Take this as a grain of sale, AndroidGeeks claims to have spoken to an insider, who said that Samsung would announce the Note III on September 4 - during one of its special Unpacked events that will take place in Berlin (as a pre-IFA 2013 event).
This info isn't verified yet. But it's not unusual for companies to announce new products one or two days before the official start of a major trade show (IFA kicks off on September 6).
A recent report was indicating that Samsung might use both Super AMOLED and IPS LCD displays for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the type of screen being market dependent, just like happens now with Samsung Galaxy S4′s processor. As far as the processor, it is speculated that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be underpinned by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC with quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 CPU and Adreno 320 GPU. If you'd ask me, there are likely to be two Galaxy Note 3 variants: one equipped with the Snapdragon 800 and another sporting Samsung's proprietary octo-core Exynos 5 Octa SoC clocked at 1.8 GHz (200 MHz higher than the one of the Galaxy S4).
The Galaxy Note 3 will probably come pre-loaded with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, but since the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean rumors are hinting towards July release date, the Galaxy Note 3 might actually leave the factory gates with the latest Android iteration on board.
