  • Note 3 Neo gets priced dangerously close to the Note 3 at a German retailer

Note 3 Neo gets priced dangerously close to the Note 3 at a German retailer

Note 3 Neo gets priced dangerously close to the Note 3 at a German retailer

A German electronics e-tailer has already listed Samsung's mid-range phablet, the Galaxy Note 3 Neo, which we previewed last week, on its website. The pricing, however, jibes with Korean media reports before its unveiling, meaning that the rumors it will be priced "premium" might turn out true, after all.

The website lists the LTE version of the Note 3 Neo for EUR 529 ($713), and the 3G one for EUR 499 ($673). Granted, these pre-release prices are usually puffed up to gain advantage of early adopters, and in the US we typically get about 20% lower tags, but there is one disconcerting fact, and it's the price of the Note 3 at the same retailer. 

The flagship phablet is priced at EUR 515 for the 32 GB version there, which is actually a tad lower than the Note 3 Neo, that is inferior in every aspect, while the 16 GB Note 3 goes for EUR 499, as much as the 3G version of the Neo on preorder. Hopefully these listings won't be indicative for the final retail pricing of Samsung's new mid-range phablet, as then the value-for-money ratio will be totally skewed in the Note 3's favor.

1. None of them have leather back

2. Even if it did, that's the only reason you can think of ?! 13MP camera, Full HD, SD800 all for 30 more is a no brainer.

Being said that, these are pre-order prices and they go down quite a bit here after the product is on shelf especially when it comes to Samsung.

Yeah. And this is a dead end for this handset, I suppose. Why bother to buy a worse specced model at a higher price than the Note 3?

You know, I think the quad core variant uses Snapdragon 600 at 1.6 GHz.

follow Apple more like it , IPhone 5C brought sales for the iPhone 5S , Samsung hopes the same will happen with the Note 3 neo and the cheaper flagship Note 3

Now they will launch Note 3 neo lite, so that it could become more affordable for most people........ Or maybe they will again price Note 3 neo lite on par with Note 3, and then to increase sale they will launch another version Note 3 neo light minus........

As a Note 3 owner I feel good and bad about this move. Good that Samsung did not release a better model than what I have but bad that Samsung would even release this priced so close to a premium model. Why bother?

Well, Note 3 Neo is out of my list of new holding off phone. Bye. By the way anyone with Z1 here that when their phone is a tad wet the touch screen becomes crazy?

and this is what i was worried about. I bet they push the close price to clear out note 3 inventory.

You won't know what is the in depth strategy Samsung is trying to use to push the or sales.
IMHO, by marking the price of neo close to original note 3, brilliant Customers rather choose note 3 instead of buying neo.
my point is, Samsung use neo to help push the sales of note 3.
simply my own thought. Pls don't shot me if I'm wrong.
