Samsung's Galaxy Note 12.2 specs appear on AnTuTu, benchmark shows impressive performance

Samsung's 12.2-inch slate (SM-P905) has been on our radars for months now, and it would finally appear that the gigantic tablet is ready for prime time, or at least so it seems.

A new leak, posted on AnTuTu's blog, gives us a rather extensive look at the internals of Sammy's new device, and the view is very pretty, indeed. We're getting some very top-of-the-line specs with the Note 12.2, including a 1600x2560 pixel screen, a quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 chipset, along with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a 8MP/2MP duo of cameras at the rear and the front, respectively. If these weren't enough to spice up the deal, then an Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box might.

Or perhaps some beastly performance. Of course, as much is pretty much guaranteed when you enter Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 into the equation, yet it's worth noting that an AnTuTu score of 35,901, considering the sharp resolution, is nevertheless impressive. This tablet is no wimp, and a comparison with the Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) shows as much – the extra resolution does slow down the Note 12.2, as the configuration has to power more pixels, but 3D and RAM performance is king.

There's, unfortunately, still no word as to when we may see the Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 – previous rumors never panned out. Nevertheless, it's probably safe to assume that we'll be seeing Sammy's biggest tab yes before the year has run its course.

Everything about it is a glorified Note 10.1 2014 Edition. But I guess it gives you a choice between a big tab and a bigger tab if that really matters. I'm kind of over the release of Snapdragon 800 devices. I'm ready to start embracing ARMv8 architecture devices of next year that will undoubtedly destroy the SD800 in benchmarkings. (Apple's little dual core processor holds its own against the SD800 if that gives you any idea of what ARMv8 is capable of)

With a lot less pixels to push it will perform a lot better. The iPhone is less then 720p.

your right, but pixel density matters as well. Not to mention the bloat ware android pushes with the note 3 and 'tabs'. I deal with it every day of peoples note 3's crashing and freezing after just 2 weeks. It is on warranty backorder for us. Lovely phone, we use it to watch videos during breaks in the pods, but I would in no way want the bloat that android has become.

Article states it's clocked at 2.4GHz, but it reality it can only achieve a max of 2.3GHz...

"2.4GHz Snapdragon 800 chipset" Does that mean it's the MSM8084? Though the 1st pic shows it's the 8974

The AnTuTu picture shows it clocked at 2.3GHz and PA decides to type 2.4GHz...

At the end of the day its touchwiz. It's full of bloatware and going to slow the device down no matter what spec you have. The note 3 the powerhouse it is, still lags (did own a note 3 took it back because of the lag factor). If this 12.2 inch tablet had stock android it would be an absolute beast but Samsung just want to stuff as much useless gimmicks in it as possible.

Note 3 is better than whatever phone he has. I guarantee. These haters probably work for apple or lg or something.

Believe what you want. I have owned the note 3 and the main lag point I can prove out is when you pull the notification bar down, it stutters. Will regards to apple they are the scum of the earth, they brain wash people into think there device is almighty whens its just boring plain software running on low specs. I love android but hate company overlay themes i.e touchwiz. I currently own a nexus 4 which I still love and will be getting the nexus 5 due to my disappointment with the note 3. Don't get me wrong I loved the 1080p 5.7 inch display but for a phone that has a snapdragon 800 and i can see stutter is a shame.

It is completely confirm you don't own Note 3, but just bashing for fun. Don't feel grape is sour if you can't taste it.

^ I say you're full of BS. Note 3 DOES NOT LAG, it runs gloriously. Do not listen to this guy because he either straight up lies, either had a faulty unit


Posts: 225; Member since: Oct 10, 2013

''Even the faulty unit of note 3 wont lag" ''Even if he say Note 1 lag , i will not believe'' ...lot about note series !

I like it, I just don't know how I feel about a Tablet that's this big. I really like the 10.1, but that's probably as big as I'll go.

I would definitely consider getting this as long as build quality is up to par which I know is asking for a lot with Samsung........we will just have to see when this thing is release
