After dishing out about a dozen slightly modified Galaxy S4 versions (Active, Zoom, LTE-A, Mini, Black Edition and so on and so forth), Samsung has apparently decided to give the Galaxy Note 3 a similar treatment.
You’re probably already familiar with the phablet’s toned down “Neo” variation, but what you most likely didn’t know is that particular model comes in three options.
One, packed just with 3G connectivity, is powered by a fairly modest quad-core 1.6 GHz Snapdragon 400 chip, the second adds 4G LTE speeds in the mix and ups the speed ante thanks to a unique hexa-core Exynos CPU, while the third takes things to an even superior level with a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor.
For the record, no, that doesn’t make it identical to the standard, non-Neo GNote 3. Very close, but not identical, as the S800 Note 3 Neo sports a smaller, lower-res 5.5-inch 720p display, 2 GB RAM (vs 3), an 8 MP rear-facing camera (vs 13), and 3,100 mAh battery (vs 3,200).
Also, the new Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out the box, no doubt with a 4.4 KitKat upgrade imminent. Priced at the equivalent of $735, it’s however available only in Korea and will probably stay exclusive to Sammy’s homeland, so the rest of the world should do its best to ignore it. Unless you enjoy frequent headaches, nausea and enduring confusion.
