Eventual Note II refresh might come with Snapdragon 600, AnTuTu score indicates


Well, ain't the Galaxy Note II special? A leaked AnTuTu score for a Samsung GT-N7108D model number indicates that we might see the phablet refreshed with a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor.

That same model number appeared in the Bluetooth certification body listings and powered through the FCC recently, and now we have the AnTuTu score of 26901, indicating one of Qualcomm's latest and greatest processors might be in a Note II refresh, rumored to be for Asian markets at this point.

With its HD 720p display, the Note II will be Samsung's midrange phablet when the Note 3 lands, so a processor bump might be in store to reposition the device against the onslaught of other phablets these days, while still keeping the Note 3 at the top of that particular food chain.

As usual, Samsung milks the $h!t out of the same stuff with slight upgrades and call it a new device.

Samsung is there to make money, not be sympathetic. Who cares what they do, as long as the original Note 2 gets an upgrade to 4.3 and above, what does it matter? Sony are just as guilty then, releasing 3 flagships a year. If there's money to be made and if there's a market and a business case, you'll do it to stay competitive and alive, complacency one cannot afford in the world's fastest growing tech industry.

Not slight upgrades those, Sammy downgrades its products. See GSII and GSII Plus with inferior chip.

We all use plastic everyday, if you so hate it, buy an iPhone. Don't come complaining on PA.

Call Samsung out all you want, Samsung fanatics dont own this site. I think Samsungs puts out the best products and the only thing that they don't reign supreme is build. Plastic does cheapen the look and feel of a phone, but the material of the body has nothing to do with function. Increasing the curb appeal would just be a nice bonus. The only reason HTC is still in the game is because their flagship looks more premium when really it falls short of the S4 and buyers have HTCs crappy update support to look foward to. Despite how much die hard Samsung fans defend the plastic, they would not mind having a metal, carbon fiber...etc body. And, on the flipside if they ever ditch the plastic it could silence many of those Samsung neighsayers.

Why! There is nothing wrong with the original processor. A whole new phone just for moderately higher benchmark score? Ugh. So stupid, I hate "plus" versions of phones.
