Samsung galaxy note 3 box aa

And here it is. A little over three weeks after Samsung lifted the veil on the Galaxy Note 3, the S Pen-equipped device is finally in our hands.

We got to play with the Note 3 at IFA for quite a while, but it can be hard to make an opinion on a device without using it in its natural habitat. Luckily, we now have a review unit on hand and all the time we need to learn its deepest secrets.

The first step, of course, is the unboxing. What’s inside that eco-friendly box? Our Joshua Vergara, back home after his world tour, is ready to show you.

There you have it – the first step in our coverage of the Note 3, which will include close looks at all the new features of the device and, of course, an in-depth review.

The Note 3 comes with either a Snapdragon 800 or an Exynos 5240 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display, a 3200 mAh battery, and a 13MP camera. On the software side, we have Android 4.3 with TouchWiz and a series of new S Pen features. The design also got a revamp and the new phone feels better in hand thanks to the textured back plate.

Interested in the Galaxy Note 3? The device just went on sale unlocked (though with some region-based restrictions) around the world, and will soon become available from retailers small and large.
