The next big tech piece coming our way in a post Moto X and LG G2 world is of course the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date. As things stand right now, the big screen smartphone from Sammy is all set to see the light of day on September 4. Of course Samsung is not claiming they are going to launch the Note 2 successor on the specified date though the invites are already out. And they carry enough hints of what to expect on that day, which incidentally is just 2 days prior to the IFA event getting underway.
Galaxy Note 3 Features, Specs
Meanwhile, there has been no dearth of rumors and speculations of what the device will carry in its latest avatar. As a quick re-cap, a 5.68 inch full HD display will be there for the taking, one that will have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The device will have the same external dimensions as Note 2 in spite of offering a slightly larger display. Also, as is common practice by Samsung, there will be two versions of the device that differ from the choice of processor each packs in. While a variant powered by the 1.8GHz Octa-core Exynos 5420 processor is almost a certainty, the choice of CPU with the other variant continues to be shrouded in mystery.
Other tech bits likely associated with the Note 3 include a 13 MP camera that benefits from optical image optimization to allow for better quality images. Coming to the OS, there are every chances of the Note 3 to eventually emerge as the launching device for Android Jelly Bean version 4.3. The Note 3 is believed to come with a 3200mAh battery to allow for comfortable run times. And lastly, not to forget the S Pen stylus too is part of the package.
Galaxy Note 3 Release Date in the Market
As for its actual market debut, prospective buyers can take solace from the fact that Samsung has been trying its best to bridge the gap between the launching date and actual release date of its devices in the last few years. The Galaxy Note 2 was released soon after its announcement at IFA and a similar sort of thing is also expected with the Note 3 as well. However, such a thing may not be applicable to the Verizon supported Note 3 going by the reputation of the biggest 4G LTE service provider that usually lag by a few months with the actual release of a device.
Samsung is also expected to release a lot of accessories with the device, though customers shouldn’t be expecting to get it all on the day it releases. Just like Google, Samsung too takes quite a lot of time to release the accessories, which can be even one month after the device is released. The actual price of the device is unknown as of now, but for those looking for current deals can look up at Amazon and Wirefly for discounts on the release day itself.
However, what makes the Galaxy Note 3 crucial for Samsung is the fact that the big screen smartphone could well be the last major device that the South Korean manufacturer could have for the smartphone segment. With the S4 already having almost slipped off track, the success of Note 3 has assumed additional importance for its maker to cling on to the leadership position it has come to occupy. The S5 is not expected anytime before spring 2014.
