Hexa-core powered Galaxy Note 3 Neo leaks again, this time in pictures

Samsung’s rumored Galaxy Note 3 spinoff, the Galaxy Note 3 Neo, has hit the news again. This time, we’ve been treated to a series of press-style photos showing the device, which unsurprisingly looks very similar to the regular Note 3. The images also seem to confirm the inclusion of Samsung’s S Pen stylus, and a fake leather rear panel.

Note 3 Neo Rear LeakThe images come courtesy of SamMobile.com, where an anonymous source has also said the phone is being prepared for sale in Europe (specifically Belgium) at the moment. The source has also supplied a possible pre-order price of 600 euros, which converts over to $820.

If you think that sounds quite a lot, you’re right, as that’s more than a standard, unlocked Galaxy Note 3. Of course, there is always a difference in price between Europe and the U.S. when it comes to smartphones, and a contract free Note 3 in Belgium costs around 750 euros, so the Neo will almost certainly end up being cheaper when it’s priced up in other currencies.

Note 3 Neo Stylus LeakPrevious rumors surrounding the Galaxy Note 3 Neo gave us a glimpse of the possible specifications, most notably that it will be powered by a hexa-core processor. This, as the name suggests, is a six core chip, which should be made up of a single dual-core processor and another quad-core processor.

According to the earlier leak, the dual-core will have a speed of 1.7GHz, while the quad-core chip should have a 1.3GHz clock speed. It’s an unusual configuration, and Samsung has not made any official announcements regarding an Exynos-branded hexa-core chip, so it may not be accurate. Other possible features include a 5.5-inch, 720p screen, an 8-megapixel camera, and a 3100mAh battery.

All we can do now is wait for the Galaxy Note 3 Neo’s official announcement. We’d expect this to come, at the latest, during Mobile World Congress at the end of February.
