The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Gear smartwatch are both expected to be revealed on September 4 in Berlin, during the Samsung Unpacked event. According to SamMobile, the Galaxy Note 3 phablet will begin shipping in September, while the smartwatch should be on shelves one month later.
Since the same source claims that Samsung decided to drop the 16 GB version, it seems the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will only be available in 32 GB and 64 GB versions. None of the information below is official, but Samsung may make a statement in advance of its September 4 event. These are rumored to be the main features of the Galaxy Note 3:
- Processors: Exynos 5 Octa eight-core and Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processors
- Memory: Between 2 GB and 3 GB of memory and microSD card support (up to 64 GB)
- Display: 5.68-inch Full HD Super AMOLED
- Camera: 13 MP with optical image stabilization
- Bundled accessories: S-Pen stylus
- Operating system: Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
- Battery: removable 3,200 mAh battery
The eight-core processors will only be used for models heading for Asia, but these variants will lack 4G LTE support.
