Samsung has taken the wraps off its Galaxy Note 3 Neo, yet another large-screen smartphone, but less powerful with the S Pen and various features, inherited from the Note 3.

If you’re not offended with a plenty of over-sized smartphones – known as phablets, Samsung has thrown the Galaxy Note 3 Neo. The younger brother to the original Note 3 sees a decay in hardware specs to be a specifically mid-range device.

The Galaxy Note 3 Neo will be available in stores by the end of February in two versions: 3G and 4G LTE+. The pricing details are yet to be announced.

The phone features a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels at 267 ppi pixel density, and underneath Android 4.3 Jelly Bean is pushed by a dual-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz (in 3G variant) and the first hexa-core processor (Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex A7 & dual-core 1.7 GHz Cortex A15) in 4G LTE+ version for ultra-fast connectivity.

Other features include 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage expandable via micro SD slot, a 2-megapixel front-facing sensor and an 8-megapixel rear sensor with LED flash, and a 3100 mAh battery. In connectivity options, it has support for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 LE alongside traditional sensors.


Like the Note 3, it comes with the S Pen and you can enjoy the exclusive features of TouchWiz interface such as Air Command, S Notes and Multi-Window. It has also pledged support for the Galaxy Gear.

The Neo phablet is indeed an ideal for those who wish to experience a very similar richness that of afforded by the Galaxy Note 3, but don’t have high budget required to buy the flagship model.

According to rumors, it should be retailed about $549. Besides, the 3G frequency ranges supported by the Galaxy Note 3 Neo suggest it’s aimed at some European markets, and maybe even Asia.
