While Verizon is gearing up to launch a Rose Gold White version of the Galaxy Note 3, it looks like Samsung is prepping another variant of its newest phablet. Recent leaks have shown that the company is working on a device known as the Galaxy Note 3 Neo, which is expected to cram many of the Galaxy Note II’s specs into the body of a Galaxy Note 3 and then mix in many of the Galaxy Note 3′s software features for good measure. The Note 3 Neo first popped up on our radar earlier this month thanks to a leaked spec sheet that compared all three handsets, and now it’s back in a batch of leaked product images that give us our best look at the unannounced handset yet.
A tipster that claims to work for a Belgian retailer has shared a set of Galaxy Note 3 Neo press images with SamMobile, adding that the device will be going up for pre-order in Belgium in the near future at a price of â‚¬599 ($812 USD). The renders show a device that looks awfully similar to the Galaxy Note 3, complete with rounded edges, a faux leather-clad backside and even the same default wallpaper.
Rumored to feature a 5.5-inch 720p Super AMOLED display, 8-megapixel rear and 1.9-megapixel front cameras, Air View and Advanced Multi-Window, the Galaxy Note 3 Neo seems to be a bit of a mashup of the Galaxy Note II and Galaxy Note 3. The device is reportedly powered by a hexa-core processor with 1.7GHz dual-core and 1.3GHz quad-core chips and will reportedly begin landing on store shelves by the end of March, meaning that an official debut at MWC in late February could be in the cards.
