The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo (or Lite, as we’ve been calling it) doesn’t sound like much worth getting excited about, essentially giving the Galaxy Note 2 a Galaxy Note 3-style makeover.
But wait! A leaked document suggests the arguably pointless Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo might actually have a cheeky little claim to fame, specifically: being the world’s first smartphone with a hexa-core processor. Of sorts.
Credit here goes to GSMArena, which has intercepted a bunch of “leaked internal product positioning documents” pertaining to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo.
On paper, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo sounds very much like the 2012 Samsung Galaxy Note 2, with specs including a 5.5in 720p display, 8MP rear camera, and 1.9MP front shooter. Sounds familiar, right?
Further Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo specs include a 3,100mAh battery, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB internal storage (with microSD compatibility). Yep, it's a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 alright.
Other than a handful of more advanced software features and a Note 3-style faux leather rear, the only notable difference on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo is the “1.7GHz Dual+1.3GHz Quad core (Hexa)” processor. It’d be a “1st in the Industry”.
Actually, the more I think about the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo, the more it kinda makes sense. Inevitably it’ll cost a fortune, however.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo launch is widely tipped for Mobile World Congress at the end of February.
