We've already had one Unpacked event this year which saw the introduction of the Galaxy S4 and "Episode 2" (as Samsung is calling it) carries the tagline "Note the date" - wonder what it might be announcing?
You can expect the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to carry a hefty price tag, probably in line with the Galaxy S4 - making it more expensive than its Chinese rivals the ZTE Grand Memo and the Huawei Ascend Mate.
The Note 3 will probably set you back at least £550 (around $800/AU$770) give or take, plus there will be regional variances too.
In terms of when you can expect it to hit stores a report in Taiwan is suggesting the Galaxy Note 3 release date is set for September 27 - which would be three weeks after the launch event.
However, a later report from the Three network in the UK says that the Galaxy Note 3 release date will actually be September 24 - which would be even closer to the launch event.
Does the screen need to get bigger?
Update: the now revealed Note 3 has a slightly taller 5.7-inch display, with the same width as its predecessor.
The screen has sized up a bit, but the weight is actually down. The Note 3 tips the scales at 168g, compared the 183g of the Note 2. Due to sheer size it's still a two-handed device though.
Early reports pointed towards a whopping 6.3-inch display, which would see the handset dwarf the 6.1-inch Ascend Mate and 5.7-inch Grand Memo.
We thought Samsung may have let the cat out of the bag on its own website after listing a smartphone accessory compatible with screens from "4- to 6.3-inches", potentially hinting at a massive display bump for the Note 3 - although with the announcement of the Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Galaxy Mega 6.3 this is now less likely.
Screen size, then, remains a mystery but that's not the only quandary we have regarding the display on the Galaxy Note 3. Oh no, there are now reports suggesting it will be the first phone to sport a flexible OLED display.
Samsung did show off such a display at CES 2013 - although it wasn't part of a phone at the time and we reckon there's still some way to go before it's ready to hit our handsets, but it certainly gives us food for thought - especially now there are reports that Samsung is mulling three designs, one of which includes a flexible option.
With a big screen comes big possibilities. The new Galaxy Note 3's combination of large display and S Pen stylus are designed to make running multiple apps in windows easier and more intuitive.
Windowed apps have long been a part of Samsung's TouchWiz software, but the Note 3 has given it an overhaul. The S Pen can used to open the Air Command wheel to launch apps or write directly on the screen.
To keep all those windows manageable, you can set a window's size by drawing a box, then turn into the app you want. That way you can have two side by chats or browser windows, or any set of multiple apps you choose.
Galaxy Note 3 operating system conundrum
Update: Samsung has confirmed that the Note 3 will launch with Android 4.3.
We can be pretty sure that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will roll up running Google's Android platform, but which particular version that will be is not so black and white.
However if history has taught us anything it's that assuming is for fools - as we've seen numerous handsets launched with older versions of Android - but Key Lime Pie is pretty unlikely and there's no guarantee the Galaxy Note 3 will arrive with Android 4.3 on board.
Update: Samsung has released the all the dirty details on the Note 3's internals. Like the Galaxy S4, there will be two different version for the 4G LTE and 3G markets.
The LTE version of the Galaxy Note 3 will pack a quadcore 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor. In 3G markets it'll have a 1.9GHz Samsung Exynos octacore. Both versions will have a fat 3GB of RAM. That should make it a multi-tasking monster.
There's a 3200 mAh battery in there as well. Samsung is claiming that step up in cell size means 30% more video watching time, compared with the Note 2.
The big screen won't be the only feature Samsung will want to shout about though, as you can expect the Galaxy Note 3 to be packing some serious tech under the hood.

It could be another industry leading handset (the Note 2 was the most powerful smartphone when it launched) with reports suggesting it will follow in the footsteps of the Galaxy S4 with a ridiculous octa-core chip.
As this device will fall into Samsung's "Note" family you can expect the fabled S-Pen to make another appearance here as it looks to rub shoulders with the Galaxy Note 8.0 and Galaxy Note 10.1.
According to Android Geeks a software engineer has spilled the beans on the S Orb camera feature which is apparently destined to debut on the Galaxy Note 3, after reports earlier this year suggested it would arrive on the Galaxy S4.
The usually reliable SamMobile has also had its say on the Note 3, with its own "inside sources" claiming the handset will be the most powerful in the world with a octa-core processor, eight-core GPU, 3GB of RAM, 5.99-inch Full HD display and a 13MP rear camera.
There's been further leaks surrounding that 13MP camera, with news claiming the snapper will sport optical image stabilisation tech, which will apparently give traditional cameras a run for their money.
4K recordings would take up vast amounts of storage on the handset and there are very few devices the video can be properly enjoyed on at the moment.
The suggestion of 3GB of RAM was given another boost by a second source "confirming" the memory of the Note 3 and since then reports that Samsung has been ramping up production of 3GB RAM has added further fuel to the fire.
Apparently the Galaxy Note 3 will measure 8mm in thickness and weigh in at 183g, so slimmer than the Galaxy Note 2, but pretty much the same weight.
Update: Yup, it's plastic, but the back cover features faux-leather and stitching, for emphasis on a nice in-hand feeling.
Many were hoping the Samsung Galaxy S4 would see the Korean firm change its way when it came to chassis construction - ditching the plastic for a fancier metallic finish, but alas this wasn't the case.
The whole plastic vs metal debate isn't over though and now rumours are suggesting the Galaxy Note 3 could well sport a hard alloy case.
SamMobile sources reckon the HTC One has "worried" Samsung, leading the manufacturer to consider a new material for the Note 3.
We've also seen an image slip out online claiming to show the metallic body of the Galaxy Note 3 and a completely new design language for Samsung - although we're not overly convinced by this.
Those hoping Samsung will pull out some premium materials for the Galaxy Note 3 may have their dreams dashed as inside sources claim the handset will follow in the footsteps of the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S3 in terms of design.
