Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Release Date Confirmed for September 4, Launching Along with Samsung Gear Smartwatch

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date

More than a month ago, we’ve exclusively told you that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date will be on September 4 after we got in touch with a person close to the matter. Today, new reports from South Korea come to confirm that the next-gen phablet developed by Samsung will indeed be announced on September 4. The same source claims that in the same time with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 the South Korean company will also introduce its first smartwatch, the unofficially dubbed Samsung Gear.

It’s not the first time we hear that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date will be on September 4, as the same date was also mentioned in a Korea Herald report. It looks like the Galaxy Note 3 will be officially introduced during a special Samsung Unpacked event on the first day the IFA 2013 Berlin tech fair will open its gates for the media.

Even though there are no extra details about the Gear smartwatch, the aforementioned source suggests that the Galaxy Note 3 will come with a 5-inch display, 3 GB of RAM, and the new Exynos 5 Octa chipset (probably the new Exynos 5420 model).

Well, if you are eager to hear what the rumor mill has to say about the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 specs, then “stay a while and listen.” Rumor has it that the next-gen Sammy phablet will sport a 5.7-inch display based on a Super AMOLED panel and since the Galaxy Note 3 is a smartphone circa 2013 we will definitely see it boasting full HD screen resolution.

There are a lot of source saying that the Galaxy Note 3 will come with 3 GB of RAM which will make it one of the first (if not the first unless LG G2 will also have 3 GB of RAM) smartphones in the world to pack this amount of RAM.

Anyway, there are various reports surrounding the processing unit of the Galaxy Note 2 follow-up. Some say that the phablet will come with Samsung’s proprietary Exynos 5 Octa chipset with a quad-core Cortex A15 – quad-core Cortex A7 combo, while other say that the device will be underpinned by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 SoC.

Samsung recently announced a new Exynos 5 Octa model, codenamed 5420, which is more like an upgraded version of the 5410. The new processing solution boasts four Cortex A15 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz (1.6 GHz on the 5410) and four Cortex A7 cores clocked at 1.3 GHz (1.2 GHz on the 5410) and ditches the PowerVR SGX 544MP3 GPU over a eight-core Mali-T628 MP6 GPU. My guess is that, just like it happened with the Galaxy S4, there will be two Galaxy Note 3 variants which will debut with different processors (market dependent).

The camera unit will most likely be borrowed from the Samsung Galaxy S4, therefore we will get a 13 megapixel sensor mounted on the back of the Galaxy Note 3, with full HD video recording support, autofocus, LED flash, Dual Shot, Simultaneous HD video and image recording, geo-tagging, touch focus, face and smile detection, image stabilization, and HDR.

All the sources point that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will come pre-loaded with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and, of course, we will also get Sammy’s TouchWiz Nature UX interface on top of it. Also expect some Galaxy Note 3 exclusive features and an improved S Pen stylus, since the South Korean phone maker has bought 5% in Wacom shares, a Japanese company popular for its graphic tablets with stylus input.

    I too love Samsung but I do not like 5.7inches of Note 3…Ideally nearing 6 inches would be acceptable .I just hope that Samsung introduces varying sizes of Note 3 and keeps most customers happy.I want a large internal memory …32gb at least and it would be so good if Samsung would have an extra slot or even two for micro sd cards…with 64gb capacity per card….Once you start that trend then do the same for all your upcoming tablets please….and also consider having smaller, twin removable rechargeable batteries in the tablets …one battery powering the device at a time and that way you could remove the depleted battery and charge it in an external charger..then replace it back into the device….Samsung tablet sales will multiply all over the world.Looking forward to the NOTES 3 AND 12.2.

      You have no idea what you’re talking about. That dual battery idea is pointless.. just swap it out dummy. How much memory do you need? How much porn can you watch?

    Thr specs of the Note 3 sound about par for the course referencing affordable parts while retaining excellent quality in a user experience. Samsung is being careful to negotiate pricing of parts to give us better features without charging more money so we must be understanding of that. Also replying to the user asking for larger internal memory space, this is a bad and costly idea. Increasing the onboard storage will certainly add am additional cost for production and remember, we still like sleek slim designs so when we ask for too much, either one or two things will happen. The cost goes up for smaller physical size larger capacity storage chips or larger phones due to larger physical chips. Its much smarter to allow the user to determine their storage size with externally inserted sd cards than making everyone pay for storage that they may not need. The Note series uses CMOS sensors similar to pro DSLRs so theres no need to improve on the hardware, just improve user controls with software. Examples being fully manually controlled camera functions. Also introduce external lenses for these phones to improve the dreaded zoom quality of smartphones. These are some of the areas needed for improvement that i hear from users and see myself. Dominic Goodspeed
