The new Samsung GALAXY Note3 is now furnished with innovative features where users can enjoy captivating viewing experience on the larger screen. It also comes with an enhanced S Pen and multitasking features to savor your day to day work tasks into something effortless and enjoyable.

With the latest GALAXY Note3, you will be able to enjoy a delightful mobile experience that brings passion to life. As we are always dedicated to bringing the latest technology and innovation to our consumers, you will finally be able to enjoy an enhanced S Pen feature that helps you tell your story through this dynamic experience.” Yiyin Zhao, Director of Telecom Business, Samsung Electronics Hong Kong Limited said.


Yiyin added, “We have recently just launched our Design Your Life global campaign to show consumers how you could live life in the moment while staying connected. And the GALAXY Note3 is a testament to how committed we are in enabling our users enjoy higher quality features on their smart devices to make their lives better.”



Stitching your artistic taste through GALAXY Note3

Samsung GALAXY Note3 delivers a premium look and feel that distinguishes itself from just an ordinary phone. Playing on the modern approach of the GALAXY series, Samsung GALAXY Note3 offers consumers a brand new design by adding a textured-touch back cover, along with delicate stitching on the side to fine- tune its details. The design is also topped up with a serration pattern on the side of the device that adds a timeless and enduring tone to the GALAXY Note3. It will come in black and white, allowing users of different personality and taste to choose a color that best reflects their persona. Users can also purchase exchangeable back covers in dozens of additional colors.



A click on the S Pen turns your digital lifestyle up a notch

The new S Pen brings users back into time when note-taking was such an integral part of lives. However, a classic touch with a modern twist allows our contemporary consumers to now accomplish daily tasks with just one click. The newly transformed S Pen can be fully utilized with its impeccable functional design with essential input and control features. Users can maneuver around the device with the S Pen and conduct routine tasks at a faster and more enjoyable speed.


One simple click on the S Pen button will turn users’ digital lifestyle up a notch with the brand new Air Command function. With a single click, a palette of five powerful features will allow users to work effortlessly between screens, menus and applications without having to toggle between screens and look up different menus. Hassle free key functions include:


  • Action Memo allows users to handwrite a note, and automatically execute a function or convert handwritten information into formatted content. Action Memo can instantly initiate a call, add to contacts, look up an address on a map, search on the internet, save a task to a to-do list and more.

  • Scrapbook enables users to organize or track content and information from various sources including the internet, YouTube and Gallery in one single place so users can easily go back at collected content all at once. When users save content for future use, Scrapbook also collects source material or URLs allowing them to easily refer back to the original source.

  • S Finder allows users to expansively search for content on their device regardless of file type. By putting in keywords or filters such as date, location, and content type, users can search related documents, events, communication threads, and even the Help page – all in one place. In addition, users can also search for hand-written content in their Notes and memo applications, as well as symbols and formulas.

  • Pen Window allows users to use the S Pen not only for sketching or writing notes, but now also for opening a small application window for a true multitasking experience. Simply by drawing a window of any size, anywhere on the screen, users can easily and quickly open another application window such as YouTube, calculator or browser without stirring away from their current activity on the screen.

  • The Screen Write feature captures the full screen image of the current page on the device and allows users to write comments or additional information onto the captured image.


In addition to the Air Command functions, users can now enjoy Enhanced Easy Clip to neatly crop out exactly what is needed by roughly drawing around it. Easily remove the image background from any screen by artistically cropping an image with Easy Clip. Users will no longer have to deal with clumsy image editing and awkward images.

Work made easy with multitasking capabilities

The GALAXY Note3 is now packed with enhanced multitasking capabilities where users can make full use of the larger screen. Users can now enhance their efficiency on GALAXY Note3 with the new Multi Window function. Instead of having to open and close new windows and pages, you can now toggle seamlessly between applications and pages across programs. Users can also run a single application on two windows at the same time, such as sending an instant message through ChatON while reading a message from another friend on the same program.


Additionally, multitasking enables users the following:

  • Drag and Drop mode within the new Multi Window allows users to easily drag and drop content such as a text or image from one window to the other in an instant.

  • Pen Window from Air Command further enhances multitasking experience by allowing consumers to draw a window on the screen and launching popular applications while continuing current tasks on the GALAXY Note3.
