Samsung will not be bringing the Galaxy Note 3 Lite, or Galaxy Note 3 Neo as some sites are reporting its been retitled, to these shores, despite widespread pre-release coverage in the tech press.

An official statement in which the phone-maker grandly referred to itself in the third person said: “Samsung can confirm that the Note 3 Lite will not be coming to the UK market.”

Samsung, which isn’t normally shy of flooding a market with multiple iterations of its handsets, didn’t give a reason for the decision. Or detail which markets it will be releasing the phone in.

However, Britons’ fondness for larger smartphones and willingness to eschew the mid-range for top-end models is bound to have something to do with denying the handset an appearance in the UK.

Expected to tip up at Mobile World Congress next month, the Note 3 Lite’s spec sheet purportedly takes in a 5.55-inch screen featuring none-more-Samsung Super AMOLED screen technology, plus an eight megapixel camera and 16GB of internal storage.

Rumours suggest a 3,100mAh battery is also on board, alongside microSD card support and a 1.7GHz dual-core processor.
