GSM Arena has got hold of some internal documents which reveal the specs of the Note 3 Neo, as well as its positioning in Samsung’s portfolio. The new device will be more like a modern Galaxy Note II, rather than a dumbed-down Note 3. The most interesting fact about it is that it will come with a hexa-core processor (“industry’s first”) - so there are six cores, four clocked at 1.3GHz, and two more powerful 1.7GHz ones. It’s not clear if this is an Exynos SoC, although we assume it is.
At the moment, the Note 3 Neo seems to be running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with the new Magazine UX. But perhaps it will launch with 4.4 KitKat on board (hey, we can hope, right?). Other features: 5.55-inch AMOLED display with 720 x 1280 pixels, faux leather back, HSPA+ (42Mbps), Wi-Fi Direct, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, S Pen, Air View, Air Gesture, Air Command, 8MP rear camera, 1.9MP front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 3,100 mAh battery.
Pricing details have not been disclosed, but the Note 3 Neo will probably cost more than the Note II (about $460 unlocked) and less than the high-end Note 3 (about $620 unlocked).
We still don’t know when Samsung intends to officially unveil the Galaxy Note 3 Neo. An announcement at MWC in February seems likely, so let’s wait and see what happens.
