Earlier on this month, Samsung's plans to release a slightly cheaper, smaller and less-powerful Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo hit the blogosphere, and today, the Korean company has officially unveiled the device. Although it was initially thought that there would only be one tweaked Note 3 in the offing, there are actually two variants of the Neo, including the standard edition and a second, Neo LTE+ handset with 4G capabilities. So if you like the Galaxy Note 3 but don't need the large display, top-spec hardware or high-end price tag, then the Neo range might just take your fancy.
Samsung is the mobile industry's power releaser, and even though the Galaxy Note 3 has sold in excess of 10 million units since the September release, the Korean company is already planning a revised, cheaper model. According to a leaked snap, we can now see how the handset stands up against the real deal, and since, in the eyes of many, the Note 3's specs amount to overkill anyway, perhaps the Neo model will sell strongly once it eventually debuts.
Samsung already has a reputation for launching smartphones in a variety of different colors, and it's certainly not shy about milking its handsets for all its worth be re-launching them with new paint jobs after their initial release. That's why we're not surprised in the least to see Samsung's Argentinian arm announce two new colors for the Galaxy Note 3 smartphone.
It has been well documented that neither Samsung's Galaxy S4 nor its 'phablet' Note 3 have exactly surpassed expectations in terms of reception and sales figures, when compared to its direct rivals out in the market, of course. Many have complained that both series have become stale and in need of some rejuvenation, but as the Korean outfit prepares the S5 and Note 4 for release at some point next year, there's a little treat for those in ownership of the Galaxy Note 3. For current owners and those planning to purchase the larger-than-life handset, the company behind it is offering $50 of Play Store credit to load up on goodies, and although it does happen to be one of the priciest devices on the market, fifty bucks for apps, games, music and such is still a pretty decent offer.
The great thing about Google's Android, is that it's inherently hackable, and even those bits of exclusive software specific to one device invariably wind up dissected and ported through to other smartphones and tablets on the market. The Galaxy Note 3 may well be Samsung's latest premium handset, but the Galaxy S4 remains the flagship, and with so many more consumers in ownership of this summer's blockbuster, it's good to see work being done to bring the Note 3's exclusives over to the main event. The latest feature to make its way to the S4 is the camera app, and thanks to the work of the guys at XDA-Developers, installing it on your own handset is fairly painless. Details, as ever, can be found after the break.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3, the new king on the throne that was crowned just last month when the device became available worldwide, brings a lot of improvements and enhancements over the former champion, the Note 2, in terms of software and features. Hardware was different, too, agreed, but it was mainly the software improvements that set the two devices apart, or, to put more appropriately, would make you cough up dough to get your hands on Note 3 instead of Note 2.
The latest big Android release was definitely the Galaxy Note 3. Both big in the attention it drew and the sheer size of the device brought to market, Samsung's new phablet is proving just as popular as the two versions that came before it. No big shocks there, then.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 - a massive upgrade from last year’s Note 2 phablet - is barely a few weeks old as of now, but already, a different variant has surfaced, and one that might excite users quite a bit. In line with expectations and rumors, Samsung has unveiled a dual-SIM version of the Galaxy Note 3 for a select region of the world, starting with China.
One of the major arguments against large-displaying "phablet" devices, which take the features of a smartphone and combine them with a slate-like form factor, is that they are incredibly hard to function with just one hand. The new Samsung Galaxy Note 3, which packs a mammoth 5.7-inch display, is one such handset, but for those struggling to use their shiny new Note 3 without using both hands or getting some kind of repetitive strain injury on one, Samsung has thrown in a neat little feature that scales down the display.
