The Samsung Galaxy Note III and the Samsung Galaxy Camera II are expected to be part of the Korean tech giant’s busy second half of 2013. New information that backs up the rumors of the impending arrival of the two devices has just been received by the Techtastic blog. In particular, Techtastic had gotten word that Galaxy Note III units have been shipped, albeit in limited quantities, for R&D.
The same phablet is also said to be bound to make an appearance at the Bluetooth Special Interest Group in the near future.
That said, the device’s unveiling will likely not be as early as that of devices like the Samsung Galaxy S IV Zoom. Samsung is believed to be giving consumers their first look at the Zoom, an upcoming camera and smartphone combo, on June 20th during a press event in London. Rather, the phablet may be in line for unveiling during IFA 2013 in Berlin, where Samsung can allow the device to take center stage.
Just last week, the successor to the Note II phablet was likewise seen in Samsung’s official website in Kazakhstan.
Sam Mobile has, for its part, published the possible list of specifications of the Note III. The phablet may sport a 5.99-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display, a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and Adreno 330 GPU. Also onboard are a 13 MP camera, and support for 4G LTE and 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity. The Note III will also boast of an improved S-Pen. For its operating system, the phablet may arrive with Android 4.2.2 or 4.3, overlaid with the Samsung TouchWiz interface.
Meanwhile, the same blog reports that the Samsung Galaxy Camera II will feature a 20.9 MP camera sensor.
The Galaxy Camera may join the Galaxy S IV Zoom and the Galaxy S IV LTE-Advanced during the aforementioned June 20 unveiling.
