If the latest rumors are to be believed, looks like Samsung’s all set to rain on Apple’s parade. According to the latest we’ve heard, the Galaxy Note 3 is expected to release during the IFA consumer electronics event to be held in September, around the same time as the iPhone 5S, possibly to steal some of the latter’s thunder.

Now Apple’s taking its own sweet time in coming up with an iPhone 5S that could rival the Galaxy S4, but this is only going to make things harder for the company. Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 is a hugely anticipated device, given how successful its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 2, has been in the market.

The Galaxy Note 3 could have a 5.99-inch SAMOLED full HD display and is expected to be powered by Samsung’s very own 8-core Exynos 5 processor and 3 GB of RAM. In addition, the device could be fitted with a 13 MP rear camera and even have a flexible and unbreakable screen.

Can Apple’s iPhone 5S take on two formidable opponents from Samsung at the same time? For Apple’s sake, let’s hope so!
