Galaxy Note 3, the latest Android-based smartphone from Samsung Electronics, was made official in 32GB and 64GB versions, but it appears that a 16GB variant of the handset was also developed.
Said model has already emerged at a retailer in Hong Kong, and the official page for the device confirms the fact that it arrives in this market with only 16GB of internal memory, as SamMobile notes.
Many believed that Samsung would no longer release 16GB versions of its high-end smartphones, especially after receiving a lot of criticism on the 16GB Galaxy S4, but it appears that the company thought otherwise.
Galaxy Note 3 should land on shelves in Hong Kong on September 25 in both 3G and LTE iterations. The Exynos 5 Octa 3G model will be priced at HK$5,998 ($774 / €572), while the Snapdragon 800 4G LTE flavor will go for HK$6,198 ($799 / €591).
What remains to be seen is whether Samsung will launch the 32GB and 64GB variants of Galaxy Note 3 in this market as well, though no specific info on this has been provided until now.
Users in Hong Kong interested in learning more on what the Galaxy Note 3 will have to offer to them once it becomes available for purchase should head over to the phone’s page on Samsung’s website to learn more on the matter.
Galaxy Note 3 was made official on September 4 with a 5.7-inch full HD touchscreen display and 3GB of RAM. It also sports the aforementioned two processor options.
Furthermore, the smartphone packs a 13-megapixel camera on the back, with full HD video recording, as well as a front camera for making video calls.
The usual set of connectivity options was also packed inside the mobile phone, including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0, GPS receiver, USB3.0 support, NFC, and the like. The handset runs under Google’s Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system.
