If you love technology and learning about the latest smart phones, you will be thrilled to hear that the release date for the new mega-sized Samsung Galaxy Note III has been announced Wendesday during an event in Berlin, Germany.

The phone will be released September 25 in 149 countries around the world and will be powered by Android 4.3.

Samsung has been gaining some traction in the smart phone market with their devices that feature larger screens and their newest “phablet” will improve on the screen size of the Galaxy Note II without making the device even wider. The phones screen will measure 5.7 inches diagonally.

More from the Huffington Post:

The so-called phablet also has a longer-lasting battery, a lighter body, and a 13 megapixel camera. 3GB of RAM will make it run faster and smoother.

The back of the phone is covered in leather-like finish, meant to evoke the look and feel of a real notebook, and comes in three colors: black, white, and “blush pink.” There are also leather flip wallet covers that come in a wide range of seasonal colors.

Samsung also unveiled a new S Pen, an improved stylus made specially for the Note 3.

If the Galaxy Note III success can match or surpass that of the Galaxy Note II, Samsung will have another hit on their hands.

It is unlikely that the device can challenge the sales numbers of the Galaxy S4, but expect some big numbers whenever the new device hits the market.
