Samsung Galaxy Note 3 listing appears in Kazakhstan

A listing for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has been unearthed on Samsung's website in Kazakhstan. The device apparently bears the label SM-N9000 and appears alongside other just-unveiled or soon-to-be-unveiled Samsung products like the Galaxy S4 Zoom (SM-C1010).

There will be a major Samsung event taking place in Earl's Court on 20 June to which we have been invited and it is likely that the Galaxy Note 3 will make an appearance there. It's worth noting that the Galaxy Note 2 was unveiled last year in Germany at IFA. But given the fact that Samsung shorten the gap between the Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy S4 to less than 10 months, it is likely that it won't wait for the next IFA to launch the Galaxy Note 3.

The device is also set to take over the Galaxy S4 as the leading smartphone in Samsung's portfolio. Rumours suggest that the Galaxy Note 3 will be the first device to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, in place of Samsung's own Exynos SoC. Other features are likely to include a 6in full HD display, a 13-megapixel camera, 2GB of RAM, the S-Pen stylus, Android 4.xx Jelly Bean with TouchWiz
