The Note 3 Neo will have a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 720 x 1280 pixels or ~265 ppi pixel density which is a notch down from Note 3’s 5.7-inch, 1080 x 1920 pixels or ~386 ppi pixel density.

Based on preliminary reports, the Note 3 Neo will be using a Quad-core 1.3 GHz & dual-core 1.7 GHz processor, with no reported chipset or GPU just yet. It will get a 2GB RAM though instead of the 3GB found in Note 3.

You will get a 8 Megapixel primary camera with 3264x2448 pixels with autofocus, LED flash, simultaneous HD video and image recording, geo-tagging, touch focus, face and smile detection and image stabilization; a step down from Note 3’s 13 Megapixel camera. The secondary camera also gets reduced to 1.9 MP from 2 MP.

When it comes out sometime in Quarter 2 2014, it will still be running Android Jelly Bean 4.3 although by that time, you should be getting KitKat 4.4 already as part of the upgrade plans.

You will get 16GB of internal storage with an option to further expand with a microSD slot of up to 64GB, well that’s good to know.

Battery-wise, it comes with a Li-Ion 3100 mAh battery which is great considering the specs and the screen size. Even the Note 3 comes with only Li-Ion 3200 mAh battery.

So if you’re looking for a cheaper alternative to Note 3, then look no further than its little brother, the Note 3 Neo. It also comes with the S Pen which makes the Note unique in its own way. But ultimately, time will tell on the exact pricing, but it’s definitely something worth looking at in the next couple of months.
