Samsung Galaxy Note 3: New Launch Dates Emerge

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has several times been pegged for arrival during the month of September, however, a new report suggests that Samsung could actually launch it in either July or August, much earlier than has been expected.

All along, signs have pointed to a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 launch in September, at IFA 2013 in Berlin, Germany. The event is the same place that Samsung has announced the previous two Galaxy Note models and is, as of right now, the most likely candidate for an Episode 2 of Samsung’s Unpacked launch event series.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 could arrive as early as July, according to a new report.

However, a new report from Digitimes suggests that Samsung might be planning to launch the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 as soon as July or August, August of course being the same month that Samsung launched last year’s Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The publication has a mixed track record, but on many occasions, has been correct so it’s hard to ignore what are now two new launch dates in July and August. No specific date is given.

As we saw with the Samsung Galaxy S4, initial launch rumors aren’t always correct, so it’s entirely possible that we could see the Galaxy Note 3 arrive in a different month, apart from IFA 2013. We also saw Samsung release the Samsung Galaxy S4 earlier than the Galaxy S3, so it’s entirely possible that we could see it do the same with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

Despite the new dates, IFA 2013 should still be considered the frontrunner.

Rumors in regards to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 have been heating up recently with whispers suggesting that Samsung is planning to release a phablet with a Samsung Galaxy S4 design, 13MP camera, Exynos 5 Octa processor and/or a Snapdragon 800 processor, and a larger 5.99-inch to 6-inch display with 1080p resolution.

The software is still a mystery though consumers should expect it to arrive with the latest version of Android to go along with some new, Samsung-made software features. Just what those features might be, and if they pertain to the Galaxy Note’s unique S Pen, are unclear at this time.

    it is not Octa core, it is 2 sets of 4 cores each, but at a time only one set is used.. so technically it is no better than Quad core.
    Samsung claims that they are putting second set for low power operation, but the truth is that they can not do dynamic clock and voltage scaling on first set of cores (but Qualcomm can do), and that forces them to use another set. It is so easy to impress consumers by just showing them half truth. :)

      Not strictly true. It offers better performance than conventional quad-core architecture by relying on a low-voltage ARM A7 for the humdrum activity and keeping back the meatier (more power-hungry) ARM A15 for the big stuff.

      Basically one runs at a time depending on demand, so you won’t be burning through power checking your email.

      Sure, at any given time only one quad-core chip will be running but the advantages are clear to see.

    its unlikely to release note 3 in July, because samsung is still finding shortage of the raw materials for S4, they are selling s3 in 3 different variants because of exynos chip shortage. so note 3 probably will release in September
