A device with the (code) name Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo has appeared this week with specifications and a look that suggest Samsung is going back to basics.

It feels like Android 4.3 has taken forever to be released on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2; ever since it was announced that the Note 2 would be skipping Android 4.2 in preference of Android 4.3, we all jumped for joy and waited for that time to come. And waited. The closest indication we’ve gotten in the last few months that Android 4.

Late last year, an alleged Samsung internal document appeared to suggest that Android KitKat would become available for the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 in January 2014, and sure enough, the Android 4.4.2 update for Galaxy Note 3 started rolling out last week.

If you do have a SM-N9005 and you can’t wait for the OTA update, you can try your luck by downloading the update files over at SamMobile Accompanying the roll-out of the Android 4.4.2 update, Samsung has made the kernel source files available for all the excited developers out there.
A few weeks ago, a pre-release build of Android 4.3 for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 was leaked out by SamMobile, but though it included many features ported over from the Galaxy S4 and Note 3, that build appeared to be far from finished.

Samsung loves its flagship devices, it really does. So much that it tries to make use of their names years after the devices themselves have gone out of fashion. This looks like the case with this new Galaxy S III Neo+, a refurbished smartphone from 2012, just with an added extra SIM card slot.
Not that the Galaxy S III is exactly dated.
