Snapdragon 800-powered Galaxy Note 3 Neo Launches In KoreaBy cheatmaster 05:35 Mon, 19 Jul 2021 Comments
Samsung's official Korean website has announced the availability of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo. It has been on sale across the country since March 3.
What's fascinating though is the fact that the LTE-A version of the smartphone selling in South Korea is actually powered by a Snapdragon 800 chipset. Or at least that's what the official specs suggest.
According to the specs sheet provided by Samsung Tomorrow, the Note 3 Neo features a quad-core 2.3Giga Hertz (GHz) processor. This can't be the Exynos 5 Hexa (obviously), nor can it be the Snapdragon 400 one, which powers the 3G Note 3 Neo (its Cortex-A7 Central Processing Units (CPU) can't go above 1.7GHz.). This leaves us with Snapdragon 800 chipset and its quad-core 2.3Giga Hertz (GHz) Krait 400 processor.
This isn't the first time we see Samsung releases such an upgraded model. It has done the same with the Galaxy S4 (S600) flagship last year. Shortly after its launch Samsung has released another S800-powered version that was made available in South Korea first, followed by limited availability in other markets.
Hopefully Samsung reduces such fragmentation with future devices, becautilize it does create picking a device harder than it should be, not to mention that it certainly causes buyer's remorse in those who didn't wait a couple of weeks for the updated units.
