We already know Samsung will launch a few slightly different Galaxy Note 3 phablets. There will be models powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 and those with Sammy’s own Exynos 5420 chip. In addition, a pair dual-SIM versions will be available in China. But that’s not all — the Korean company may also launch a “lite” model featuring an LCD screen and an 8-megapixel (rather than 13-megapixel) camera.
According to the Korean ETnews, this “entry-level” Note 3 will be out at some point in November, costing less than the flagship unit that has “all the right hardware.” The idea is not to dilute sales of the premium model and offer it only when everyone who wanted to buy the Note 3 already did so.
It’s worth adding this is Korean media we’re talking about and we’re not sure whether this model will ever make it to the West. Samsung has a special relation with its domestic market where the Galaxy S4 with Snapdragon 800 is already selling, while the rest of the world still can’t get one.
Waiting and seeing is pretty much all we can do at this stage. But we can ask you, our dear reader, whether you would be interested in a more affordable Note 3 that lacks a 13-megapixel camera and has a somewhat worse screen? Comments form is all yours…
