Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Launch Isn’t Coming Anytime Soon

Despite rumors of an imminent Samsung Galaxy Note 3 launch next week at Samsung’s June 20th launch event, consumers shouldn’t expect a Galaxy Note 3 launch anytime soon.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is rumored to be the successor to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and it’s thought to be coming with an assortment of upgrades that should make it an appealing one. Rumors suggest that the Galaxy Note 3 will arrive with a 5.9-inch 1080p display, quad-core processor that is either the Exynos 5 Octa or the Snapdragon 800, a 13MP camera and a design that is said, in part, to resemble the Samsung Galaxy S4 design.

Thus far, rumors have suggested that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 could launch in several different months including July, August and September. And now, it appears that there are rumors suggesting that the Galaxy Note 3 could launch as early as June 20th, the date on which Samsung has an event scheduled in the United Kingdom.

The Galaxy Note 3 launch isn’t likely to come until later this year.

Reports suggest that the Galaxy Note 3 could be announced on June 20th and go on sale in the next month with an exclusive version heading to AT&T’s 4G LTE network. Don’t bet on it.


While it’s possible that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 could launch earlier than the November release it got in the United States, there are currently no credible signs suggesting that Samsung will be announcing the device next week.

First, the device hasn’t leaked out in full just yet, something that typically happens in the months ahead of its release. The Galaxy Note 3, while rumored, still has a bit of mystery to it. We don’t expect the design to leak out until just before the device arrives so given that we haven’t seen it just yet, it’s not likely to arrive next week.

There are also recent reports suggesting that the Galaxy Note 3 is coming in September, not June, or July, or August. September. September has been the front-runner all along given Samsung’s penchant for announcing the new Galaxy Note at IFA in Berlin. IFA takes place in the beginning of September this year.

Maybe the most telling reason why the Galaxy Note 3 won’t arrive next week is the fact that it hasn’t announced an Unpacked event. Remember, the Galaxy S4’s Unpacked event was billed as Episode 1 and we fully expect Episode 2 to be for the Galaxy Note 3.

The invites to the June 20th event aren’t for an Unpacked event. And while we expect to see new devices and already announced devices showcased for the first time, we don’t expect the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. And those interested in buying the Galaxy Note 3 should not expect one to arrive next week either.
