The next iteration of Mali 450 GPU will feature 8 cores, which will significantly improve the graphics performance of the phablet. Considering that Samsung used PowerVR SGX544 GPU in the Galaxy S4, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be the first ever smartphone to feature Mali 450 GPU.

The next generation Phablet will also have a 13 megapixel camera, an Exynos 5 Octa CPU and 3GB of RAM.

The Note 3 is expected to be shipped in the latest version of Google’s Android i.e. either Android 4.3 Jelly Bean or Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie which ever is unveiled at the Google I/O. In addition to the OS, the smartphone will be topped with Samsung’s TouchWiz software UI.
