Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Phablet Gets Benchmarked

Yesterday, at Samsung Mobile Unpacked event within IFA Berlin 2012 trade show, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 phablet was officially unveiled.

Besides a new S-Pen and a revised body style that follows the new “Inspired by nature” design language introduced with the Samsung Galaxy S3, the Galaxy Note 2 also received an overclocked CPU.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 boasts a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display with 1,280 x 736 pixels resolution, quad-core Exynos 4412 chipset based on four Cortex A9 cores clocked at 1.6 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, Mali-400 MP GPU and 16 or 32 GB of internal storage.

In the press-dedicated area, the journalists have performed the first benchmark tests on the new Galaxy Note 2, and the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean-powered phablet didn’t disappointed.

In Quadrant Standard, Samsung Galaxy Note scored 6,043 points compared to Galaxy S3′s (running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich) 5,200 points. The fact that Note 2 is pre-loaded with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean was a decisional factor, though. In AnTuTu Benchmark the phablet overscored SGS3 with 3,500, getting 13,500 points compared to S3′s 10,000. The NenaMark2 score for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 was of 55.8 fps.

Well, the final results might be even better. I don’t know whether test samples (early preview) terminals or final versions of Samsung Galaxy Note 2 have been showcased at IFA Berlin 2012.

On the other hand, the benchmark results are higher than on any other smartphone, but I would enjoy seeing a comparison between Samsung’s most powerful smartphone and the yet-unreleased LG Optimus G, that will come with the mighty quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU.
