The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date is still a mystery, but sources say that the new phablet of the South Korea-based company will debut in September. The Galaxy Note was the first successful phablet to see the light of day, and here we are, two years later, talking about the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date.
There are three smartphones that annually generate more rumors than any other gadgets of the tech business: the new iPhone, new Galaxy S flagships, and the next-gen Samsung Galaxy Note phablets. Today we’ll talk about the later one.
Just like it happened with the previous generation the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has all the likes to make the jump to an even bigger display, with reports suggesting that the new member of the Note tribe will sport a 5.9-inch screen. The new display will be 0.4 inches bigger (diagonally) than the one that was fitted on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 N7100. The information comes from one of the part suppliers that are collaborating with Samsung for the development of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
No matter if the 5.9-inch display is confirmed or not, there will be one particular change that will definitely make it on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3: the display resolution. As you probably know, the current generation Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels on a 5.5-inch display. Since in 2013 the 1,920 x 1,080 pixels has almost became the standard for the high-end Android smartphones, we are expecting the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to sport a full HD panel.
Regarding the technology that will underpin the display of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, which is almost as important as the size and the resolution, the South Koreans from Samsung will probably use a Super AMOLED panel.
Let’s stay a while
and listen and talk about the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date. Because in the last two years the Samsung Galaxy Note phablets debuted around the IFA Berlin tech fair, we are expecting the South Korea-based phone maker to schedule the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date for the same event.
Of course, Samsung will probably want to launch the Galaxy Note 3 during a dedicated event (just like it happened with the Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2, and Galaxy S4), which will most likely be set in the week prior to IFA Berlin 2013. Since the Berlin-based tech fair will open its gates for the public on September 6th, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date might be set in the September 1-5 time frame.
The rumor mill also talks about the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 technical specifications. It seems that, besides the 5-inch full HD Super AMOLED display, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will also sport Samsung’s proprietary Exynos 5 Octa chipset, clocked 200 MHz higher than the one fitted inside the Samsung Galaxy S4. Therefore the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 might sport an octo-core processor based on four Cortex A7 cores clocked at 1.2 GHz (for improved battery life) and four Cortex A15 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz (for the tasks that require more processing power).
The rest of Samsung Galaxy Note 3 technical specifications will probably include a 13 megapixel camera and all the connectivity features worthy of a modern smartphone like all standards of WiFi, 4G LTE, Bluetooth, NFC, infrared port, and microUSB.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will probably run Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box (unless Google changes its mind and launches Android 4.3 Jelly Bean this summer), of course with Samsung’s Nature UX on top of it.
