We have seen plenty of Galaxy Tab 3 related rumors up until this point. Most of them have been dealing with specs, however as of today it looks like the chatter has turned to when the tablet may be announced. In addition to the talk of the Galaxy Tab 3, there is also a brief mention of the Galaxy Note III and some talk of software updates regarding the Galaxy Tab and Galaxy Tab 2.

Diving right in with talk of the Galaxy Tab 3, rumor has it that Samsung will be making an announcement during IFA. This conference takes place in Berlin, but more to the point for those curious about the timing here, it is scheduled to begin on September 6. This is also when Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy Note III.

Shifting over to the older devices and the talk surrounding the Galaxy Tab and Galaxy Tab 2 deals with updates. Basically, it looks like the original Galaxy Tab is done and has received the final software update. Things are slightly better for the Galaxy Tab 2, which is said to be going up to Android 4.2.2. Though, it was said that is where the Galaxy Tab 2 updates will stop. No timeline was given as to when the Galaxy Tab 2 update is expected to arrive.

While the Galaxy Tab 3 rumors have covered quite a bit, the Galaxy Note III chatter hasn't been as frequent. We have seen mixed reports on the display size with some pointing towards a 5.9-inch display and some pointing towards a 6.3-inch display. Of course, some believe the Samsung Game Pad details confirmed the size of the Note III when it mentioned support for devices between 4-inches and 6.3-inches.

    it’s clear that SAMSUNG is NOT going to announce its TOP devices “during” ANY generic tech exhibition, especially NOTE3. Galaxy Tab 3 should have its own presentation as well.

    More sad for me is that Galaxy Note III is going (well, 90% chance) to look like Galaxy S4.

    Somebody should say SAMSUNG that it’s NOT what SAMSUNG deserves and has to spread across ALL its devices.

    Perhaps sammy should not even make a note 3 ( nor should they have made a gs4) and just focus on updates and all the features of the gs4 should have just gone to the gs3 and save the 4 and 3 for next year, but thats just my option. I don’t see any better than the note 2.
