been mum about most of its mobile products at the Consumer Electronics Show
(CES) in Las Vegas, possibly because the handset maker might be waiting for Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona next month to unveil its newest gadgets. Fair enough, though it's incredibly difficult to keep secrets from the Internet. That being the case, we already know quite a bit about Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 3 Neo device.
Earlier this week, the folks at GSMArena
got their paws on a series of leaked internal product positioning documents
from Samsung. The documents revealed more than a few details about the Galaxy Note 3 Neo, which appears to be more of a refreshed Galaxy Note 2
instead of a gimped Galaxy Note 3
as previously rumored.

According to the documents, the Galaxy Note 3 Neo will wield a hexa-core chip comprised of a new 1.7GHz dual-core processor and a 1.3GHz quad-core processor. It will also have a 5.55-inch HD Super AMOLED display (same as the Galaxy Note 2 and just slightly smaller than the Galaxy Note 3's 5.7-inch display), 2GB of RAM, 8MP rear-facing camera, 1.9MP front-facing camera, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, 16GB of built-in storage, microSD card slot, and a 3,100mAh battery.
this morning followed up the leak by posting a picture on Twitter of what it claims is the Galaxy Note 3 Neo (SM-N750/5) sitting next to the Galaxy Note 3. The Neo version is on the left in the picture above. All that's left to do now is sit back and wait for an official announcement from Samsung.
