Samsung recently unveiled its new flagship phablet, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The Galaxy Note 3 is already available for pre-order, but we still do not know everything about the device (or the range of devices, to be more specific). The dual-SIM version of Galaxy Note 3 is not out yet, but we now have a very good idea about what’s headed to China.
Similar to the Samsung Galaxy S4, the Galaxy Note 3 will also be available in a number of different versions – standard, dual-SIM and LTE; at least that’s what Samsung has said so far. We wouldn’t be surprised if Samsung comes up with an Active version of the Note 3 (dust proof and water proof). But for now, we have some really interesting news about the Galaxy Note 3 N9002, the dual-SIM model.
As already announced by Samsung, the dual-SIM version of Galaxy Note 3 will be released in China. But just days before the device becomes official, leaked images of the same have surfaced on the Internet. The images give out a lot of technical information about the device, and we are very much happy with the findings.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 N9002 will also be equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset. The phablet will be powered by a 2.3GHz Krait 400 quad-core processor, Adreno 330 GPU and 2GB of RAM. The AnTuTu benchmark results for this particular device are already out, and it scores an excellent 31, 276. For now, this does mean that the standard Galaxy Note 3 scores better in AnTuTu benchmark, but the final figures might be almost equal.
The source that gave out information about the N9002 said that are a total of four Galaxy Note 3 versions for China. The N9002 mentioned above will be available on China Unicom. The other variants are N9008 that will be available on China Mobile and N9009 that will be available on China Telecom, the last one was not mentioned.
Consumers should also ‘note’ that the dual-SIM Galaxy Note 3 phablet will not be any different from the regular model apart from the extra SIM card slot. So it will have the exact same 5.7-inch touchscreen display, 13MP primary camera, 3200mAh battery and will run on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean right out of the box. But it’s still unclear whether the dual-SIM version will be available in international markets or not (we doubt this will happen).
