Given that Samsung released nine different versions of the Galaxy S4, it’s not surprising that the company is applying the same spamtastic formula to its popular Galaxy Note 3 phablet. GSMArena has unearthed some specifications for a new variation of the Note 3 called the Galaxy Note 3 Neo that will feature a 5.55-inch 720p Super AMOLED display, an 8-megapixel camera, a 3,100 mAh battery and 2GB of RAM… in other words, it’s a lot more like the year-and-a-half old Galaxy Note II than the Galaxy Note 3. There is one intriguing detail that separates the Note 3 Neo from the Note 2, however: It will apparently feature a “new 1.7GHz dual + 1.3GHz quad-core (Hexa) processor” that should give it a significant boost in computing power over the second Galaxy Note. In all likelihood Samsung will market this device as a low-cost alternative to the Galaxy Note 3.
