Samsung Galaxy Note 3 render pops up, alongside first price hints

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.

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?

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.
