Samsung is definitely bringing a new smartphone to the Unpacked Event in IFA on September 4, from what we know, this new smartphone will be the Galaxy Note 3, the third phablet in the Note smartphone series.
With Samsung’s huge push to always get the stock delivered ahead of the month, new reports have said the Galaxy Note 3 will be available to pre-order on September 4, just a few hours after the event.
The full launch would happen a little later, one source says that week 36, mid-September, would be the ideal time for Samsung to launch the Galaxy Note 3. It is expected to be a worldwide launch, in the US, Europe and Asia.
Samsung is preparing to drop the 16GB model of the Galaxy Note 3 and may add a 128GB version. The Galaxy Note 3 is expected to have a 5.6-inch 1080p screen, Snapdragon 800/Exynos 5 processor, 3GB of RAM and 3300mAh battery.
As for the Galaxy Gear, the new smartwatch coming to IFA at the same event, the source says week 40 would be around the time this device launches, meaning Samsung will have the Galaxy Gear out before the iWatch, Apple’s reported smartwatch project.
We have already got a look at the internals and design of the Galaxy Gear from a leaked report on the smartwatch, it seems like a clever competitor to the Pebble and Sony Smartwatch 2, with lots of sensors.
