Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo

2.3GHz quad-core CPU for downsized Note 3 in Samsung's home market

Following launches in parts of Asia and Eastern Europe, Samsung's Galaxy Note 3 Neo has arrived in the company's home country of South Korea with slightly upgraded hardware. Whereas previous Note 3 Neo handsets have included lower-power quad or hexa-core processors, the Korean variant ships with a beefier 2.3GHz quad-core part — most likely a Snapdragon 800, based on the clock speed and the fact that it supports LTE-Advanced networks.

Aside from the upgraded CPU, Korea's Note 3 Neo featues the same 5.5-inch 720p HD SuperAMOLED display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, an 8-megapixel camera and 3100mAh battery. It's also running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and Samsung's last-gen TouchWiz UI, not the redesigned, flattened version found on the Galaxy S5. And you get all the major S Pen stylus features from the full-size Note 3, including direct pen input and easy clip. The device is priced at 790,000 won ($736) and available now.

If you don't mind 720p on a 5.5" screen, the battery should last longer than the 1080p Note 3.
But with 2 GB RAM, Touchwiz probably runs as slow as a 90 year old nursing home resident.

(laughing my ass off at that last sentence)

Same.

Well, my galaxy s3 with 1gb RAM runs well despite its age... Just saying...

Touchwiz has ballooned significantly since your S3, especially on Notes.
I have a Note 3 and trust me, that version of Touchwiz and 2 GB RAM will not be a good combination. There is a reason why Samsung puts 3 GB in the "real" Note 3.

How do u work that out I have the s4 and it runs 2G ram is fat from slow with touchwiz so don't know where u got the idea it would be slow.

Not sure I understand the point of this product. Maybe a 5" Note I could understand. But with only .2" difference, and a bump down is resolution, it makes little/no sense.

It is for people that can't save the extra money for a "real" Note 3.

Samsung is being Samsung, flooding the market at every possible price point.

The point is for Sammy to sell a bunch of phones. And like they do with most of their phones, I'm sure they will.

If it came to the states at that price point it would be obsolete.. Might as well spend a little more for the real note 3. However, if we did see this here and priced even in the low 500s It would do well.

A redesigned Galaxy Note 2 with newer internals that support LTE-A.

The price tag is not justified.

There are people that can afford a note 3... just because they don't spend extra money does not mean that can't have the same experience.
