It was announced couple days ago by Samsung that it will hosting a special event on 4th September in Berlin where it plans to launch its new Galaxy smartphone. It is highly expected that the phone is going to be the Galaxy Note III.
The invitations have been sent, which are handwritten, and the indications are towards the Galaxy Note III. For the reporters who for any reason won’t be able to travel to the IFA, Samsung will host another event at Times Square. The Berlin event will be broadcasted on Samsung’s channel on Youtube.
Rumours are that the Samsung Galaxy Note III will pack an Octa-core Exynos 5420 or a Snapdragon 800 processor under the hood. The phone will have 3GB of RAM and a 5.7 inch or a 6 inch 1080p display.
The phone will sport a 13 megapixel rear camera with possibly the optical image stabilization technology. It would run the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS and would also have support for LTE-A for high speed connectivity.
It was also rumoured that Samsung had been working on improving the user experience of its S-Pen. Benchmark tests have also been spotted on various sites online, reported SamMobile, the most trusted Samsung source.
However, the report published on SamMobile says that the device is running Android 4.3 and is clicked at 2.3 GHz. The score was much lower than the actual capability of the Snapdragon chipset.
Its predecessor Galaxy Note II was highly successful for the South Korean giant as it sold nearly 5 million devices within the first two months of its launch.
