Both Samsung Galaxy S3 as well as the new Google Nexus 7 tablet is coming in this season itself, according to a new certification in Asia. Certifying a certain product basically means a sort of confirmation that the particular device is in production already, or it might be ready for shipping or even be available in the market. The Galaxy Note 3 is expected to be hitting IFA 2013 to be held in Europe, late in this quarter though there is no news from the Google’s end regarding the release date of its Nexus 7 2 device.
According to rumors Galaxy S3 release date is expected to sport a rather big 6 inch display like that of the Galaxy Mega. According to a BGR article of the previous week, the Note 3 will also have four variants, much like the Galaxy Active, Zoom and Mini variants that we have seen bring derived from the base Galaxy S4 device. Similarly, Samsung is also likely to launch the Note 3 with different as well as unique features, colors, and also display sizes. The South Korean company will surely like to achieve the maximum penetration with the Note 3 by launching it with all the four major carriers in the US.
However, while Samsung used to be the sole player in the phablet segment which it is also credited to have created in the first place, it will soon lose the monopoly it once enjoyed. For manufacturers like Sony, HTC, LG as well as a few others are also eyeing the segment with equal zeal. This no doubt will force Samsung to come up with an even better product. HTC is expected to be launching its latest phablet, the HTC One Max at the end of the year while Sony has already launched its Xperia Z Ultra which comes with a rather large 6.4 inch display.
