Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is definitely one of the most anticipated smartphones that will debut this year, along with Motorola’s Moto X, LG G2, Apple’s iPhone 5S, and the next-gen Nexus smartphone, unofficially dubbed Nexus 7. After we were the first to tell you that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date was set for September 4th, the Korea Herald comes to confirm our report, saying that the next-gen Sammy phablet will be unveiled in September, at IFA Berlin 2013.
As the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 draws near, the interwebs are flooded with loads of rumors regarding the new phablet, most of them talking about it’s display. After we’ve heard that it will be sized 6.1 inches, others came to report that it will actually be a 5.9-inch display, but latest rumors in the business say that the Galaxy Note 3 will actually have a 5.7-inch display. Not to mention about the rumors regarding the type of display used for the Note 3: we first heard that it will be a flexible display, than that Samsung will ditch the Super AMOLED technology over LCD.
As I was mentioning above, The Korea Herald has confirmed that Samsung will introduce the Galaxy Note 3 a couple of days before the IFA 2013 tech fair will open its gates for the public, revealing that the South Korean phone maker pays special attention to its next-gen phablet, as it will host a separate Unpacked event for its luanch.
Not long ago, the infamous @evleaks account has reported that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will pack a 5.7-inch display, despite the rumors saying that it will come with a 6-inch screen. Anyway, we are advising you to take the rumor with a grain of salt, as @evleaks doesn’t have a straight record of accurate reports about unannounced products. Anyway, the 5.7-inch display size seems the most plausible to me as well, because it fits perfectly into Samsung’s pattern of adding 0.2 inches to each new generation of its phablets.
According to the rumor mill, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is expected to boast a 5.7-inch display with full HD resolution, while being underpinned by a Snapdragon 800 or a Exynos 5 Octa chipset (market dependent), while borrowing the 13 megapxiel camera sensor from the Samsung Galaxy S4. Anyway, it seems that the Galaxy Note 3 will be among the first Android-powered smartphones to boast 3 GB of RAM, but it will also come with support for LTE Advanced, Bluetooth Low Energey and NFC.
Well, all we can do now is sit here and wait to see whether the 4th of September will indeed bring us the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
Personally, I am expecting an improved S Pen stylus, given that the South Koreans acquired 5% in Wacom shares, a company popular for its graphical tablets with stylus input and a design that sticks to the lines introduced in March by the Samsung Galaxy S4. I’m also expecting the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to be thinner than its predecessor, with thinner bezels that will allow Sammy to make its new phablet the same size as the Galaxy Note 2.
