Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo, a variant of popular Galaxy Note 3 which was announced earlier this month, is now available for purchase in Indonesia. The Indonesian retailer Indikom has put up the alleged phone on sale for a price of $555 (IDR 6,799,000). However retailer has not mentioned if this is the price for the hexa-core LTE+/3G version of the Note 3 Neo or for the quad-core dual SIM one.
Soon after the announcement, both LTE as well as HSPA+ variants went on sale in European markets (particularly in Germany) carrying a price tag of €529.90 (approx. $716) and €499 (approx. $675) respectively.
Considering the European price tag, the price of Note 3 in developing markets like Indonesia seem to be more realistic and reasonable than its German pricing. Given that the Indikom sells the regular Note 3 for IDR8,880,000, the Neo is 23% cheaper than its premium sibling. If we apply the same logic to the European market, the new Samsung phablet should arrive at a price of about €385, which sound much more reasonable.
To remind, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo packs 5.5-inch Super AMOLED HD display, 2GB RAM, 8MP camera, 2MP front camera, microSD card slot, 3100 mAh battery, Wi-Fi, NFC, IR blaster, and Bluetooth 4.0.
