Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Release Date Will Be September 4th, Confirms Insider

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is definitely one of the most anticipated smartphones of the year as it will come to continue the success of the Galaxy Note family introduced back in 2011 by the South Korean phone maker. As the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date is getting near, the rumors regarding the next-gen Sammy phablet are starting to intensify and, after we’ve heard reports about its technical specifications or design, today it’s time to talk about the launch date of the handset.

A couple of weeks ago, a Korean analyst reported that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date will be in September, so we’ve asked a couple of questions here and there, in search for a confirmation. Well, we were able to get in touch to a person close to the matter, who was capable to provide some details regarding the Galaxy Note 3 release date. Just like everybody was anticipating, he said that the Galaxy Note 3 will indeed be introduced in September, just head of IFA Berlin 2013.

He also said that, sometime in August, the South Korea-based company will announce that a special Samsung Unpacked event will be hosted on September 4th, in Berlin, adding that the Galaxy Note 3 will be officially introduced during the aforementioned press conference. The Samsung Unpacked will be a part of the IFA 2013 expo, being a press-only event, that will debut on the first day the Berlin-based tech fair will open its gates for the media.

There’s no surprise that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be introduced around the debut of IFA Berlin, as both its predecessors received the same treatment. The first Galaxy Note was officially unveiled at IFA Berlin 2011, followed next year by the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, which was made public during an Unpacked event a couple of days ahead of IFA Berlin 2012 debut.

An early September release date for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is ideal for the South Korean phone maker, as the next-gen phablet will hit the market almost synchronized with iPhone 5S’ debut, which will help Samsung steal some of Apple’s customers.

A recent report was indicating that Samsung might use both Super AMOLED and IPS LCD displays for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the type of screen being market dependent, just like happens now with Samsung Galaxy S4’s processor. Talking about processor, it is speculated that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be underpinned by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC with quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 CPU and Adreno 320 GPU. If you’d ask me, I would say that there will be two Galaxy Note 3 variants: one equipped with the Snapdragon 800 and another sporting Samsung’s proprietary octo-core Exynos 5 Octa SoC clocked at 1.8 GHz (200 MHz higher than the one of the Galaxy S4).

As you probably noticed, the high-end Android-powered smartphones that were introduced this year come with full HD displays (see HTC One, LG Optimus G Pro, Sony Xperia Z, and Xperia Z Ultra). Since the Galaxy Note 3 will be in Samsung’s front line of attack, the phablet will definitely come with a full HD display. Anyway, there are a lot of speculations regarding Galaxy Note 3’s screen size, some sources saying that it will be a 5.7-inch or 5.9-inch panel, while other saying that it will go past the 6-inch threshold.

We are expecting the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to borrow the 13 megapixel sensor of the Galaxy S4, and, of course, to boast all the TouchWiz Nature UX-specific Camera app features, plus S Orb, Samsung’s name for the 360 degree panorama mode. The amount of RAM and the internal storage options of the Galaxy Note 3 will also be borrowed from the Galaxy S4 flagship: 2 GB of RAM and 16/32/64 GB of storage, plus microSD card support.

Since Samsung announced the acquisition of 5% in Wacom shares, a company popular for its graphic tablets with stylus input, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 might come with an improved S Pen stylus and a couple of new S Pen-related software features. The phablet will probably come pre-loaded with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, but since the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean rumors are hinting towards July release date, the Galaxy Note 3 might actually leave the factory gates with the latest Android iteration on board.

Please let us know what are you expecting from the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The comments section below is all yours.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Articles

  • Frank

    I really want at least 6 inch screen. Please don’t go freakin below 6 inch

  • Vlad N

    I am very eager to get my hands on the note 3. I wonder how apple will compete with state of the art devices.

    To frank, why is there a need for a 6 in screen? Samsung already has the 6.3 in galaxy mega. It not that I worry it not fitting in my pocket, like many do, but its just funny looking when you call someone with a screen bigger than 6 in. Lol

    • Frank

      because some of us want a large screen…… !! also some people have poor vision think about that you nob!

      • Vlad N

        that is very true, i can’t imagine what its like for people like you to own an iphone… oooo thats just suffer

        • NdalV

          lol, If you don’t understand why, this technology is not for you.

      • Mr.Frank

        Next up we’ll have phones the size of a textbook.

        PS. In case you didn’t know there are contacts to improve vision

  • chris

I have the 64gb s3 with 64gb micro card and I’m out of space…..! But the screen size is too small….!! NOTE 3 = 64GB inside please for the uk and sell direct i dont want it on a stupid contract!

  • sam

    Dual Sim

  • goutham

    guyz note 3 is delaying due to the delay of 4.3 from android think twise always the note series cumes in advanced os the note 2 already have 4.2 than note 3 with same wont be good so sam waiting for 4.3..

    • joe

      What?? None of that makes any sense. There is no delay as there has never been an official release date

  • Ankur

    note 3 will definitey face stiff competition with Xperia Z Ultra. It will be interesting to see who gets the top spot in the phablet world

    • MasterMuffin

      It will lose in style, but led flash and bigger battery with other specs about the same -› N3 wins

  • wargamer1969

    Please Samsung don’t just make the Note 3 a bigger version of the S4, you will disappoint alot of people if you do that, we are expecting alot more out of it than that!

    • bob

      Out of all the rumours, I’m hoping for a curved, flexible screen, 64/128GB versions and fingerprint scanner

      • MasterMuffin

        You’re going to get disappointed! Not going to be curved, not going to have 128GB (with SD card it will but not built-in) and no fingerprint scanner!

  • Hopeful

    Make it competitive with the other Notes and the S’s of the Galaxy’s. Increase the size of the phone, the megapixel size of the camera, front and rear, go up at least to 3GB/32 internal memory, make it where you can not loose the s pen once you take it out, incorporate what you have from the other Note’s and S’s into this phablet. Add something to this phone/tablet that no other tablet or phone has on the market today! Just a thought!

  • Silver T. Rader

    Looking at upgrading to the Galaxy Note 2 now. The will probably be a huge premium (Galaxy Note 3) for many months. Will the II have a price smash in Sept as the Galaxy III and other competitors appear? I can wait (and suffer with my 2 year old android) until Dec and wait for my T-Mobile contract to expire.

  • CeeDee Nairn

    … ! * BOOOOOOOM * ! …

  • StevetotheH

    What I expect from the Note 3. Aluminum case, ir blaster, 64Gig Sprint U.S. version, slightly larger battery, same size as Note 2 but thinner.

  • sam

    6 inch screen. Dual SIM. Dual Memory card. Xeon flash . 4Gb RAM . Stylus with ball pen.

  • skaiks

    samsung,please do not make n3 a bigger s4,and do not make the screen as big as the mega 6.3, i have an iphone 5 and xperia z and also s4, im willing to throw all for the note3 if u keep the same stamdard as you did with note 2.

  • Prem Kumar
