During the past couple of weeks we’ve been hearing rumors of a new Samsung device called the Galaxy Note 3 Neo (Lite) which is said to be positioned right between the Note 2 and the Note 3. This device is about to be released in the market as a retailer from Belgium said that the pre-order page is about to go live soon and even provided some press shots.
Sammobile reports that the pre-order price is set at €599 which is rather high although less than the Note 3 launch price in Europe. Expect this price to go down a couple of weeks after its launch date.
The specs of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo was not included in the press shots however based on reliable sources we all know that it will be sporting a 5.5-inch 720p Super AMOLED display. It will have an 8MP rear camera and use a 3,100 mAh battery. It will also be running on Android 4.3 straight out of the box.
What’s probably unique about this device is that it will be using a hexa-processor system. It will have a 1.7GHz dual core processor and a 1.3GHz quad-core processor bringing the total number of cores to six. There’s also going to be 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. It is still uncertain if this device will use the Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP) technology which will enable it to use all six cores at once.
Other features of this device include S Pen features (Air Command, Direct pen input, Scrapbook, Screen Write, S Finder, Pen Window, S Note, Multi Window, Easy Clip).
In terms of design the Galaxy Note 3 Neo is quite similar to its older brother, the Galaxy Note 3. It even has the same faux leather removable back cover.
This model is expected to hit the market before the end of March and is expected to make an appearance at the upcoming MWC 2014 in Barcelona.
