    Most guesstimates center on a September announcement. Perhaps this is the reason for that timing:

    The US GS4 is expected to run the 600. Could the GN3 sport the 2.3mhz quad-core snapdragon 800 — "available in commercial devices by mid-2013" — under its hood?

    I thought it might have the Exynos Octacore instead of the Snapdragon 800?

    The Extreme Tech S4 review states:

    "There is also the possibility that we’ll see two Galaxy S4 SKUs — a Snapdragon model with integrated LTE for the US market, and an Exynos-powered model for the rest of the world."

    Perhaps the GNote III will do likewise.

    I'd be okay with that

    There were also articles leading up to the official announcement of the S4 that Samsung were having major issues with power consumption in the Exynos chip. Therefore it would make sense that Samsung would use the Snapdragon in LTE areas and the Exynos in non-LTE areas.

    I thought the Octacore and was being saved for all variants of the N3. September is a way off, so it could be fixed. Which is more desirable the 800 or Octacore?

    I really like the looks of that 800 SoC. The newest Tegra has a tad more raw speed but the Snapdragon is balanced power-wise and chock full of advanced features: 150mb/s cat 4 LTE-A; ultra-HD; 1080p @60fps … the list goes on. The 8 core thing sounds to me a bit like another Samsung gimmick. Dual quads are for hot rods Occam would slash it to ribbons.

    Is either much improved over what we have in the N2? I also wonder about an upgrade to 5.9" from 5.5".
    6.3" would be more incentive.
