Forums Added for the Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition), Galaxy Gear, and Xperia Z1
Samsung recently unveiled three new and enticing devices aimed at making you simultaneously lighten your wallet a little, as well as pack your pocket, briefcase, and wrist with a little more technology. These are, of course, the Galaxy Note 3, the Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition), and the Galaxy Gear.
Samsung refreshed its popular Galaxy Note lineup with the Galaxy Note 3 phablet and the Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition). Both build upon their predecessors by adding more powerful specs, while retaining the critically acclaimed S Pen functionality. The Galaxy Note 3 ups the ante on its predecessor by raising the screen resolution to 1080p, upping the RAM to 3 GB, and packing in a quad-core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor. Similarly the Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) increases its screen resolution to 2560×1600, brings the RAM to 3 GB, and packs that same quad-core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon processor as its little brother. Samsung also introduced its Galaxy Gear smartwatch. The device, which connects to various Samsung mobile devices, features an 800 MHz processor, a 320×320 resolution display, and half a gig of RAM.
In today’s additions, we also have the Sony Xperia Z1. Codenamed Honami, the Z1 is a high-end device with a 5″ 1080p display, 2 GB of RAM, a quad-core 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, and a slim 8.5mm profile. More info and specs can be found on Sony’s official product page.
