Indokom, a known Indonesian retailer has recently announced that it is putting up the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo on sale which is for IDR 6,799,000 ($555). There is a slight confusion since the Note 3 Neo also comes with LTE+/3G versions and the Indonesian retailer has given away no information on whether this quoted price is for this LTE 3G version or the quad-core dual SIM one. But this is not our main concern at the moment.
What we are looking at here is that the price quoted here is marginally lower than what is quoted in Europe. Just as the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo was officially releases, Samsung wasted no time and within the first 24 hours, the European price tag for this phone was unveiled in Germany. The LTE version was priced at €529.90 ($716) and the HSPA+ version which is considered to be the less powerful one was priced at €499 ($675).
These are the prices which were quoted right after the phone went official and hence we have every reason to believe that these are merely inflated prices and they will go down after a while. The price of this phone in Germany is way too high as compared to the one quoted by the Indonesian retailer which sounds much more realistic. The regular Galaxy Note is sold for IDR8,880,000 by Indikom and the Neo is available for a price which is 23% cheaper.
