Reported benchmarks for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 appeared just before Samsung is expected to launch the device. Noted mobile insider @evleaks tweeted out a screenshot of the device’s AnTuTu benchmark score and it’s a whopper: 24497. That’s near the top range of all devices in the AnTuTu database. What makes the device tick so fast? The chip and RAM according to the leak.
A quad-core chip running at 2.3 GHz is quite powerful and that configuration would surely be helped by 2.5 GB of memory; particularly when multiple Android applications are running. The display is allegedly a smidge larger than that of the Galaxy Note 2 but will see a resolution bump up to full 1080p.
I’ll be heading over to the New York City location for Samsung’s IFA event shortly so I can confirm the specs and possibly get a hands on to test performance. My colleague David Meyer is in Berlin covering Samsung from there. We’ll be live-blogging together at 9:30am PT, so join us as we find out how accurate the leaks are. Oh, I think there’s supposed to be some kind of smartwatch thingie too.
