The Samsung GALAXY Note 3 and GALAXY Gear was first unveiled at Times Square in New York on 4 September. Here’s the livecast of the global event.

“I have a Mac and an iPad, and I was seriously considering between the iPhone 5S and the Note 3. I thought it was easier to be in the same eco system with the 5S, but the Note 3 won me over with the new S Pen and its big screen, which is perfect for me when watching videos and playing games,” said James.

Customers who successfully pre-ordered collected their new GALAXY Note 3 today.

“Having used a Note II before this, I love the Android OS. I am so excited to get the Note 3 that I purposely switched my off day just to come here to collect the phone. Now I can go back and watch movies on this bigger screen with a higher resolution,” said Judaya.

The number of consumers who had registered their interest for the Note 3 was more than double that of the Samsung GALAXY Note II With LTE when the latter was launched in October 2012.

Ho Chan Yau, 51, was the first in the queue who braved the rain at M1 Paragon.

Successful registrants at the mobile operators and consumers who had placed a pre-order at the Samsung Experience Stores were able to redeem their GALAXY Note 3 Limited Edition Accessory Pack (worth $146) consisting of a desktop dock and extra battery kit, while stocks lasted.

“We are a family of Samsung handheld device users, and the time is just right for me to upgrade from my current smartphone to the GALAXY Note 3. My son advised me to be here as early as possible because he knew that the device is going to be really popular with all the new features, and he was right,” said Ho Chan Yau.
