After many months of leaks, we finally got to see the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 in all its glory. Samsung held events in both Berlin and New York City to celebrate with their typical pomp and circumstance. They say if you grab the device it will grab you back.
Thanks to the very thin bezel, the width of the Note 3 has a larger display (5.7-inches vs 5.5-inches) despite the phone being the same width as the Note II.
Although Samsung is known for giving you the best specs available, it’s always more about the features. The Note 3 sports an improved S Pen and the newest features revolve around a dot, circle, and box.
By hovering the S Pen over the screen until a dot appears, you can access Air Command by pressing the button on the S Pen. It’s a quick menu to such features like Action Note and Scrapbook. With Scrapbook, you can draw a circle around anything you want to save to your personal scrapbook. Next up is the Pen Window, which adds to Samsung’s Multi Window feature. Just draw a box on your display and you will be able to open certain apps from within this box for enhanced multitasking.
Hit the break for a look at these features in our hands on video from NYC.
