Samsung’s IFA 2014 Unpacked event going down September 3

Samsung’s IFA 2014 Unpacked event going down September 3

Berlin’s annual IFA conference opens its doors on September 5 this year, so the obvious question is: why in the hell would anyone wait till then to unveil stuff? Much more logical to get the ball rolling two days prior. Ahem.

Sony is supposedly holding an event on September 3, and not to be outdone, Samsung is following suit.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 launch date: September 3?

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 launch date: September 3?

Lewis Curdie  May. 27 at 14:00

The Samsung Galaxy Note, Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy Note 3 launched at IFA 2011, 2012 and 2013 respectively, so you’ll never guess when the Galaxy Note 4 is expected to touch down.

You guessed it, man: IFA 2014! It’s only a rumour at this stage, but feel free to mark “Samsung Galaxy Note 4 launch” under September 3 in your diary with a permanent marker.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 sales: 10 million in two months

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 sales: 10 million in two months

Despite initial fears that reaction to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 – as far as sales go – was a tad lukewarm, JK Shin was quick to yell that the phablet in fact shifted five million units in its first month.

That trend has continued, literally, with Samsung Galaxy Note 3 sales now said to stand at an impressive 10 million after two months.

Forty million Galaxy Notes shipped to date, but lukewarm reception for Note 3?

The original Samsung Galaxy Note proved surprisingly popular given what was at the time a fairly outrageous display size (5.3in), while the subsequent Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (5.5in) built on that success – and then some.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (5.7in) was unveiled at the beginning of the month at IFA in Berlin, but while the immediate response was almost unanimously positive, the good vibes aren’t necessarily translating into sales.

March’s Samsung Galaxy S4 launch event will go down in history as one of the worst things I’ve ever had to endure, and the Galaxy Note 3 Unpacked event – unsurprisingly – didn’t scrimp on cringe. “Your thoughts and actions become the story of your future”? Jason Bradbury? Puppets dancing to “Dreams” by Annie Lennox?

Anyway! We’re here to talk about a phone people, a phone, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is pretty much everything we’ve been led to believe over the past few months – and more. Is that a good thing? Why yes, I believe so.

It’s now just over 24 hours till the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 becomes a phablet-flavoured reality, but the rumour mill shows now sign of slowing down as we enter the eleventh hour.

As we await the official Samsung Galaxy Note 3 announcement, we’re being treated to screenshots of the About screen and an alleged Samsung Galaxy Note 3 benchmark.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 colours: three including pink?

Lewis Curdie  Aug. 23, 2013 at 12:00

Colour seems to be playing a big part in various manufacturers’ plans for the next generation. We’ve already been told to expect a gold – sorry, champagne – iPhone 5S, while the Sony Xperia Z1 will supposedly come in black, white and purple.

Yesterday we learned that the Samsung Galaxy Gear will come in no less than five colours, and today we’re hearing that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will boast three options.

The changing size of smartphones

The changing size of smartphones

At some point while sitting on the couch last night I found myself thinking: ‘Wouldn’t it be nice to see some sort of graph depicting the change in smartphone sizes over the years?’ and quickly set about creating the chart you see before you.

Specifically I looked at the flagships for Apple, Samsung (Galaxy S and Galaxy Note), LG, Motorola, HTC and Sony from 2010 to 2013, and the results are – dare I say – quite interesting.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date in September, Galaxy Gear in October?

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date in September, Galaxy Gear in October?

Lewis Curdie  Aug. 20, 2013 at 14:00

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch are both tipped for launch on September 4, at a high-profile two-days-before-IFA-actually-opens event.

Of course, launch and release are two very different things, so the question is: When is the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (and to a lesser extent the Samsung Galaxy Gear) being released? Answer: September and October respectively. Ish.

Full Samsung Galaxy Note 3 specs: ‘confirmed’

Earlier this week, I relayed a bunch of Samsung Galaxy Note 3 specs, with a small number of question marks surrounding the CPU, GPU and RAM on the two variants.

Well, those question marks have now been eliminated, leaving us with what appears to be complete Samsung Galaxy Note 3 spec sheets.
