Galaxy Note 3 – Malaysia Release Date, Malaysia Price

Galaxy Note 3 Specifications

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 information has been released to the public at the same time as the information about the Galaxy Gear. But it is more of an evolutionairy update then a revolutionary update. The new Galaxy Note 3 has a larger screen at 5.7 inches, but the phone is not noticeably different as Samsung reduced the size of the borders. It also comes with a new soft, textured back, that is leather like.

There is a new menu system that is specific to the Galaxy Note 3. It’s called Air Command. It allows you to hover the S Pen over the screen then press the button. A semi circle menu appears with options. Then each option is illuminated as you hover, and tapping will activate the command that you have chosen. There are a few extra uses, Action Memo, which lets you use the stylus to perform actions such as making a call and the S Finder which allows you to search the phone for any of your hand written notes or content.

This is also the first of the Galaxy Note series to get a 1920 x 1080 pixel HD screen. This improves the look of the screen noticably. And if you are with a few friends who also have the Note 3 you can use the new feature called Multi Vision. This lets multiple phones screens combine to form an even larger screen.

It has a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 or 1.9 GHz Exynos Octa CPU depending on the country you are in and has 3 GB of RAM. It weighs in at 168 Grams and comes in three colours. And would you believe one of those colours is pink!

The camera is 13 megapixel and comes with optical image stabilization for when you are recording HD video. As for storage it will come in two options, the 32GB version and the 64GB version.
