The press release announcing the Note 3 Neo reveals that the device will be launched globally starting February (just as expected), coming in three color versions: black, white and green. Only the Galaxy Note 3 Neo LTE+ will use that rumored hexa-core processor (Exynos?), which includes two A15 cores clocked at 1,7GHz, and four A7 cores clocked at 1,3GHz. The 3G model uses a quad-core 1.6GHz processor (unknown provenience).
Naturally, other than the slightly different connectivity options and different CPUs, the Note 3 Neo 3G and Note 3 Neo LTE+ are identical. Both run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean - which is a shame, since 4.4 KitKat is available since last year - offering 5.5 inch AMOLED displays with 720 x 1280 pixels, and Samsung’s well-known S Pen stylus. Other features include: WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, NFC, IR LED, 8MP BSI rear camera with LED flash, 2MP front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support. There’s a 3,100 mAh battery behind the handset’s faux leather back cover.
The new Note 3 Neo smartphones measure 148,4 x 77,4 x 8.6 mm and weigh 162.5 grams each. Samsung didn’t say how much they’d cost, but the LTE variant is certainly going to be more expensive than the 3G one.
So, here it is, Samsung’s fourth Galaxy Note handset is a downgrade from the previous model (Note 3). But that will hopefully make it affordable. Is anyone looking forward to buying it next month?
