This week gave way to both hardware specifications and a leaked photo for a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo. Once rumored as a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 “Lite”, it’s the stripped down version of the popular big-screen experience.
Given the unconfirmed specs, it appears the Note 3 Neo is actually more akin to the Note 2. Nevertheless, it’s still a respectable device and should find a decent following when it arrives. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo reportedly features a 5.55-inch 720p Super AMOLED display, an 8-megapixel camera, and a 3100 mAh battery.

Powering the smartphone is a 1.7GHz dual + 1.3GHz quad-core (Hexa) processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. It will be interesting to see how this first of its kind processor performs as compared to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon series. According to SamMobile, it should fall somewhere in the area of a Snapdragon 600 CPU.
There’s no indication yet as to which markets are going to carry the Galaxy Note 3 Neo; it’s possible it won’t come anywhere near the United States.
Mobile World Congress takes place at the end of February where we should look for an Unpacked event or press announcement out of Samsung.
