Samsung's Polish website has finally put to rest rumors of the Galaxy Note 3 Neo by officially unveiling the smartphone. Not only does the device come with all the features, not to mention warts, that we expected, it even comes in 3G and LTE models.
While LG has officially confirmed the existence of the G Pro 2, we have so far no idea what this upcoming smartphone will look like. That is, until now. A pair of photos has just been leaked that show what is supposedly the G Pro 2, revealing a mix of features from LG's own lineup as well as its chief rival.
Samsung’s Note 3 recently got the Android 4.4 treatment, and users are starting to report problems. The update on the handset seems to be fine, but some third party cases are now mysteriously not working properly. Samsung says they’re not to blame, but it rings hollow.
Samsung may be notorious for its obsession to plastic, but the Korean manufacturer knows very well how a splash of color can make things seem right. After launching other color options for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 in other markets, Samsung is finally bringing Rose Gold to the US, exclusively via Verizon.
While there is still no official announcement for the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo, what we have here might be the closest thing to a confirmation. A Belgian retailer has reportedly put the hybrid S Pen phablet up for pre-order, though that page is currently unavailable for customers to see.
With little room for argument, Samsung has a rather large percentage of the Android market share in North America. This includes both smartphones and tablets. Despite the fact that Samsung releases numerous models in both spaces, there are only a few devices responsible for majority of the usage. Or more specifically, a few models in the smartphone space and a few screen sizes in the tablet space.
It appears as if Samsung has begun rolling the Android 4.4.2 update to Galaxy Note 3 users a bit ahead of schedule. Of course, that doesn't mean every Galaxy Note 3 user will be seeing the update notification just yet. To that point, the update has began in Europe, specifically in Poland. And to further detail the availability, for now it seems the update is only available using Kies and for the quad-core Snapdragon variant.
Adding a bit of credence to its existence, photos of the rumored Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo, or Lite, have leaked out. And sitting beside the Galaxy Note 3 shows just how much it is the same as Samsung's current S Pen flagship and yet resembles its predecessors as well.
We're now getting a glimpse of what is called the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo, what is probably the rumored Galaxy Note 3 Lite. What is interesting in this most recent leak is that this smartphone actually more closely resembles the older Galaxy Note II.
Samsung is expected to release a Galaxy Note 3 Lite soon, with many pundits hoping for a Q1 2014 release. With the belief that we’ll see it at MWC — where we saw the Note 3 and Galaxy Gear come to light — new details have leaked out that note one important spec for the new variant to Samsung’s largest phone. If you’re expecting to be wowed, it’s probably best to go ahead and dial it back a bit.
