The Galaxy Note III, Samsung's newest phablet, would go up against devices such as the Apple iPad Mini and the Google Nexus 7.
And although the South Korean company hasn't explicitly identified the device in question, all signs point to the official unveiling of the Galaxy Note III phablet. (The invites feature the phrase "note the date.")
The Galaxy Note III is not a secret. Rumors about the super-sized smart phone (or pint-sized tablet, if you prefer) have been percolating since this spring. According to the latest leaks, the Note III will be equipped with a 5.7-inch display, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, and the Android 4.3 mobile operating system; there's also word of support for LTE Advanced networks.
Why a phablet and not just another smart phone? Well, because despite their ungainly size, phablets remain beloved by consumers.
