Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 country distribution list
The news around Samsung’s yet-to-be-seen Galaxy Note 3 keeps cropping up. A new report from SamMobile has revealed that the phablet, just like the Galaxy S4, will come to the market with a couple of versions. And each version will sport a different chipset under the hood. The leak reportedly comes with a complete list of countries that indicates which chipset will go where.
The list primarily shows which countries Samsung is going to distribute the Galaxy Note 3 to. The variants include models that will be powered by either an Exynos 5420 Octa chipset or a Snapdragon 800 SoC. India will be seeing the Exynos 5420 Octa version of the Galaxy Note 3 landing on its shores.
As reported earlier, the Galaxy Note 3 that comes with the Exynos 5420 SoC is listed under the model name SM-N9000 and sports LTE connectivity. The Snapdragon 800 SoC variant of the Galaxy Note 3 bears the model number SM-N9005. According to the new report, the Exynos packing variant will lack 4G network support, though. The good news is that both variants should come packing 3GB of RAM.
The distribution list of countries that the Galaxy Note 3 will hit has reportedly been leaked
According to the source, “If your country gets both processor variants, it is a decision based on the marketing plan of Samsung. Which means if there are LTE networks in your country, Samsung will start with the LTE variant (Snapdragon 800) first.”
Apart from the two variants which have been spoken about, the source also says that there is a third edition of the Galaxy Note 3. And it will sport two SIM card slots. According to the leaked list, however, this model is only going to be available in China. The third variant bears the model number SM-N9002 and will be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 5420 SoC and 3GB of RAM.
Samsung is planning to announce the Galaxy Note 3 during the IFA trade show in Berlin on September 4. With just a few weeks left, Galaxy Note fans don’t have to wait much to see the phablet being officially announced for the market.[source:tech2]
