U.K. carrier Three to launch Samsung Galaxy Note III on Sep 16, Sony Xperia Z1 on September 24th30
The latest rumors have the device sporting a 5.7 inch display with resolution of 1080 x 1920 which works out to a pixel density of 386ppi. The first 4 million units are expected to be powered by a quad-core Qualcom Snapdragon 800 CPU while 20% to 30% of the production afterward will be powered by the Exynos 5420 octa-core CPU. 3GB of RAM is inside while a 13MP camera is on board. There is some talk about 4K video recording, but that just might have to wait until next year.
Besides the inclusion of the Samsung Galaxy Note III on the carrier's inventory sheet, you might have noticed the Sony Xperia Z1. Another highly anticipated model, the camera-centric handset is supposed to be the first of a new line of phones called "One Sony". According to the leaked inventory document, the Sony Xperia Z1 will launch via Three U.K. on September 24th. Like the Samsung Galaxy Note III, the Xperia Z1 is also expected to be unveiled on September 4th during a pre-IFA event in Berlin.
The highlight of this phone is the 20.7MP rear camera using Sony G Lens, f/2.0 aperture for low-light photography, and Sony's BIONZ imaging processor, used on the company's point and shoot cameras. A 5 inch Triluminos display keeps things looking bright and vivid. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 is powering the phone which should come in black, white and purple.
So there it is. Three U.K. will apparently launch the Samsung Galaxy Note III on September 16th and the Sony Xperia Z1 on September 24th. And even if you're not a Three customer, you might want to plan on your own mobile operator receiving either model around the same time period. Plan accordingly!
