Take Note Of The Samsung Galaxy Note’s Benchmark Results
Samsung’s high powered and wide-screened offspring has gone through some benchmarking and it does not disappoint. This hybrid device has the qualities of a phone with the size and stylus properties of a tablet PC.
More after the break.
Dubbed by most as a “phoneblet” this device sports a whopping 5.3” Super AMOLED Plus display with a resolution of 800×1200. Where it really shines especially in the following benchmarks, is Samsung’s very own 1.4GHz Exynos SoC. The same Exynos CPU featured in the Galaxy S II (clocked at 1.2GHz), it seems this time around the chip has received an overclock of 0.2GHz. This seems to have made quite the effect as the device dominates all other dual cores on the market, except for its predecessor the Galaxy S II, in one area that is.
Among other notable features of this device it will also be sporting an outstanding 2,500 mAh battery (probably to deal with the enormous screen real estate). Its massive screen size doesn’t translate into wide dimensions either -> 145.85 x 82.95 x 9.65 mm. The most notable is the stylus pen which is built into the design and is stored on the bottom right of the G-Note.
The Galaxy Note was tested amongst the top devices in the industry; HTC Sensation, LG Optimus 3D, the Galaxy S II, and of course their respective processors 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S3, TI’s 1GHz OMAP4, and the 1.2GHz Exynos.
The G-Note has topped them all in terms of benchmarks except for its predecessor the Galaxy S II in NenaMark 2’s graphical performance tests. This is partly due to the larger resolution (800×1280 vs. 480×800) and the larger screen size (4.3” vs 5.3”) needed to be processed on the G-Note. Another benchmark to pay attention to is SunSpider’s which may indicate even faster browser performance with this iteration of the Galaxy series of devices.
No word yet on when this device will be hitting North America, however the device has been spotted passing through FCC, meaning it might not be too much longer. However across the pond in the UK rumors suggest that the device will be arriving in time for the holidays.
