Ever since the release of Galaxy S4, the whole focus has been shifted to Samsung’s upcoming Note 3 phablet in terms of hyped up speculations. Up till now, we’ve been hearing the possibility of it having a revamped design as opposed to Galaxy S4 adopting its predecessor’s shape, and also the possibility of it incorporating the anticipated flexible displays.

However, today a reliable source of information regarding Samsung products, Sammobile, has burst the bubble by reporting that the upcoming Galaxy Note 3 would have the same design language as that of Galaxy S4 and will not be featuring any special kind of flexible displays we’re hoping to see this year.

There had appeared a report before which had indicated for Samsung facing problems with the production of flexible displays and just few days ago an investment firm concluded that the Galaxy Note 3 won’t be using flexible displays as well, due to the Korean Conglomerate facing problems in mass-production of flexible screens in sufficient quantities for such a device.

Apparently making enough metal cases for the Galaxy Note 3 is not possible either, so it looks like we’ll be seeing at bigger and similar looking Galaxy S4 smartphone. Whereas the specs of the smartphone is concerned, Galaxy Note 3 will allegedly pack a 5.99-inch Full HD AMOLED display, Exynos 5 Octa processor (1.9GHz quad-core Cortex-A15 and 1.6GHz quad-core Cortex-A7), 13-megapixel camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera and “the latest version of Android” with TouchWiz on top.

However, even though today’s report comes from a reliable source, it’s still a rumor so take everything with a grain of salt. Do you expect to see Galaxy Note 3 with revamped design and a flexible display at this year’s IFA?
