Before the Galaxy Note 3 was made official, we had exclusively revealed the dual SIM Chinese variant of the phablet, which carries the model number SM-N9002. Our sources mentioned that it would be powered by Samsung’s octa-core Exynos CPU, but it turns out that isn’t the case. The SM-N9002 has appeared in a couple of live photos, which reveal it is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor instead, with four 2.3GHz cores and the Adreno 330 GPU.
The photos also show an impressive AnTuTu benchmark score of 31,276. However, AnTuTu reports the device as having only 2.5GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, so it’s likely this is a prototype device instead of a retail unit, unless Samsung will be taking away half of the default storage in exchange for adding an extra SIM slot (not that there’s no relation between the two). As for the RAM, 2.5GB will likely be the total RAM available to use, as the rest would be dedicated to the system.
