SamsungGalaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ 5G are available in the U.S. with respective price tags of $949 and $1,099. Fresh report that has appeared on SamMobile reads that the South Korean tech giant could be working on a cheaper Galaxy Note smartphone. In 2014, the South Korean company had sold a cheaper edition of Note 3 called Galaxy Note 3 Neo. There is a possibility that the newly spotted Samsung SM-N770F could be the affordable version of the Galaxy Note 10.
The model numbers of Galaxy Note models begin with letter N. All the Note series of smartphones that have launched so far have SM-N9XX model numbers. The Galaxy Note 10’s model number is SM-N970 and the older Galaxy Note 3 Neo had Sm-N750 model number. Hence, it is being speculated that the SM-N770F may arrive as a stripped-down version of the Note 10. It remains to be seen whether it will be launching as Note 10 Neo.
The other reason why SM-N770F seems to be a non-flagship Note smartphone is that Samsung has been reportedly working on SM-F700F as an affordable version of the Galaxy Fold foldable phone. The flagship edition Galaxy Fold has a model number of SM-F900F. Hence, the SM-F700F seems to be its cheaper variant.
The alleged Galaxy Note 10 Neo could be in works to provide users with Note experience along with S Pen stylus at an affordable price. With Note 10 priced at $949, the purported Note 10 Neo could be costing around $700. Since all this is just speculation, it is advisable to wait for further reports to know more on the SM-N770F handset.
In related news, a report from the previous week had claimed Samsung may consider killing the Galaxy Note series in 2020. The reason behind it is that the size of Galaxy S series has been consistently increasing and gaining characteristics that are available on Note series. The report had claimed that that the Galaxy Note series could be replaced by Galaxy Fold lineups.
