Note that the crash test was performed on three different positions. Of course, the frontal test was done last so we can do the other two tests. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has almost survived the test. He remained in one piece even if the screen is broken frontal crash.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is equipped with the same design as the Galaxy S4

Samsung remains tight-lipped about his next phablet Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

Recently, new rumors come to surfaces, stating that the South Korean firm ultimately not abandon poly carbonate its next smartphone.

We recently had indeed thought that Samsung finally change the plastic design of these devices next, since the firm was often snubbed about it

We recently had indeed thought that Samsung finally change the plastic design of these devices next, since the firm was often snubbed about it. However, new rumors at SamMobile claim that Samsung does not eventually rework the design of its next Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and that it will be roughly the same design as the Galaxy S4 (as was the case Galaxy Note 2 relative to the Galaxy S3). If Samsung actually opted for a metal shell or aluminum, as is the case with the HTC One, it would be faced with problems of production, especially since he had no trouble selling its Galaxy S3 example.

Thus, once again, what will motivate buyers to buy a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 if already owns the Galaxy Note 2, or any other Smartphone large format? As a reminder, rumors state that the device would have an Octa-core processor with 1.9 GHz clocked A15 and A7 clocked at 1.6 GHz. It possesses an AMOLED 5.99 inch Full HD. Its processor is driven by a 3 GB RAM, and everything would be managed by the latest version of Android and TouchWiz overlay. These features be enough to win the heart of consumers already the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will perhaps not with the familiar flexible screen?

By cons, we must not forget that this information is only rumors, it could be that the truth is otherwise.
