With the Samsung Galaxy S4 out of the way, the rumor mill is now focusing on the next big thing in the mobile scene - the successor of the 5.5-inch Galaxy Note II.

According to a report from Korea Times, Samsung will be launching a 5.9-inch Galaxy Note III in the U.S. The Korea Times claims that Samsung executives will be demonstrating a 5.9-inch Galaxy Note III to AT&T later this week in Seoul to discuss the launch and promotion of the device.

Quoting information from a "Samsung's main parts supplier", the Korea Times wrote in its report that the Galaxy Note II will come with a Full-HD OLED display, Exynos 5 Octa processor and 4G LTE support.

The Galaxy Note II was previously rumored to come with a 6.3-inch display. Apparently, the 6.3-inch device is a different product aimed at the budget conscious market segment.

Korea Times - "A 6.3-inch phablet is also in the works with the company expected to introduce the model in the first half of this year. The 6.3-inch phablet will be a budget model not a flagship one in line with its strategy to expand product lineups".

If the report turns out to be accurate, Samsung will not be launching the Galaxy Note III at IFA 2013 and may hold a separate Unpacked event as it did for the Galaxy S4. Will Samsung hold the Unpacked 2013 Episode 2 event for the launch of the Galaxy Note III? Well, only time will tell.
