Last month, we heard a rumor about Samsung’s expected Galaxy Note III, claiming that the phone might be released with an LCD display, alongside a version of the Note III using one of Samsung’s favorite AMOLED panels. The idea wasn’t so crazy, as we’re well used to seeing Samsung create multiple hardware variants for the same device. This week we see rumors along this line take things a little further, with claims that the phone could arrive in up to for different configurations.

Beyond just display types, this report claims that we’ll also see changes made to the phablet’s camera and its build materials.

From the sound of things, the desire might be to produce a family of Note IIIs that hit varying price points. At the high end, there’d be an AMOLED version with 13-megapixel camera and a body built from more premium materials. This could be one of the first phones using a flexible AMOLED substrate to create an “unbreakable” display, and may arrive as a special limited edition.

Going down a step from that, there’d be a GN3 with a regular AMOLED screen and with a shell made from more traditional plastic. The next rung down on the ladder would replace that AMOLED with an LCD, but keep the 13-megapixel camera, while the lowest-tier GN3 would have an LCD and drop to an 8-megapixel camera.

Of course, even if this is true it doesn’t mean that all markets will see all versions, so your actual choices could be a lot more limited.
