Samsung has lifted off the curtains over its flagship device, Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The phablet is an upgrade to the Galaxy Note II and brings with it a few unique and interesting features. Here is a quick look at what you can expect the device to do for you, once you get your hands on it.
4K Video Recording
The Note III is the second device to feature 4K video recording capabilities through its 13 MP rear camera after the Acer Iconia Liquid S2. Sony has launched 4K capable TV’s in India and the upcoming PS4 also boasts of 4K support, so yes the device is future proof if you are one who like to shoot videos from your smartphone/phablet.
The Galaxy Note III will also be available with two chipset options in the market – Snapdragon 800 clocked at 2.3GHz and the Exynos Octa-core SoC clocked at 1.9GHz. The RAM on both the variants will be 3GB, which is an upgrade from the 2GB found on the Note II. With a powerful processor and 3GB of RAM, you can expect to pull off some impressive multi-tasking on the phablet.
Bigger Display, Better Entertainment
The Note II had a 5.5-inch display with a 1280 x 760 pixel resolution. The Note III takes this a step further and sports a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution giving the device a pixel density of 386 ppi, higher than the previous Note devices. The phablet also has stereo speakers for the people who doesn’t like to plug-in headphones all the time.
The Samsung Galaxy Note III is the first device to come with USB 3.0 capabilities and that is a big deal. USB 3.0 support on the Note III will ensure faster data transfer speeds from your PC to the device. Another benefit of USB 3.0 is that you will be able to charge your device faster when it is connected to a PC or Mac. USB 3.0 is 80 percent faster than USB 2.0. To access the high-speed data transfer and charging, the Note III uses a USB 3.0 Micro B cable but you have the option to connect the device via the traditional microUSB cable as well.
Better Build Quality
Even though the front of the phablet has the traditional Samsung design, the back of the device has a leather finish giving it a premium feel. Samsung has also said that there will be a variety of back panel options for those that are not impressed with what’s available in the box.
