With the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 launch date just days away, questionable Galaxy Note 3 accessories including cases and extended batteries continue to surface.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 launch date had been the elephant in the room ever since the company sent out invitations to an Unpacked Episode 2 event in Berlin, Germany for September 4th. The invites did not say what the company would be announcing but it was clear that it was the long rumored Galaxy Note 3.
Earlier this week, we finally saw Samsung confirm its plants to announce the Galaxy Note 3 on September 4th. Ahead of its launch, we’ve seen a number of rumors emerge and today, we’ve noticed Galaxy Note 3 accessories have emerge as well.
Amazon currently is host to a number of different Galaxy Note 3 accessories made by third party manufacturers. Earlier today, we showed you a few of those cases made by Hyperion which revealed very little about the Galaxy Note 3 and seem based on rumors and guesswork rather than actual specifications.
InventCase is currently offering several Galaxy Note 3 cases that are said to be compatible with the SM-N900 and SM-N9005 which are thought to be international variants of the Galaxy Note 3. The company is quick to note that they are available for the AT&T, Sprint and Verizon Galaxy Note 3 variants as well.
The company says that the cases are designed for the Galaxy Note 3 “released in September 2013” and that they will ship out in three to five weeks, right around the time the Galaxy Note 3 is expected to touch down.
Hyperion is not only offering cases but extended batteries for the Galaxy Note 3. The company, which also offers extended batteries for the Galaxy Note 2, does not say how big the batteries are but will gladly take around $10 for the privilege of ordering one for arrival in three to five weeks.
Consumers should not buy into these Galaxy Note 3 accessories, even if they appear tempting. Again, we’ve seen accessory makers try and capitalize on high profile Samsung launches only to fail to deliver in the end.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is expected to debut on September 4th with a release date pegged for September 27th in Taiwan. Pre-orders have been rumored to begin on September 16th, just over a week ahead of its release date.
Samsung’s new phablet is expected to come with a larger 5.7-inch 1080p display, 13MP camera, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, an upgraded S Pen, a design that is different than the Galaxy Note 2’s and a quad-core processor.
