Here are the main changes over the Note 2:
- Bigger and brighter screen (5.7 inches).
- Faster Ram at 3GB.
- Faster processor at 2.3 GHz quad-core.
- Better camera at 13 megapixles.
- Higher resolution screen, full HD super AMOLED.
- Lighter and smaller, yet with a bigger screen
- Run two apps at the same time, side-by-side.
- New pink color, with 13 new back cover colors.
- Faux leather back.
- Lowest storage is now 32 GB instead of 16.
In addition to hardware changes, there are several software changes too. A hovering menu (Air-command) pops up when the pen is taken out, some tweeks to common phone apps, and better Samsung owned apps connectivity. All in all, it’s an improvement to an already great phone. I don’t know the price, but the phone comes out at the end of this month.
Here are links to some good short reviews from [knowyourmobile], [engadget], and [theverge]. And here’s the phone’s official viedo from Samsung.
