In efforts to compete with Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) is boosting their product offerings with the upcoming Galaxy Note 3. Although the South Korean tech giant has been focusing on the production of smartphones, tablet computers, and phablet computers, the top competitor continues to take the minimalist approach. As a result, Apple fans are still patiently waiting the arrival of the iPhone 5S and iPad 5.
For now, courtroom litigations between the tech giants has managed to slow down some. But the war is far from over. Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) already unveiled their Galaxy S4 and, not surprisingly, it proved to be a success. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is expected to release the iPhone 5S in late summer or early fall. Samsung is now gearing up to release the Galaxy Note 3 around the same time.
Samsung Confirms Galaxy Note 3

The company is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 3 in Sept. at the IFA in Berlin.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Variants
According to Android Beat, there may be four variations of the Note III phablet. The article goes further into detail to explain, “Remember how yesterday I said there would be four Galaxy Note 3 variants? Well, I found the SM-N900A, SM-N900P, SM-N900T, and SM-N900V. Could these three variants simply be carrier specific versions of the Note III that have specific radios? Possibly, but that’s not how Samsung usually does things. Take the Galaxy S4 for instance. We all know it as the GT-i9505 (Qualcomm) or GT-i9500 (Exynos). The Chinese variant is called the GT-i9502; it has its own model number.”
The upcoming Galaxy Note 3 should create even more interest in the Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) brand and take some of that interest away from Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL).
