Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo LTE hits FCC ahead of official announcement


It was last week we got a good look at the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo, a special “lite” variant of the Note 3 Samsung has yet to make official. As evidenced by the leaked images, the Note 3 Neo still follow Samsung’s current design language (complete with faux-leather battery cover), but features specs more in tune with the Galaxy Note 2 than anything else.


If you needed further proof the device is nearing its release, look no further than a recently uncovered FCC filing approving the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo (SM-N7505) for certification. The FCC docs don’t confirm much, just LTE and a couple of schematics that might have come in handy had the device remained hidden.

Rumored specs for the Galaxy Note 3 Neo include a hexa-core processor capable of firing on all 6 cylinders simultaneously (2 cores clocked at 1.7GHz, and 4 at 1.3GHz), 5.55-inch 720p SAMOLED display, 8MP camera, 2GB RAM/16GB storage, 3,100mAh battery, S Pen, and all running on Android 4.3 Jelly Beans. With LTE now confirmed, we can expect this big fella to be announced stateside in the coming days/weeks.

    Not bad! Depending on the price…

    If it were a 1080p screen I may have been sold on it.
    I think I’m staying away from Samsung though until they get over this locked bootloader stuff on certain carriers.
    Samsung, you’re big enough to not have to bow to the carriers. If they don’t want your phone because of unlocked bootloader then they will lose a lot of customers.

    • Henri Weich Conradie

      Strongarming companies (like the carriers) into accepting giving consumers the freedom of unlocked bootloaders would be a great move. Samsung has an opportunity to act in the best interest of consumers. No reason not to tell the carriers to quit being such shortsighted fools.

      • Christopher Cole

        What percentage of customers actually care enough about an unlocked bootloader? Not how many but what percentage. And out of those, how many actually switch to a different company just to get one with an unlocked bootloader? Not including the ones who get unlocked phones or find a method online to unlock bootloaders. Companies have no reason to worry. There’s not a big enough percentage that they will lose because of this.

    Band 5 LTE and GSM? AFAIK only US Cellular has Band 5 LTE in the US, and they’re not a GSM operator.

    I would buy this phone if they could confirm that the speaker used is the same one from the note 2. The note 2’s speaker is without a doubt the best sounding phone speaker I’ve ever heard.
