HTC is looking to take a share of the high-end smartphone market with the release of the HTC One and according to a Samsung source, Samsung is taking notice. They are worried the build quality of their Galaxy S 4 won’t match the build quality of the HTC One. The concern is the aluminum body of the HTC One. Samsung went as far as creating an all-aluminum version of the Galaxy S 4 which was popular internally, but decided against production due to concerns about possible delays.
This concern for build quality may prove beneficial as Samsung could option to address this concern in their future devices such as the Galaxy Note 3. While Samsung hasn’t come out and stated anything official, the source indicates that the Galaxy Note 3 “will not use the design guidelines of the Galaxy S4.” The rumored specs for the Note 3 are close to what we’ve heard before, sporting a full HD 1,920×1,080-pixel AMOLED display, Exynos 5 Octa CPU with LTE and a 13 megapixel rear camera. Again, these are not final specs, but even so, the Galaxy Note 3 looks like it will be another solid device from Samsung.
