Samsung Game Pad hints at 6.3in Galaxy Note 3

Samsung Game Pad hints at 6.3in Galaxy Note 3With the Samsung Galaxy S4 now very much a reality, the rumour mill is turning its attention back to the South Korean manufacturer’s other flagship series, the Galaxy Note.

Indeed, it’s none other than Samsung suggesting that the Galaxy Note 3 might have a 6.3in display, by way of an official Galaxy S4 accessory.

Over on the official Samsung Galaxy S4 microsite, a little something called the Game Pad is detailed. It’s compatible with devices with display sizes from 4in to 6.3in.

The upper size limit for the Samsung Game Pad is of particular interest, firstly as it’s so specific, and also because there isn’t a Samsung device with a 6.3in display. Yet.

Furthermore, 6.3in has been touted as the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 display size a handful of times (including here and here).

Are we reading too much into the Samsung Game Pad? It does seem odd to have a specific upper limit of 6.3in unless Sammo has a 6.3in device planned. Or maybe not.

In any case, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, 6.3in or otherwise, is largely expected to launch at IFA 2013 in August. Er, unless Samsung decides to go crazy Broadway style and give the Galaxy Note 3 its own launch event. We can only hope.

Is it just coincidence that it has the same coloured (and lettered) buttons as the Xbox360 controller?

Expect Microsoft are pondering that too. It's sure ugly and looks bulky.

You'd think they could have at least had a game on screen for the picture...

I much prefer the look of this

So do I, not that the picture works here, but the dead link icon still looks better...

Not especially likely to be that ;)

Made it work and that manages to be even uglier
