Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo passes through FCC ahead of MWC launch

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo has been spotted passing through the FCC, suggesting its launch is imminent.

Original rumours tipped the Galaxy Note 3 Neo for a launch in the first quarter of 2014, which is looking more and more likely because of the FCC filing.

The Galaxy Note 3 Neo will be a smaller, more affordable version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 smartphone and should be officially unveiled at MWC 2014.

Spotted numerous times with the model number SM-N750/5, the Galaxy Note 3 Neo was snapped next to the Note 3 earlier this month.

Specs place the Note 3 Neo in between the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Note 3, with the majority of the specs pinched from the former, while the design (including the fake-leather back plate) taken from the latter.

IT should have a 5.55-inch 720p HD Super AMOLED display and have 16GB of internal storage bolstered by a microSD card slot.

Powered by a 3,100mAh battery, the Note 3 Neo will run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and have 2GB of RAM and an 8-megapixel rear camera.

Like the Note 3, it will also benefits from S Pen stylus features, including Air Command Memo, Scrapbook, S Finder, Pen Window, S Note and Direct Pen input.

Building on the Note 2 specs though, the Note 3 Neo is expected to feature a rather unusual 1.7GHz plus 1.3GHz hexa-core processor. All six cores will be able to run at the same time, unlike the Samsung octa-core processors.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo should be unveiled alongside the Samsung Galaxy S5 at a special event after MWC 2014 in February.
