As Expected, Lots of Apps Pre-Installed on the Galaxy Note 3 – But What New Features Do They Point Too?

September 3, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Last night, @Evleaks posted a screenshot of about 276 apk’s for the Galaxy Note 3 which is being announced tomorrow. As most of probably are thinking, that’s a lot of apk’s. Remember that each apk isn’t an app, although some are, others are Bluetooth, Fingerprint scanners, etc. You can see the screenshot down below.

So far we don’t know what the Galaxy Note 3 is going to look like, but we do have a pretty good idea. We’re expecting something similar to the Galaxy Note 2, although Sammobile has reported that from their inside source, the back of the Galaxy Note 3 is using a different material than the Galaxy S4 used. But I’m sure it’s still plastic, although I’d love to see some polycarbonate instead of the glossy plastic.

Some of the potential features we can gather from the leaked list of apk’s include some new S Pen features, like a new version of the S Pen development kit. Not to mention a fingerprint reader, since there is an apk that points to something with fingerprints. Which would work great with their Knox security suite they’ve got. We’re also looking at new remote control software, there will probably be an IR blaster inside the Note 3 which will probably have a newer version of WatchOn. Along with a Find My Galaxy App. Which is bound to be a hit with the younger crowd. But it could land Samsung in a lawsuit with Apple over the naming. We all know how Apple loves their names and patents them. They’ve had the Find my iPhone app for a few years, along with the Find my iPad and Find my iPod for all their different devices. It’s about time Samsung got around to doing something about that as well.

We’re just 24 hours away from the unveil tomorrow morning in Berlin. But we’ll definitely be seeing some more leaks coming out tonight and tomorrow before the event. Which is normal. So be sure to keep it locked to Android Headlines for all your Galaxy Note 3 needs!
