Samsung held the official press event for the announcement of the new Galaxy Note III phablet and the Galaxy Gear smartwatch. The Galaxy Note III will come in 3G and LTE varieties with the 3G version costing AED 2799 and the LTE version at AED 2999. The difference between the two besides the radios, is that the 3G version runs a 1.9 GHz Octa Core Processor (A15 1.9 GHz + A7 1.3 GHz) while the 4G runs on the 2.3 GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 800. We recommend the LTE version.
The Galaxy Gear will be priced at AED 1199 and at the moment, sold separately, although Samsung did mention that they might do a bundled deal later with the Galaxy Note 3. At the moment, the Galaxy Gear requires the Galaxy Note 3 to work with, however Samsung is bringing support to their other devices such as the Galaxy S4 within a month.
Both the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Gear should be available before the end of September across power retailers and Samsung stores.
