Confirmed: Samsung Galaxy Note III to launch on September 4th
It’s official. We’ll finally be able to meet Samsung’s next Galaxy Note on September 4th.
The long-rumoured, often-leaked Samsung Galaxy Note III will make its first official public appearance at another of Samsung’s trademark Unpacked events in just under a month’s time, confirmed by the arrival of press invites from the Korean company today.
Unlike it did with the Galaxy S4, Samsung will host the event in Berlin. Whether we’ll see a repeat of the very odd and surely high budget Broadway-style launch event which welcomed the S4 remains to be seen.
The event invite gives little away, telling us to “note the date”. The usual Samsung Unpacked logo is there, albeit looking rather different. The logo looks to have been roughly scribbled down, which is likely a reference to the Note’s stylus and drawing apps.
So far we’ve garnered plenty of information from the numerous leaks which have all promised a phone with an even bigger screen than the current Galaxy Note II. The latest crop of rumours and reports seem to have settled on a size of 5.7-inches, but the real boon will be the quality upgrade to Full HD, which is a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
Other upgrades suggested include an upgraded rear camera, faster processor, more RAM and a newer version of Android which is likely to be 4.3 Jelly Bean. We’ll find out all for sure – including whether that smart watch rumour is true – in just under a month’s time.
