Snapdragon 600 for Samsung Galaxy Note II
Note II Snapdragon 600

While everyone is waiting for the Galaxy Note III, Samsung plans to update the current Note II with Snapdragon 600 SoC.

The Samsung Galaxy Note II Android casino monster was released last autumn and has been extremely popular ever since. Experts and users agree that the time for the successor is approaching rapidly, but before the Note III becomes a reality, Samsung will update with Note II with a Snapdragon 600 chip instead of the original Exynos 4412.

The upgraded version of the mobile casino games tamer was spotted in the AnTuTu benchmark results database, under the model name N7108D. The Note II is known as the N7100, making this particular rumor very believable. However, the D letter suggests the device will be launched on the Chinese market and there’s no way of knowing if it will ever hit the international arena.

On top of the benchmark test results, there are also some specification of the mobile casino tool: the CPU is clocked at 1.9GHz, similar to the one inside the Galaxy S4, and the phablet is powered by the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

As for the tests itself, the upgraded version scored 26,901 points, which is way above the currently available Note II with 13,562 points in the same test. However, Samsung is yet to confirm plans for the upgrade, and the pricing as well as release date information will be unavailable until that happens.
