At the Samsung Forum 2014 in Bali, Samsung has announced the Galaxy Note III Neo as well as the Galaxy Grand Neo for the Indian market. The Note III Neo was announced in the international market last month but failed to gather any sort of momentum or generate interest among the public. Given the exponential pricing on the Note III, it was expected Samsung will provide the best of the features of Note III at an affordable rate, but looking at the price of the Note III Neo and the specs, it looks like Samsung has missed the sweet spot and by a fair bit.
The Samsung Galaxy Note III Neo is available for Rs. 40,900 while the Galaxy Grand Neo will be retailing for Rs. 18,400
Samsung Galaxy Note III Neo
From the specs point of view, the Samsung Galaxy Note III Neo is very much a trimmed version of the Note III in terms of internals. The device has a 2 GB RAM and a 16 GB internal memory as compared to the 32 GB and 3 GB combination on the Note III. The device features a 5.5 inch Super AMOLED HD Display (720P) and is powered by a 3100 mAh battery. The device has a very similar faux leather back as that on the Note III and is slightly lighter at about 163g as compared to the Note III. The Note III Neo is powered by the first hexa-core LTE Exynos processor for the non-LTE model, running off dual 1.7GHz cores for intensive tasks and four 1.3GHz cores for light things. There is a 8 MP rear camera and will have the S-Pen and all the S-Pen supported apps on board for the device. It will come with Android 4.3 out of the box.

There is a 5 MP rear camera on the device and 1 GB of RAM with 16 GB ROM to support all your Android applications. The Galaxy Grand Neo is powered by a 2100 mAh battery and will ship with Android 4.2 out of the box.
