Samsung to peeved Galaxy S4 parts suppliers: don't worry, Galaxy Note 3 mass production starts in August
posted by Daniel P. / Jun 24, 2013, 1:59 AM
Suppliers who have good inventory management systems only keep two or three days supply of parts, but those with less than stellar management will be stuck with up to ten days worth of parts that might not get into use soon, which will affect profitability, say the insiders.
Samsung has allegedly calmed things down, confirms an insider from its Wireless Business department, saying that soon the Galaxy Note 3 orders will start coming in, as in August, as well as whatever the demand for the S4 Zoom and S4 Mini turns out to be, which will mitigate the impact from the reduction in orders for Samsung's bestselling flagship: “[Samsung] had reduced the order to each suppliers at the similar rates. Since we will start placing orders for follow-up models, such as Galaxy Note III, from August, the impact to suppliers will be minimal.”
There was even a rumor that Samsung could announce the Note 3 earlier than the IFA expo in September, to combat the loss of S4 sales, as well as the initial sales of Sony's Xperia ZU aka Togari phablet, which is expected to be announced tomorrow.

No doubt the Note 3 will be an excellent phone, but this year it looks like its all about the phablets and Samsung is going to get competition on this segment! Good for the end consumer as more options will be available.

True, but I don't think competition overthrowing the Note line just yet, they have a 3-year head start on the phablet front and know what can go right or wrong. They introduced multi-window, new pressure sensitive feedback, airview, a RGB HD AMOLED screen and superb battery life which is still a novelty among phones, and you bet they have plenty of ideas for this year, plus besides the 6" power-friendly AMOLED display, they'll pack a 3600mAh battery minimum.

I don’t know why someone like you think that Note series is the greatest things in the smartphone world, from what i know GS3 beat Note 2 in sales. other manufacturers also can make phablet with great specs and feature, so overthrowing Note 3 is not impossible Task

There are many people who are limited by the size of their hands to how big a phone can be before it becomes uncomfortable to hold. Many women and some men have SMALL hands that may even have problems with the Galaxy S3, let alone trying to hold onto the Note 2. For the rest of us, the Note 2 is a better sized device, and going to a 1080x1920 in a somewhat larger device would be even better. You have some people who insist on using a phone one handed, even when the idea of a "phablet" does away with the idea of using it with only one hand anyway. Still, the best device isn't always the most popular, and sometimes the most popular is far from being great. Now, by modern standards, the Note 2 isn't the best phone around, because this is 2013, and there is a new generation of devices that have been launched by different companies. This is why the Note 3 is desired.

my hands is big enough for Note 2, but for me any devices bigger than 5” will be feel uncomfortable in my pocket. If i need bigger display i’ll go for 7”-10” tablet, i know that is my personal opinion. But with everything you have said i still can’t understand why bone and other samsung fans like to think that Note 3 will beat any devices on the market and no other manufacturers can make great phablet

I know you love samsung so much, but how you can say that Note 3 is the best phablet?? have you compare it with another phablet?? the reason why i compare phablet with pocketable smartphone because there is so many samsung fans said Note 3 will beat everything on the market. From what i know Note 3 is just S4 with bigger display, stylus and more powerful chipset there is nothing special and unique about it, if i miss something about Note 3 please tell me!

I don't get it. What is your beef with samsung? Right now, samsung simply makes the best phablet sized phones period. How do i know? The reviews, market share, popularity, best specs,. Just how many more proofs do you need?

If note 2 was an upgrade to the original note, then I ain't worried cos I know note 3 will definitely improve on the note 2 which is simple awesome. I can easily use my note 2 for an extra yr without feeling left behind. This Fon is just something else.
