Samsung confirms Galaxy Note III launch event for September 4

While rumours surrounding Samsung's next generation Galaxy Note smartphones have been floating for a long time, Samsung has now officially sent invitations for an event scheduled on September 4 in Berlin, where it's
expected to finally unveil the large screen device.

The South Korean electronics major has gone a bit creative with the invitation and has sent it in a handwritten design that says, "Note the date 04.09.2013 Berlin".

The company calls it an 'Unpacked' event, which is scheduled to take place just ahead of the IFA show and it's likely to unveil its rumoured smart watch at the event, as well.

The company has been using the IFA trade show in Berlin to unveil its Galaxy Note phablet devices in the past. Last year, it unveiled the Galaxy Note II device at the event.

The official invite is inline with previous rumours. it was reported earlier that the South Korean giant was planning to unveil the Note III at an event scheduled for September 4 in Berlin.

The Galaxy Note III is likely to feature a 5.7-inch display and the latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS. Other leaked specifications suggest that the Samsung Galaxy Note III could sport a Super AMOLED panel similar to Samsung's other high-end devices with a resolution of 1080x1920 pixels. In terms of camera, Samsung's latest phablet is expected to sport a 13-megapixel rear shooter. It will reportedly be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 3GB of RAM

There have been reports about Samsung testing different screen sizes for the Note III but the company is rumoured to have finalised the 5.7-inch device, considering the market response to the Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Mega 6.3.

The company is also expected to use the event to unveil its wearable computing device, most likely a smart watch, giving it a head start over arch rival Apple, which is widely tipped to unveil its iWatch soon. Sony had also recently unveiled SmartWatch 2, a wearable companion for Android devices.
