5.5" Note 3 Neo and 6" LG G Pro 2 arriving next month, smaller Galaxy phablet to be priced 'premium'
Next month Samsung will announce a smaller, 5.5" version of the Note 3, dubbed Neo, claim "communication industry sources" from Korea, alongside the release of Galaxy Grand 2 to more markets and carriers.

The Grand 2 is a souped-up version of last year's successful Grand, now sporting a larger, 5.2" 720p display, an 8MP rear camera with LED flash, 1.9MP front-facing camera, quad-core 1.2 GHz processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of expandable internal memory. The handset is 8.9 mm thin, and includes a 2,600 mAh battery.

What's more interesting is the eventual release of a Note 3 Neo, that in its essence is a scaled-down version of the flagship Note 3. It is said to have a 5.5" HD screen, 2 GB of RAM, and a new hexacore Exynos processor, with two cores clocked at 1.7 GHz for the heavy lifting, and four clocked at 1.3 GHz for mundane tasks. Unfortunately, the smaller version of the Note 3 is unlikely to also be a budget version, claim the insiders:

Bummer, but the Neo might still appeal to people who have been on the fence for a Note 3 because of size and price, and needed just a little nudge in both aspects. 

LG is said to counter with its first flagship for the year, the LG G Pro 2, which will feature a 6" 1080p display, and the whopping 3 GB of RAM, being the company's first handset with such a large display panel, and with three gigs of RAM. It seems that the 2014 battle is starting very soon, and the Korean behemoths will be leading the kerfuffle.
