Samsung To Launch A Budget Version Of The Galaxy Note 2?
If you like to keep up to date with the latest smartphone news and rumours, the chances are you may have already read about speculation regarding the Samsung Galaxy S4 which has been hinted as the replacement to Samsung’s current bestseller, the Galaxy S3.
According to Sammobile, Samsung also has a number of other rumoured devices up its sleeve. The website claims that an insider at Samsung has leaked information regarding plans for upcoming handsets from the South Korean manufacturer.
Among the most interesting is a low end Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The Galaxy Note 2 is arguably the most advanced handset in Samsung’s current line-up. It has also sold very well since its launch back in September, with over 5 million units sold in its first month. It is a follow up to last year’s original Galaxy Note which turned out to be very popular (over 12 million sold) despite many doubting the popularity of its large screen and stylus pen format.
The only information posted on the site regarding the low end Galaxy Note 2 is that it will not have a sAMOLED screen or S-Pen, so current Galaxy Note 2 owners still have a premium device. If this handset becomes a reality, it would likely go down the route of the Galaxy S3 Mini and feature a number of downgraded specs like the processing power and camera resolution.
Of course, this is just a rumour for now as the source of this information cannot be verified for its credibility. So take this info with a pinch of salt for now, and we will report back when we hear of any developments.
In the meantime, what are your thoughts on such a device? Should Samsung make a lower spec and more affordable Galaxy Note 2, or would this take away from the premium nature of the Galaxy Note 2? Please leave your thoughts with a comment below.
