“We introduced the original GALAXY Note in 2011 and launched a whole new smart device category. The undeniable success of the GALAXY Note strengthened our conviction that consumers want higher quality features for smart devices and they want those new features to make their lives better,” said Craige Fleischer, Director of Mobile Communications at Samsung Electronics SA.

The Note 3 comes with a wider 5.7inch full HD Super AMOLED display, is slimmer at 8.3mm and lighter at 168g hardware design, and more powerful and longer lasting (3,200mAh) battery than the Note 2.
