Samsung is all set to introduce its next Galaxy Note iteration in October, a month that has traditionally been associated with the launch of the first two versions of the Galaxy Note device so far. The launch date will also be applicable to the United States as well with initial reports concluding the Galaxy Note 3 will debut on all the four major carriers in the United States, including Verizon. Samsung had recently announced it will reveal the Galaxy Note 3 at the IFA event to be held in Germany in September. However, the company has lined up a separate event to come up with the specifics which include the exact launch date, price and its features.
Among the key features that will make the Galaxy Note 3 stand out will be its vastly improved photographic capabilities. Reports already mention the Note 3 will come with a 13 megapixel camera at the rear which, together with the bigger screen real estate will be a photographer’s delight. Worth mentioning here, the new Galaxy S4 too comes with a 13 megapixel camera at the rear. There is also mention of the Galaxy Note 3 to feature advanced photographic tools such as OIS or optical image stabilization enhancements, zooming along with lots more.
Samsung has already tasted success with its Galaxy Note range of devices which has successfully created a separate segment of its own. The Note devices have come to be known as ‘phablets’, which can be considered to be the perfect cross between a smartphone and a tablet. The popularity of the Galaxy Note series has spurred a lot of manufacturers such as LG, and now even Motorola and Nokia to include phablets in their lineup. Interestingly, the Galaxy Note’s success comes on the back of the Dell Streak that too featured a 5 inch display but could never make it big as far as sales is concerned. Another interesting strategy that Samsung seems to be working on is that the company wishes to diversify its phablet range with more devices under the Galaxy Grand nomenclature that will come in varying sceen sizes.
