Proposed Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Lite specs are suitably unimpressive

Proposed Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Lite specs are suitably unimpressiveReleasing an army of frankly baffling smartphones is thought to have contributed to the downward spiral of HTC, but oddly the tactic seems to be paying off for the world’s number one mobile manufacturer, Samsung.

Throwing “Lite” on the end and downgrading the specs is a relatively new Samsung tactic, and the Galaxy Note 3 (left) looks set to get the crapisation treatment imminently. In the meantime, rumoured specs.

Citing a user agent profile for the SM-N750, thought to be the non-LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Lite, SamMobile relays a couple of seemingly confirmed specs.

For starters, how about a resolution of 720p? To be fair, even if the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Lite weighs in at 5.7in (two sizes are said to be in consideration), that’d yield a so-so PPI rating of 257.

Jelly Bean Android 4.3 is also apparently on board, though there’s always the chance the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Lite will be upgraded to KitKat Android 4.4 in time for launch. Maybe.

Other rumoured Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Lite specs include an 8MP camera (down from 13MP) and a LCD display (as opposed to AMOLED). Meh.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Lite launch is tipped to go down at Mobile World Congress 2014 next month. It’ll possibly be joined by the ultra-confusing Samsung Galaxy Grand Lite.

So basically, the Note 3 Lite is a Note 2 in a different body? Makes about as much sense as most of Samsung's strange derivative models.

Jan, Treab has a Note 3, IIRC.

Nice device if you need it big...

It won't be cheap, I bet it'll end up making more financial sense to just get a full blown Note 3. I can't see this being sub-£350 and you can get a real Note 3 for about £400 if you're patient and look around.

I don't really notice it anymore it works that well for me. Plus I got a blue tooth speaker which is nice

True, I guess... Lumia 1020 seemed very chunky coming from N9 and iPhone, but after a couple of days of using ONLY the 1020 it suddenly felt 'normal'. The Z1 was a different story.
It's not only big, it is big and uncomfortable imho. Maybe I'll try it again with a case that isn't quite as edgy and cold and slippery as the hardware.

Exactly the same here with my Note 2, other phones just seem like scaled down toys these days. I wouldn't choose to have a non-phablet device now. I feel the Note 2 will likely be replaced by a Note 4.

i kinda hope they keep that leatherly back on phones its actually quite nice when holding it. i still can't believe how useful it is having the s-pen though i generally use it quite a bit to write notes especially if im shopping around...

I used my S-Pen loads for about a month, maybe 6 weeks. After that the novelty wore off and now I haven't even taken it out of the phone for months, never mind used it.

These days my phone lives in a case for 99%+ of its time with me, so the material it's made of it kinda irrelevant. I tried to make this point when people went crazy for the HTC One's aluminium body. If you've got any sense, your £500 toy will be protected by a cheap, TPU case. Especially if you don't want the back of it to look, within a year, like piece of tin foil which has been a screwed up then flattened out.

If this ends up cheaper than the note 2, I can see the logic behind this - the note series has been a surprising success, but the note 3's rrp is over £600 isn't it?

But it is samesung, so they'll **** it up and it'll just be £500 instead.

My point entirely, I bet you'll be able to get the Note 2 for less than this, or a full-fat Note 3 for only slightly more, when it's released.
