The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is rumored to launch at the IFA 2013 in Berlin. Previously, Note and Note 2 were launched at IFA after fall, just before the holidays. Note 3 will be unveiled at the Unpacked Episode 2 event, which Samsung is set to organize at the IFA. A Samsung official has stated this to regional Korean publication, the Korean Times.
Samsung considered three layouts for designing the outer core of its Note 3, a metallic chassis, a plastic layout similar to S4 and an exclusively dissimilar design. Previously, rumors voted for a metallic chassis, which has been abandoned by Samsung recently. The Korean Tech chose its existing plastic framework over aluminum brush. This decision was taken by Samsung on basis of consumers’ approval towards S4’s design, which it does not prefer to change at this point of time.
But Samsung is set to give its plastic core an appearance of aluminum brush that would actually render the feel of a smartphone worth $200 and above. Note 3 will feature a full HD S-AMOLED 5.9 inches display. The device will run on Exynos Octa-core processor and will feature Mail-450 with eight core graphics; four Cortex A15 2.0 GHz chips and another four Cortex A7 1.7 GHz power-saving chips. Moreover, the device will possess 3GB RAM with extendable external memory.
It was rumored that Samsung will market Note 3 as the Samsung Galaxy Mega. But such rumors were abandoned, with Samsung Galaxy Mega announced to be launched in two variants of 5.8 inches and 6.3 inches on May 27 and June 17 respectively. Note 2 performed well at the market abiding by Samsung’s target to ship 10 million units, which has raised customers’ expectations over its successor. Hopefully, Galaxy Note 3 would be able to satisfy the audience’s demands.
