We really shouldn’t be surprised by this, given Samsung’s propensity for being outrageously prolific, coupled with the fact that there are four (arguably more) models/variants of the flagship Samsung Galaxy S4.
We’re hearing that there’ll be no less than four different versions of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 when it launches in a couple of months. Cripes.
That’s the word according to Korean-language ETNews, so there’s a slight chance something has been lost in translation (*sends out the Bat-Signal to socialjeebus*).
Seemingly, the story goes that the four Samsung Galaxy Note 3s will cover a range of price tiers. It’s not clear if they’ll all go on sale in all territories; the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 chose not to follow the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 to the UK, for example.
The premium Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will supposedly be built from “high-quality materials”, with a 13MP rear camera and shatterproof AMOLED display.
Moving down the ladder, we have a plastic Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with a regular AMOLED display, a similar chap with an LCD display, and finally an 8MP/LCD model.
On the inside, other Samsung Galaxy Note 3 specs will be the same regardless of the model, so that’s (probably) a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 3GB of RAM.
The display size, too (which could be anything from 5.7in to 6.3in), will be the same across all four Samsung Galaxy Note 3s.
In any case, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will almost certainly launch at IFA 2013 in Berlin in September.
