Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for Verizon appears on benchmark test powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 800

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for Verizon appears on benchmark test powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 800
Just the other day, we told you about an alleged trip through the AnTuTu benchmark site made by a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 unit. The unannounced phablet scored an impressive 33,082 tally with a processor clocked at 1.9GHz and with Android 4.2.2. driving Miss Daisy. At the time the thought was that this device was being powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 due to the clock speed and score. Now, there is speculation brewing that this high score was achieved using the Samsung Exynos 5420. This is the enhanced and evolved version of the Octa-core chip that Samsung said would be introduced this coming week.

Another version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, this time the SM-N900V ('V' for Verizon) took the AnTuTu benchmark test and wound up with a score of 28,786. According to the site, this version of the phablet ran with a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor under the hood. This model also had Android 4.2.2 installed.

If we've nailed the make up of the processor on each model, it certainly says something about the Samsung Exynos 5420. The two tests also would seem to indicate that the Korean manufacturer will continue the strategy used on the Samsung Galaxy S4 of using its home-grown silicon on the international version of the device and counting on a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor in the U.S.
