Samsung announces the Galaxy Note 3, launching on September 25

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Philippines

Samsung has finally announced the much awaited Galaxy Note 3 at IFA 2013 in Berlin. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 comes with a larger 5.7-inch full HD Super AMOLED display while retaining the width of the body in a slimmer 8.3mm package. It sports the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with quad-core CPU clocked at 2.3GHz along with 3GB of RAM. The base internal memory is pegged at 32GB, with a 64GB variant available. It still comes with a microSD card slot. It comes with 4G LTE connectivity with support for 6 different bands and speeds of up to 150 Mbps (megabits per second). The battery is only a little larger at 3,200mAh.

Just like the Galaxy S4, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 comes with a 13 megapixel camera with LED flash. There is also a 2 megapixel camera on the front. Both cameras have a BSI sensor and comes with smart stabilization as there is no real OIS (optical image stabilization) included. It supports 4K UHD video recording at 30fps, 60fps on full HD 1080p, and slow-motion 120fps on HD 720p, which is quite a feat.

New and improved S Pen features

On the Galaxy Note 3, Samsung has made it easier for users to access S Pen commands. Users would only have to remember three key ways of S Pen input: dot, circle, and square.

A simple click of the S Pen represented by a dot while hovering over the screen launches Air Command. It is essentially sort of a palette which offers different functions. It has Action Memo which allows users to create a quick note and launch relevant actions based on what they’ve written thru the help of handwriting recognition. Screen Write is basically a screen capture command but with an option to draw anything on it like doodles. S Finder lets you search everything on your phone. With Scrapbook, you can draw a circle while you’re on apps like the browser to quickly save the whole content to the Scrapbook app, including the source link for quick access. Lastly, Pen Window allows you to launch mini apps just by drawing a square or a rectangle anywhere on the screen, and they can be of any size.

Do more with the enhanced Multi Window

The Multi Window on the Galaxy Note 3 was vastly improved. It now allows you to launch one app in two windows at the same time. It also adds Drag and Drop support so you can easily copy content such as texts or photos to and from different apps.

To give you a preview of the features of the Galaxy Note 3, you can watch the official video below.

Launching this month

Samsung has committed to bring and launch the Galaxy Note 3 in 125 countries on September 25, wherein the Philippines is most probably included.
