Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear

 

Over the next week, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be released on all major US carriers. On its own, this would be a fairly important occasion — the Galaxy Note and Note 2 are two of the best-selling mobile devices ever, with thirty eight  million sold worldwide — but to momentum  over the edge, Samsung is also releasing the Galaxy Gear smartwatch at the same time. Read on for the Galaxy Note 3 hardware specs, release date, and a hands-on video of the Note 3 and Galaxy Gear smartwatch functioning in perfect synchronization.

 

The Galaxy Note 3 is mostly an iterative update, with a faintly larger screen (5.7 inches vs. 5.55), a much higher-res display (1920×1080 vs. 1280×720), a lot of software tweaks, and a nice new faux leather back that’s infinitely nicer than the slick plastic on the Note 2. Despite the larger screen, the Note 3 is actually thinner, narrower, and lighter (168 grams vs. 180) than its predecessor — but it’s still much too big to be securely held in one hand (unless you have gargantuan hands like me). The Note 3 even has a slightly larger battery (3,200 mAh) than the Note 2 (3,100 mAh). All in all, the Note 3 is a seriously impressive piece of hardware.
