Samsung’s Mobile Press site recently released a picture reminding everyone about a simultaneous three-way event going on around the world on September 3rd, and they would like you to “Note” the date. Due to recent murmurings, there is reason to believe that the Galaxy Note 4 will be announced that day. Adding to the excitement is the Air Gestures logo on the announcement pictured above, which as we all know, is a standard feature on Note devices. Locations will be held in Berlin, Beijhing, and New York. The events will be streamed live on YouTube and will commence on 9:00 am.

In September, major OEMs will gather at IFA in Berlin to announce a number of new products and devices to the market.
Huawei has gotten things started in the marketing department, sending out invites for its event, and teasing a new device at the same time.
It would make sense that this new phone is the Ascend Mate 3 — we should see plenty of leaks of the device in the coming weeks.
Huawei is also set to release another Honor-branded smartphone in China, the Honor 6, which will have a 5-inch display with 720p resolution, a MediaTek MT6582 chipset, a 1.3GHz quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU and 1GB RAM. The rear camera is only 2MP, so this is pretty low-end.

The successor to Samsung’s phablet, the Note II, is only a few days away from an official announcement, but you won’t have to wait to see what the back of the device looks like. A picture of the Galaxy Note III has leaked online, and according to the tipster, the device has extremely narrow bezels.
The phone is rumored to have a 5.68-inch full HD super AMOLED display for developed markets and full HD LCD for developing markets, a Snapdragon 800 processor in 70-80% of devices while there will be an Exynos 5220 in 20-30% of devices, a 13 MP camera, 3 GB RAM, the option for 32/64 GB internal storage, Hifi Music Playback at 24bit/192kHz, a 3300-3420mAh battery, and Android 4.3.
We already know that the phone is going to be an absolute beast, so it’s just a matter of time before we can get our hands on it.
Hit the break for a more zoomed in photo of the device.
It’s all but officially confirmed that Samsung will be unveiling their brand new phablet, the Galaxy Note III in Berlin next month at IFA 2013. We have a good idea of the phone’s hardware specs, but we haven’t been able to figure out what version of Android the device will ship with. The LG G2 (which was announced on Wednesday) will be shipping with Android 4.2.2 and will upgrade eventually to 4.3— disappointing, but not a huge deal.
Good news today on the Samsung front though, as SamMobile tweeted out that the Note III will indeed come with 4.3 right out of the box. This gives the phone a head start over most other phones, and could also possibly mean that Samsung will be ahead of the curve for the impending release of Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie later this year.
The Galaxy Note III is shaping up to be an absolute beast so far— so that just leaves one question: Will you be grabbing at the LG G2 this year, or will you end up going with Samsung’s new flagship phablet, the Note III? Hit us up in the comments.
The folks over at SamMobile have received word that Samsung’s next high-end tablet could quite possibly feature a 12.2-inch display along with an ARM 11 processor and a screen resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, matching the Nexus 10. This could be part of an effort for Samsung to build devices with slimmer bezels and bigger, more powerful displays. We’ll see if Samsung gives any information on the upcoming device at IFA in Berlin.
Earlier today Sony announced several new devices during their IFA press conference, including the new Xperia Tablet S. The powerful new tablet is powered by a Tegra 3 CPU, preloaded with Android 4.0, and has plethora of available accessories. It will be available September 7th but Sony is accepting pre-orders starting today. We now have a quick hands on video of the Xperia Tablet S from the floor of the IFA event.
The international version of Sony’s Japanese Xperia GX has been suffering a crisis of identity, being known as the LT29i and also by the codename Hayabusa. But it has yet to get an official, consumer-friendly name. A leak from sources at Xperia Blog claims the phone has a name: the Sony Xperia TX. This would fit in with Sony’s new naming convention, which uses single and double letters to designate the relationship between high-end and mid-level phones. So the Xperia TX would clearly be a higher-end Xperia T.
It is said to sport a 4.6-inch HD reality 720p screen, a dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 1GB RAM, Android 4.0 ICS, a whopping 13MP camera with HDR video, a thin 7mm profile, and a nice size battery. This is certainly shaping up to be Sony’s latest flagship model. We’re expecting to see this phone, along with the Xperia T and Xperia Tablet at IFA in Berlin later this month.
Who’s waiting for this one?

Sony hasn’t really made a huge splash with their phones when compared to the likes of Samsung or HTC, but that may all change with the Xperia Mint, also known as the Xperia T. This beast sports a 1.5GHz dual-core S4 processor, 13 megapixel rear camera, and 720p front facing camera, among other high end specs.
Bulgarian site NixanBal has published a series of pictures of the T that really shows it off quite well. What we see here is an industrial design that, while not revolutionary or ultra-sleek, is still professional and business-minded.
Pictures after the break.
Adding credence to the earlier rumor, the Korean site Digital Daily is reporting that Samsung will be holding a Galaxy Note 2 Unpacked event August 30th, one day before the IFA expo in Berlin, Germany. The Galaxy Note 2 is expected to have a 13MP camera, be powered by a quad-core Exynos chipset, and run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on a 5.5-inch screen.
Last year Samsung announced the original Galaxy Note at IFA, so their choice in venue and timing would make perfect sense. The first Note defined the phablet space, where a device is not quite a phone or a tablet, but according to Samsung it’s the best of both. From what we’ve seen, the Note is a solid device, and seeing Jelly Bean on an updated version can only make it better.

One of the most bloodied battlefields in the on-going patent wars exists between Samsung Electronics and Apple, Inc. Presently there are as many as 23 lawsuits pending between the two companies all over the globe including the US, France, Japan and the much newsworthy Germany, where Samsung recently had to pull their Galaxy Tab 7.7 from the IFA in Berlin in what looked like a two-hit knockout coupled with the German court’s ruling with Apple on the ban of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1. Samsung however is clearly not out for the count; they’re striking back in Korea where they now seek a complete ban on the forthcoming iPhone 5.
This attack on Apple in Korea follows Samsung’s appeal against the German ruling and the filing of a countersuit against Apple in Australia over another similar court decision that led to the ban of Galaxy 10.1 sales. Their words appear to be just as fierce and confident as their actions; a senior Samsung executive, who spoke on a condition of anonymity said, “For as long as Apple does not drop mobile telecommunications functions, it would be impossible for it to sell its i-branded products without using our patents. We will stick to a strong stance against Apple during the lingering legal fights…We are taking different tactics since we are quite confident.’’
