In the past weeks we have been hearing that the Galaxy Note III will appear in 2 variants, differing by RAM and LTE or no LTE. Now, the Korean media is reporting that the Galaxy Note III will be available in 4 different models for users to choose from. The Korean website ETNews has announced that Samsung is going to release 4 variants of the Galaxy Note III, even though the differences between them will be pretty discreet. It seems that the highest rated Galaxy Note III will be made of more valuable materials and it will have a camera of 13 megapixels and an unbreakable AMOLED display of Samsung's. This one will be the so called limited edition among the four. The second version of the Galaxy Note III will only differ from the first one in terms of display, thus it will have an AMOLED display, but the regular one, not the unbreakable. The third model will also have a different display, an LCD and the last one will also have an LCD and it will be different in terms of camera, for it will feature a 8 megapixels camera. The question is why make four different versions of the Galaxy Note III with such similar features, instead of making just one big unique Galaxy Note III? One possibility would be the not so new problem of Samsung, the components' availability. Samsung experienced this with the Galaxy S4 Exynos 5 Octa processor. So they may not be able to produce a big amount of AMOLED displays and instead of running short while assembling the so popular and expected device, Samsung has come up with the idea of creating it from the start in different variants, so the customers could also choose. Another possibility would be that Samsung might want to price these versions of the device differently so they have a wider approach on the market.
