Samsung Electronics announced on February 24, 2014 that its new phone-tablet device – the Galaxy Note 3 Neo – will be launched in Taiwan during the second quarter of 2014. After the launch, the latest device will make use of the unique 700 MHz frequency of the country.


The new Galaxy Note 3 Neo was launched at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona and represents a smaller version of the Galaxy Note series. Reports say that the new device will also be budget-friendly and will cost less than NT$20,000. Jeffry Hsu, the product manager of Samsung Taiwan’s mobile communication team revealed the information about the pricing, but declined to state the exact release date, exact price or details of the company’s partnerships with local carriers regarding the device’s launch.

Hsu said, “It will be good for local consumers to have a 4G phone that can support all 4G bandwidth frequencies”. The product manager talked at a press briefing to present the Note 3 Neo, which supports six different LTE frequencies across the globe.

The Galaxy Note 3 Neo has a 5.5-inch 720p display with a processor of 1.7 GHz dual-core A15 Chip, as well as a 1.3 GHz quad-core A7 chip, an 8-megapixel camera and Android 4.3 operating system. During the show, the company also launched two new smartwatches – the Gear 2 and the Gear 2 Neo – which allow users to accept or ignore incoming calls and messages.
