Rumors about the Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 tablet have started surfacing earlier last month, with various reports suggesting that it might have been originally envisioned as a Nexus tablet or that it might touchdown in the US via Verizon. In any case, today we’re not here to discuss about when and where the slate might hit the shelves, but to talk about what will allegedly make the slate tick.
There have been (and still are) a lot of unknowns surrounding the hardware specs of the Note 12.2, but thanks to AnTuTu, we now seem to have a pretty accurate idea on what to expect. Check out the details below.
Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 Specs Exposed by AnTuTu?
Earlier today, detailed hardware specifications of the Note 12.2 have been revealed by AnTuTu. While various rumors have indicated that the tablet might pack an Exynos 5 CPU or even an Intel Atom processor, according to our latest findings, a Snapdragon 800 and Adreno 330-powered Note 12.2 has made an appearance on AnTuTu.
Aside from the CPU and graphics chip, the slate seems to pack 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. The tablet also seems to deliver a 1600 x 2560 display (rumored to be a Sharp IGZO panel), while running on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box. In the media department, the tablet allegedly boasts an 8 MP main camera, complemented by a front-facing 2 MP sensor.
On the face of it, the Note 12.2 and the Note 10.1 2014 are quite similar in many regards, aside from the screen size and CPU (assuming that the Note 12.2 will not be offered in both Snapdragon 800 and Exynos form, just as the 10.1 is). As expected, the Snapdragon 800-powered 12.2 inch slate delivers different benchmark scores than the Exynos-powered 10.1 Note – at least according to AnTuTu.
As seen in the graph above, performance-wise the Exynos-powered Note 10.1 (2014) handles integer and floating-point CPU operations more successfully, while the Note 12.2 delivers better results in 3D processing and RAM tests.
In any case, these are synthetic benchmarks, and based on these numbers alone, we can’t really form a solid opinion on the final product. Let’s leave it as it is for now, but stick around and we’ll bring you up to speed as soon as we find out more about the Note 12.2. Until then, feel free to share your thoughts below.
