Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy Note III phablet will seemingly be the company’s first flagship smartphone to debut with the latest version of Android. Google took the wraps off of a new Android Jelly Bean build late last month. While the software isn’t a major update like Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie will be, it still brings a number of nice new functions to Google’s mobile platform and Samsung is apparently looking to support them as quickly as possible. According to a series of DLNA certifications found recently on the Digital Living Network Alliance website, the Galaxy Note III — listed by its model number SM-N900 — indeed carries Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, in line with earlier reports. Other rumored specs include a 5.7-inch display, a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor or an eight-core Exynos 5 Octa chipset depending on region, 3GB of RAM and a massive battery. The Note III will be unveiled during a press conference on September 4th.
