The original Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was released this past Fall to some pretty positive reviews and has sold very well since its debut – most consumers complained the most about its high price, although, for what you get, one might argue that it is a bargain. If you have always wanted the the Galaxy Note 3, but wanted to pay less, the rumored and leaked, Galaxy Note 3 Neo, could be your answer. This is the same device that was previously called the Galaxy Note 3 Lite, but according to some leaked documents, the first of this month, it was revealed to be called the Galaxy Note 3 Neo. The name of the device, notwithstanding, the other mystery was when this new device would be officially announced or released. Well, according to an exclusive tipster working at a Belgian retailer, emailed SamMobile to let them know it is available for pre-order now! They also sent along some press release shots – yes, it looks like the Galaxy Note 3. The pre-order price is around US$812, which is quite a bit less than the original Galaxy Note 3 was over there – but let us see what you get for that price.
The specifications of the Galaxy Note 3 Neo are very similar to the original Galaxy Note 2 – 5.5-inch 720p Super AMOLED Display, 2GB RAM, 16GB of Internal Storage, a microSD slot for additional storage, 8MP Camera, 2.1MP Front Facing Camera (FFC), 3100mAh Battery, LTE connectivity, and Android 4.3. It is rumored to be running the new Hexa Core processor that can run all six cores at the same time (1.7GHz Dual + 1.3GHz quad-core processor).
All of the S-Pen features that make the Galaxy Note series different from other, so-called phablets, will be on board. You should find Air Command, Action Memo, Scrapbooker, Screen Write, S-Finder, Pen Window, Multi-Window, and a new Easy Clip and Direct Pen Input. We should see the new Galaxy Note 3 Neo at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona in late February, and hopefully, launch to multiple markets before the end of March.
