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.
