Recently, a Korean analyst confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 would be announced in September. However, he failed to mention the definite date.

Now, Android Geeks, after speaking to an insider, reports that the Galaxy Note 3 will be introduced in September, just before the 2013 IFA event in Berlin. The insider also claims that in August the South Korean mobile manufacturer will announce a special Samsung Unpacked event which will be held on 4 September. Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 3 at a press conference. Besides, the Samsung Unpacked event will be a part of the IFA 2013; a press event will be held on the first day of the trade fair.

The September launch of the Note 3 is said to be related to Apple's next-gen iPhone. Apple is likely to make an announcement about the next iPhone a few weeks after the IFA event. The new iPhone and the Note 3 will hit the market around the same time.

The Galaxy Note 3 has recently been rumoured to come in two screen variants depending on the market: one with IPS LCD panel and the other with Super AMOLED display. Besides, the device is expected to feature 5.7in screen but not 5.99in as previously thought.

The Galaxy Note 3 is expected to use Snapdragon 800 chip featuring a quad-core Krait 400 CPU clocked up to 2.3GHz and paired with new Adreno 330 graphics unit which reportedly delivers two times more performance for compute applications over the current Adreno 320.

Besides, the Note 3 is expected to have a 13 megapixel camera sensor with Optical Image Stabilisation (IOS) and shutter functions. It will run either on Android 4.2.2 or Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and feature the latest TouchWiz nature UX user interface with S Pen function.
