The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be unveiled on September 4th. The Korean phone maker sent out invitations to the press titled ‘Note the date,’ for the IFA annual consumer electronics show in Berlin, where the last two versions of the phone been debuted. Keeping the “unpacked” theme from earlier this year where they released the Galaxy S4 device, Samsung is calling the event “Samsung Unpacked 2013 Episode 2.”
The Galaxy Note and the S4 are Samsung’s flagship product lines. The Note debuted two years ago as a concept to bridge the gap between tablets and smartphones. It achieved its goal by creating what is now called the ‘phablet’ market, and by being the first 5+ inch screen phone on the market. This along with the Galaxy S product line, turned Samsung into a genuine competitor to Apple’s iPhone.
There haven’t been many leaks in regards to the new Galaxy Note 3, aside from the date. According to cnet.com, “The Note 3 is expected to have a 5.7-inch 1080p screen and trademark S Pen stylus.” However, the rumors have been all over the place, with some expecting a 6.3 inch screen. The most descriptive information on what to expect of the Note 3 came from geeky-gadgets.com, stating:
“The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will either come with a 5.7 inch or 5.99 inch full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The handset is rumored to use different displays in different regions.
“We will apparently see the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with a Super AMOLED display in some countries and with a Super LCD display in other countries.
“The Galaxy note 3 will feature 3GB of RAM, and a choice of either 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of built in storage. It will come with a new 13 megapixel camera with optical image stabilization and a range of advanced features.”
Whatever the actual specs are, we know that the “next big thing” is coming on September 4th—literally and figuratively.
