Rumor: Galaxy Note 3 shipping in September (32GB and 64GB memory versions only); Galaxy Gear to follow in October
Samsung’s next flagship smartphone and its first smartwatch are going to be introduced on September 4 at IFA 2013, where the company should announce release plans for both devices.
Sam Mobile says that one of its sources revealed that the Galaxy Note3 will start shipping in week 36 (September 2-8 ) and that the Galaxy Gear will follow it four weeks later, in week 40 (September 30 – October 6).
We don’t have actual launch dates for the two devices just yet, and it’s not known what countries will get them first. We expect the Galaxy Note 3 to launch almost simultaneously in various major markets, but we have no idea whether Samsung will have a similar policy when it comes to the Galaxy Gear.
The publication also says that depending on region, delays of a week or two are to be expected.
Interestingly, Sam Mobile seems to have confirmed the fact that the Galaxy Note 3 will not be available in a 16GB version, saying that the base model will have 32GB of memory, as previously hinted.
Even though Sam Mobile has been fairly accurate in the past about Samsung products, remember that nothing is confirmed at this time.
