Samsung may unveil the next generation Galaxy Note device and its rumoured smart watch at an event on September 4.
A report in The Korean Media, first picked up by Techkiddy notes that Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note III on September 4 at Berlin. That is two days before the IFA conference kicks off in Berlin, Germany, the event where the original Galaxy Note and its successor have been unveiled in past years.
According to the original report, Samsung will also use the event to unveil its wearable computing device – most likely a smart watch – giving it a head start over arch rival Apple, which is widely tipped to unveil its iWatch soon. Sony recently unveiled SmartWatch 2, a wearable companion for Android devices.
There’s no fresh information in terms of specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Note III, or the smart watch. As per earlier reports, Galaxy Note III will come with a 5.7-inch full-HD AMOLED display. It will reportedly be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor alongside 3GB of RAM and run on Android 4.3, the latest iteration of Google’s operating system. In terms of camera, Samsung’s latest phablet is expected to sport a 13-megapixel rear shooter.
Samsung recently unveiled the Exynos 5420 Octa processor, so the Galaxy Note III may be powered by Samsung’s own processor in some markets, and the Qualcomm chip in others, similar to the strategy it followed with the Galaxy S4.
