New Galaxy Note 3 benchmark shows Snapdragon 800 & Android 4.3


Benchmarks are not the best way to find out how capable a device is under certain games and powerful apps, especially when the manufacturers ship programs to make sure the cores inside a phone run faster when benchmark apps are open.

A new Galaxy Note 3 benchmark may have revealed more than its power though, with the AnTuTu test showing the new phablet with a 2.3GHz processor, which we can only assume is the Snapdragon 800 chip. It is also running Android 4.3, the newest version of Jelly Bean.


One problem with this benchmark is the actual benchmark, the Galaxy Note 3 scored 22k in the test, much lower than the LG G2 benchmark leak at almost 30k. This is still one of the best phones in terms of performance, but almost 8k lower than the LG G2.

We are unsure why this is, both could be false or one could be false, but assuming both are true either Samsung or LG must be hiding something. Both ship with the Snapdragon 800 and 3GB of RAM, we cannot see how there is a big difference.

The problem with trying to say it is a different processor is the clock speed, no mobile processor on the market currently runs at 2.3GHz, with the Snapdragon 600 clocking in at 1.9GHz on the HTC One.

We will have to wait and see for official results at IFA 2013, we hope the Galaxy Note 3 is the powerhouse that has been leaked in the past few weeks.
