Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note 2

The Galaxy Note 3 will reportedly launch on September 27 in Taiwan, with September 16 said to be the pre-order date for the upcoming flagship smartphone in the region.

The news comes from Taiwanese site ePrice, although it’s yet to be officially confirmed by Samsung. The site further said that these dates may be slightly changed, although it doesn’t expect significant modifications.

Assuming the launch date for Taiwan is real, we would expect to see the handset hit other markets around the same time, as Samsung usually goes for almost simultaneous launches in major markets.

In the past weeks, we heard that Samsung may be interested in launching the new smartphone as soon as possible after the September 4 announcement, with reports saying that the handset will start selling in various markets by the end of September.

That said, the Galaxy Note 3 rumors are still popping up day after day – we have an updated Galaxy Note 3 rumor roundup for you – with just about a week left until the company officially announces the device at its pre-IFA 2013 media event, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see more launch-related Galaxy Note 3 reports appear before the handset becomes official.

Are you buying the Galaxy Note 3 first chance you get?
