Lately, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has been the target of a lot of rumors, from predictable (it will be announced in September … dooh) to almost unbelievable ones (a Note 3 version will come with a flexible / indestructible display and will feature premium build quality … yeah, right).
As far as the CPU goes, various reports have claimed that the Note will come in two variants: one sporting an Exynos 5 OCTA CPU and one with Snapdragon 800 on-board. Well, now we might have some more info to go on as what seems to be a Note 3 Antutu Benchmark report has surfaced.
According to the picture above, a Hong Kong Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N900) equipped with a 1.9 GHz CPU and Android 4.2.2 has achieved a 33082 score.
Now let’s talk a bit about the CPU. Since it’s clocked at 1.9 GHz and the Exynos 5 OCTA officially sports a 1.6-1.8 GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A15 and a 1.2-1.4 GHz quad-core ARM Cortex A7 pair, chances are this is not a Samsung manufactured CPU.
Now this could either be a Snapdragon 600 (up to 1.9 GHz quad-core Krait CPU) or a Snapdragon 800 (up to 2.3 GHz Krait 400 CPU). Since the result (33082 points) is on par with other Snapdragon 800 benchmarks, we’re inclined to think that the benchmarked Note 3 is powered by the aforementioned SoC.
Would you prefer an Exynos 5 Octa or a Snapdragon 800 powered Note 3? Let us know in the comments section.
