Samsung Galaxy Note 3 gets unpacked at IFA

Samsung confirmed today that the Galaxy Note 3 will soon be touching down at carriers around the globe starting in October. Slated to hit all five major U.S. carriers (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and U.S. Cellular), the 5.7-inch Full HD Super AMOLED (1920 x 1080) smartphone is a hardware beast with cutting-edge software.

Specifications include Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, a quad-core 2.3Ghz Snapdragon 800 processor, a whopping 3GB RAM, 32GB/64GB internal storage, 13-megapixel rear camera, and 3200mAh battery. Pretty much improved on every single front, the Galaxy Note 3 also comes with all sorts of new Samsung apps and services.

As a member of the Note family, this guy sees a host of improvements and enhancements in the Air Command feature. What’s more, you’ll also find enhanced multi-tasking and note-taking capabilities in the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

Software enhancements in the Galaxy Note 3:

  • Action Memo allows users to handwrite a note, and automatically execute a function or convert that handwritten information into formatted content. Action Memo can instantly initiate  a call, add to contacts, look up an address on a map, search the web, save a task to a to-do list, and more
  • Scrapbook enables users to organize or track down content and information from various sources including the web, YouTube and Gallery in one place so that users can easily look back at collected content all at once. When consumers save content for future use, Scrapbook also collects source material or URLs allowing them to easily refer back to the original source.
  • The Screen Write feature captures the full screen image of the current page on the device and allows users to write comments or additional information onto the captured image.
  • S Finder allows users to expansively search for content on their device regardless of the type. By putting in keywords or filters such as date, location, and content type, users can search related documents, events, communication threads, and even the Help page – all in one place. In addition, users can also search for hand-written content in their Notes and memo applications, as well as symbols and formulas.
  • Pen Window allows users to use the S Pen not only for drawing sketches or writing notes, but now also for opening a small application window for a true multitasking experience. Simply by drawing a window of any size, anywhere on the screen, users can easily and quickly open another application window such as YouTube, calculator or Browser without pausing current activity on the screen.

Look for your carrier to announce something more concrete in regards to pricing and time frame in the coming days or weeks.

    I REALLY don’t like that lump for the camera housing or that phony seam rim on
    the edges of the back cover. UGLY! UGLY! That housing actually makes
    the whole thing thicker than it should be. The effect is that they make the whole back
    just plain UGLY! And FAKE LEATHER? Com’on guys. How tacky. Probably has
    fake stitching, too.

    Thank goodness it will be covered by a nice case. With real leather and real stitching.

    Now, that so called “Smart” watch is just plain DUMB. At 1/6 the
    price I wouldn’t want it, as I consider that there are others that
    actually look NICE, have more functionally, and actually cost about 1/2
    as much. Not a chance, Samsung, it is as if you actually WANTED that pig
    to fail.

    Where is the Note 12?
