There has been rumors of a low-end version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 called the “Galaxy Note 3 Lite” lately. Samsung did not announce anything specific about the Lite version so far, but it appears that Korean ETNews\( via Chip Loco) reports that the Galaxy Note 3 Lite is already in production.
According to sources, Galaxy Note 3 Lite will not be smaller than the current Note 3, having the same 5.68-inch screen on it. The difference between the two is that the Lite phone will come with a LCD screen, as opposed to AMOLED currently found on the Note 3. Samsung is said to be manufacturing 500,000 Galaxy Note 3 Lite in January and afterwards another 1,500,000 in February. The company hopes that the Lite version will account for around 30% of the sales for the Note 3 lineup.
What Samsung wants to gain through this move to launch the Lite version of the Note 3, nobody really knows. Having two similar devices on the market, one slightly cheaper than the latter, will in fact affect the sales of the more expensive one, that is only logical. Yet Samsung is known to play with similar strategies in the past.
