Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is undoubtedly one of the most-anticipated smartphones of this year but we don't know an exact release date for the handset. However, a recent report suggests that the phablet will launch on Sept. 4 at the Samsung Unpacked event.
A recent AndroidGeeks reports says "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."
Rumors of the Galaxy Note 3 have been circling for quite some time now and various images and specifications of the impending device have leaked online. Samsung officially revealed the Galaxy Note at IFA Berlin 2011 and next year unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 at an Unpacked event, a couple of days ahead of the IFA Berlin event 2012.
A Korea Times report cites Samsung officials and says "The Suwon, Gyeonggi Province-based outfit is developing the Note3 with a 5.9-inch OLED display. The device will debut at this year's IFA trade fair in Berlin, Germany, officials said."
The Galaxy Note 2 was welcomed highly by both smartphone users and tech gurus alike. Customers will hope that the upcoming Galaxy Note 3 will pack in even better specifications. Recent rumors point towards a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera. Speculations also suggest that the handset will pack a 5.99-inch Super AMOLED flexible display.
However, the Galaxy Note 3 will also see a lot of competition when compared to the Galaxy Note 2. Sony has recently launched the 6.44-inch Xperia Z Ultra with top-end specs and the rumored HTC T6 phablet is also slated to debut soon.
With customers having more options in the phablet segment, we will have to wait and see if Samsung is able to attract more customers to the next-generation Galaxy Note 3.
