After months of speculation, Samsung has finally pulled the wraps off its Galaxy Note 3 Neo models (3G and LTE+) in Poland.
The new Galaxy phablets are said to be the mid-range variants of the premium model Galaxy Note 3 which was launched in September last year. Apart from S-Pen stylus functionalities and faux leather stitching on the rear side, the devices' size and internal hardware have been stripped down.
Both Galaxy Note 3 Neo models (3G and LTE +) sport 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED screen and run on the Android v4.3 Jelly Bean OS backed by 2GB RAM with 16GB inbuilt memory (expandable up to 32GB). They also house an 8.0-megapixel main camera (with BSI sensor, Smart stabilizations, LED flash (high CRI), auto-focus, zero shutter lag, full HD video recording) and a 2.0-megapixel front camera with BSI sensor and Smart stabilizations.
Only key difference between these two models is that, 3G variant ships with a 1.6GHz quad-core CPU, whereas the 4G-LTE+ boasts Samsung's Hexa-core processor which houses a 1.7GHz dual-core Cortex A15 chipset and a 1.3GHz quad-core Cortex A7 chipset.
Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy Note 3 Neo models will made available across the world in February, but details regarding the price of the devices are still under wraps.
