Samsung Exec Confirms Galaxy Note III Announcement On September 4th

Screen Shot 2013-08-27 at 9.55.55 AM


A bit of good news this morning as a Samsung exec apparently absolutely, positively confirmed the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Note III on September 4th. Samsung’s unpacked event already seemed like a sure thing for the Galaxy Note III given that’s the same event the Note II was announced last year. However, this time it’s straight from the horse’s mouth thanks to Samsung’s Lee Young-hee and a conversation with Korea Times.

Along with the news, comes two more pieces of information including pictures reportedly of the Note III from two sources. claims to have received some hardware that is purportedly from the Galaxy Note III screen. They claim their source is a trusted person in China with access to the parts. The leak echoes another series of images from which also shows the Galaxy Note III display assembly. According to their measurements, the next-generation Galaxy Note III display will measure 5.68 inches.

As a side note unfortunately unrelated to T-Mobile directly is the other statement Young-hee made to the Korea times confirming the upcoming arrival of the Galaxy Gear smart watch. Calling it a companion gadget for the smartphone, he declined to offer any more details. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m much more interested in something I can wear on my wrist and not glasses.

    fingers crossed for a Google Play Edition

    • rizo

      Are you hoping for a Google play edition or a Google edition? Btw, if they decide to release a Google edition, the S Pen will be rendered useless.

      • Chris

        The S Pen would still work lol. The display doesn’t change because it no longer has touchwiz.

        • rizo

          The display tactics change. The software is built to recognize the S Pen. It will only work with apps for drawing ect… It won’t work for standard operations. If you have/had a note II and flashed an AOSP rom, you’ll know what I’m talking about. “LOL”.

        • anonuser

          As a matter of fact I do have a note 2 and when used with cm and papyrus it worked fine with the wacom digitizer. You just don’t get the tw features like peeking at stuff with the stylus or some of the other stuff but basic functionality isthere

        The Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One that are sold in the Google Play store are called “Google Play Edition”.

  • Noor Mahmoud

    Here are hopes to a Wolfson dac in the T-mobile version.

    Meanwhile, Apple execs in Cupertino are desperately trying to come up with a marketing campaign to prove that the new champagne-colored 4-inch-screen iPhone is “innovative” and better than anything Samsung has to offer! :)

    • Bklynman

      Who champagne color iPhone? Wow as soon as it come out I will out get one! Not! LoL!

    • Roger Sales

      Apple could solve a lot of their issues for going for a more ample screen(4.7 seems to be the sweet spot nowadays). I just think they’re being too cheap about the whole thing, when they should be looking to sell more phones even if it slightly affects their ginormous profit margin. They could even just settle for multiple screen sizes, but I think they’re too proud because it would make them seem like they’re copying Samsung on that frontier.

      Then again, we won’t know til September will we?

  • Justin Black

    I’ve been thinking about a large screen phone, but I think I’ll wait for the Nokia 1520 to make a decision on that.

  • kev2684

    i’ll probably go with the HTC One Max which is rumored to have 5.9″ screen. this is an incremental upgrade in screen size for me from Note II’s 5.5″

  • guest33

    looks like the first galaxy note

  • BuddyLuv

    YEEEEEAAAAAAAHHHHH! I don’t think am gonna upgrade to this. I’ll save my dough for the HTC One Max (T6)

  • Paddy_Tanninger_Caddy_Manager

    Can I get a woot woot?

  • JBLmobileG1

    I know the Note 3 is around the corner, literally, but I just upgraded to the Note 2. No out of pocket was a plus and T-mobile gave me free overnight shipping plus they put the taxes which I would have owned now on my next bill. I know it’s probably not a huge upgrade from my S3 but having a larger screen phone with its own dedicated stylist I think is pretty cool. I also upgraded to the jump plan so I can always upgrade later without having to wait another 2 years.

    • superg05

      it is a huge upgrade

    • Anthony trotman

      Ha ur joking. I had a s3 then I switched to the note2.
      Big upgrade …..


    What is inside this thing that makes it special? I have a note II, but if all it offers is a slightly larger screen, they have not sold me on the upgrade. Can anyone offer factual info on what the upgrade is?

    • BkEnigma

      It’d be foolish of Samsung not to just do what essentially the Note 2 was vs the S3. If they do that with the Note 3 in comparison to the S4, hopefully we’ll get that 13MP camera along with the essentials that usually come with upgrades (bigger battery, newer version of Android and of course the slightly bigger screen).

      While I have no proof of this, I’d bet a large amount of money all the aforementioned features will be improved from the Note 2.

    • JBLmobileG1

      My guess is the Note 3 will be like a large S4 with possibly a faster processor and a few extra features that are probably more of a gimmick than something actually useful. I definitely expect the same size 13mp camera and a larger full 1080p screen. Rumors did mention 3gb of ram but who knows… it’s a possibility considering the LG G2 is said to offer that much. Even though I know it’s coming out I still upgraded to the Note 2. I know most reviews of it, people really like it. So while it’s not the latest model available come the next few days, I think it will be good at least for the next 6 months.

      • AZN

        Note 3 will have the exynos 5 octa-processor. 4 of which will run a15 architecture and 4 will run a9 architecture. Better battery life and much faster computing power. That is the biggest feature. 13mp camera is nice but Samsung doesn’t go big on imaging processors or anything.

  • superg05

    i know you like trolling apple samsung but lose the damn button on screen keys only please


      I really like the physical button. Please do not do away with it.

      • superg05

        they can stick in on the side lol

    • 21stNow

      I don’t agree with your wording, but I do agree with your sentiment. I don’t like the physical home button on Android devices, either.

      • superg05

        yeah i know there not trolling apple its just Google said after android 3.0 physical button are not necessary but oems keep tacking them on until just recently with the new LG and the moto x

  • Because the “Note the Date” hint was super subtle.

    Can’t wait.

  • William Burr Winans

    Why didn’t T-Mobile get the Samsung Mega 6.3?

  • weezy34

    So Wednesday is the big day for Samsung. Lets hope they don’t try to have some off-broadway bad acting skit this time.

  • Wow ! I might really be waiting for the Note 4 ! If you own a Note II like me and have literally gotten a new device every 6-12 months…..this speaks volumes on how great the note 2 really is!.Let the Note4 be SUPER!
