After months of teasing, Samsung has at last gone official with the Galaxy Note 3 Neo. In fact, the Korean world leaders have announced two variants of the device, the second being the Note 3 Neo LTE+ (its name is self-explanatory). With the global availability starting in February, the Note 3 Neo LTE+ (LTE Advanced) reportedly makes use of Samsung's new hex-core Exynos SoC (2 x ARM Cortex A15 + 4 x ARM Cortex A7 cores), whereas the Note 3 Neo 3G variant is powered by an unknown quad-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz.
The rest of the device's specifications - 5.5-inch HD (1280 x 720) Super AMOLED display, 8 MP BSI rear camera, 2 MP front snapper, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB expandable storage, S Pen stylus, a 3,100 mAh battery, faux leather back and Android 4.4 KitKat - are identical. Thanks to the smaller screen size, the Note 3 Neo is just 148.5mm tall, and weighs 162.5g.
No word on pricing as of yet. Although everyone is hoping for an affordable price tag, we feel that this one will carry a huge premium.
