Samsung is apparently prepping to launch a Galaxy Note 3 Developer Edition soon, which will land on Verizon Wireless' network.
The company has not made an official announcement with all bells and whistles, nor has it provided specific details yet regarding what exclusive features this model would feature.
At the same time this is not just a rumor, as the Developer Edition of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has popped up on the company's official website, sporting a "coming soon" label.
While there are no specific details available at this point, the Developer Edition of the phablet should come with an unlocked or at least unlockable bootloader so users can tweak around their device, install custom ROMs and so on.
Samsung unveiled its new Galaxy Note 3 phablet and Galaxy Gear smartwatch recently, at the IFA 2013 trade show in Berlin. The super-sized smartphone sports some notable improvements over its predecessor, bringing high-end specs and some neat Samsung-exclusive goodies, including an improved S Pen, a new Magazine user interface and the Samsung Knox security suite.
When it comes to specifications, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 sports a large 5.7-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with 1080p resolution. Moreover, the new Galaxy phablet is among the first to boast 4K video recording with its 13-megapixel primary camera.
Connectivity options include USB 3.0, IR LED, Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy (LE), GPS with GLONASS, NFC, MHL 2.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac. The Galaxy Note 3 comes with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage capacity, a powerful 3,200 mAh battery and the latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean on board.
The Galaxy Note 3 Developer Edition will launch on Verizon Wireless and blaze through the carrier's 4G network. In terms of pricing, the subsidized model costs $299.99 on a standard two-year contract, or $0 down with Verizon's Edge plan with $29.31 monthly payments. The Developer Edition model has no pricing yet, but it should retail for the full price of the handset, which is $699.99 on Verizon.
Aside from the fact that a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Developer Edition will hit Verizon Wireless' network soon, little else is known at this point. Stay tuned for more information as soon as Samsung makes an official announcement.
