With the slightly surprising success of the original Samsung Galaxy Note, the Korean phone manufacturer have had their work cut out in recent months in trying to stay hush on the details of its purported successor, the Galaxy Note 2.
These efforts have seemingly been in vain however, as there has been a storm of leaks in recent weeks – some more convincing than others – which purport to be intimate details about the ‘phablet’ device.
The latest leak comes from the GL Benchmarks website via Phone Arena, and it shows the graphics power of a device called the Samsung GT-N7100. The device’s graphical power achieves scores nearly equalling those of Snapdragon S4 Pro devices, which currently lead the GL charts. It clocked at an impressive 1.4GHz.
Given that the original Note is model name is the GT-N7000, it seems very likely that this is the Galaxy Note 2 we’re looking at. According to GL, the device features an Exynos 4412 processor with Mali-400 graphics, which is the same as that contained in the Galaxy S3.
The Galaxy Note 2 is expected to be announced on 30 August at the IFA expo in Berlin. Other rumoured features of the device include an in-built touch-stylus holder and a larger screen, although the device itself is expected to be smaller than the original Note thanks to a smaller bezel.
