Releasing 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.
