Brand new White with Rose Gold accents, Black with Rose Gold accents, and Merlot Red versions of the Galaxy Note 3 have been launched from Samsung, which will sit alongside the already released Jet Black, Classic White and Blush Pink models. The editions with Rose Gold accents are designed to match the Galaxy Gear in the same colour. Samsung is obviously hoping that this will push up sales of its smartwatch, and encourage users to partner the device with its Galaxy Note 3 phablet.
These new colours of the Galaxy Note 3 have exactly the same features as previous models: they run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, with a 13 megapixel rear camera.
In other Galaxy Note 3 news, Samsung is reportedly working on a budget version of the phablet, dubbed the Galaxy Note 3 Lite. The budget smartphone will apparently be released at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February next year.
The budget version of Samsung’s phablet device will obviously cost less, though how much less isn’t clear yet. That clearly means a downgrade in spec, and the rear camera is expected to drop from 13 megapixels to 8. However, that’s still not a low-spec rear camera by any means. The Galaxy Note 3 Lite is also rumoured to be released in 5.49 and 5.7-inch screen size options, and Samsung is expected to switch the casing back to plastic and away from that leather-like backing.
The Galaxy Note 3 Lite will be launched in black and white variants, though maybe we’ll also see a further range of colours released after a few months. Either way, it’s expected that you’ll be able to get your hands on that budget phablet by February or March.
