Cheaper Galaxy Note III with LCD and 8MP cam is in the works - read the full textThe latest rumors coming from Korea suggest Samsung is trying to lower the cost of the Galaxy Note III phablet for the emerging markets by replacing some internals with cheaper components.

I thought the cameras were 13mp not 8mp?
The note II has the 8mp and the Note III supposedly had the 13mp

if the cheaper one is the same dimension and same design with the premium one, then the premium note 3 will not be exclusive smartphones anymore..

Yes, Samsung is most popular with its multi Choice gadgets for universal cunsumers.
Not only 2, but atleast 3-4 versions of world most poupular Galaxy Note III is welcome.

With Samsung, they flood the market with multiple devices (Galaxy Grand, Grand Quattro, Galaxy Core to name a few lookalikes) looking almost the same, which takes away the EXCLUSIVITY of having a premium model.

Having a similar design language is fine...having the same design for multiple (excessive and redundant at times) phones across the price range is not...maybe good for sales but hurts the brand premium factor.

Tell me something, if someone is working on an upgraded version of something and name it as a successor of it's old model. Will it be a downgrade to that model? In an easy way, is 2 is greater than 3? Less than 3? or Equal to 3?

Answer yourself. You can do it.....

The main problem is that the cheaper Note III will look almost similar to the premium model...which is a problem with all of Samsung phone...there is brand identity but the customer loses the appeal of people recognizing their device especially when it is a premium model.
I have a S3 but it's sad to see hordes of other Galaxy and Grand lower end phones that look exactly alike!
