The Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the much-anticipated follow-up to the brilliant Note II, will be launched at a press event on September 4 in Berlin.
The phone will be “unpacked” at the event, which will be live-streamed on YouTube. The first date the phone will be sold is still unknown, but likely soon after the event.
Mobile phone review website Gotta Be Mobile posits that updated specs will include a larger screen along with a new design. The Note II is hailed for having such a large screen that some people mistake it for a tablet (5.95 inches x 3.17 inches x .37 inches).
“Thanks to many leaks it’s clear the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is set to arrive with a larger screen,” says the site. “A leaked document appears to show Samsung experimenting with a 5.5-inch, 5.7-inch and 6-inch display for the Galaxy Note 3, but in the end it looks like the Galaxy Note 3 will feature a 5.7-inch 1080P display.”
The price for the Galaxy Note III has not been disclosed as of yet.
The Note II was unveiled at a Samsung event in Berlin last year, on August 29, while it was released into the United States at the end of September. Another key feature of the phone was the S-pen, which is similar to the pen that comes with a Blackberry phone. It allows the user to write or draw on the screen.
