With the original Samsung Galaxy Note nearing its first birthday, we’ve been starting to hear more and more about its upcoming successor, the Galaxy Note II. Today, the rumor mill has churned out another one – except this time, it’s in the form of supposed Galaxy Note II benchmarks.
Given that the current Galaxy Note’s model identifier is GT-N7000, and this new device’s is GT-N7100, it only makes sense that this is the new Note. According to the benchmarks, the new device will be running a quad-core Exynos 4412 processor with Mali-400 graphics, the same CPU/GPU combination that’s found in Samsung’s Galaxy S III line of devices; in the Note II, however, the CPU’s clock speed will be pushed to its maximum 1.6GHz, up 200MHz from the S III.
Other leaked specs include the 1280 x 720 resolution and the (current) installation of Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, but that’s all we know about this possible Galaxy Note successor right now. Samsung is holding an ‘Unpacked’ event at the end of August, an event that most people are expecting will be where Samsung announces the new device.
The only way to know for sure when and if the Galaxy Note II is released is to wait until August 30 for Samsung’s official announcements. Are you excited for a new Note?[GLBenchmark via PhoneArena]
