Samsung Galaxy Note 3 could come in three sizes, leak hints

We could be in for a 5.5-, 5.7 and 6-inch Galaxy Note 3, according to a database that tracks imports and exports.

Samsung's Galaxy Note 3 is a dead cert for IFA at the start of September , we already knew that. We've seen leaked pics and some rumoured specs , too. But here's something new: the phone/tablet could come in three sizes, Technology Blogs Simplified reports.

Zauba -- which hosts India's import and export data -- lists a Samsung device with the model number SM-N900, which is said to be the Galaxy Note 3's codename. According to the database, the handset will come in 5.5-, 5.7- and 6-inch sizes. That's right, Samsung could be about to throw every size under the sun at us. Again.

The devices are listed to be winging their way to India "for R&D purpose". Lots of models are listed with different letters at the end of their codenames -- this just denotes which network they'll work on, according to Samsung Updates.

We'd heard previously that the Note 3 would come in two versions , but that the only difference would be which processor they used. Though we also heard previously that the device would come in a 6-inch version, and then another rumour said a 5.7-incher was on the cards. So maybe they're all right.

The Note 3 is said to use a xenon flash, as opposed to the Note 2 's LED flash. There's also said to be a dedicated camera button to help get you snapping.

Android Jelly Bean is also expected, though there's no word on which version. Google unveiled version 4.3 this week, which debuts on the new Nexus 7 , and brings user profiles to play.

Are you looking forward to the Note 3? Or is Samsung just confusing the average punter, bringing out lots of different-sized tablets? Let me know in the comments, or on our Facebook page.
