Perennial purveyor of privileged information @evleaks has delivered a nice weekend "present", posting a lock screen wallpaper from the yet-unannounced Galaxy Note 3.

The wallpaper, which weighs 6.9MB, has a resolution of 1920x1920, implying that the Note 3 has a predictable enough 1080x1920 resolution.

It shouldn't be long until we hear more about the Galaxy Note 3 (David and I will be on the ground at IFA 2013) and hopefully see even more goodies from the device, but if you want to grab the wallpaper right now, just hit the link in @evleaks' tweet above.

      Yeah, it's "a bit" banal. Though, I guess the phone is interesting enough for us to waste our time clicking on the "news" anyway.

      Though, it is a rotation and/or scroll friendly wallpaper. Which means they've changed that part to be more like stock Android. I think.

      • ardabey

        A 1920x1920 wallpaper isn't rotation friendly. In landscape, there is no room to move left or right when your screen has 1920 pixels. So it looks like it will be portrait only.

        • Hans Pedersen

          Ah you're right, though the other way around. It's for landscape mode support, so still no wallpaper scrolling without a custom wallpaper.

  • NEXI or NEXUSES

    Does this mean they will be promoting the device as an artist's tool?

    • Hans Pedersen

      If I don't remember it wrong, they've always promoted the Note phones as devices for a bit more creative people.

      • NEXI or NEXUSES

        Probably true, I've just always regarded them more as pure productivity devices. The main reason I've ever considered wanting one is for how nice they seem for jotting down quick notes.

  • Jane Seymour

    wish the screen size was bigger. hopefully the HTC one Max is an option on T-Mobile.

  • Hakim Leveille

    Ewwww, I hope not, the note 1 wallpaper was regal, note 2's was cool, the s3's was natural, the s4's was fun, this one is straight UG-LY

    • jahn

      Its looking good and rotating too with my s3

  • Corey

    I dont care about the alleged wallpaper. Bring on the phone!!!!

    Don't worry about Samsung HATERS those will always exist why because of 42% market share of the entire android platform.

    They just jealous that Samsung dominates every industry. I just sold both my cars and bought a Samsung forklift to drive to work cuz Toyota and Honda got soft.

    They tired of the dominance of Samsung which has existed since 2011.

    Think about this, you have Samsung at 42% market share, LG at 6%, Huawei at 5% and everyone else BELOW 5%. That adds up to like... 67% total or something like that.

    Google would be in shambles right now if it weren't for Samsung. They put their famed Nexus on like 3 carriers globally and they can't outsell Samsung. You know they want the Nexus to be the top dog, handing freebies out at developer conferences and stuff like that. So they made their own operating system that took 10 years to get to this point. So what?

    Android got placed on the map with the HTC Evo in 2010, because Sprint is a bigtime carrier and they have a wide global influence. But after that it's been all Samsung. The Galaxy S2 in 2011 started Samsung dominating Android.

    What else did these other chumps do? Make the first Android phone? Make the first cellphone ever made? The first Droid? Develop wireless radio technologies that are critical to our everyday lives? Bunch of wannabes and has beens, that stuff never made any real importance and doesn't matter anymore.

    Then you take the Galaxy S2, Galaxy S3, Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy S4. Those device rule Android. Samsung IS Android.

    Now you got the Note 3 coming out and it'll probably sell 150 million in the first week. Nothing else matters after September 4th.

    HTC coming out talking all this game about build quality and good speakers, hired Iron Man. Motorola with this touchless control and active notification. Nobody cares about that nonsense, that stuff isn't of any real importance. Galaxy is the real deal, no gimmicks, no nonsense. They know what people want. Eyeball scrolling. I can wave my hand over a phone and scroll 1/4th of the way down a webpage. Can your speakers do that for you?

    I laugh when all these people start talking about all this smooth scrolling, software optimization, hardware acceleration. Consistent design. Lag-free, fast phones. Piss on Stock Android. I've used stock Android before, it's too fast. It's fast to the point that it's a flaw. Touchwiz is just right. I laugh when so many people don't realize that Samsung software engineers know what they doing.

    Bottom line? SAMSUNG. Nothing is gonna be as good as the Note 3, for like, 7 years or something. NOTHING
