Rumor: 6.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Note 3 May Sport 8-Cores

Samsung's rumored 6.3-inch Galaxy Note 3 phablet is said to sport an eight-core processor.

According to the Korea Times, the Galaxy Note 3 will, as previously reported, feature a 6.3-inch display. Comparatively, its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 2 phablet, sports a 5.5-inch screen.

The South Korean technology titan, which recently stressed that phablets (a hybrid between smartphones and tablets) are here to stay, is also rumored to be integrating its next-generation eight-core Exynos 5 Octa processor into the device. During CES 2013, the company announced the world's first eight-core mobile processor.

Amid reports over Apple cutting its business ties with its chief competitor, Samsung is apparently pitching its processing products to smartphone manufacturers in China including Huawei and ZTE.

Should the Galaxy Note 3 prove to be in existence with the aforementioned specs, it would become both the world's most powerful smartphone and a device with the world's largest screen found on a phone. Huawei's Ascend D2 holds the former moniker (read our hands-on impressions here), while the latter title is attributed to the 6.1-inch Ascend Mate -- head on over to our hands-on impressions with the device here.

    Rumour: Samsung Galaxy S6 will have a 64 core ARM firebird processor, 4k UHD display, and a compact laser projector located on the top of the phone. Also, it will cure cancer.
