Another Dual SIM Samsung Galaxy S3 variant has surfaced, this time on official channels, dubbed as Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo and yes, this phone is slightly different another dual SIM variant named Galaxy S3 Neo Plus which we talked about some time back.

Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo Plus comes with a 4.8 inch Super AMOLED display with 720p HD resolution similar to the predecessor 2012 flagship phone. It’s not yet certain if Corning Gorilla Glass 2 protection is present on the smartphone as well.

The phone is powered by 1.2 GHz quad core chipset, and that is what primarily differentiates it with Galaxy S3 Neo plus and Galaxy S3, both of which sport the same 1.4 GHz quad core chipset. The RAM capacity is decent 1.5 GB and the internal storage is 16 GB and can be further extended to 64 GB using MicroSD support.

Imaging hardware remains same with 8 MP camera at the back and a 1.9 MP camera at the front. The battery powering the internals is rated at 2100 mAh. The body design and weight are also similar to other two variants with 8.6 mm body thickness. On the software front, the phone will run on Android 4.3 out of the box.

Connectivity features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS/ A-GPS, Micro-USB and 3G. Galaxy S3 Neo is already retailing on Snapdeal and in conventional brick and mortar stores for 25,420 INR, which is more than what you have to pay for the original Galaxy S3. So what do you get for the enhanced cost price? Answer is dual SIM connectivity, more RAM (1.5 GB) and perhaps a more up to date processor with Cortex A7 cores(?).
