Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 3 earlier this month and listed 32GB and 64GB as the only available storage options. It was good news for consumers as it seemed Samsung was finally done with the smaller 16GB variant, at least for the flagship devices. However, as it turns out, the 16GB variant is not dead. SamMobiles cited a retailer that listed the 16GB variant and the official product page for Hong Kong also confirms the fact. The decision to sell the 16GB Galaxy Note 3 is interesting because Samsung got a lot of flak with the 16GB Galaxy S4 as Samsung’s software enhancements took a decent amount of storage, giving users about 10GB to play with.
Expected to go on sale from September 25, Samsung Hong Kong will sell both 3G and LTE versions and instead of the 32GB standard version, users will get a 16GB Galaxy Note 3 as the cheapest variant. The Exynos 5 Octa 3G version will sell for HK$5,998 and Snapdragon 800 4G LTE variant for HK$6,198.
There’s no info if Samsung Hong Kong will announce the 32GB or 64GB options at a later date.
