Samsung Galaxy Note 3 reportedly scores close to 28,000 on AnTuTu with Android 4.3

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 reportedly scores close to 28,000 on AnTuTu with Android 4.3
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 allegedly went through the AnTuTu benchmark site, which not only left us with some clues about its performance, but also has given us some possible specs to chew on as we wait to hear some more information about the third iteration of this series. If this is all legit, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 scored an outstanding 27,914 on the site's Benchmark test while running a 1.6GHz processor and sporting Android 4.3. What we don't know is if the silicon under the hood is the Samsung Exynos 5 Octa-core. The high score could indicate that this is exactly what is powering the device. After all, the nearly 28,000 tallied by the Samsung Galaxy Note III would put the phablet slightly above the 27,417 scored by the Exynos powered Samsung Galaxy S4 on the same test

Having Android 4.3 installed out of the box would seem legit enough. After all, Google is graciously holding back on Android 5.0 so that manufacturers can update current models to Android 4.2 and not have their phones 2 updates behind. As a result, new models getting released in the summer to perhaps as late as the middle of the fourth quarter, will probably be powered by Android 4.3. Heck, it's even possible that we might not see Android 5.0 until early next year.

The model number on the AnTuTu test was GT-N7200. That is right in line with the GT-N7000 seen on the original Samsung GALAXY Note and the GT-N7100 on the Samsung GALAXY Note II. In addition, a picture alleged to have been taken by the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 had the GT-N7200 model number listed on the EXIF data.

Usually when we start seeing a model number listed on things like EXIF data and Benchmark tests, it means that we are getting closer to the unveiling of a new device. Recently Samsung executive J.K. Shin said that we would see a 5.9 inch Samsung Galaxy Note 3 unveiled this September at IFA Berlin. EXIF data and benchmark tests can be faked though, so let's keep an open mind about the device for now.

Little guys have little pockets. If you don't hit puberty in time for release you may have to consider a murse.

Cool the Lenovo K900 scores right under 28000 with only 2 cores, is very high build quality, full body metal, amazing camera and is very thin (6.9mm). Its sad the companies making high end android phones actually have good build quality while a vast majority of non Chinese manufacturer have cheap plastic phones.

I would rather own a non chinese phone any day of the week. Again I don't reward copycats and the vast majority of them don't have a single idea that was their own when coming up with a design.

It would of been the perfect phone if it had a quad core intel silvermont cpu and a steel or magnesium alloy body. Then it would of scored a 50000+ and not feel like a cheap brick.

You're right, the HTC one does feel like a cheap brick.

Aluminum is a cheap and weak metal. Nothing premium about it at all, not any better than the poly carbonate used on every other phone and its far easier to damage.

I agree with this. I've seen aluminum phones with all types of dings. In addition, reception seems compromised.

If I felt like throwing you a carrot troll wannabe I could speak of the real cheap phone but I'm not because I don't really care what your one sided mind thinks

Not going to happen anytime soon and Samsungs variant of OLED is AMOLED and Amoled has given oled a bad name because it can't reproduce natural colors very well while a real oled is more accurate than IPS and more power efficient,

So your phones going to cost thousands of dollars? You are aware flexible screens are insanely expensive right now.

"Samsungs variant of OLED is AMOLED..." AMOLED is not a variant of OLED it is a type of screen. AMOLED = Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode "...while a real oled..." OLED used in AMOLED screens is real. "...oled is more accurate than IPS..." OLED stands for type of diode while IPS stand for type of matrix so how you can compare two different things...

what about oled contrast issues that cause some colors to look washed out??

I don't understand. If most phones are on 4.1 and Google releases is that any different from them just releasing 5.0? Could it be that 5.0 just isn't done yet and that's why Google is doing the stopgap 4.3? B/c it makes literally no sense to introduce a new version that wasn't in the mix before in order to give time for manufacturers to upgrade. It just means one more version of Android that they would have to upgrade to before 5.0......which means more work and ending up further behind. Unless in this magical world the phones magically upgrade themselves? Because if so, take me to that world please.

I couldn't have said it any better. I don't get it, either. Whether you call it 4.3 or 5.0, it's still a new Android version. Therefore, manufacturers will still be 2 versions behind.

I Still would get the HTC one or the rumored butter fly 2 over the galaxy note 3

Intel is starting to creep into the phone market they just need 1 major phone maker and its all over for arm. Arm will be dead in high end phones by this time next year. I would bet money HTC will have the first intel powered phone from a major manufacturer in the US. People don't understand, you need to use a phone powered by intel it is a night and day difference from the snapdragon 600 everything is a huge amount faster and atoms are low end. Wait 2-3 years till they start puttingi5/i7s in phones.
