The benchmark scores of Samsung GT-N7100 have appeared on GLBencmark database. The device has powerful graphics processing at almost the same level as a device powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 with Adreno 320 GPU.
Considering that the first Galaxy Note is GT-N7000, it most likely that GT-N7100 is Galaxy Note II. Galaxy Note II is rumored to come with a bit larger display than its predecessor, but with slimmer bezel. So the size is not too much different.
System Info and GLEnvironment reveal that the upcoming Galaxy Note will use Exynos 4412 chip with Mali-400 GPU like Galaxy S III. However Samsung overclocks the maximum frequency to 1.6 GHz to give better performance for its phablet. The processor inside Galaxy S III is only clocked at 1.4 GHz. The use of Exynos chip indicates that Samsung won’t use Cortex A-15 processor. The processor will be saved for next generation smartphone or tablet.
Samsung changes the aspect ratio from 16:10 to 16:9. Consequently Galaxy Note II will have lower resolution display, 1280 x 720 pixels, compared to 1280 x 800 on GT-N7000. It’s still unclear whether the Korean manufacturer will use Super AMOLED or Super AMOLED Plus for the new Galaxy Note. We should wait until the official announcement of Samsung Galaxy Note II at IFA 2012 event held in Berlin on August 30, 2012.
