Executive vice president of Samsung Mobile Lee Young-hee has reportedly confirmed that pair of exciting products we’ve been hearing Samsung would introduce come September 4th during their IFA press conference. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was pretty obvious thanks to the original invitations issued by Samsung, but if you needed any further reassurance that the Samsung Galaxy Gear — an Android-powered smart watch — would be coming, the executive had no problem confirming that, as well.
We still don’t have many early details about the Galaxy Gear or the Note 3, though we do now learn that the former will not have a flexible display like previous mockups and patents have suggested. As for the latter, the latest rumors suggest this will rock the socks out of anyone who has fallen in love with the phablet category that has sprouted within the past couple of years.
To be specific, we’re apparently to expect a 5.68-inch 1080p display, 3GB of RAM, and either Samsung Exynos 5 Octa-Core processor or Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon 800. If the relationship between the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 are anything to go by, the Note 3 should be an even bigger deal than the Samsung Galaxy S4 (both figuratively and literally speaking). We’ll be looking to get our hands and eyes on both of these devices, so be sure to stay tuned to Phandroid as IFA kicks off in just over a week’s time.
