Samsung's Galaxy Note III, the device hotly anticipated by existing Note fans and mobile watchers alike, is one step closer to its imminent reveal, recently passing Bluetooth SIG certification.

The certification listing from the Bluetooth Special Interest Group doesn't tell us much, except that the specific model certified is headed for NTT Docomo. From the reports existence, however, it's safe to assume (if you weren't already expecting an IFA reveal) that the device is coming relatively soon.

Users may recall that the Galaxy S4 Active was submitted in late April and debuted in June. This is certainly not a definitive yardstick for all product releases, but does provide some reference.

While we can't expect a Bluetooth certification to divulge any of the juicier details surrounding the as yet unannounced device, we shouldn't have to wait much longer. Until then, check out the report at the link below.
