Galaxy Note 3 Lite UAProf leaked, suggests 720p handset with Android 4.3

Thanks to a recently leaked UAProf for the Galaxy Note 3 Lite, we have now learned that the handset may feature a 720p display and could arrive with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean over KitKat. Read on for more details!
January 2, 2014

We’ve already heard more than one report suggesting that Samsung is preparing a “Lite” variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for release in the first quarter of 2014, but up until now we really have known nothing about what to expect from the handset.

Finally we are learning a bit more thanks to a leaked UAProf (user agent profile) for the SM-N750, which we believe is the 3G variant of the Galaxy Note 3 Lite. The UAProf shows that the Note 3 Lite is currently running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean instead of KitKat. Beyond that, the UAProf also reveals that the Note 3’s 1080p display is being sacrificed for a cheaper, lower-resolution 720p screen.

Unfortunately, that’s about all we know about the handset, other than the rumor that it might be launching with a green color option. We can speculate that the Note 3 Lite will cut storage down and feature a less-impressive older Snapdragon CPU, but it’s really hard to say at this point.

The big takeaway is that, between the numerous reports and the existence of this UAProf, it’s looking more and more likely that the Note 3 Lite is more than just a rumor. Then again, nothing is official until Samsung says it is, so take all of this with a grain of salt.

If Samsung can introduce the Note 3 Lite at a fair price while keeping the big 5.7-inch display and the S-Pen, we imagine that this handset could be extremely popular among those looking for a similar experience to the Note but without having to pay a fortune to get it.

What do you think, would you be interested in the Note 3 Lite as a budget alternative or not?
