One of the highly anticipated phablets in the market right now was the Galaxy Note 3. Leaks and rumors suggested that the Note 3 would not only have slimmer design than the Note 2, but also have jaw dropping internals. Recent benchmark from AnTuTu performance report suggested that the Note 3 is even more beefier than the S4, which scored very impressively on the benchmark.
Well, the wait is now over. Samsung officially announced their Galaxy Note 3 phablet at IFA 2013 today, and it did impress quite a few people. The Note 3 comes with a slimmer and lighter design. The Note 2 was much thicker than the Note 1 when it was introduced before.
Moving on to the most interesting part of the phablet, the part which you guys are most looking forward to: the hardware. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 sports a 5.7″ Full HD Super AMOLED display, 1.9 GHz Exynos 5 Octa or 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 chipsets (depending on markets), 3GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB storage options with expandable microSD slot storage to 64GB. The Note 3 comes with 6 different band support in terms of LTE networking, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, GPS / GLONASS, NFC, Bluetooth v 4.0, IR LED (Remote Control), and MHL 2.0 port for wired connectivity.
The Note 3 comes with a 13 mega-pixel camera being brought over from the S4, and it also includes a high-CRI (color rendering index) LED flash. Depending on the Note model, the camera can record 4K Ultra HD video or 1080p video with 60fps. Also, Ultra High Quality Audio (~192KHz, 24 bit) support is present. The phablet also comes with a 3200 mAh battery life to provide you a long day battery life without having to worry about charging all the time.
The Galaxy Note 3 will become available on September 25th in more than 140 countries worldwide. In the U.S., it will appear later this year on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and U.S. Cellular.
