Samsung Galaxy Note 3 expected features:

After sorting numerous reports from across the globe, we expect the third generation Samsung phablet to sport a 5.68-inch Super AMOLED full HD display with thin bezel and run on latest Android v4.3 Jelly Bean OS with 3GB RAM (or 2.5GB).

The new phablet is rumoured to house a high-end 13.0-megapixel camera on the rear side with the S Orb camera feature which will enable the user to click 360 degrees panorama image in a single shot. Just a few days ago, rumours surfaced online that the camera would also record 4K resolution Ultra HD (3840x2160p) videos, more than twice the current full HD (1920x1080p) resolution standard. Many believe that this rumour is a little far-fetched and we expect our readers to take this speculated feature with a pinch of salt.  

Word on the street is that Samsung would sell Galaxy Note 3 in two variants - 4G-LTE model which will be powered by 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 series processor with Adreno 330 GPU in developed markets (North America and Europe), where advanced 4G network are already available, and a 3G compatible model housing Samsung's very own Exynos 5420 Octa-core processor (with ARM Mali-T628 MP6 graphics engine) that would be released in developing markets of South East Asia (including India), Middle-East, South America and African markets.


New unconfirmed report has surfaced online that Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will also boast-off finger print scanner, since this is still a specualtion, we advice our readers not jump the gun just yet. Few hours from now,Samsung will end all the suspense surrounding this new generation phablet. If the rumours do come true, Samsung sure to over shadow its arch rival Apple which is set unveil new iPhone 5S on 19 september, which is also expected to feature finger print reader on its home button.

Samsung Galaxy Gear:

The second attraction of the Samsung event will be the smartwatch Galaxy Gear. It is pegged to sport a 2.5-inch OLED display with 320x320p resolution and pack Samsung's in-house built 1.5GHz Exynos 4212 dual-core processor with Mali-400 MP4 graphics engine.

The smartwatch will reportedly run on the customised Android v4.3 Jelly Bean OS with keyboard and browser applications being turned-off. Other specification includes 1GB RAM, 4.0-megapixel camera and 24 hours battery back with moderate use, but the battery life is said drain quickly if used extensively. Rumuors are rife that Samsung would sell the smartwatch with two storage variants - 6GB and 8GB,
