Everyone expected that Samsung would release a mid-range budget-friendly Galaxy Note 3 Neo phablet to the market, but the report of Korean media is turning out to be true as one of the German online store has already priced the smartphones in premium range.
Samsung Poland has unveiled both the Galaxy Note 3 Neo and Galaxy Note 3 Neo LTE on late January and the device was expected to reach the shelves in February month-end. However, Germany’s notebooksbilliger website has already listed the device for high price – €529.90 for 16GB Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo LTE ($715 after converting to USD) and €499 for 16GB 3G-only model ($675 in USD).
Normally, the price in United States will be around 20 percent lesser than that of the price in European countries, But the same website listed the original 32GB Galaxy Note 3 for around same price, while the original 16 GB Note 3 goes for €499 that is as same as the pre-order price of the Note 3 Neo 3G model. That means, the device will not be priced in U.S. as we expected.
For your information, Note 3 Neo is lower version of the original Galaxy Note 3. The Neo devices boasts a 5.5-inch 720p HD display and 8-megapixel camera with 1080p video recording support, while the original version comes with a slightly bigger 5.7-inch 1080p full HD display and a 13-megapixel camera with the 4K recording support. New handsets also features a new chipset – a 6-core processor that consist of two 1.7GHz cores and four 1.3GHz cores, while the Neo LTE+ model has a 1.6GHz quad-core processor.
Both the device comes with 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage with expandable micro SD card slot and a 2-megapixel front camera. Both the Galaxy Note 3 Neo and Neo LTE+ comes with Android 4.3 Jelly Beanpre-loaded along with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.
We have to hope for a better retail pricing for these new phablets by Samsung. What we are seeing in Germany could be the effect of luring in early adopters. Stay tuned, until we get you the official pricing info soon.
