Galaxy Note III LTE (SM-N9005) appears in benchmark
The Galaxy Note III is becoming less adept at keeping itself hidden from the public eye as we approach its rumored September 4 unveiling, and now the LTE variant of the phablet has shown up in an AnTuTu benchmark, confirming once again that it will be powered by the Snapdragon 800 processor (for the LTE variants).
The model number is listed as SM-N9005, which is expected to be the LTE version of the phone, the device is running Android 4.3 and the clock speed is around the 2.3GHz mark, similar to other devices using the Snapdragon 800. However, it’s worth noting that the score is decidedly much lower than what the Snapdragon chipset is capable of, so either the test was done on an extremely early prototype, or someone has pulled a few strings to fake the benchmark.
The Galaxy Note III is expected to have an octa-core Exynos 5420/quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, 1080p display of 5.7-6″, a 13-megapixel camera possibly with optical image stabilization, LTE-A (LTE-Advanced) connectivity, and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with an improved TouchWiz UI.
