Samsung Galaxy Note 3

note3_01A new unveiling came to word at IFA’s exhibition from Samsung. And it is nothing less than the new Galaxy Note 3! With the  Samsung Galaxy S4 now out of the way, the path is clear for the Korean giant (other high-end Smartphone), to get a reboot in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Rumours are circulating about Samsung’s next super-sized handset, suggesting it’s going to get even bigger.

HOW IT LOOKS

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 it’s plastic, but the back cover features faux-leather and stitching, for emphasis on a nice in-hand feeling.

More images of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 have surface, this time showing off a rounder handset which bears more of a resemblance to the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S4.

The screen has sized up a bit, but the weight is actually down. The Note 3 tips the scales at 168g, compared the 183g of the Note 2. Due to sheer size it’s still a two-handed device though.

Early reports pointed towards a whopping 6.3-inch display,which would see the handset dwarf the 6.1-inch Ascend Mate and 5.7-inch Grand Memo.

Other sources have claimed that the Galaxy Note 3 could actually pack a slightly more modest 5.9-inch AMOLED screen.

Screen size, remains a mystery but we’re also hearing that the Galaxy Note 3 may actually pack a 5.99-inch Full HD display. Full HD resolution has to be correct, as Samsung will want the best for its high-end phablet. 

SOFTWARE

Samsung has confirmed that the Note 3 will launch with Android 4.3, while SamMobile, claims that the handset will be the most powerful in the word with a octa-core processor, eight-core GPU, 3GB of RAM, 5.99-inch Full HD display and a 13MP rear camera.

Also, according to “industry officials” the Galaxy Note 3` camera could well support 4K video recording (this is highly unlikely) because 4K recordings would take up vast amounts of storage on the handset and there are very few devices the video can be properly enjoyed on at the moment.

The Note 3 is rumoured to be the first Samsung phone to have the S Orb panoramic photo feature. This is Samsung’s version of Google’s new Photo Sphere feature, which lets you take multiple photos in a 360-degree arc around you, and stitch the results up into a Google Street View-style collage to upload to Google+.

The key difference between S Orb and Photo Sphere is that Samsung’s version will integrate with Face book.

Samsung has unveiled its octa-core Exynos 5 chip, with eight processor cores. Designed as a replacement for the Exynos 4 quad-core chip powering the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 devices, and an upgrade to the Exynos 5 Dual found in the Samsung-manufactured but Google-branded Nexus 10 tablet, the Exynos 5 Octa promises significant gains in performance and power usage.

The Exynos 5 Octa combines a quad-core next-generation 28nm 1.8GHz ARM Cortex-A15 processor – an upgrade to the 1.6GHz Cortex-A9 chip found in the Galaxy S3 and the 1.7GHz dual-core Cortex-A15 chip in the Nexus 10 – with a secondary quad-core Cortex-A9 processor running at 1.2GHz.

The idea, Samsung explains, is that when the phone or tablet is doing lightweight work such as playing music, making a phone call or browsing the internet, the more powerful Cortex-A15 cores can be completely disabled and the Cortex-A9 cores used instead. The result, Samsung claims, is an improvement in power efficiency of around 70 per cent compared to the Exynos 4 Quad in the Galaxy S3.

The new Galaxy Note 3’s combination of large display and S Pen stylus are designed to make running multiple apps in windows easier and more intuitive.

Windowed apps have long been a part of Samsung’s TouchWiz software, but the Note 3 has given it an overhaul. The S Pen can used to open the Air Command wheel to launch apps or write directly on the screen.

To keep all those windows manageable, you can set a window’s size by drawing a box, then turn into the app you want. That way you can have two sides by chats or browser windows, or any set of multiple apps you choose.
