    This story is just a rumor for now, as are most leaks, but if true it could prove very interesting. Supposedly some schematics were leaked for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Within the schematics, a host of features have emerged and some of them are previously unknown. First, it appears that the GNote3 will come in two flavors... one with a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa-Core and the other with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800. This actually meshes up with previous rumors on the device.

    The second bit of intel suggests the new 13MP camera in the GNote3 will include both a Xenon Flash and a dedicated camera button. Both of these are rare features which we have not seen very often (or in a while). Share your thoughts on this.

    I liked the idea of a dedicated camera button, but the feature can be built into the camera app and allow the volume button to be the camera button so a dedicated button is not needed. An extra programmable button would possibly be nice.

    My DroidX had a dedicated camera button and I loved it. The xenon flash...seriously, yesterday I said one of the things holding back cameras on phones was lack of a proper flash. Seems I was right on par if this turns out to be correct.

    So sad that I'm not going to get the Note 3. Everything is shaping up nicely except for the one thing I am determined to have in all of my future phones and tablets; front facing speakers. And yes, it is that important to me. I listen to a ton of media including situations where I need the volume just loud enough for only me to hear and where it's improper/inconvenient to use earplugs.

    I really really hope they go to a front speaker.... Or even on the bottom like the iPhone would be better.... Although the placement on the note 2 is far better then the s3.much easier to "cup" the sound while using the phone...

    Looking good so far. Looks like its going to be like an S4 update. But this time the screen update will be alot more noticeable on the bigger screen. I am hopeful of the snap 800's quick charge 2.

    Samsung always keeps its best for the 'S' series, the note series gets only the better of the best.
