Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Release Date Will be the Same as Next-Gen iPhone

The Galaxy Note 3 release date is pegged for Samsung’s Q2 (summer 2013) and a host of other new specs and features, just in time to compete with Apple’s next iPhone launch.

New rumours claimed that Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be announced on summer of 2013, which is the speculated release date of iPhone 6 and/or iPhone 5S.

The third generation of the Galaxy Note will definitely be released this year, although the exact release date is still unknown. New rumours claimed that the phablet will be launched in summer.

Given the success of its Samsung Galaxy Note phablet line-up, it’s obvious that Samsung will launch the Galaxy Note 3 later this year.

While Samsung Galaxy S4 is expected to drop in April and hurt iPhone 5′s sales, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date might be scheduled for late Q2 2013 or early Q3 2013, in an attempt to bite a large chunk of iPhone 5S’ market share pie.

It was initially reported that Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be announced at the recently concluded Mobile World Congress.

However, the device went MIA. Moreover, Samsung released a press invite that hinted the imminent release of Samsung Galaxy S4.

Since the latest reports are showing that Apple will set the iPhone 5S release date for June, we might even see the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 in flesh at IFA Berlin 2013, held between September 6 – 11.

Or maybe Samsung will unveil its next-gen tablet in a separate event (just like it did with the Galaxy S3) a week before IFA Berlin, so all the media will be focusing on their new release.

However, there are a lot of theories regarding the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date, so you can’t know which one is the right one.

A number of leaks have already surfaced revealing that Samsung engineers are hard at work developing a wireless charger in time for the Galaxy Note 3 release date.

The latest source for this rumor is a video of the new technology filmed at FCC.

The first reports are indicating that the unit is wide enough to accommodate a Galaxy Note 2, and will probably also be compatible with the Galaxy Note 3, notes Android Geeks.

The other technical specifications might not be as impressive as the alleged 6.3-inch Full HD screen display with unbreakable and flexible screen, 16 megapixel rear camera with auto focus, LED flash and BSI and 3 megapixel front camera with ‘Best Photo,’ ‘Best Faces,’ low light show and BSI and Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie OS.

The biggest improvement to Samsung’s phablet will likely be the processor chip. When the Galaxy Note 3 release date arrives we expect it to sport the much-hyped Exynos 5 Octa 8-core processor.

Other features include stylus And finger hovering feature, 32, 64 and 128 GB internal memory options expandable storage via microSD cards; 4,000 mAh Li-on battery.

Because the Galaxy Note 3 will reportedly come with a gigantic 6.3-inch display, Samsung will probably take the multitasking to a new level.

Some say that the screen will split in four separate 480 x 270 pixels screens each capable of running an individual app.

However, Samsung spokesman said that the company does not comment on rumours.

Last month at CES 2013, Samsung teased the Galaxy S4 Galaxy Note 3 release dates with a presentation focusing on their beefed up processor.
