Samsung Galaxy Note 3 render pops up, alongside first price hints
We've been talking ad nauseam about the upcoming third iteration of Samsung's phablet line under the Galaxy Note branding, and even seen a few rectangular prototype mules leaked here and there. Now a render arrives, based on those leaked frames and front panels, looking so convincing, that it might as well be a presser.

Thin, rectangular shape with minimum bezel seems to be in store for us with the Note 3, the render tries to relay, and the S-Pen stylus is retouched a little bit as well, compared to what we have with the Note II, conveying possible added functionalities. What do you think, do the renders look convincing?

Meanwhile we got the first quote of the alleged Note 3 pricing, courtesy of a Russian electronics retailer, which expects to carry the phablet in the end of September with a price tag of 29 900 rubles, which equates to about 900 USD. Russia is always a very expensive market for these new gadgets, so based on this quote and historical differences between prices in Moscow and other major markets, we'd wager to guess it will land with about 700 USD/EUR starting price elsewhere, which would be in line with last year's Note II introductory.

Interestingly, the publication also says that the price of the Galaxy S4 will be slashed after the Note 3 introduction there, which we hope will translate to other markets as well. As for the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch, the retailer cites a starting price of 14 990 rubles in Russia, which translates to about $450, and availability of the first batches is scheduled for the beginning of October, meaning an IFA 2013 expo launch just two days from now seems imminent.

It's not an official render, Some unknown designer just made a lessened version of Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 with small S Pen :)

It's in line with the leaked front panel, it'll just have more frame and a bit more on the top and bottom, and the same old glossy finish.

Looks like an oversized Galaxy S2 international version that is, I hope the capacitive keys work with the stylus this time and I wish this was spring loaded that would be awesome.

The was a strange omission last time around, but I think the stylus working with the capacitive buttons is a guarantee this time. The Galaxy Note 8 allows it.

Don't buy the Note 3. Buy the Lumia 1520 it is going to be the best phone for 2013 and 2014

Will Samsung ever get rid of the home button? Seems like the note 3 is even a larger of a device.

It's Samsung's signature, why would they get rid of that?

Poo probably prefers accidental taps and Android buttons taking off the 1/8 of the screen.

Well, you're in luck. They sell the HTC One for you. Go away, now.

The problem is that you said "because it's annoying" which doesn't make any sense. How can a physical button be annoying? Physical button is useful you know, you can press it to wake the phone up.

The physical home button on my Note II frequently gets smushed in my bag, which turns on the screen without my knowledge. Sometimes I'll open my bag to find a warm, turned-on phone.

And, there's no way to disable the home button's "screen on" behavior (without rooting and custom software, I suppose). I hope it's customizable on the Note 3.

so the phone is turned on for what 30 secs or 1 min, then wouldnt it turned of after? Unless your gonna claim that once your phone is turned on, it stays on forever now?

do you fill soo much junk in your bag to the point that the home button will always be pressed?

I find your story hard to believe.
