Why can't they sell the same model everywhere?

1 - Avoid wastage on LTE modems in countries that have no LTE.
2 - Support in-house built SOC aka Exynos
In any case, but models are superb beasts, close to identical performance, no compromises....

Then why in some countries they will get both models?
7. Bootutu (Posts: 189; Member since: 11 Jul 2013)
Perhaps LTE in the pipeline very soon, or some carriers demand

qualom 800 more readily available then octo in countries were sales will be alot higher. You now there will be an octo + lte version in Korea like 2 months later right? lol

What can an Exynos do that an SD800 cannot do? So no point..
Or better yet, you'll get bragging rights if you have the Octa Core..
but still no point..
Same brand, same model etc.. etc... But i would prefer to have a blazing fast internet LTE, would be neat though. :-)

There is no LTE in Bosnia and Herzegovina, why are they selling device with LTE in Bosnia??

You are Lost. Go the HTC sad thread.

so basiclly if you want an octa-core version, you have to sacrifice LTE connectivity?
Hardware Performance vs connectivity speed = dilemma

If someone gave you the Qualcom equipped phone and told you it was Exynos, you would NEVER know the difference.
The real issue here is we are far too caught up in specs and bashing on one processor because it may be a fraction of a % slower. Truth is the Qualcom Note 3 will blow away the Note 2 in performance.. and I am PERFECTLY happy with how the Note 2 has performed.

Well if it is anything like the two versions of the s4 then there wont be. S600 was near identical performance as octacore version but had the added advantage of better battery life and lte. Id prefer the s800 version of the note3 please. Thankfully it is the one coming to my country

Awesome. Can't wait for this to arrive and destroy everything else as the GS4 did :)
Exynos 5 Octa and 3GB RAM, already there it's destined to be one hell of a beast. Also, I'm sure Samsung will NOT make stupid compromises like leaving out LED flash and fitting a battery smaller than 3200mAh.
We are in for a real treat here. :)

I’m not sure about “crush everything else” because it will be a better phone on 4th september.

Can someone explain why is Exynos going backwards with LTE implementation?
The Note 2 and some S3 variants have an Exynos and LTE modem!
Sorry Samsung Semiconductors, my money goes to snapdragon version
23. neutralguy (Posts: 1152; Member since: 30 Apr 2012)
Exactly my thought. I guess they wont go that way this time because there's a quad core processor with same performance with lte that can compare to exynos variant. Unlike before that qualcomm only has dual core snapdragon with lte, s3 us variants.
13. AfterShock (Posts: 2960; Member since: 02 Nov 2012)
These are just the variants known about,
SS probably has no less then another half dozen models of the Note III in the works.
We all know that's their MO.

Only available in USA on AT&T. No version for T-Mobile, Verizon or any other carriers. Is that even legal?
22. JDogg5281 (Posts: 60; Member since: 09 Aug 2012)
i seriously doubt they will not carry the Note 3 on at least the "Big 4". That would kill their sells if they just carried it on AT&T
24. darkkjedii (Posts: 12618; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Not gonna happen, but yes it's legal if they sign an exclusivity contract with them.

WHAT??? NO DENMARK??? AND WE HAVE LTE...BUT NO DENMARK?????
34. Tbm2xx (Posts: 5; Member since: 15 Aug 2013)
Danish: Danmark ligger under NEE (NORDIC COUNTRIES)
English: Denmark aren't placed as a seperate country but as a part of the NORDIC COUNTRIES (Codename: NEE)

What different will do with the 5240?
27. Topcat488 (Posts: 1173; Member since: 29 Sep 2012)
This is the reason that i extended my stay in Germany... I'll pick up that LTE version with the product code DBT unlocked... And then it's back to the USA. YeeeeeeeeAaaaaaah.

do you guys think they will make a true octa core processor for the note 3???? thats quite a deal breaker
