The highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 3 launch is obviously getting closer and the company were responsible for originally creating a niche market back in 2011 with the release of the original Note. Then last year they really raised the bar with a new model that has led to more manufactures releasing similar products, but it will be advisable to wait for the Note 3.
We have just seen Sony launch their own phablet smartphone with many other manufacturers set to get in on the act, but there will be many waiting to see what the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will bring to the table.
The handset shouldn’t be too much longer away now as we are almost in July and the device has long been tipped to be unveiled at September’s IFA 2013 event, with a possible Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date coming later the same month or early October.
More recently it has been suggested that the new handset will feature a screen size of 5.7-inches, which comes after previously talk mentioned a 5.9-inch display. The smaller sized screen does make sense though as the last model saw the same slight increase and the same happened with the Galaxy S4 this year.
Despite the increase in size there is a likelihood the Galaxy Note 3 will be easier to hold in the hand thanks to smaller bezels or other space savings, but there is now talk that Samsung is considering using an LCD display on the next Galaxy Note.
There are some that don’t like the Super AMOLED display’s used by the company on its flagship displays and shortages of these are being blamed for this possibility. By the time Samsung has finished developing the Note 3 it will be the third generation of phablet device from the company, so will have fixed any faults that may have been on the previous model.
We will obviously see improvements in the specifications that should also include enhancements to the likes of the much loved S Pen, better battery life, Full HD display, and much more as the company would have the time to perfect the handset.
The new device will likely share many features from the Galaxy S4 in a similar fashion that was seen with last year’s handsets so the Note 3 should have the same front and rear cameras fitted. Samsung is likely to launch the handset on multiple carriers in a variety of markets at almost the same time just as it did for the S4, and hopefully they would have listened to users of the Galaxy S4 and allow owners of the Note 3 to store apps to the microSD card freeing up internal storage space.
The Galaxy Note 2 has long been praised for its excellent battery life especially considering the size of the device, but for the new model powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor this should be at least the same if not better despite the increase in screen size and resolution.
Are you going to wait for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 instead of picking up something else?
