Ever since Samsung released the high-end Galaxy Note 3, talks about a Galaxy Note 3 ‘Lite’ have been in the highlights.
However, nothing official has been disclosed by Samsung for the time being. As we have already seen in the past that the Korean tech giant has pushed out multiple products of its flagship device before also, and with the year 2014 expected to start an era of phablets, according to a report by GSM Arena, we could see Samsung unveil new products, including the Galaxy Note 3 ‘Lite’ at the Mobile World Congress next month in Barcelona.
GSM Arena also revealed an alleged specification list which it discovered among some internal documents related to product positioning.
The document suggests that the phablet will be called the Note 3 Neo. The specifications depict that the upcoming device will be more of a Note 2 than a Note 3 as it will include the former’s 5.55 inches 720p Super AMOLED display, 2 GB RAM, an 8 megapixel camera, 16GB storage and a 3100 mAh battery.
The Note 3 on the other hand as a larger display of 5.7 inches, a 13 megapixel camera, 3 GB RAM, a 3200 mAh battery and 32 GB storage.
But there are a few differences also as compared from the Note 2 which includes a more powerful processor as compared to the 1.6GHz quad core Exynos in the Note 2.
The Neo will feature a 1.7GHz dual and 1.3GHz quad-core, i.e., a hexa core processor. Apparently the device will be slimmer than the Note 2 as well.
Samsung also plans to include the Note 3’s faux-leather back to the Neo, and even the stitched edges would be included.
Finally, the specs also reveal that the Note 3’s smart features that were also included in the Galaxy S4 could also be part of the Neo.
This budget priced phablet will be aimed at emerging markets and is will likely be a success if the mentioned specifications are true.
