Today Samsung announced some new Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Accessories along with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phablet smart phone. Here we offer all the options and accessories users can get with the new smart phone.

In our run down of options and accessories we’ll show off the Samsung Galaxy Gear smart watch, the S View cover, Flip Cover and other cases they’ll offer in a number of color options available on the phone.

Users will have to wait till October to enjoy the phone and these accessories.

Samsung Galaxy Gear

We learned about the much awaited Samsung Galaxy Gear along with the Galaxy Note 3. It will work with the Note 3 and other Samsung Galaxy smart phones. The smartwatch connects to the phone via bluetooth.

Users can receive and make calls without taking their phone out. It connects and sends the voice from the call and to the call. One can use it for S-Voice commands.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Covers

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 comes with a cover called the S View cover that lets users use their phones without even opening the cover. They will come in colors matching the huge array of phone colors. One of them includes a cutout where users can see important details like the time, caller ID or text messages. Flip it open and the phone wakes up. Close it and it goes to sleep and shows the limited data. The cover also protects the phone from scratches while in a pocket.

The Flip Cover doesn’t offer the opening, and likely will cost less, much like the Note 2 covers.

The colors include electric red, metalic orange, glittery green, satin yellow, chrome gray and midnight blue. Samsung seems to want to make a phone for every outfit with more color options than almost any other phone.

Samsung Galaxy Note S Pen

The Samsung Galaxy Note’s S Pen comes with the phone, but functions like an accessory, making inking easy on the phablet. The S Pen fits into a silo on the phone. Take it out and create beautiful drawings, intricate diagrams and write more accurately than typical passive touch styli.

Samsung includes a function called Air Command that makes the pen useful no matter what app the user runs. Tap and hold to see all the functions it performs.

They all sell charging docks, extra batteries and more. Samsung offers various cables to charge their phones, connect to displays and docks for desk or car.

    ugly ass leather. WHAT THE HELL SAMSUNG… IF I WANTED LEATHER I WOULD HAVE BOUGHT SOME FURNITURE

      Fair enough … but think about the market they’re going for. You can still (apparently) buy notebooks with leather/quality covers … and people love ‘em.

      This is (in part) the market Sammy’s going for. People who like making notes, scribbles, doodle, diagrams. People like me! Actually I think it’s a huge market not well serviced by current tech. Sammy’s got a winner here.

      Also … people whined about “plastic, plastic, plastic”. So Sammy’s come up with a different quality finish. No lawsuits here, Mr Lawyerman ;-)

        I agree with mryy. I may not love the leather look but it gives it a nice feel. There will be plenty of cases and back cover options for those of us who may prefer a different feel. Let’s just enjoy this awesome piece of technology!

    Most of those colored backs are NOT leather, but I quite like the leather. Everyone complained about the shiny plastic and I think this is the best alternative. Metal is really over hyped right now.

    I had the leather back on my Blackberry Bold 9000 and 9700 and loved it actually. Yeah, nobody cares about BB anymore, including myself, but still. It’s been done before and it’s nice. This phone is not for the “kids”.

    I’m really excited about all of these potential colors and options available directly from samsung. I wonder how availability will pan out and how much they will cost.

    I’m waiting for Wireless charging as well…. Any Third party solutions?

    • Vic Matson

      May have to wait for the Note 4, it looks like they are pushing a new USB type of charging connection!

      • teknoreal

        09/06/2013 at 1:48 am

        It’s USB 3 micro charging/data port, and backwards compatible with your regular micro-USB 2 cable. This is Samsung, not that other company!

        • Vic Matson

          09/06/2013 at 2:27 am

          Yes, I know, that doesn’t change anything. One day wireless charging is a huge deal, the next it’s not. Any of those connections is a point of failure, and always has been. When they fail you must get another phone, sometimes at a large cost!

            09/06/2013 at 2:42 am

            I don’t follow you, Vic. You asked if there was a new non-standard connector and I said no. The normal USB micro connector will work.

            Now you’re talking about wireless charging … well … people might have speculated, but that’s all it was. Speculation.

            The point is … the new Note works with existing gear. Personally I think that’s consumer friendly. Don’t you?

            I should have asked, how common is plug connector failure? For any brand.

            Plus, since the battery is removable, you could always charge off the device. Can’t do that either with *other* companies ; -)

            Not really a single point of failure.

    I’m glad Verizon Wireless let me pre-order the Note-3 Phone & Galaxy Gear Watch combo, it looks nice and is non-slip. My photographic use will be mainly for signing releases, geo-tagging, flagging DNG files to be imported to LightRoom etc. while my sketches will be more for free-hand drawings (Pen & Ink w/WaterColor). I’ll hold off on buying the 13″ Wacom Cintique or Companion till I see the 12″ Samsung Note-2 Tablet.

    So bloody excited, just pre-ordered a black one. Love the faux leather too. Most excited about the Wireless Charging S Cover that I saw on another site. This will be the best phone I have ever owned.

    I really liked the new Note 3, specially the build finishing. You can even make your Note 3 prettier by covering it with a nice case such the new hybrid case from Spigen. Very nice and durable case. http://www.note3cases.com/

    Strange that the article did not mention that the Note 2 smart dock is compatible with the Note 3! This has been tested and videos put up on youtube:
