The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was spotted in the Bluetooth Special Interest Group’s database.
The Bluetooth SIG is the organization that oversees the Bluetooth standard and makes sure that the thousands of devices using the technology remain compatible with each other. To do so, manufacturers using Bluetooth are required to register their products in a public database, which usually happens just before the device is made available to the public.
Seeing the Note 3 at BSIG is a confirmation that the device is on its way and that it will be available in stores sooner rather than later. Of course, everyone knows that Samsung will announce the stylus-equipped device on September 4, but this filing helps establish the veracity of a recent Sam Mobile report, which claimed that the Note 3 would be in the customers’ hands in September.
While there’s no hard rule, products are filed in the BSIG, as well as in the FCC database and at other regulatory bodies, a few weeks ahead of market availability.
There’s no new information in the filing itself, but if you’re itching to learn everything there is to know about the Note 3, we suggest you check out our comprehensive rumor roundup.
