New Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo (Lite) has a hexa-core CPU. Full specs leaked
The rumored Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Lite is real, folks. But it appears that it will be called Galaxy Note 3 Neo - which likely means that Samsung has an entire upcoming line of “Neo” handsets, since we’re also expecting to see a Galaxy Grand Neo in the near future.

GSM Arena has got hold of some internal documents which reveal the specs of the Note 3 Neo, as well as its positioning in Samsung’s portfolio. The new device will be more like a modern Galaxy Note II, rather than a dumbed-down Note 3. The most interesting fact about it is that it will come with a hexa-core processor (“industry’s first”) - so there are six cores, four clocked at 1.3GHz, and two more powerful 1.7GHz ones. It’s not clear if this is an Exynos SoC, although we assume it is.

At the moment, the Note 3 Neo seems to be running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with the new Magazine UX. But perhaps it will launch with 4.4 KitKat on board (hey, we can hope, right?). Other features: 5.55-inch AMOLED display with 720 x 1280 pixels, faux leather back, HSPA+ (42Mbps), Wi-Fi Direct, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, S Pen, Air View, Air Gesture, Air Command, 8MP rear camera, 1.9MP front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 3,100 mAh battery.

Pricing details have not been disclosed, but the Note 3 Neo will probably cost more than the Note II (about $460 unlocked) and less than the high-end Note 3 (about $620 unlocked).

We still don’t know when Samsung intends to officially unveil the Galaxy Note 3 Neo. An announcement at MWC in February seems likely, so let’s wait and see what happens.

Samsung partner with Flipboard on this UI. So my guess is Flipboard may hold similar patent. Let see how this play out and its does affect me one bit about who holds a dog ass patent on whatever.

You have a magazine ui by flicking gesture from bottom part of the home screen to center. At the top right portion of the screen you will see a transparent column of call, message, etc buttons so you can use it as a phone without leaving that screen. My guess this magazine ui is an extension of this mode.

Documents with all technical specifications, but without device photo? Isn't that strange?

Same spec as the Note3, but should be a 720P.

Really Samsungi am starting to get confussed with the hundreds of different products that are/going to be released. I am fine with the just the S and NOTE series but why make a whole bunch of diffrent phones with almost the same exact specs and give it a new name to confuse people?

To confuse Apple. They can only sue per device. They try lumping a branch of phones together but that will great reduce the court income per device so the US court say no. Good for everyone except for Apple. Anyway Apple is cash rich and need to spend the money on something.
