Samsung Galaxy Note III to ship next month with 16GB version dropped?

Samsung Galaxy Note III to ship next month with 16GB version dropped?
A published report on Monday cites a source as saying that the Samsung Galaxy Note III will be shipping out on week 36 (September 2-8) with the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch in transit during week 40 (September 30-October 6). The source added that depending on the region, there could be a one week delay. Both devices are expected to be introduced during a Samsung Unpacked event in Berlin on September 4th. That is just a couple of days before the IFA 2013 show in Berlin opens.

The report also mentions that Samsung has decided to scrap the 16GB model of the Samsung Galaxy Note III. Instead, the 32GB and 64GB models will be available. You might remember that some purchasers of the 16GB Samsung Galaxy S4 complained that they had less than 9GB of storage on the phone after bloatware was taken into account.

We'd advise you to be a bit skeptical about the shipping dates because they are not official. The good news is that it won't be long until September 4th at which time we will know what Samsung has in mind in terms of launching the next iteration of its phablet and its smartwatch. With the Apple iWatch said to be delayed, introducing its watch before Apple unveils the iWatch could give the Korean based OEM an advantage with this next generation of smartwatches that it never had with smartphones or tablets.
