Samsung is prepping for a big day Wednesday, when the Korean tech giant is expected to reveal two highly anticipated products in its bid for dominance in the consumer electronics world.
The company is staging another one of its major launch events, this time in Berlin ahead of a major technology trade show, IFA, and is widely expected to show off a new version of its Galaxy Note smartphone and the first glimpse of its Galaxy Gear smartwatch.
Samsung executive Lee Young-Hee gave some details about what the company is planning in an interview last month with the Korea Times. The new version of the Galaxy Note, the company’s third, will have “enhanced key features” and keep to a larger screen like its predecessors, he said. According to a Tuesday post from the tech blog Boy Genius Report, the Note is expected to have a 5.7-inch screen — larger than the current model’s 5.5-inch screen — as well as a 2.3 GHz processor, 3 GB of RAM and an eight-core Exynos Octa chipset, making it a very powerful phone indeed. The phone is expected to run Android 4.3, Jelly Bean.
