Although initially it was announced as a dual core device at MWC 2012, the Samsung Galaxy Note will actually get a quad core processor now. Recent benchmarks have shown the presence of a 1.4 GHz 4 core CPU on the slate and now a new set of benchmarks reveals further details.

The CPU is an Exynos 4412, this time shown as a 1.5GHz ticker, while the Mali GPU doesn’t seem to be the Mali 400 MP one from the Galaxy S III. This is a mystery graphics chipset, that has me drooling at the perspective of playing N.O.V.A 3 on this device. This could be a sign that the Mali-604T is finally here, after a long wait and speculation. The results of the benchmark are also better than those of the Galaxy S III, so it’s a good sign. I think that the Galaxy Note 10.1 will have everything one needs from a modern tablet.

It has kickass business/drawing/planning features through the S Pen + S Note app and all that suite available on the device, plus this quad core CPU and maybe even a high resolution display, although I know nothing about that. Would be nice if they offered us at least a Full HD screen…

    Isn’t this just a GPU bench though?…
