Samsung today launched the Note3 Neo, a slightly low-cost variation of the popular Galaxy Note series in a Samsung Forum event in Bali, Indonesia. According to their press release, the company intends to expand their Note series & spread creative possibilities using Samsung Note series phones to more people.

Note3 Neo is built with almost all the features we saw during original Note-3 launch & features one generation lower hardware configuration so that it can fit into comparatively lower price band. Design-wise, Note3 Neo carries the same improved design from primary Note-3 & recently launched Galaxy Grand-2.

The Galaxy Note3 Neo’s hardware configuration mainly includes a 5.5 inch Super AMOLED display, Hexa-core processor (1.7GHz dual-core + 1.3 GHz quad-core), 8MP camera, 3100 mAh battery. It comes with three main colors; White, Black & Green. Detailed hardware specifications are given below.

Note3 Neo’s other feature highlights include; Action Memo, Scrapbook, Screen Write, S Finder, Pen Window, S Note, S Voice, Entertainment package through ‘Club Samsung’. Indian version of the Note3 Neo also supports its TouchViz UI in 11 Indian languages.
