Samsung’s behemoth Galaxy Note 2, suspected to sport a 5.5-inch display, will reportedly pack a 1.6GHz Exynos 4 Quad chip — the same chip found in the company’s international Galaxy S III smartphone, just bumped up from 1.4GHz.
Expected for an unveil at IFA, the inclusion of the Exynos was discovered in a GLBenchmark, which has abruptly been pulled from the site. Could that mean the listing was, in fact, for the Note 2? Let’s consider the rest of the evidence.
According to PocketNow, the model number for the previous Note was GT-N7000. The benchmark listed the unknown device as GT-7100. In addition to the mention of a 1.6GHz Exynos 4 Quad, the benchmark data also mentions a 720p display, as opposed to the original Note’s 1280 x 800 screen.
The Note 2 is still shrouded in plenty of mystery. If the device does get announced at IFA, just as its brethren did the year before, we’re a little over a month from getting our hands on the monster Android handset. We’ll be there to bring you a hands-on, so stay tuned!
