Samsung GT-N7100 spotted in benchmark tests, could be the Galaxy Note II
A device called the Samsung GT-N7100 has shown up in the GLBenchmark database, PhoneArena reported. Since the GT-N7000 is the Galaxy Note, many surmise that the new model number indicates the recently rumored Galaxy Note II. The handset compared well to other devices in terms of graphics performance, which run on Snapdragon S4 Pro chips with an Adreno 320 GPU.
The GLEnvironment and System Info parts of the test reveal an Exynos 4412 processor with Mali 400 graphics onboard and runs at 1.6GHz. This mirrors that of the Galaxy S III handset, but defies earlier rumors of the presence of a Cortex-A15 chip. That the GT-N7100 outpaces the Galaxy S III in the Offscreen test, indicating the extra 0.2GHz of processing speed over the Galaxy S III.
The screen, rumored to be 5.5 inches in size, is listed as getting 1280x720 resolution, and Android 4.0.4 will be preloaded.
Samsung has just issued an invite to a press event for August 15, which may see the official debut of the Galaxy Note II.
