According to a new report published by the Korean media, the Galaxy Note 3 Lite, which we earlier reported would be launching in 2014,
has entered into mass production on December 12th. Moreover, Samsung is
reportedly expecting the Note 3 Lite to account for 30 percent of all
sales of the Galaxy Note 3 lineup – a rather lofty goal, but one that
the company might be able to achieve if it goes right in
terms of pricing and doesn’t offer too much of a downgraded product
compared to the Note 3.
The report also mentions that the display size will remain at
5.68-inches, as Samsung wants to keep the benefits of the S Pen
unaffected with the Lite variant of the device, while differentiating it
enough so as not to affect sales of the Note 3. Other specs are still
unknown – the display might be changed to an LCD unit and the camera
will be downgraded to 8-megapixel.
As we reported earlier before, the Galaxy Note 3 Lite will be announced in the
Mobile World Congress in February, and will be available in markets from
late February/March in black and white colors.
