Next Galaxy Note Could Come in Three Different Sizes

When Samsung launched the Galaxy S4, the company surprised us with multiple models of the device. The original 'vanilla' model aside, there was the S4 mini, the S4 Active, the S4 Zoom, and a model running stock Android and available via Google's Play Store. Now it looks like the South Korean electronics company is going to take the same approach with the next iteration of Galaxy Note.

According to the latest scuttlebutt, Samsung may have three variations of the Galaxy Note III. Engadget cites Twitter user @techkiddy in reporting that three different models each sporting a different size display panel have been spotted in Zauba, a database that traks India's import and export shipments. Screen sizes listed are 5.5, 5.7 and 6 inches.

For reference, the Galaxy Note II (pictured) features a 5.5-inch display and that's already an increase in size over the first Galaxy Note, which had a 5.3-inch display. Samsung is thought to be unveiling the Galaxy Note III at IFA in Berlin, so stay tuned for more information on this device!

    I thought 4.7" was a pretty ideal size for a usable phone IMHO. But as someone who uses their "phone" less and less, and their "mobile device" more and more, so long as I can carry the device, I'm not as concerned about how practical it is to hold up to my ear to use the phone feature.

    "Screen sizes listed are 5.5, 5.7 and 6 inches."
    If it was 5, 8, 10 inch, I would understand, but this is just outrageous.
    It doesn't even make sense from a marketing point of view with those models being so similar to each other in terms of size......
    From a Consumer point of view, it's just gonna be more niche choices instead of a true great offering

    I think 6" is my limit. If this is more than just TH'ism it'll be interesting to see what other specs differentiate the various versions.
