Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Lite seemingly confirmed to carry a 720p display

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Lite seemingly confirmed to carry a 720p display
Much about the supposed Lite version of the Galaxy Note 3 has been veiled in mystery, despite the fact that we've been hearing about it for a pretty long time now. As the name would suggest, the Lite model will be a stripped down Note 3 with less impressive specs, but a lower price, too. We're told that Samsung is readying an official announcement come February and the MWC2014, and while nothing can be labeled confirmed until then, we do have a few nuggets of intel already, some more reliable than others.

As with any device that goes through any kind of certification, a trail is left behind. In this case, we have the user agent profile (UAProf) of a device codenamed SM-N750 – a device most consider to be the non-LTE model of the upcoming Galaxy Note 3 Lite. According to the new information, the SM-N750 will sport a 720p display (likely LCD, not AMOLED), though we can't tell whether it'll keep the same spacious 5.7-inch display as the Note 3. The only other piece of information that one can gather is that at the time of the certification, the SM-N750 ran Android 4.3 Jelly Bean instead of Android 4.4 KitKat. Be that as it may, there's still plenty of time for this to change, so it's not out of the question that the upcoming phablet may launch with the latest flavor of Google's OS out of the box.

*$499 * Android 4.4 Kitkat out of the box. PA, please fix the "cannot edit comment after 240 seconds" thing.

Sounds realistic. My guess is Note 2 specs with Kitkat. Like we see in S4 Mini, they propably cut off some features, but it will most likely have S-Pen and most of Note 3 features.

Hey, SD400 doesn't use adreno 320, it's adreno 305. Besides a 2600 mAh is more relevant considering it only have 720p screen and less powerful hardware. USB 3.0 currently supported only by SD800.

Okay then, that would be 1.2 GHz quad core Snapdragon 400 processor, Adreno 305 GPU, USB 2.0. But even if a 2600 mAh battery is more relevant, just imagine that specs like this with a 3000 mAh battery in it, that would be groundbreaking.

I think quad core SD400 is too weak for upper-midrange device like this, especially quad core version of SD400 uses cortex A7 instead of Krait. If only samsung make a less powerful version of exynos 5410 it would be perfect.

there's no SD 400 with adreno 320

Oh I would wish a 1.7Ghz CPU and Adreno 320 GPU, just like Xperia SP has. I would die of happiness if I would see something like that. MSM8960T Snapdragon was the chip I guess.....Oh boy.

It's gotta be less than $599. The Note 3 out there now is already down to about $649....a $50 difference just isn't a good enough reason to buy the Note 3 Lite.

if this phablet is real, then it will ruin galaxy mega(or it's successor) sales.

I'm not sure. Mega is bigger, cheaper mid-ranger. This is between mid-range and high-end. It will affect sales of Mega, but I don't think it ruins them.

I'm sure the successor of galaxy mega(galaxy giga maybe) will have a better SoC than SD400, so I think it will have a comparable specs with GNote 3 lite. Besides it also have a 5.8 inch variant which is almost the same size with GNote 3.

I don't think Samsung cares as long as they get the sell. They just flood the market with various models hoping that you buy one. I agree with this practice up to a certain point. My Note 10.1 is still 2 software versions behind and my Note 3 hasn't received kitkat . And I don't think my Galaxy Tab 2 7" will make it past 4.1.

What kind of LCD used by Samsung? Is it IPS or PLS or just an ordinary TFT.

I think the specs would be Dual core 1.7GHz s4 pro 2.5GB ram/2GB ram 8MP camera Adreno 320 5.5"/5.7" 720p screen 16GB internal storage expandable 449$ price
