In just over two weeks the world will likely find out exactly what the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will deliver in terms of official specs and features, which is due to a press event that’s expected to unveil Samsung’s latest phablet. Some of our readers have previously mentioned that nothing else will matter after this date, although this is of course up for debate and dependent on the brands ability to meet high expectations.
Only last week we heard a rumor pointing to the possibility of a thinner Samsung Galaxy Note 3 thanks to an improved Wi-Fi chip, which needs less room and could potentially allow Samsung to make the handset even thinner if they wanted to rather than add something extra. Today, we wanted to highlight some other recent news that focuses on the processor and a range of specs for different countries.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Octa vs. LTE – while some people would prefer to have a version with the Exynos 5 Octa processor and LTE, it seems like things won’t be so simple. Last week we touched on the full list of countries thanks to Sam Mobile that reveal predicted variants of Galaxy Note 3 for each of these countries. The model numbers include SM-N900 with an Octa-Core plus 3G, SM-N9005 with LTE and a Snapdragon 800, then finally the SM-N9002 as an Octa-Core and Duos version.
It now seems like shoppers will have to choose between an Exynos 5 Octa with 3G and the Snapdragon 800 with LTE, although the US only has the latter option but this seems to be just fine for a number of people sharing their thoughts on this news.
One commenter said, “from what I’ve seen the Snapdragon 800 benchmarks higher than the Octa Core anyway”. Others are not happy and that can be seen with a number of comments like this, “you would have thought Samsung could produce an 8 Core 4G by now, but I’d rather have 4G than 8 cores considering how fast 4 cores is already”.
Would you prefer to have a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with 8 cores or LTE? Hit the comments with your thoughts. Let us know if you think the current quad core options are fast enough and if 4G is more important to you.
