Samsung will reportedly launch four different versions of the Galaxy Note III when it launches later this year, according to Korean website ETnews. The report doesn’t reveal many details beyond claiming there will be four iterations, so it could mean a variety of things. We’ve seen Samsung release four different models of the Galaxy S4 (S4, S4 mini, S4 Zoom and S4 Active), but would the company follow that same approach with its phablet? Unlikely.
As Droid-Life points out, Samsung could simply launch an international version of the Note III, and one here in the U.S. That’s two. Each could come in two different storage options—32GB and 64GB—making four total versions of the Note III. Not as exciting as what we’ve seen with the S4 family, but certainly the likeliest scenario. Previous models of the Note have hit the market without any companion devices, and Samsung will probably follow that same model.
But a Note III Active, or even a Note III Zoom? They don’t sound all that outrageous, especially coming from Samsung. As we get closer to IFA, hopefully we’ll hear more information.
