Samsung is rumoured to be preparing a launch for a lower-end variant of its flagship phablet, the Galaxy Note 3. The device, which may be called the Galaxy Note 3 Lite, is set to make its debut early next year, at the Mobile World Congress which is held in February.
Early reports prior to the Note 3’s launch indicate that Samsung had been testing different screen sizes for the Note 3. In addition, there were also rumours that Samsung were working on an “Active” variant for the phablet, not unlike the Galaxy S4 Active. SamMobile’s insider seems to have it on good authority that the Korean company will indeed be bringing a lower-end Galaxy Note to the market with the Note 3 Lite.
SamMobile further speculates that the phablet, whose model number will be SM-N7505 (the Note 3’s number is SM-N9000/9005), will be available sometime in February or March in black and white colourways. It is likely that the device may feature a 5.5-inch LCD panel and a smaller 8MP camera, while the S Pen should also be included – it is after all, a Galaxy Note.
