With the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date quickly approaching it’s easy to forget that, at one point, rumors and insiders were claiming that Sammy’s phablet will arrive in a flurry of hardware configurations, and we’re not referring to the Snapdragon 800 and Exynos 5420 CPU Note 3 models or to the recently surfaced dual-sim Note 3 (aka Galaxy Note 3 DUOS). Nope, we’re talking here about the flexible OLED and LCD Galaxy Note 3 models.
If some time ago we found out there’s still hope that a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 model sporting a flexible OLED display will still be released this year, we haven’t heard anything about the LCD Note 3 version. Until now. Join us after the break to find out more.
According to the Korean media, Samsung has planned all along to release an entry-level Galaxy Note 3 with an LCD display. However, the release date of the LCD model has been pushed back in fear that it will “dilute” the premium image of the flagship Samsung Galaxy Note 3 that has been announced earlier this month.
Allegedly, the entry-level Note 3 will be released sometime in November and Samsung expects to sell 3 million units. However, it’s not clear if Samsung counted these 3 millions when it announced that it expects for the Note 3 to sell 10 million units.
As far as other hardware differences between the two models, the same source claims that the cheaper version will come with an 8 MP camera (as opposed to Galaxy Note 3’s 13 MP main camera).
Assuming that it will considerably cheaper and that it will retain the rest of the features packed inside the flagship model, would you be tempted to buy the entry-level Note 3? Let us know in the comments section.
