It’s understandable when you consider the smartphones that need to be adapted to each region’s radio frequency, but when you take into consideration all of the various smartphones that have been released for the US alone, there is a huge amount of them.
A new smartphone by Samsung has been announced, and this time it is a variation of the Galaxy Note 3, making it the first phablet out of the series to have a slightly altered twin brother.
This new Note variant has been dubbed the Galaxy Note 3 Lite and it has been rumored to be under production right now, and will make it’s debut at MWC 2014 in February next year.
Like the name suggests, the Galaxy Note 3 Lite will apparently have less powerful hardware, and a more appealing price tag. Whilst details haven’t been given on what hardware specifications the Galaxy Note 3 Lite will actually have, one Korean tipster suggested the device will have a downgraded 8 megapixel camera.
Other than that, I have a feeling the device will have a dual core processor current generation processor, most likely the Snapdragon 400, and 1.5GB-2GB of RAM. The screen will most likely be cut down in quality, but the same dimensions will probably stay, along with the S-Pen functionality.
This is all speculation on my part, but I expect the hardware won’t be far off from this. As for pricing, I couldn’t say at this point, but hopefully it will be more appealing at other attempts by Samsung to get a worthwhile phablet into the mid and low-end markets.
