After weeks of speculation revealed almost every imaginable detail about the Galaxy Note 3 to the public, Samsung has finally launched the latest iteration of its premium Galaxy Note phablet line in the IFA 2013. It has been redesigned to a considerably large extent as compared to the Note 2. Read on below the break to know more about the newest Samsung smartphone.
The Galaxy Note 3 has some pretty impressive specs, for starters. It will have 3GB of RAM, a 2.3GHz quad core processor on its LTE model and a 1.9GHz octa core processor for a 3G version. It has a 13 MP rear camera that can shoot 4K video, according to Samsung. The screen is up to 5.7 inches now, as opposed to 5.5” earlier, and it weighs just 168g and is 8.3mm thick, which means that despite its screen size, it has little heft.
The Note 3’s design is somewhat unique for a Samsung product. While the front with the screen has little scope for changes, the plasticky back has received some fake leather touches instead, and the sides have had a fake metal finish as well.
The Note 3 will be launching on the 25th of September across most of the world, though Samsung is yet to reveal any pricing for its newest premium phablet. The whole look and feel of the device is being praised by the media across the line, even though the combination of faux leather & metal sounds tacky to a fault. It will be coming to the US on all major carriers as well, and there doesn’t seem to be any reason to expect the Note 3 to be anything but the monster hit that both of its predecessors have been.
