Summary:

Samsung might be gearing up to launch the Galaxy Note III, as well as its first smartwatch, in just over a month, according to a report.

Samsung's Galaxy Note II

A Friday report from BGR tips the launch of the Galaxy Note 3, as well as Samsung’s first foray into the smartwatch world, for September 4. This would place it just ahead of Apple’s expected iPhone 5S launch, allowing the Galaxy Note III time to gain some traction before Apple steals the show for a while.

The Galaxy Note 2 came out just over 9 months ago, but the Galaxy Note 3 is expected to be badder, and yes, bigger, in every way. Reports have pegged the “phablet” as featuring a 5.7-inch 1080p screen, up from the already-mammoth 5.5-inch 720p display on the Galaxy Note II.

The Note 3 is also expected to feature a 13-megapixel camera, like the Galaxy S 4, as well as 3GB of RAM and a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor. And of course, with that giant screen, there will likely be improved support for Samsung’s S Pen.

HTC is reportedly working on a Galaxy Note 3 competitor, the 6-inch HTC One Max, to launch around the same time.

After Samsung’s monster Radio City Music Hall reveal of the Galaxy S 4, perhaps Madison Square Garden should be put on notice.

      You must really like bezel.

    2. It’s going to be the exact same transition from the s3 to the s4, you’re just going to lose a little bit of bezel.

    3. Size will always lose some & gain others. Personally I was hoping for 6″+. Like the Z Ultra.

    1. Same here, I really love to have a pink one just like my galaxy note. Hope they will release the pink one together with the white or black.

    2. I agree, I love the rumored screen size and even if it was 5.99″ or 6.0″ I’d still get it. Can’t wait!!!!

  4. 5.7 is perfect. Wlnt stretch my pockets out. Lol Don‘t forget a lot of us run out and buy otter boxes , Griffin . So the 5.7 in a protective case will bulk up pushing the limits were you can carry this on you. Excited for launch. Keeping my s3 for the atv as a gps/outdoors phone.

  5. I really hope Note 3 comes in different colors, red, metallic blu, pink and chocolate brown, to name a few. Also hope they make it as light or nearly light as the S4. Really cannot wait to get my hands on this Godzilla of a smartphone. Hurry up Samsung team. What’s keeping you from delivering the Sammy Note 3?
