Samsung has just shown off the Galaxy Note 3, smartphone/tablet hybrid, on stage at their 'Unpacked' event in Berlin.The Note 3 comes with a wider (5.7inch) full HD Super AMOLED display, yet slimmer (8.3mm) and lighter (168g) hardware design, and more powerful and longer lasting (3,200mAh) battery. There's also a tasty 3GB of RAM.
It's also, equipped with a 13 megapixel rear camera with Smart Stabilization and high CRI LED flash. The Note 3, as rumoured, can also shoot Ultra HD video at up to 30 frames per second.
A click of the S Pen button while hovering over the screen introduces users to Air Command, a palette of five key features, cutting down on the need to toggle between screens.
A click of the S Pen button while hovering over the screen introduces users to Air CommandAction Memo allows users to handwrite a note, and automatically execute a function or convert that handwritten information into formatted content. Action Memo can instantly initiate a call, add to contacts, look up an address on a map, search the web, save a task to a to-do list, and more.
The Scrapbook features allows users to organise or track down content and information from various sources including the web, YouTube and Gallery in one place so that users can look back at collected content all at once. When consumers save content for future use, Scrapbook also collects source material or URLs allowing them to easily refer back to the original source and is achieved by simply drawing a circle around what you want to save.
The new Screen Write feature captures the full screen image of the current page on the device and allows users to write comments or additional information onto the captured image.
And when you get completely confused at the sheer array of functions and features, S Finder allows users to search for content on their device regardless of the type.
The Pen Window looked good and allows users to use the S Pen to be bring up a small application window of any size, anywhere on the screen.
It might just take you a while to learn how to use the thing but there's no doubt they've packed in a whole lot of features. It will be available later this month, according to Samsung.
