The Samsung Galaxy Note II with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chip has been just officially announced by China Mobile. In addition to GSM and WCDMA, this variant brings support for additional network frequencies like TD-LTE, FDD-LTE and TD-SCDMA. This new variant shares the rest of its specs with the original Galaxy Note II. The quad core CPU is now clocked at 1.9 GHz with the Adreno 320 GPU replacing the Mali-400 GPU.
The Galaxy Note II was originally launched in September last year with the Samsung Exynos 4412 quad core processor. The launch of this variant comes as the rumor mill is abuzz with reports of Samsung launching a Snapdragon 800 variant of the upcoming Galaxy Note 3 smartphone. Samsung is reportedly in a fix over the Note 3, mostly with regards to the screen size. But as far as the SoC is concerned, we can expect Samsung to pack the newly launched Exynos 5420 for global variants and the Snapdragon 800 for the American variants.
