New patent filing hints at Galaxy Note 3 design

Galaxy Note 3

The Galaxy Note 3 launch is right around the corner, and we’re beginning to get a brief idea of what the device could feature in terms of hardware. But now a new patent filing might have revealed the physical attributes of the device as well. Samsung has filed a design patent over at USPTO for a device which could well be the Galaxy Note 3. The claims hold weight since one of the images clearly shows a slot for the S-Pen stylus, which is only seen on Note devices. The design seems to be a tad different from the current crop of Samsung flagships, which could mean that Samsung is looking to change things up a bit for the newest iteration of the Galaxy Note.

The company has faced severe criticism for not innovating with the design of its smartphones, and the Note 3 might be a perfect opportunity for Samsung to redeem itself. On the specs front, the Note 3 promises to be a beast with a 5.68 inch 1080p Super AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 800 chip, a 13MP OIS camera, Android 4.3 and a 3,450 mAh battery. We can also expect to see a bundle of new improvements to the S-Pen along with a bunch of new TouchWiz apps.
