Samsung brings out Galaxy Note 3 at IFA


Samsung has today announced the brand new Galaxy Note 3 at its press conference at IFA in Berlin. With a slimmer and lighter design, the device includes a 5.7-inch Full HD display, a faster processor, and a new S Pen. It will include LTE Category 4 support on multiple bands.

Like the Galaxy S4, there will be two variants – one with 3G only, the other with 4G. The 3G variant will get an 1.9Ghz Exynos Octa Core processor, while the LTE version will get a 2.3Ghz quad-core processor (We’re assuming a Qualcomm processor). Other hardware specs include a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, a large 3200mAh battery and 3GB of RAM. It will also include 32GB or 64GB of memory, which is expandable wiht a microSD card slot.

The Galaxy Note 3’s design is more stylish; and while it still appears to have a plastic front, the back emulates a notebook with a leather back and stitching. The accessories are also getting better in terms of aesthetics, with more colours themed to match the three colours of the phone – black, white and pink.

The S Pen is becoming more a controller, with Samsung promising significant improvements to quickly access commands and features – such as Action Memo, to quickly scribble something and it is able to translate it to actions like adding to contacts or calling the number. The Galaxy Note 3 also brings an update to the S Note app, and will include a 12 month premium subscription to Evernote.

Other integrated apps with the Note 3 include “My Magazine”, which was developed with Flipboard to give people news and information in a “dynamic magazine-style” layout; and its Knox security service with an improved “Find My Phone” feature.

The Galaxy Note 3 launches on September 25, with the Galaxy Gear, in over 143 countries. No word on Australian availability information as of yet.
