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. To achieve a price cut, the Galaxy Note III will lose the Super AMOLED screen in favor of a regular LCD...

Once again, this is Samsung's strategy to penetrate the market even more, being affordable to all and targeting the students. There's no other phablet out there that competes the Note features like multiwindow, wacom etc. Just an awesome productivity device.
I hope they release a waterproof & dustproof version.

Samsung's efforts to popularize its next flagship phablet is appreciable. I wonder what about processor and RAM details of cheaper Note III? Any sacrifices on that?

They are not releasing a cheap one, the note 2 is still selling strong.

why even 8MP? why not 5MP?
to increase usability of this device, Samsung should focus on improving battery capacity and stand-by time and talk time (2G/3G/4G)

I do not understand this strategy. Note is a premium brand in Samsung's flagship and by diluting it, its loosing many customers. Whats Samsung Grand for? or Mega for?

It seems like a lot of people in the comments are misinterpreting the article, or are just dumb. Samsung isn't downgrading the note III entirely. Just selling a separate, cheaper version to reach those not as wealthy. And for those saying "if samsung releases a cheap version, I won't buy", why not just get the more expensive version?...I honestly don't know why I read the comments. lol

i wouldn't sacrifice the amoled display, i'd rather buy something else than a note 3 without amoled, amoled is the best display, can't imagine using something else now, the colors, the angles the deep black, its amazing, seriously lcd is shit and retina is just a name for +300 ppi density, it doesn't have/do anything special, u can call a retina display any display with +300 only wish i had a amoled screen for my pc.

All my phones have a soft silicon case and if my galaxy s2 wasnt stolen i would have not bought a secondhand s3.
Burn in?
Ive always used amoled screens and and never got burn in.
Killed somebody? Wasnt it the apple phone that electrocuted a woman in china?
Get your facts straight.

This is what we call business. Risks risks everywhere. Unless you don't try something out, you'll never know about its pros and cons and for that, you need to have some finance backing you up.

Avoid abnormal profit and you have secure your future. However, abnormal conditions are an exception.
