As soon as a new mobile device hits the market and even before, statisticians keenly run the hardware through a series of benchmark tests, which offer a fairly accurate idea of the general overall performance. In the past, we've seen evidence of Samsung rigging the International Galaxy S4's GPU to perform better when running these apps, and now, the folks of Ars Technica have concluded beyond doubt that the Korean company has been up to its tricks again with the Galaxy Note 3.
The Galaxy Note 3, which Samsung announced earlier on this month, may be a beast in every sense of the word, but it's not without its shortcomings. Upon looking at the specs alone, it's hard to pick a fault in a device to which Sammy has applied some of the most high-end hardware at its disposal, but if you're a frequent traveller and wishing to use that unholy amount of display real estate to browse the Web from outside your own country, you're going to have a spot of bother on your hands. Yes, as you can see from the title, the Galaxy Note 3, including the Note 2, Galaxy S3, S4 and S4 mini are now being sold region-locked, and considering what the company is offering for its consumers, it would seem a counter-intuitive move on the part of the Korean company.
Samsung announced the latest version of its largest smartphone at IFA yesterday, and the Galaxy Note 3 is sure to be popular amongst both those that want to carry a mini-tablet around 24/7 and anyone who tends to turn into a big green superhero when they're mad. If you happen to fit snugly into either of those categories, then the chances are you're already we clued up on what the third generation of Galaxy Note can offer you, but if you're on the fence then you'll be on the lookout for all the information you can get.
Samsung has just announced the new and improved iteration of the Galaxy Note series, the third revision of its massive Android based phablet. The redesigned device will now feature a 5.7 inch screen (as compared to the 5.3” version of Note 2), and sports a faux-leather back while being a shade lighter at 168g. Details to follow.
September is shaping up to be an increasingly exciting time for the mobile technology industry. Apple is widely expected to announce at least two new iPhones along with iOS 7 next month, but there is also a huge amount of excitement surrounding the September 4th Samsung Unpacked 2013 event, that promises to bring a number of announcements. One of those products that will make an appearance is the third-generation Galaxy Note and today's fresh new report suggests that video and music lovers will be in for a treat when this one hits the market.
It’s a no-brainer that loyal Samsung fans have September 4th penciled down in their diaries for quite some time, which is the rumored Galaxy Note 3 release date. We are getting to that time of the year when we are about to see product announcement and launch events happening from a number of large players in the technology scene, with Samsung being one of the biggest. It's widely expected that the South Korean electronics giant will introduce us to the third-generation Galaxy Note on the 4th of September but, like a lot of others, it's the potential specifications of the purported device that has whet our appetites.
With the Galaxy S4 having been comfortably established in the market for a good while now, most recent press pertaining Samsung's smartphone division has encircled the release of the highly-anticipated Galaxy Note 3. Reports today suggest the device could be unveiled in just a month's time, and to up the ante just a little further, it also appears we may finally see evidence of Samsung's elusive smart watch effort, or the Galaxy Smart Watch as the tech world loves to call it.
We've been chasing the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for a good few months now, and seen a plethora of spec leaks from tipsters in the process. Today, however, we've got something a little more concrete: a complete list of specs sourced from none other than the Korean company itself. WAP provisioning files found on Samsung Mobile’s website confirm two devices with the model numbers SM-N900T and SM-N900A, both of which refer to the Note 3, and also a run-down of some of the specifications. Details after the break!
The Samsung Galaxy S series may be the most popular in the Android scene, but the Korean company's phablet Note range has certainly risen to prominence over the past couple of years. 2011's initial launch was followed by a successful follow-up last year, and as such, anticipation levels for the Note III are as high as they've ever been. With the Galaxy S4 now done and dusted, it's perhaps one of the main focal points in mobile space, and an unnamed Samsung executive has apparently dished a few more intriguing details.
Anticipation for the Galaxy Note 3 and Android 4.3 release is approaching fever pitch. If you happen to be a tad bit excited about the prospect of its release, I'm sure you'll be impressed by the just-leaked benchmark scores.
