The whole tech world is awaiting Galaxy S4 and the Korean manufacturer seems to be busy prepping another high-end handset - Galaxy Note 3. Since quite sometime, there have been a plethora of rumors regarding the successor of Galaxy Note 2, which has been making scorching sales in the global market.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has been popping up in rumors well-ahead of its presumed launch later this year. The device, which has been been rumored for the second half of 2013 would replace the Galaxy Note 2 which is currently on shelves.
According to a recent report from SamMobile, Samsung might use a LCD display from Sharp on its next generation phablet - Galaxy Note 3. Apparently, LED displays respond better to the S Pen stylus when compared to the AMOLED displays used in the other devices. A LCD display panel might not offer the same dynamic color range, deep blacks and vibrancy as an AMOLED panel, but it is close enough to that and is awaiting improvement.
Earlier rumors have also pointed that Galaxy Note 3 will have a 5.9 inch full HD 1920 x 1080 pixel display and run on Exynos 5 Octa processor to supply ample performance. Other than some of these rumored features, the Galaxy Note 3 remains a mystery, which will be untied by Samsung presumably at IFA 2013, which will be held sometime in Q3.
As the rumor has it, the incorporation of LCD display can improve the S Pen experience on Note 3. Hence, Galaxy Note 3 can be assumed to have deep integration and support to stylus. Further, as Galaxy Note 8.0, which was launched recently has advanced S Pen features, the same can be expected from the next generation phablet as well.
The new and improved S Pen comes with S Pen optimized applications including Pen Detection, Page Buddy and more. These applications would automatically launch once the S Pen is removed from the device. Further, it would be great if the phablet also has the WACOM technology, which allows the S Pen to control the physical menu/back buttons on the device.
Being the successor of Note 2, the phablet would definitely feature Air View, which will allow the users to hover over the screen to see previews of videos, emails, photos and appointments on SPlanner without opening the file or application in full.
