“Note the date,” Samsung teased in its press initiations for the latest Unpacked event, making us certain that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will announced. Rumors have been rampant for both the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Gear watch.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is expected to feature either an Exynos 5 Octa 5420 processor or a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, as well as a 5.68-inch display, likely of the Full HD Super AMOLED variety. Reports also suggest the device may ship a 32GB model as its main internal storage option and may include up to 3GB of RAM as well as a 13-megapixel camera, a battery up to 3,450 mAh and LTE-Advanced technology. The Galaxy Note 3 will likely run the recently released Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system.
The Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch is expected to feature an Exynos 4212 dual core processor clocking in at 1.5GHz, a 320x320 non-flexible AMOLED display, 6GB and 8GB internal storage options, 1GB RAM, and a 4-megapixel camera. Other reports suggest Samsung will release the smartwatch in four colors -- white, orange, gray and black -- and will have up to 10 hours of battery life. The Galaxy Gear smartwatch will likely run a version of Android Jelly Bean, but which version remains uncertain.
