The Samsung Galaxy Note 3, according to the latest claims by Sammobile, will not have a new design and instead, it will feature a plastic design similar to the company's latest Galaxy S series smartphone, the Galaxy S4.

But the bezel of the new Note's screen will not be thick like the previous Notes line-ups and will be thinner like the current Galaxy S4. This is said to be due to the expected high demand and Samsung will not be able to make the metal body on time.

The South Korean tech major was previously rumoured to use a new design and build quality for the Galaxy Note 3. The move comes in the wake of the newly released HTC One, which features a 4.7in full HD display crafted in zero-gap seamless aluminium body. The full aluminium design of HTC One has reportedly inspired Samsung to change the build quality for its next flagship smartphone.

Besides, Samsung is said to have dropped its plan for an unbreakable OLED display. The Galaxy Note 3 recently confirmed that it would feature a 6in AMOLED non-flexible display.

As for the other technical aspects, the Galaxy Note 3 is rumoured to use an octa-core processor with four Cortex-A15 cores clocked at 1.9GHz and the remaining four Cortex-A7 cores at 1.6GHz. The device will have a high-resolution rear camera of 13 megapixel and a front-facing camera of two megapixel.

The new Note will run on the latest version of Android with the company's own TouchWiz user interface. It will feature a 5.99in full HD AMOLED display.

Update: Galaxy Note 3 to feature 5.7in display and mass production to begin in August
