The Samsung juggernaut is showing no signs of slowing down anytime down.
Samsung announced today that it has sold over 10 million units of the Galaxy Note 3 thus far. The Note 3 has been available in stores for just over two months, and has seen a lot of demand in countries like China. The device managed to sell twice as fast as the Galaxy Note II, and came close to the numbers achieved by the Galaxy S4, which sold over 10 million units in 50 days. The Galaxy Note 3 is available in 58 countries, and Samsung has recently launched two new color variations of the device in Argentina, with international rollout scheduled for later this year.
While the Note 3 has been in high demand, Samsung is bringing the same set of features to a wider audience in the Galaxy Note 3 Lite, which will be a more affordable version of the device with a smaller 5.4-inch screen. The Galaxy Note 3 price in countries like India is at $680, which makes the device out of reach for most buyers. It is for this reason that Samsung is looking to launch a device like the Galaxy Note 3 Lite.
Details regarding the device are not known other than the screen size, but it is estimated that Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note 3 Lite along with the Galaxy Grand Lite at the MWC next year.
