Galaxy Note III With Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Appears In Benchmarks
Now that Samsung’s Galaxy S4 launch is out of the way, phablet fans can look forward to the next-generation Galaxy Note. Speculation surrounding the device and its features has been rife in recent months, and that’s only going to increase as we near closer to the handset’s launch.
Especially when we see purported benchmarks of the device popping up online.
A device believed to be the Galaxy Note III, with the “GT-N7200” model number, has appeared in AnTuTu benchmarks running the upcoming Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system. It has an unknown 1.6GHz processor — believed to be Samsung’s new octa-core Exynos 5 chip.
According to recent rumors, that’ll be accompanied by 3GB of RAM, and an even larger 1080p display, possibly around 5.9 inches in size.
Now, we must point out that it’s incredibly easy to fake benchmarks like these, so there’s every possibility that these are not genuine. However, there’s also a chance that they are indeed real, and so they’re worth taking a look at.
The GT-N700 model number certainly seems accurate (the Galaxy Note II had the GT-N7100 model number), as do the specifications. Its Android 4.3 OS seems plausible, too; Samsung’s been working closely with Google to bring the latest Android platforms to its latest devices, so seeing 4.3 Jelly Bean on the Galaxy Note III would be no surprise.
The Galaxy Note III is still several months away, however. We don’t expect to see it until around August — just before IFA 2013 in Berlin — like its predecessors.
