Samsung is expected to announce the availability of the Galaxy Note 3 Neo, a slightly cheaper - and believe me, I mean slightly - version of the Galaxy Note 3 that mixes current-gen design with last-gen specs. Renders of the Galaxy Note 3 Neo were sent to Sam Mobile from a tipster claiming that the phone would soon be available for pre-order in some areas of Europe for 599 euros (US $811). The large price becomes questionable once someone considers that the Galaxy Note 3 Neo is expected to have:
- 5.5-inch 720p Super AMOLED display
- 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a microSD slot
- 3,100 mAh battery
- 8-megapixel camera
- Android 4.3 with S Pen and Touchwiz features
For an extra 100 euros, someone could get the standard Note 3 that includes a bigger screen with a more dense display, more RAM, more storage, a better camera, newer software, and more hope for accessories and future support thanks to its status as a top-tier device. I'm not sure what motivation Samsung has for creating this phone, other than it's Samsung and it can, but rumors say that the device will be on display at Mobile World Congress and up for orders. More rendered images showing the Note 3 Neo, which has the same design as the Note 3, are available at Sam Mobile.source: Sam Mobile
