The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will finally be unveiled at the Samsung Unpacked 2013 Episode 2 event today which will kick off in Berlin at 19:00 CEST (Central European Summer Time) / 13:00 ET / 12:00 PT. Samsung's media event will be held two days prior to the IFA 2013 Berlin trade show, which will showcase devices from other major companies such as Sony, HTC and more.
Following the highly anticipated reveal of the third-generation phablet, the next question will be when the devices will release across major networks in the U.S. and Europe.
Samsung's launch of its flagship phone – the Samsung Galaxy S4 – was released in the U.S. shortly after its launch at the Samsung Unpacked event earlier this year. This means that the Galaxy Note 3 may also release in the U.S. in a relatively short time. The Galaxy Note 3 is expected to be available across all major U.S. networks – AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, and Sprint.
The Galaxy Note 3 is expected to come with fully improved specs – larger display at 5.68 inches and a clear 1080p resolution. Its 13-MP camera is likely to support 4k video.
Rumors confirmed that the Galaxy Note 3 will pack a Snapdragon 800 SoC processor and 2.5 GB RAM. It is expected to come in two variants –Snapdragon 800 and Exynos 5 Octa-core. The new processor features the new Quick Charge 2.0 protocol, which would allow for up to 75 percent faster battery charging on a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 handset.
