The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 smartphone was unveiled earlier this month carrying a bold set of hardware specification under a great design that is utility based. Now Samsung is all set to launch the Galaxy Note 3 in India on September 17 as it has sent out media invites for an event on that day promising the launch of the “Next Galaxy Deviceâ€.
The Galaxy Note 3 features a 5.7-inch Full HD Super Amoled display and in India the device will come with the 1.9 GHz Samsung Exynos 5 octa core processor. This processor consists of a quad core Cortex-A15 processor clocked at 1.9 GHz to take care of heavy processing part and another quad core Cortex-A7 processor clocked at 1.3 GHz to take care of the operating system and user interface, offering battery savings and performance at the same time.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 packs 3 GB RAM and comes in 32 GB or 64 GB storage variants but which one of these two will be launched in India is not clear right now. Both the variants though have a memory card slot to support up to 64 GB micro SD card. At the back, the phone has a stereo speaker and a 13 megapixel BSI sensor clad camera with auto focus and LED Flash. This camera sensor possesses zero shutter lag. The camera is capable of recording ultra-high definition videos at 30 frames per second and smooth motion full HD videos at 60 frames per second. Also, users can experiment with the slow motion HD videos at 120 frames per second.
Samsung has layered the Nature UX over the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update to run smoothly over the powerful hardware.
Samsung has introduced the enhanced S Pen experience with the Note 3 and has offered better functionality integration with the user interface. Samsung has also added a new feature called KNOX – a new security feature that ensures the user to run security-sensitive applications and data in a secured container environment.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 offers WiFi (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac), Near Field Communication, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, IR LED blaster, MHL 2.0 and GPS with GLONASS support. Along with that device has been given a variety of sensors such as Gesture, Accelerometer, Geo-magnetic, Gyroscope, RGB, Proximity, Barometer, Temperature & Humidity and Hall Sensor.
The Galaxy Note 3 is 8.3 mm thick and weighs 168 grams including the Li-ion 3200 mAh battery. The price of the device is expected to hover around the Rs 40,000 + mark where it will make absolute sense, and considering Samsung which is known for sensibly pricing its devices we have high hopes.
