Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Release Date & Rumors round-up
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date is getting closer and we already have tons of rumors about Samsung’s next generation phablet. We’ve heard about a new stylus, finger hovering, 6.3-inch displays, flexible displays and many release dates, though we can’t be sure about anything.
In this article I will do my best to gather all the information and I will update it every time we have news about the Galaxy Note 3. What we can guess at the moment is that Samsung will release it by the end of the summer or maybe during fall, close to Apple’s iPhone 5S release date.
Galaxy Note 3 rumored specs
Back in December Riciu Andrei reported some rumors about a 6.3-inch display and I really believe it can be true. By doing some measurements, we decided that Samsung can really fit a 6.3-inch display in the Galaxy Note 3, while keeping the same case size as the Galaxy Note 2. Personally I wish this was true, because I really want a bigger display, provided the smartphone’s size remains the same.
Later on Bogdan Pirvu was writing about Samsung’s new Exynos 5 Octa chip, that might skip the Galaxy S4 and make its appearance along with the Galaxy Note 3. Hopefully Samsung will manage to get it ready for production until the Galaxy Note 3 is ready, because it will definitely be a very powerful processor.
Early February we heard some rumors about stylus and finger hovering, which sounds really cool. Unfortunately we didn’t see any proof, though we can’t call it impossible. Around that time Samsung acquired 5% of Wacom, which makes us think they are really working on something like that. For more information, read the piece written by our buddy Liviu Anca.
Two weeks ago some reports said that both Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S4 will feature Visa payWave NFC Mobile Wallet App. And we’ve seen already that NFC payments are the future, which is actually great. Why carry a credit card with you while can do everything with your phone ?
Then we’ve had some rumors about a 5.9-inch Samsung device and we believe it can be the Galaxy Note 3. Hopefully it will have the 6.3-inch device we’ve been talking about earlier, though 5.9 is still good. Unfortunately we can’t be sure if the 5.9-inch device is real and if it’s really the Galaxy Note 3. It’s possible that Samsung is working on other smartphones along with their flagship devices.

Official Release Date: Still unknown
At the moment we believe that Samsung is preparing for a late August or early September release date for the Galaxy Note 3, but there’s nothing very clear. Once we find out more rumors of information about it, we will update this post and let you know.
