If the sales of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 last year are anything to go then the Note franchise is far from being dead. Samsung have made it quite clear that some people do prefer larger handsets to the smaller ones.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is the next in the line-up and Gizbot said that they would have the device in their top 10 as it would be a worthy successor to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
It has been rumoured that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is to have the features of the Samsung Galaxy S4.
Rumours about the Samsung Galaxy S4 say that the device will have a display that will be around 5 inches and it would be HD. It has also been said that the device would come with a 13 megapixel camera, with the latest Android installed, plus it might have a new processor.
Reports have also said that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 could have a bigger display. This may be a jump up from five plus to six plus. A six inch plus display would be OK, if it had a 1080p display.
Last year one of the highlights of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 was the user interface and the apps from Samsung, which were used with the S Pen. This year is has been said that the Samsung Galaxy S3 will have more advanced features so that it will be better than its predecessor and also to persuade owners of the previous versions to make the update.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 was revealed during last quarter and the predecessor will no doubt be coming around the same time. It is thought that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be launched first, with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 following close behind. This is thanks to the fact that the Samsung Galaxy S4 has the larger fan base, along with more rivals. These include HTC and Apple of course. Some reports have said that Samsung may reveal the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 by the middle of 2013. This would then drag in more buyers, which in turn would generate more revenue for Samsung, as early as possible.
James Kendrick of ZDNet said that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 was the best device for him, but he said that it would not be the ideal handset for everyone. So will the Samsung Galaxy S3 be better than its older brother and could it have the 1080p display?
