We haven’t heard much about Samsung’s lean follow-up to the Galaxy Note 3 since last month, but we might have our first look at some of the official specs of the device in the latest leak. As revealed by an XML file on Samsung’s website, the Galaxy Note 3 Lite (model number: SM-N750) will feature a 720p resolution display and will run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. The last report regarding the handset stated that Samsung would be looking to downgrade some of the components of the device, including the camera and the display, in order to reach a much lower price point. The Galaxy Note 3 Lite is expected to be unveiled at the annual Mobile World Congress trade show next month.

Given the ridiculous number of versions of the Galaxy S4 Samsung has released this year, it’s not surprising to learn that the company may be planning a similar barrage of gadget spam for its flagship Galaxy Note 3 phablet. One of SamMobile’s sources claims that Samsung will unveil a cheaper version of the Galaxy Note 3 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in 2014 that will feature “mid-range” specs and two different display size options of 5.49 inches and 5.7 inches. If Samsung’s past behavior is any indication, however, then the Galaxy Note 3 Lite will be only the start of the Galaxy Note 3 variations the company will release next year and we wouldn’t be surprised to learn that the company is planning to release the Galaxy Note 3 mini Active Spring 2014 Edition sometime in April.
