Samsung Galaxy S III Neo with Android 4.4 KitKat makes official debut in Europe

While Samsung won’t be updating its non-LTE Galaxy S III to Android KitKat (because it has only 1GB of RAM), the company is now presenting a refreshed 3G-only Galaxy S III that runs the latest version of Android. Called Galaxy S III Neo (model number GT-I9301I), the new handset is listed at Samsung Germany’s website, and looks exactly like the model from 2012.

This Galaxy S III Neo is slightly different from the S3 Neo that was released in India a few months back: it doesn’t have dual SIM support, and comes with a quad-core 1.4GHz processor, instead of a 1.2GHz CPU like the Indian device. However, it does have 1.5GB of RAM.

The S III Neo doesn't seem to be available to buy yet, but we assume it will be released in the near future (in blue and white, from what we can see).

Samsung didn’t properly announce the Galaxy S III Neo, so we don’t know if the company is planning to launch it in other markets.

I really don't get Samsung?!
I go to an electronics store, and find many variations of Samsung smartphones and tablets, I dunno what are the differences between them, multiple versions of s3, s3, s3, notes, tables are countless, and everybody is carrying around either a Samsung or an iphone.
I want to stand out from the crowd, next next phone will be:
Oneplus one or
HTC M8 or
LG G3 or
Lumia or
LG g pad 8.3

I want to protest against samsung. Not because i didn't get kitkat because they couldn't even deliver a decent 4.3. Update. I am using Cm on my GS3 and I dropped my phone without the cover when I was holding it to my head. The phone doesn't vibrate anymore. I can't even give it to samsung as I don't want to unroot and go back to samsung software which is sluggish and laggy.

No it isn't, but I can use it as my daily driver with the help of a feature phone.

S3 is still the best midranger.

Without the dual sim it doesn't make much sense.

My S3 is serving me well. But my next phone is not gonna be Samsung, not even Android. I've been using Android is 2009. I think its time for me try something else. I think its time for me to try some live tiles and Cortana.
