Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Lite to be called Galaxy Note 3 Neo – sports hexa-core processor
According to a report, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Lite will be unveiled as the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo. The same report says that the phablet will sport a hexa-core (six cores) processor, leaked internal product positioning documents reveal.
GSMArena’s tipster is responsible for leaking the documents. The site reports, “The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo looks to be more of a refresh to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 rather than a dumbed-down version of the Note 3, as it features the Galaxy Note 2’s 5.55″ 720p Super AMOLED display, 8MP camera, and 3,100 mAh battery. Even the RAM and internal storage are the same at 2GB and 16GB, respectively.”
Speaking about the hexa-core processor (the first of its kind in the mobile world), the site says, “What is interesting, however, is the new 1.7GHz dual + 1.3GHz quad-core (Hexa) processor powering the Galaxy Note 3 Neo. We didn’t get much details throughout the document beyond a mere mention of the name and the clock speed of the two sets of cores. It’ll certainly be a step up from the 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos found on the Note 2, but the question is how will it compare to the Snapdragon 600 and 800 chipsets out there.”
Here are the leaked documents:
Furthermore, the documents did not mention whether Samsung used its Exynos chip or something else.
The document also doesn’t mention a release date. However, the device is likely to make an appearance at MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2014, which kicks off in Barcelona late next month.
