We can’t wait to get our hands on the upcoming Galaxy Note III, but until Samsung unveils the rumored device this fall all we have to go on is a few blurry photos and the occasional information leak. Today, we’ve got the latter for you in the form of a benchmark published by GFXBench allegedly confirming some of the phablets specs.

The Galaxy Note III is expected to sport a 5.7-inch display, and now we’re seeing (yet again) that the screen’s resolution may measure out to 1920 x 1080 pixels. GFXBench also claims that the phablet will come equipped with a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3GHz, an Adreno 330 GPU, and run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, though this test model appears to be running Android 4.2.2. The benchmark also shows the Note III running a graphics test with a frame rate of 25.9 fps, putting it just under the Galaxy S4 (26.2 fps) but ahead of the NVIDIA Shield (24.3 fps) and Sony’s Xperia Z Ultra (23.1 fps).

Samsung still hasn’t confirmed the Galaxy Note III, but for the past two years the company has released a new Galaxy Note device during the IFA expo in Berlin. We’re guessing that this year will be no different. Expect the South Korean tech giant to send out invitations for a special event in early September sometime in the near future.
