Samsung may be winning over almost everyone with their new flagship Galaxy S4 smartphone, but some consumers are already anticipating bigger and better things with the inevitable unveiling of the elusive Samsung Galaxy Note 3. While a release may still be some time away, Samsung has just confirmed an upcoming Galaxy themed event in London on June 20.
Samsung are officially calling their event, the Samsung Premiere 2013. Press invites are already going out, in preparation for a meeting at London’s Earl’s Court on June 20, at 7pm UK time. The company has added that Galaxy-based devices will be the focus, and also the new ATIV brand as well – which could be a big clue on a rugged Galaxy S4 that is on the way.
While we believe that we may see some new Galaxy-based tablets announced at the event, there’s no denying that the main highlight and speculation will be on whether it could be the moment the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is announced to the world. The successor to the successful Note 2 is thought to be coming with some hardware specs that lineup with the International version of the Galaxy S4.
One of these is going to be the eight-core Octa 5 Exynos processor. We know this, as the Galaxy Note 3 has seemingly already been spotted in some recent AnTuTu benchmark screenshots. These images in question show a device with a model number of GT-N7200, Android 4.3 as its OS and a clock speed of 1.6Ghz – which is also the same clock speed for the Exynos 5 Octa processor found inside the International Galaxy S4.
Having said that, some of you may be thinking that it is far too early to be even contemplating a Galaxy Note 3 announcement already, with the Galaxy S4 having only just launched in the US. We can always hope though, as Samsung has been known to surprise in the past.
Are you ready to see the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 yet or not?
