Entry level Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with LCD screen is on the way?
The word around the water cooler is that Johnson in accounting put the goldfish in the drinking water it was Samsung's desire all along to offer a lower cost unit of the Galaxy Note 3 with an LCD display. The Korean based manufacturer wanted to delay its launch so as not to cannibalize sales of the higher priced Super AMOLED packin' version. As a result, the entry-level Galaxy Note 3 will be released in November.
Besides the different display, the entry-level model will also feature an 8MP snapper on back compared to the 13MP camera on the rear of the full-priced premium unit. There is no speculation yet as to how much this lower priced Galaxy Note 3 will cost.

More options, something good about Samsung. With Samsung its all about your choice and believe me its a good thing. Only idiots and ppl that knows nothing about business wil be irritated by this and you ask yourself why are they irritated, oh wait, fanboys? Maybe?

Why so pessimistic? Just cheer for Sammy and the value they bring. You look like you're defensive and there hasn't even been an attack.

I think they are following apple's strategy, i.e release cheaper version of the same product so as to sell the premium products at an even higher price point. Microsoft, was right with their ad,http://www.youtube.com/watch?v

copying apple? dont know if your trolling or not, but the mini versions are supposed to be the cheaper version of the same products, s3 and s4 mini.

Oh please, we are still using "Samsung is copying Apple" thing even today? Like really, thats so outdated already. Now Samsung cant do anything without ppl going on about how they are copying Apple.

There is nothing wrong with choices. Last I checked samsung always update their phones. High end or low, they always update it.

Dual sim is very popular in the mainland Chinese market. Apple will soon have one if they want a bigger market share of China smartphone market.

Galaxy Note 3 Active anyone? They did almost the exact same thing with the S4, the camera was lowered to 8 MP, and the screen changed to LCD

I don't mind LCD screens, but usually when Samsung puts them in Galaxy devices, as alternative or secondary means to their AMOLED variants, they don't go through the process of calibrating these screens the best or giving them the most brightness in the world. (The LCD on the S4 Active is roughly the same brightness output as that on the S4 regular's AMOLED)

Maybe this is the one Sprint is going to get since they haven't released any details on it yet and will be released later.
