Report: Samsung Galaxy Note 3 launch pegged for September 4th
The eagerly awaited Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will launch September 4th at a special Samsung Unpacked event, according to a source with inside knowledge of the plans. The event will take place in Berlin just prior to the IFA 2013 show. The first Samsung GALAXY Note was introduced at IFA 2011 while the Samsung GALAXY Note II was unveiled at a Samsung Unpacked event last September, two days before the show opened.

Suddenly, the Korean based manufacturer has a lot riding on this device. Sales of the Samsung Galaxy S4, which had sold 10 million units in the first month, have faded dramatically to the point that analysts are beginning to cut shipping estimates for the model. And that puts added pressure on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to make up for the Galaxy S4's sudden fall from grace.

But it is not going to be a clear run for Sammy's Android powered phablet either. This year, there will be plenty of competition from other large-screened models like the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and the rumored HTC T6, which would be a phablet sized version of the HTC One. As far as what we can expect from the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the latest buzz is that Samsung has decided to go ahead with a flexible 5.99 inch AMOLED screen in an attempt to get sales moving in the right direction. The rest of the rumored specs include a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and a 13MP rear-facing camera.

yeah,

but I prefer performance over design, I find it really stupid how people suddenly cared more about design than performance,
but I would also like to see a new design to be honest,...

Who cares about design... You can't have it both way!
It's not custom made!
I'll take power and performance over design. At least you no your phone is powerful like your laptop

Soon design is going to be the biggest selling point. We are getting to the point where every company-Samsung, Sony, HTC, even LG-all have phones with basically the same specs. Eventually the amount of cores, for example, just isn't going to matter because no one will be able to tell the difference. We are basically already there with quad-core. As a proud owner of the galaxy note 2, I think their design sucks, and could learn something from both Sony and HTC.

I'd take battery life and performance over design. The Note 2 offers good performance and top of the line battery life. I'm hoping Sammy doesn't reverse the performance to battery longevity they have started with the Note 2. Numbers on a piece of paper can't speak for real world performance.

what do you exactly mean by s4 design being a disaster? cramming a 5" screen on the same chassis as S3 ?

I like plastic on larger devices to be honest. It's more durable and its lighter. I really like the glass design on my Xperia Z indeed, but plastic is better and I still really like the design of the GS4 btw.

The only disaster I see here is your spelling. If you are going to speak negatively about a product, at least make sure you've spelled everything correctly.

Congratulations on the wedding mate!

The Note 3 will be without a doubt a beast of a phone, just hoping Samsung somehow changes the design.

Thanx CYSTL. Hope they don't change it too much though, it's a pretty design already, just a little to differentiate it

the note 3 will be a beast alright, but sadly i think the design will still be similar like from the S3 to S4. The all new galaxy design should start in 2014.

Yeah true get rid of that hyperglaze and replace the back cover with the Nokia E71 back cover with Dragon trail or Sapphire glass or stainless steel alloy titanium magnesium please

S800 will still lag. Here's why....
Touchwiz has lots of features and is Ram and CPU hungry
Having live widgets
Facebook
Calendar widget
Email widget
Skype
Tango
Viber
Instagram
Flicker
Twitter
2 email accounts sync
GPRS
WiFi
Ram booster
3 games active
Contact widget
Bookmark widget
All these running will leave you with 300mb of Ram and also lag proper.
So for a smartphone it needs the power of Intel i3 or True Exynos A15 5420 or Tegra4 or the omap5s not Snapdragon S800.
Snapdragon are far behind than Samsung, they don't have a pure A15 SOC CPU.
Wait for the S900

can you even define lag in this sense, a millisecond wait?with all the scam s4 has for instance? well, I don't think that would bother me some.

i also prefer exynos more just for the sake of differentiation not the performance..snapdragon is not bad at all..

Until this day i can’t understand why so many fanboys think that Note 3 will beat anything on the market.

phablet will never beat pocketable smartphone in sales and other manufacturer also will make phablet with great specs even Sony has officialy announced the first device with S800

If Note 3 really have something special that will crush the competition please tell me!

Haha... that thing doesn’t even exist now, and when that thing is finaly out Qualcomm or Intel will have better chipset.
but for now S800 is the best

Its on the Nexus 10. But that's on 28Nm with dual core.
Only silvermont is on par with Exynos A15.
But wait you still have the A57 which has the same power of the Intel i5 on 2.8 GHz. So Intel is a fail with ARM....

44. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)


hahaha.. what a joke
i'm asking anyhing special about note 3 and you answer is Exynos "5420 A15s on 22nm at 2.0 or 2.3" and after i said that those exynos "doesn’t even exist now" you said one of the stupid things i've ever heard (Its on the Nexus 10. But that's on 28Nm with dual core)

You can continue to fantasize about Exynos gimmick, but in reality S800 is the best chipset available today

33. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)


No the s800 is less powerful and way behind A15s.
You should no your a techy. But looks like your a snapdragon fanboy giving credit to.

45. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)


let me tell you why S800 is the best
because it's the only chipset available today with the greatest combination of power, battery life, gpu and connectivity

Sorry but no matter how much money that samsung have, they still unable to make flexible smartphone, right now the only benefit is durability that will help samsung bad design construction

Im going to save my enthusiasm for the release. The S4 wasnt what I expected and as for the Note 3................Samsung cant say that they're going to dominate the "phablet" market when Sony and HTC are going to take a crack at it. These last 2 years have been so crazy that people have bought more phones outright than waiting on their upgrade!!

Hope the Note 3 really does bring it's A-Game, a flexible 6 inch display sounds promising and I hope to God Evan Blass, aka EVLeaks is wrong about the 5.7 inch screen, way too small for a phablet. One thing i resent with my Note 1 with 4.1.2 is the choppiness between opening/closing applications and constantly crashing browsers that freeze too and slow the ui down, if anything project butter has turned it into project slug. Hope Key Lime Pie eradicates all of this choppy performance with the 512 MB of RAM (I'd still want 4GB of RAM on board) with 20nm 64 bit capable processors with ARM 57 on board with the new Mali T678, I want performance exactly like a Macbook Pro with an Intel i7 but i'm dreaming! It's looking like the Note 4 as opposed to the Note 3 but i'll wait around.
