What you need to know
- A new report claims Samsung is working on a new Galaxy Note series device bearing model number SM-N770F.
- The model number suggests Samsung is developing a mid-range Galaxy Note series smartphone, similar to the Galaxy Note 3 Neo from 2014.
- It is tipped to feature 128GB internal storage.
The folks over at SamMobile have uncovered a new piece of information that reveals Samsung is currently working on a smartphone with model number SM-N770F. Going by the model number, they are speculating that it could perhaps be a more affordable Galaxy Note series smartphone.
If the information proves to be true, SM-N770F will be Samsung's second "affordable" Galaxy Note series device. The first mid-range Galaxy Note device was the Galaxy Note 3 Neo, which was launched in 2014 and had the model number SM-N750F.
The Galaxy Note 3 Neo came with a smaller display, a less powerful chipset, and a lower resolution primary camera compared to the flagship Galaxy Note 3. Unfortunately, the tech specs of the SM-N770F remain a complete mystery at this point. The SamMobile report only reveals that the device will have 128GB of built-in storage.
Since the Galaxy Note 10 starts at a steep $950, it certainly makes sense for Samsung to introduce a more affordable option for consumers who want a smartphone with the S Pen but are not willing to spend nearly $1,000 for it.
As per a rumor shared by reliable tipster Evan Blass earlier this month, Samsung is also planning to merge its Galaxy S and Note lines next year. Instead of the Galaxy S11, we may see a 'Galaxy One' series early next year with an integrated S Pen.
