In addition to meaningful technological advancements, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 delivers a new premium look and feel. Expanding on the modern Samsung Galaxy design approach, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 adds a soft and textured-touch back cover and delicate stitching. It also features a serration pattern on the side of the device that evokes a connection to the timeless and enduring strengths of classic notebooks and planners. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be available in Jet Black, Classic White and Blush Pink. In order to encourage its customers to express their personality and taste, Samsung will also offer exchangeable back covers in dozens of additional colours at launch.
The new Galaxy Note 3 comes with enhanced privacy and security protection provided by Samsung KNOX. Users can activate Samsung KNOX with ease which allows them to run and store security-sensitive applications and data inside a protected execution environment called Container. The security inside the Container is strengthened by system-level protection of Samsung KNOX against malware and phishing attacks as well as hacking attempts on physical devices when devices are stolen or lost. For instance, important personal pictures or video can be stored in the Container with no worries for data leakage due to hacking. In addition, users may choose to store enterprise applications and data such as corporate email, contacts and calendar and allow the IT department to manage the container through EAS (Exchange ActiveSync Server). These features make the Galaxy Note 3 an ideal device for BYOD (Bring-Your-Own-Device to work)
Furthermore, the Galaxy Note 3 is equipped with an improved Find My Mobile feature that allows users to disable the phone when it is stolen or lost. With the enhanced user authentication, the technology prevents stolen mobile phones from being reset to factory settings, and allows users to remotely track or erase the data from their lost or stolen mobile phones.
In addition to bringing with it slightly new design, the S Pen also enables a number of new features on the phone. The S Health, Samsung Smart Scroll and Samsung Smart Pause are all present and accounted for. The biggest of those is the new Air Command functionality, which is a small pop-up window that’s brought up automatically by the S Pen and offers quick access to features like Action Memo (which can link memos to actions), a scrapbook, the S Finder search option, and the updated S Note, which can sync content with your PC and tablet through Evernote (side note: the Note 3 will come with a free 12 month subscription to Evernote Premium).
Not only that but their are some other freebies included with the Galaxy S4 to sweeten the deal.
The Galaxy Note 3 will be rolling out to 149 countries starting on 25th September and is priced at £649.
