year, which confuses things a little.

In any case, expect to see the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 launch at IFA 2013 in Berlin, which gets underway in September.

I wouldn't be surprised if these are pretty close to the specs of the Note 3. The Note seems gets an overclock, a bigger display, new software and the S-Pen over that year's flagship Galaxy S model. Oh, and more RAM on the N2 vs the S3, but I think that was Samsung being cheap with the S3 since the US version has the same 2GB that the N2 has.
