As if we have not had enough of rumors on the Galaxy Note 3 device, here is some more. Now as per a report citing sources privy to Samsung’s smartphone ambitions, the South Korean manufacturer could be seen releasing a cheaper variant of the Note 3. Yes there are rumors of cheaper galaxy note 3 release date.
However, it is not known as of now if a cheaper variant will also entail a smaller display area as well, something that Samsung has been up to with its Galaxy S4 Mini which sports a slightly smaller display compared to the S4. However, what also can’t be denied is that the Note 3 typifies larger display which again is of critical importance for the many unique features the device has come to offer.
What is a certainty though is that the cheaper Note 3 version will have slightly lower capacity internals. While nothing stands confirmed as of now, a slightly less capable chip such as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor or a matching Exynos 5 chip could be seen powering the upcoming budget Note 3 device.
That apart, a slightly lower internal memory such as say 16 GB could also be incorporated to cut costs, with a micro SD card slot added to allow more to be added later. The same applies to the camera as well, with an 8 mp camera likely to be included in the Note 3 while the flagship Galaxy Note 3 can continue with the 13 mp camera that is also included in the Galaxy S4. Another area where Samsung can save a few bucks is by incorporating a LCD display of acceptable resolution instead of a super AMOLED display that the Note 3 is rumored to come with.
All of the above is still in rumor stages though if Samsung indeed comes up with a lower priced Note 3 than it could mean the death knell for many a smartphone device. Not to mention, this will also kick off a price war among smartphone manufacturers. Such a trend will also surely be picked up by other manufacturers of large screen smartphones so that we could now be seen lower priced versions of flagship phablet devices flooding the market.
