The next-generation of Samsung Galaxy Note will arrive on September 4, reports AndroidGeeks. Citing an inside source, the blog advises that the Galaxy Note 3 will be unveiled at an Unpacked Event just prior to the start of IFA. For what it’s worth, the previous two models were introduced at roughly the same time in their respective years.
What specs to expect?
The latest round of rumors suggest that Samsung will employ either a Super AMOLED and/or IPS LCD displays for the Galaxy Note 3. In all likelihood there will be different display types and/or CPU’s for various markets. Most recently we’ve heard (translate) that Samsung is using a 5.99-inch flexible display for the smartphone. Other sizes rumored in the past include 5.7-inch and some in excess of 6-inches. Either way, we’re expecting the 1920x1080p resolution that has become commonplace for top-tier smartphones.
In terms of processor, the Samsung Galaxy Note may boast either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU (with quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 CPU and Adreno 320 GPU) or Samsung’s own octo-core Exynos 5 Octa CPU clocked at 1.8 GHz.
Additional specifications that we might anticipate for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 include a 13 megapixel camera (like the Galaxy S4), 2GB RAM, storage of 16GB, 32GB, and/or 64GB with microSD expansion, and stylus support.
Likely to feature the latest version of TouchWiz Nature UX, the Galaxy Note 3 should boast all of the familiar camera modes and Samsung-specific apps and services. We might hope for Android 4.3 Jelly Bean now that it’s starting to leak out however a more likely scenario calls for the Android 4.2.2 flavor.
