A new chain of purported images and snapshots of Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo have surfaced online along with the device’ benchmark scores.
The latest alleged live shots of the yet-to-be-announced Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo show the handset from different angles, indicating the device will look similar to Galaxy Note 3 phablet released last year. Besides the similarity, the camera at the backside of the device seems to be altered a bit. The Micro-USB 3.0 port is also said to be replaced with the conventional Micro-USB 2.0.
Coming to the benchmark scores, it has been revealed that the new hexa-core CPU in the device features two cores, which are speculated to be similar to Cortex-A15 chips, clocked at 1.7GHz, along with four Cortex-A7 cores running at 1.3GHz.
GSMArena also speculates that the above processors are a part of the yet-to-be-announced Exynos 5260 chipset. The AnTuTu scores additionally reveal that the device features heterogenous multi-processing (HMP), which enables all six cores to run simultaneously.
The handset is expected to be officially unveiled next month at the Mobile World Congress 2014 event, which will be held in Barcelona.
The yet-to-be-announced Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo, which is being speculated to arrive with a retail name of Samsung Galaxy Grand Lite, is being said to launch in Europe in mid-February 2014, according to a new report, which also quotes a price of 300 euros (roughly Rs. 25,000) after taxes.
Some leaked documents also reveal that the alleged Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo will run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out-of-the-box with company’s TouchWiz on top. The smartphone is likely to be powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core A7 processor (unspecified chipset) with 1GB of RAM.
