Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo pictured next to Note 3

The first image of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo has leaked online, showing the smartphone next to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

Samsung is supposedly planning to launch a smaller, more affordable version of its Galaxy Note 3 smartphone at MWC 2013 and now we have what claims to be the first image of it.

The leaked image comes courtesy of the notorious SamMobile on Twitter, who claims this is an image of the Galaxy Note 3 Neo and touts a model number SM-N750/5.

Unfortunately, there’s no other information posted with the image, apart from the fact it’s been laid side-by-side with the Galaxy Note 3.

However, earlier this week leaked internal product positioning documents offered us some specs for the Galaxy Note 3 Neo, previously tipped to be called the Galaxy Note 3 Lite.

According to the leaked info, the Galaxy Note 3 Neo will have a 5.55-inch 720p HD Super AMOLED display, an 8-megapixel camera and a 3300mAh battery, all of which match the specs offered by the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

Building on the Galaxy Note 2 specs though, the Note 3 Neo will have a rather unusual 1.7GHz dual plus 1.3GHz quad-core “Hexa” processing chip. This will apparently be backed by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.

Although you can’t see it in the above image, the Note 3 Neo will also feature the faux-leather back panel introduced with the Note 3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014.

Samsung is expected to launch the Note 3 Neo alongside the Samsung Galaxy S5 at a special event post-MWC 2014.
