Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo gets leaked picture and benchmark treatment

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo gets leaked picture and benchmark treatmentWe’ve established that Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo specs are largely the same as those of the 18-month old Samsung Galaxy Note 2, though the handset supposedly has the bonus claim of being the world’s first hexa-core smartphone.

Over the weekend, a bunch of Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo pics appeared, alongside some fairly impressive benchmark results.

Credit here goes to SamMobile, which reiterates Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo specs. For those catching up, that means a 5.5in 720p display, 2GB of RAM, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front shooter, 16GB storage (with microSD), 3,100mAh battery and Jelly Bean Android 4.3.

As for the processor, we’re told it’s “Samsung’s own Exynos 5260 Hexa-Core SoC with Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP) capabilities”, with all six cores capable of firing simultaneously.

As such, it’s little surprise to see the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo performing well in benchmarks, surpassing the Samsung Galaxy S4, but predictably falling short of the beastly Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

Looking at the accompanying Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo pics (SamMobile has half a dozen in total), the notion of it being a marginally smaller Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is very much confirmed, including that faux leather on the rear.

We were initially a tad cynical about the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo, but we’re coming round to the idea. Maybe. Pricing will be crucial, of course.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo launch is tipped for MWC 2014, which gets underway at the end of February in Barcelona.

Unusual design, Samsung.... :p
Hahahaha Just kidding. As mentioned: given the right price, this isn't too bad. Though, I suspect it'll cost more than the now-discounted Note 2.

I'd guess it won't cost much less than a "real" Note 3, seeing as the full-fat Note 3 had a few months to depreciate now.

Or two milk bottles tops and a stick of gum over here.

Have the networks given up trying to sell the Nokia 800 and 900 over there or still mental pricing?

Hahaha The 800 and 900 are finally off the lists, but: Vf try to sell the 920 for the same price as the 925 (though, arguably the 920 has a few advantages....)

And the 620 is dearer than the 625?
