A new report indicates Samsung could begin mass production on its forthcoming Galaxy Note III smartphone as early as August, with sales of the company’s current flagship, the Galaxy S IV, gradually slowing.
According to ETNews, the Galaxy Note III phablet will hit production in August, ahead of its expected fall launch. The site quoted an unnamed Samsung executive, who said the company will begin placing orders for follow-up devices to the Galaxy S IV in August.
Previous reports have suggested that the Galaxy Note III will have a 6-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display and run on a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor. It’s also expected to have a 13-megapixel camera, improved S Pen support and will run Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
Images of the Galaxy Note III leaked earlier this week, suggesting it will look similar to the Galaxy S IV. Samsung, however, has yet to make any official announcements regarding the phablet.
