Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has not been announced yet but consumers now have some clue on the features of the popular Samsung phablet.
Some of the technologies announced at the recent Consumers Electronic Show and Mobile World Congress give hints on what is included in the specs and features of the much awaited smartphone-tablet hybrid device of Samsung.
On the other hand, iDigitalTimes reported that the Galaxy Note 3 release date is pegged for Samsung's Q2 (summer 2013) just in time to compete with Apple's next iPhone launch.
Industry analysts predict that Samsung will unveil the highly anticipated Galaxy S4 in April 2013 before announcing the Galaxy Note 3 release date for either late Q2 or early Q3; in layman's terms that probably June or July, which just happens to be around the same time we expect Apple to launch their next iteration of the iPhone.
"The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date might be scheduled for late Q2 2013 or early Q3 2013, in an attempt to bite a large chunk of iPhone 5S' market share pie," Android Geeks stated.
The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is also rumoured to have a massive 6.3 inch flexible screen display and Samsug's newest eight core processor. Samsung is also speculated to put a generous 70% increase in battery life, and at this time wireless carrier availability and pricing has not been revealed.
Below are the top five features confirmed by the South Korea company at the previous tech events.
1. Eight Core Processor - Samsung boasts the powerful eight core processor at the CES event last month. Samsung noted that the chip is now ready for use in upcoming smartphones and tablets.
