Available to pre-order at SmartPhoneCentral soon, the Galaxy Note 3 is slimmer, lighter and more powerful. This version is the Octa-core model. There is also a quad-core 4G LTE version planned.

The new Galaxy Note 3 features a design with extremely slimmer bezels and sharper angles on its rounded edges, marking a slight departure from Galaxy device design language thus far. It’s thinner than its predecessor and lighter (168g), despite offering a larger screen at 5.7-inches. It also offers more battery life than the Galaxy Note 2, and there’s a new and improved S Pen, too.

The camera has 4K video recording capabilities with a new CRI LED flash that should improve low-light photography. Samsung claims nearly four more hours of battery life when playing back video, and performance in general during normal use should also extend battery by up to 40 percent over the previous generation.

Samsung was emphasizing craftsmanship with the Galaxy Note, which features a stitched leather rear cover (available in black, white and pink). It also has a metallic rim running around the edge, and there’s a flip wallet accessory available in 10 different colors that also features a larger S View window cover for checking messages, making calls and accessing more info at a glance without having to activate the whole display.

The new S Pen is designed to work with the larger screen. Samsung called it the “key” to unlocking Note features and power. This works via a number of new interface controls. There’s a dot on-screen that appears when you can activate “Air Command,” which is a tool wheel that provides quick access to memo, scrapbooking, screenwriting, and a finder search function. There’s also something Samsung calls “circle,” which uses a circle drawing gesture to capture content you want to save to your scrapbook, as called up via Air Command. Box is a way to multitask, that lets you do two things at once via essentially a picture-in-picture interface.

Samsung’s Knox mobile security feature, which is designed to help increase enterprise and consumer security via partitioned software for consumer and business use for BYOD device users. The Note 3 is expected to ship in late September.

Worth the upgrade!!!Review by Armstrong

I've had this phone now for 2 weeks and it has met all of my expectations and exceeded them even. I upgraded from the 8125 and just about everything is a huge improvement!
The 3G(UMTS) is very impressive with it's speed. I even use this phone as a modem on my home pc and it's nearly identical in speed as DSL when surfing the net or downloading file/music etc.
Camera is very impressive with clear resolutions for a camera phone with the 2MP.
I also use a bluetooth headset 2.0 with this and mine works wonderfully with sony erriccson; it's quite intuitive and picks up the signal instantly. The 'blackberry' scroll wheel is a huge plus on this phone and I find myself using this feature more than any other buttons. (Posted on 8/26/2007)
