Hello Samsung Galaxy Fans!
Yesterday, 4th September 2013, the new Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was unveiled at the SAMSUNG UNPACKED 2013 – Episode 2 event held at IFA 2013 in Tempodrom, Berlin, Germany. It was also streamed lived on the big screen at Times Square, New York City, USA and there was also a live stream online on YouTube.
Also announced was the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 2014 Edition and the Samsung GALAXY Gear, THE much rumoured and highly anticipated Android watch from Samsung!
Introducing the Samsung GALAXY Note 3 :
The Note 3 is bigger (slightly) and slimmer as compared to the Note 2, but what I like is the 3Gb system memory (Note 2 has 2Gb) and a faster CPU – 2300MHz Quad Core (Note 2’s CPU is clocked at 1600MHz, Quad Core)
There is also a big improvement to the S-pen capabilities, and I hope that it will come to our Note 2 as an OS upgrade soon (some says October 2013?)

When Are We Getting The Samsung Galaxy Note 3?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear will be launched on 25th September 2013 Worldwide in 149 Countries!
There were a few improvements of the Note 3 vs the Note 2, but will you ditch your Note 2 and upgrade to the Note 3 when it is available in Singapore or your part of the world?
I do not intend to upgrade to Note 3 (from Note 2) anytime soon. I really wanted an even bigger screen (The Samsung Mega 6.3 is nice, if only they have a faster processor and better memory too!).
