While rumors about a cheap version of Samsung's Galaxy Note 3 phablet are not new, the chances of seeing them coming true are very low at this time. After all there are three variants already confirmed (3G, dual SIM, 3G<E) and, according to recent reports published by Korean media, a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 featuring a flexible OLED display will be released tomorrow.
Unfortunately, Indian blog Techkiddy does not deliver detailed information about this alleged limited edition of Samsung Galaxy Note 3, so all this should be taken with a grain of salt.
While the flexible OLED display allows the phablet to be thinner and lighter than the current Note 3 variants, it may be possible for it to offer a slightly increased autonomy as well. Such an improvement would be notable especially if Samsung decides to use a different processor or the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 800/Exynos 5 Octa 5420 as in the standard variants, but with reduced clock speeds.
More than the above, it has been proven already that flexible OLED displays are very durable thanks to the material used in their manufacturing, so the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 featuring such a display would be thinner, lighter, more durable and its battery life would be improved. If the rumors prove to be true, we will find out more about this in a day or two.
