Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo and Grand Neo launched for Rs 40,900 and Rs 18,450

Samsung is conducting its flagship event, Samsung Forum in Indonesia and has launched two smartphones for the Indian market, the Galaxy Note 3 Neo and Grand Neo with both of them being budget versions of Note 3 and Grand 2 respectively. Let us have a look at the specifications of both of them:

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo:

The slightly cheaper version of the Note 3 has been launched for Rs 40,900. Here are its specifications:


  • 5.5-inch 720p HD Super AMOLED display
  • 1.7 GHz Dual Core + 1.3 GHz Quad Core Exynos processor.
  • It will run on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
  • 8MP rear camera with BSI sensor, 2MP front camera with BSI sensor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16 GB internal memory, 64 GB expandable memory
  • 3G HSPA+, WiFi a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS/ GLONASS, NFC
  • 3100 mAh Battery
  • Black, White and Mint colour options
  • Rs 40,900

It will get a faux leather back and a S-Pen stylus like the regular Note 3. It will come with all the software gimmicks of the Note 3. For us, it looks way overpriced with the specs on offer and Note 3 comes across as a way better alternative.

Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo


Samsung has launched a budget phablet, the Grand Neo officially today for Rs 18,450 and can be purchased through online stores for about Rs 17,000-17,500. Let us take a look at its specs:
