Keeping with the annual tradition, Samsung announced the new Galaxy Note 3 at Berlin’s IFA. The Galaxy Note back cover now features a unique faux leather and stitching.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 sports an enlarged 5.7 inch 1,080p Super AMOLED screen, 2.3 GHz quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 13 megapixel camera, video recording supports up to 4K (UHD), 32GB/64GB storage, a larger 3,200 mAh battery and lighter weight of 168g. It’s design is more squared-off compared to recent Samsung devices, plus a leather like back cover, making the Note 3 look more glamorous.
The S-Pen gets an interesting software update called Air Command. A radial menu pops up on-screen with a selection of main stylus based capabilities, which includes Action Memos, Pen Window, S Finder and Scrapbook. Action Memos turn handwritten scribbles into actionable items, like jotting down a phone number and being able to call directly from the note, or input address which would be located in Google Maps. S Finder app searches through the content of written notes, pcitures and even contacts. Samsung says it’s using optical character recognition to properly recognize the written notes, allowing them to be searchable, which seems to work pretty well.
Galaxy Note 3 also introduces the My Magazine app which could turn the stuff in the phone into magazine like content. Much alike from what you get from Flipboard with less set-up.
