Today, South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung Electronics has officially announced the upcoming availability of the Galaxy Note 3 Neo smartphone in its homeland market starting with March 17.The phone will be released in the country in Black and White color options and will sport a price tag of around 800,000 won ($750/€542), as SammyHub reports. Users will also enjoy a series of accessories for it, some of them discounted through Samsung’s online store, it seems.
Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 3 Neo a few weeks back, and it has started selling it in India this week. Interestingly though, the handset will sport a different processor when released in South Korea.
According to the phone maker, the device will pack a 2.3GHz quad-core processor inside, complemented by 2GB of RAM. Most probably, Samsung opted in for a Qualcomm CPU for the device.
The rest of smartphone’s specs will remain the same, including the 5.5-inch AMOLED screen that can deliver a 720p resolution, the 8-megapixel camera on the back, and the 3100mAh battery inside. Galaxy Note 3 Neo runs under the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system.
We got the chance to play with the phone for a bit during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, and we found it quite pleasant. It resembles a lot the Galaxy Note 3, despite being aimed at the mid-range market, and not a high-end device.
