As we near the official Galaxy Note III announcement we’re likely going to be bombarded with all sorts of stories and rumours, some that will turn out true and some that will undoubtedly prove false once the actual device is unveiled.  In today’s episode of “what the Galaxy Note III might be,” we have some design patents showing off an unknown Samsung device.  Now these patents were apparently filed back in June of 2012 but were issued just today by the United States Patent and Tradmark Office so take that for whatever its worth.

Now onto the device.  As you can see in Figure 3 and Figure 7, this mysterious device clearly shows a slot for the infamous S-Pen found on all Galaxy Note devices.  The overall design is definitely different than previous Samsung devices and actually reminds me quite a bit of the HTC One X.  There are also no physical or capacitive buttons on this mysterious device which is also very different for a Samsung made product.

Again, we have no idea if these patents have anything to do with the actual device but they’re interesting nonetheless.  What do you guys think of this design?  Yay or Nay?
