New 5.5" Samsung Galaxy Note Neo to launch in February!

Samsung today took the wraps off a new member in the Note family, but unlike the huge Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 which it debuted at CES, this new unit is really smaller than the actual generation Note smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo comes with a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display, that's just a hair less space-consuming than the 5.7-inch display found on the Note 3. It’s also slightly lower-res, being released at 720p as opposed to 1080p.

Not only do the internals of the Note 3 Neo and Note 3 differ, but additionally, there are two versions from the Note 3 Neo with slightly different specs. The first model, which offers wireless connectivity that maxes out at 21Mbps HSPA, is powered by way of a 1.6GHz quad-core processor. Samsung can be cranking out an “LTE+” model which offers speeds all the way to 150Mbps as well as a hexa-core processor that’s packing a dual-core 1.7GHz CPU as well as a 1.3GHz quad-core chip.

The spec lists from the two Note 3 Neo versions are fairly similar beyond that. Both units sport 2GB of RAM, 16GB of built-in storage, a microSD card slot and 3100mAh batteries. There are 8-megapixel cameras on the backs of both phones as well as 2-megapixel shooters resting above their 5.5-inch displays. Finally, both Note 3 Neo models have bodies that measure in at 8.6mm thick with black, white and green paint options.

On the application side of things, the Note 3 Neo comes preloaded with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean running beneath Samsung’s TouchWiz interface. Included with that custom UI are some features which might be also located on the regular Note 3, including Air Command and updated versions of S Note, Easy Clip, My Magazine and Multi-Window. Compatibility with Samsung’s Galaxy Gear smartwatch is there, too.

Samsung says that this Galaxy Note 3 Neo will begin making its way into stores world wide in February. The company hasn’t specified exactly which countries it’ll be bringing the Note 3 Neo to or how much it’ll cost to consider one home if it does, but Samsung officials did recently claim that there are no intends to launch this 5.5-inch phablet in the U.K. or U.S., so consumers in those parts of the globe will have to settle for a normal ol’ Note 3 should they want to get their phablet fix. For everyone else, the Note 3 Neo appears to be a respectable device that is a nice option for folks in the hunt for a large but affordable handset, as long as Samsung’s costs are right.

What do you think of the Galaxy Note 3 Neo? Would you make Samsung’s newest phablet your day-to-day driver?

4K Display In your Pocket? could it be for the Galaxy Note 4?!

When it comes to Samsung, most people are pretty much dedicated to the news in connection with upcoming Galaxy S5 handset. What’s passing us by is news for the Galaxy Note 4 and Samsung has finally discussed it initially in public.

During the Seminconductor and Display Technology Roadmap Seminar 2014, Samsung confirmed it is working on an AMOLED QHD smartphone. Straight after announcing that, the Korean manufacturer then revealed it can be working on something more impressive.

Samsung revealed it's plans to have an AMOLED Ultra HD, 3480x2160 pixel smartphone display. Considering it’ll bring with it 820 pixels-per-inch on the 5-inch display, that's pretty awesome news. We shouldn’t be able to ahead of ourselves though, this is apparently a long way off.

But would the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 be able to include a 4K display? It’s unlikely considering we haven’t got our hands on a high end smartphone using a 2K display at this time but anything can be done. Samsung is clearly planning way into the long run so maybe the Galaxy Note 5 will be the step up to some 4K display on your bottom line? Exciting!
Samsung’s mobile chief Lee Young Hee has revealed a great deal about the company’s plans for 2014 including a release window and features for that Galaxy S5.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 could use a "three sided" display

During an interview with Bloomberg, the executive also said another Galaxy Note might use a “three sided display” and will also be designed so users can read messages with an angle. That's a pretty difficult idea to imagine, nonetheless it sounds cool nonetheless. Could this certainly be a creative use of Samsung's flexible OLED tech as we saw demonstrated on prototypes at CES 2012?

Hee added this Galaxy Note successor, which we are able to only assume being the Galaxy Note 4 is going to be released within the second half of 2014 and will probably be aimed at the high-end market. That certainly is smart, Samsung has additionally been rumoured to be developing a cheaper Galaxy Note "Lite" model, nevertheless it's unlikely which a budget edition would experiement with fancy new display technology so as to keep the cost down.

Hee said, “We are targeting consumers who wish more professional use and tend to get willing to pay more for handsets.”

She didn’t elaborate how exactly the triple-sided display is acceptable, but we’re sure to be hearing a little more about that inside the coming months. As soon as we do we’ll keep you posted.

Hee also confirmed the Galaxy Gear 2 smartwatch is going to be released alongside the Galaxy S5. The Samsung Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Gear 2 will likely be released "around March and April" making those rumours of an announcement at MWC 2014 even more likely.
