Samsung Galaxy Note III Benchmarks Hint at Phone of Ultimate Power

By Gary Cutlack on at

Samsung's Galaxy Note III, images of which have been leaked all over the internet for the past few months, has supposedly been benchmarked in something approaching its final hardware and software form. The numbers are quite impressive.

The Galaxy Note III clocked 24,497 is the popular AnTuTu benchmarking tool, substantially higher than the 21k or thereabouts usually scored by Samsung's current Galaxy S4 flagship. The images supplied by the tester also confirm the Note III is running on Android 4.3, plus prolific mobile spec leaker EVLeaks claims the big phone will arrive powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core chipset and 2.5GB RAM, helping it output to a 1080 x 1920 display.
