Samsung rumoured to launch up to four Galaxy Note 3 variants

    One thing is when we go two year contracts I can see there being a much larger gap between the high end devices and the low end devices. I would be all in favour of seeing some medium end devices like the S4 Mini and Moto X being sold and marketed as medium end not head to head with the flagship devices.

    a different model for each carrier was senseless. the multiple models of the S4 are better justified. if the models of the note are as distinct as with the s4 then I think it is acceptable.

    Samsung is falling off. They are over-saturating their flagship lineup with a bunch of phones that look (and practically are) identical to the average consumer. It is going to cause confusion and erode their sales.

    They are also pissing off their loyal fans – myself included – by bloating the absolute hell out of their flagships. Why is my GS4 stuttering SAMSUNG?!?

      Don’t understand this either.

      They worked hard to push the “Galaxy” brand into the psyche of the masses as a good brand. Most smartphone users nowadays would know the Galaxy S line and the Note line.

      Now they want to crowd the S line with a bunch of offshoot products (zoom, active, mini, LTE-A) and they want to crowd the Galaxy brand with even more products (Ace, Grand, Mega).

      This is in addition to their mess of a tablet lineup (Tab, Note, Tab 2 7.0, Tab 3 7.0, Tab 8.0 Tab 3 8.0, and so on).

      HTC, Sony, and LG are starting to put together more cohesive device lineups. I wonder if Samsung has peaked.


    They didn’t introduce the other models because of the S4 not selling as well, they would of had those devices in production and planned nomatter what for a long time. I wouldn’t call producing all the different devices desperate at all, it’s more like they have such a hold on the market that they can afford to try coming out with “The Next Big Thing” which is indeed their catch phrase & they are following it to a T.

    It has come to a point where there is no point buying a new phone since something better will come out in just a few months. Cellphones are going the same way as laptops and PCs.

    I wish they put more focus on Android updates instead of pumping out different variants of similar devices.

  • chris tullett

    Carriers just need to start working with the developers to brand a time and “cost” factor whether contracted or not when it comes to the relase of new high end phones. One new phome every year from companies is more then enough let alone brimging in multiple of one new phone. The market and us simply do not need the added choices when it comes to high end phones and tablets. It just becomes a cost barrier for people as well as another excuse to sign off fpr another 2-3 years.. and samsumg will never fall thpse who think so should switch to apple fo a month then decide

    This is getting ridiculous…..

    If they end up releasing 4 Note 3 variants, there will be:

    ~6 S4s (S4, S4 mini, S4 Active, Zoom, S4 LTE-A, S4 Google Edition) and you never know, at the rate they’re going this number could increase…

    ~5 Tablets (Tab 3 10.1″. Tab 3 8.0″, Tab 3 7″, Note 8.0″, Note 10.1″) not including any Tab 2s which are still for sale

    ~4 Note 3s

    ~3 other Galaxys (Ace,Grand, Mega)

    A total of ~18 variants of phones and tablets all in the high-end market and I’ve probably forgotten a few. I love Samsung and I’m all for innovation but I’d rather see them release maybe one or two of each and implementing all the features in one instead of flooding the market with all these variants.

    As long as the variant releases aren’t staggered too far apart and kept secret so that buyers aren’t able to plan, I say it’s great having variants and options. I don’t like how the S4 Active was released after-the-fact of the S4 Flag. I think they are actually missing out on potential buyers, the same way that they have with their late limited edition colors. They are incentivizing incidental walk in customers with physical features (where price would suffice) instead of targeting and pulling people into the stores. If a phone entusiast is anticipating the release of a few different phones, why not try to tip the scales for that person instead? I have to believe it’s a supply or production line limitation in the rush to market. Then again, maybe we enthusiasts are smaller in number than I thought.
