The Galaxy Note III is expected to launch this September, but Samsung may not be quite done with the Note II. According to a recently spotted FCC document published earlier this month, the South Korean company is working on a refreshed model of the second-generation phablet with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor under the hood.
According to the handset’s benchmark, the phone’s processor is clocked at 1.9GHz and runs Android 4.2.2. The FCC filing notes that the device supports Wi-Fi 802.11ac 5GHz, which is currently only featured in flagship devices like the Galaxy S4 and the HTC One.
A leaked AnTuTu benchmark for the mystery smartphone (model number GT-N7108D) also scored 26,901 points, which would put it above even the Galaxy S4 when it comes to processing power. However, the Note II is rumored to launch exclusively on China Mobile’s TD-LTE network, meaning it won’t be available in the rest of the world. Don’t despair though, the Galaxy Note III is expected to sport an octo-core processor when it launches this fall.
