Apple arch-enemy Samsung has sent out invitations to a press event on September 4 in Berlin, smack in the middle of IFA, a huge tech trade show rivaling CES, which takes place the same week. The timing is no coincidence though because the event occurs just six days before Apple's rumored iPhone/iPad presser on September 10.
The strangely named "Unpacked 2013 — Episode 2" event comes with an equally strange looking press invitation (above) that looks like a Genesis album cover from the 80s.
According to 9to5Google Sammy is likely to debut the Galaxy Note 3 at the event (note the less-than-subtle fourth square on the invite) as it has at IFA for two years running. The Note 3 is expected to come with multiple CPU options including an octo-core Exynos 5 Octa 5410/5420 or quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor running Android 4.3.
Unpacked 2013 Episode 2 will be live streamed on the Samsung YouTube channel and in New York's Time Square (take that Apple!)
Are you waiting for a Note 3 or the Galaxy Gear? Would you buy it ahead of the Apple event?
