80% of all cool phones of the year have been launched and the rest probably include the Galaxy Note III and iPhone 5S, plus maybe a Nexus. Well, the Note III fits rather in the phablet category and today we’ve got a fresh rumor related to it: a benchmark that’s supposed to be attached to it leaked on the web.
The Note III is listed as the N7200 in AnTuTu and seeing how the Note II is the N7100, it all makes sense. Supposedly the real deal is the GT-N7200 model with Android 4.3 on it and a CPU clocked at 1.6 GHz. That’s the same frequency as the one of the Exynos 5 Octa CPU on the Galaxy S4. The new Note scored lower than the Galaxy S4 in AnTuTu, but we can’t tell if it’s running finished software or not.
Not even Android 4.3 is finished as far as we know. Plus, you should know that Notes usually come with overclocked CPUs compare to the Galaxy S models from their respective year. In other news, the Xiaomi Mi3 also appeared in the same benchmark, with its Snapdragon 800 2.1 GHz CPU. It scored a scary 80k points, almost 3 times more than the best smartphones on the market.
