Samsung has detailed its new Galaxy Note 3. With a 5.7-inch 1080p AMOLED screen and support for a stylus, the device combines many of the benefits of a tablet with a smartphone.

The Galaxy Note 3 will be available in two versions, a model with a 2.3 GHz Quad-Core Processor and a model with a 1.9 GHz Octa Core Processor. All versions will run Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean), and come complete with a rear 13MP camera, a front 2MP camera, and 3GB of ram. In addition, the device is powered by a 3,200 mAh battery and will feature 32GB or 64GB of storage and a microSD slot.

According to Samsung's latest marketing push, the Galaxy Note 3's unique features will allow users to "tell the stories of their lives." This is made possible thanks to the new S Pen stylus and various Air Command features. With this mode enabled, users can now use the S Pen to hand write notes in order to initiate commands, takes notes on snapshots of the screen, make sketches, and literally draw windows in order to open new applications.

T-Mobile will start taking pre-orders for the 2.3 GHz Galaxy Note 3 on September 18 for an October 2 release. The smartphone will be available for $199 down plus 24 monthly payments of $21. In addition to T-Mobile, the device is also expected to hit AT&T on October 1, and Verizon, Sprint, and US Cellular in the coming weeks as well.
