The announcement also detailed that Toshiba would unveil 13.3-inch Ultrabook and a 55-inch QFHD resolution (3840×2160) glasses-free 3D TV.
Toshiba unveiled the Thrive tablet at last year's show, and also introduced a prototype glasses-free 3D TV.
The Korean electronics manufacturer is planning to launch the Galaxy Note in the US next year, having first introduced the 5.3-inch device at the IFA exhibition in Germany this September, prior to its launch a month later.
