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 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.
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.
Another carrier branded Galaxy Note II is getting an update. This time around the update is rolling out to AT&T users and the update as a whole will likely sound familiar as we recently saw it arriving for T-Mobile users. Basically, that is to say AT&T Galaxy Note II users are getting Android 4.3 which means support for the Galaxy Gear smartwatch.
According to a “leaked” document, the more recent Samsung devices may see Android 4.4 early next year. The Galaxy S4 and Note 3 are set to get the upgrade in January, while the Galaxy S3 and Note 2 may wait until April. It all sounds like good news, but it asks as many questions as it answers.
Last week we mentioned that the long-awaited Android 4.3 update to last year's Samsung Galaxy Note II has been spotted in Samsung service centers in India. Now it seems that a version of that firmware has been leaked out and is getting passed along over the Internet.
The wait might soon be over for owners of last year's Samsung Galaxy Note II. This latest leaked info places the much-awaited Android 4.3 update for the S Pen-powered phablet in the hands of Samsung's service centers, suggesting that an over-the-air rollout will be happening quite soon.
Samsung has just announced a long list of partners that will be offering services and promos to users of its ticket and coupon management Samsung Wallet app. Unfortunately, not only is it limited to Samsung devices, the service is even limited to a very small number of Samsung smartphones.
Manufacturers are no strangers to criticism and discontented customers, but it becomes a bigger issue when a government itself is the one pointing its fingers at you. It seems that Samsung has found that out the hard way and is now offering its apologies and peace offerings to its Chinese customers.
