Samsung to launch Lite variants of Note 3, Grand and Tab 3

Samsung is reportedly working on 'Lite' versions of some of its most popular Android devices, such as the Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Grand and Galaxy Tab 3 which are expected to be announced early next year.

SamMobile has learned from its sources that Samsung is planning to announce Galaxy Note 3 Lite and Galaxy Grand Lite smartphones at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in February, which would continue the company's efforts to make devices available across all price points while retaining the branding from its premium devices.

The Note 3 Lite is claimed to have an LCD screen of between 5.5 and 5.7 inches, which would be a downgrade from the AMOLED screen from the Note 3, in addition to a lower-resolution camera. It is reported to have a product number of GT-N7505 and will be launched in black and white colour variants. Other specifications are not currently known.

Grand Lite

The Grand Lite, GT-I9060, will reportedly feature a 5-inch LCD screen with WVGA resolution, 1.2GHz quad core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage with microSD slot, 5-megapixel rear camera, VGA front-facing camera and a 2,100mAh battery. It will be available in black, lime green and orange variants according to SamMobile's inside information.

The Tab 3 Lite, SM-T11, is rumoured to launch at the end of January with pricing around 100 Euros. It will be available in both Wi-Fi and 3G variants but no other specifications are known for the tablet.

Samsung launched a "Mini" version of their flagship Galaxy S4 earlier this year with a smaller screen but the "Lite" versions are expected to retain the screen size while compromising on other hardware.

Pass. My GS3 will hold me over until the GS5 which hopefully will be done "right".

I say, keep it until GS VI or such. If it works well, I don't see why to change it. It's a very good phone.

Really? Same old crappy look. For a big company as Samsung is, it is surprising they cannot come up with a better design. The LG and others can do it. They can do it if they tried hard enough and put enough R&D in to it.

Continuously firing off a shotgun of products just confuses the marketplace. Enough already Samsung! I love my phone and tablet made by them mind you.

I can just imagine Samsung Galaxy Mini Lite,
Samsung starting to name products like Microsoft used to.

Too many bleedin' products, Samsung! And most in the same series (i.e. same words)!

THIS. People that try to get cases in a store for Samsung phones and tablets... good friggin luck! Every design is seemingly different just enough to force you into buying new accessories each time, even if the models are very close...

Pricing will be very important. Hopefully Samsung doesn't pull what Apple did with the iPhone 5C and price these phones only $100 cheaper.

100% agreed, if only 1/7 cheaper then the full model, then its pointless...
