Rumors about the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phablet have been piling up for months, with leaks and details emerging on an almost-weekly basis.
Samsung has yet to reveal any official specifications, but there’s plenty we think we know about the device — and heaps we don’t. Here’s a collection of what’s expected and what still remains uncertain for the Galaxy Note 3 “phablet.”
September 4 reveal date
If official invitations that clearly point to the Note as the big reveal weren’t enough, a Samsung executive confirmed the Galaxy Note 3’s September 4 debut (alongside the Galaxy Gear smartwatch.)
Bigger than ever
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be larger than its 5.3 and 5.5-inch predecessors. Samsung co-CEO Shin Jong-kyun claimed the Galaxy Note 3 will feature a 5.9-inch display. I put my money on that measurement, though the most recent rumors suggest it will have a 5.68-inch1,920×1,080-pixel display. Even earlier, conflicting rumors indicated that Samsung had been testing other screen sizes.
Some models will reportedly feature an LCD panel, whereas others will see Samsung’s own Super AMOLED screen tech.
In stores by September
The black and white colors should be made available in the days following the announcement; the pink version could arrive by late October. According to ePrice (translate), the global model will be offered on September 27 with preorders starting on September 16.
