The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 should be released soon, and we're anxious to see it!
The new Note has a 5.7-inch 1080p Super AMOLED panel, giving you approximately 386 ppi - more than the previous versions. It is narrower, thinner, and taller than previous notes, measuring 151.2 x 79.2 x 8.3mm. So it is smaller than it's predecessors, but definitely still one of the biggest in the smart phone/phablet market.
What are the other specs? Well it looks like there will be two basic models: one featuring a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 chipset and another with a 1.9GHz Exynos Octa-core SoC. Both versions will run Android 4.3 and have a 13MP rear camera with Smart Stabilization, a 2MP front-facing camera, 3GB RAM, the option of 32 or 64GB internal storage, microSDXC support, IR LED, MHL 2.0, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac and a 3,200mAh removable battery, as well as LTE Cat4 support and quadband DC-HSPA+ 42Mbps and quadband GSM / EDGE.
The Note 3 features the S-Pen we loved so much in previous versions, though some reviews have pointed out some difficulty in using the new S-Pen. But other reviews have raved about the Flipboard-like feel to the new Note, mainly the ability to flip between panels from left to right for different categories, including tons of social media support. All the big names like Twitter, Facebook, and even Tumblr are included.
The New Note 3 will be available in October through major carriers like AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular. Several of these carriers have started teasing the Note 3, but Verizon is the only to start accepting pre-orders as early as tomorrow! So if you're a Verizon user and ready for the new Note, check the Verizon website asap.
