Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Note 3, a highly anticipated flagship smartphone and star of numerous rumors before the IFA 2013 announcement.
Some of the specs and features will sound familiar, given the plethora of Galaxy Note 3 reports out there, but not all the phone’s secrets were revealed before its formal debut.
As you can see in the available images here, the Galaxy Note 3 is similar to its predecessor when it comes to overall design, although the company does describe it as a “new design language.”
While the handset is still made of plastic, it has a faux leather effect (“a soft and textured-touch back cover”), with a similarly “faux” stitch (“delicate stitching”) around the edges. The cover is removable, and houses a user-replaceable battery. As for the screen, we’re looking at an edge-to-edge display – with slim bezels if you will – similar to what we’ve seen in recent leaks. The Home button is still in the picture.
Now let’s get to the actual specs:
As you can see, the Galaxy Note 3 wasn’t the best kept secret in the world when it comes to specs, but Samsung did manage to prevent picture leaks to a certain degree.
Stay tuned for more Galaxy Note 3 details in the following hours, including hands-on video coverage and comparisons to existing Android handsets.
