South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung is expected to launch a third smartphone in the popular Galaxy Note series in late 2013, and some new info on what the device might sport has emerged.

According to a recent article on SamMobile, chances are that the device would feature an LCD screen when released, and that Samsung is working with Sharp on this. While the upcoming Galaxy S IV smartphone was rumored to arrive on shelves with a PHOLED screen, which would make it more battery-efficient than previous handsets in the Galaxy S lineup, the vendor will change its focus to LCD screens with the upcoming Galaxy Note III.
