Samsung Galaxy Note 3 certified in Indonesia along with next-gen Google Nexus 7

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 certified in Indonesia along with next-gen Google Nexus 7
Both the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the refresh version of the Google Nexus 7 received certification in Indonesia. While this information doesn't give us any word about what we can expect from the two devices in terms of specs, it does confirm that the two models are indeed on their way. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N900) is rumored to be getting unveiled at a Samsung Unpacked event on September 4th, just prior to the IFA 2013 show in Berlin. The latest speculation has the device wearing a 5.7 inch glass with 1080 x 1920 (FHD) resolution, a quad-core or Exynos Octa-core processor and 3GB of RAM. A 13MP snapper should be found in back. Android 4.2.2 should be installed.

The next-gen model of the Google Nexus 7 will be produced by ASUS, the same manufacturer responsible for the original tablet. The model number of the device is the ASUS K008 (Wi-Fi only) and K009 (LTE model). Expected to be introduced before July comes to an end, the new version of  the Google Nexus 7 will replace the Tegra 3 processor on the original with a qual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor. It will offer a narrower bezel and perhaps a higher resolution on the 7 inch display. Since it was spotted wearing Android 4.3 at the FCC, we should see the slate with the same Android OS build installed when the refresh model launches. There also should be a rear-facing shooter of 5MP with a 1.2MP front facing camera, and a 3950mAh battery inside.

Funny the certification 'note' came from Indonesia...usually i would expect the Americas, UK, Europe or the very own home country, Korea.

For the Indonesian (and prob. the South East Asian countries) this might be news, since it's an indication that the device might be available for sale shortly after the global launch.

If the Nexus 7 refresh ends up with the same resolution I am not going anywhere near it. If the rumor of the 1900 x 1200 red is true though, I am sold.
