Google I/O 2013 kicked off yesterday and now there's some new information about Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 3.  Rumors floating around about the Galaxy Note 3 design have been surfacing for the past several months.

It was previously suggested that Samsung intended on switching to a metal casing for its Galaxy Note 3 release. A flexible display was also rumored to be in the works at one point.

As SamMobile reported, Samsung opted not to do any major design changes for the Galaxy Note 3 phablet's casing. Instead, Samsung is using the same polycarbonate material for the design as used on the recent Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S4 releases. Due to the anticipated high demand of the Galaxy Note 3, Samsung doesn't have the required amount of time to develop the device in metal.

This is not the first time that Samsung was expected to go with a metal casing instead of plastic. The Galaxy S4 was also rumored to feature an aluminum casing before it was released. When it finally hit the market, the casing was plastic and only looked like brushed aluminum.

The bezel of the screen on the Galaxy Note 3 is said to be slightly thinner than that of the Galaxy Note and the Galaxy Note 2. Although the design will be based on the Galaxy S4, the Note 3 will still feature the 5.99 full HD AMOLED display.

As for the processor, the Galaxy Note 3 is rumored to feature a quad-core Exynos 5 octa-processor. More than likely, it's the exact same processor that's featured in select international variants of the Galaxy S4.

Hopefully, when the Galaxy Note 3 is finally released in the U.S., it will actually include the rumored eight-core processor. Many potential buyers in the U.S. may be disappointed to find out that only the overseas market would get the eight-core version. Current Galaxy Note 2 users would need some sort of incentive to make them want to upgrade to the Galaxy Note 3.
