You may remember only a few weeks ago when we saw a schematics sketch allegedly from the Samsung Galaxy Note 3’s manual. In that same post, we also got a brief look at the device being worked on inside a testing facility. Now we get to see what’s inside the darn thing thanks to the Chinese microblogging site Weibo, where one user was able to snap a picture of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (traveling down a toilet?), exposing the device’s innards for the world to see.

Galaxy Note 3 leak innards

Really, there’s not too much revealed in these photos. You may have noticed a very squarish looking body, with distinct sharp corners. While this may appear different from previous leaks (and loads different from previous Notes), upon closer inspection you’ll notice it appears to be some sort of casing, similar to early Samsung Galaxy S3 leaks used to disguise the device from would-be leakers.

As we wait for the Note 3 to be unveiled at this year’s IFA in September (nothing’s been confirmed), we really don’t expect too many surprises from the device. Samsung left enough breathing room in last year’s model that current rumors make perfect sense: 5.7-inch 1080p display, 13MP camera, 2GB of RAM, and coming in a variety of SoC models depending on region, one of which coming equipped with a Snapdragon 800 processor. Of course, Samsung’s legendary S Pen will also make an appearance (you can even spot the stylus slot in the above leak).

Every now and then, I see someone walking around with the Note 2 and wonder if I made a mistake in giving it up. I think the Note 3 is going to be even harder to pass up. We’ll let you know when we hear more.

Thanks, Stan!
