Samsung officially announced the Galaxy Note 2 yesterday at the IFA event in Berlin, and now thanks to Korean blog SmartDevice, we have benchmark results of Quadrant, Antutu, and Nenamark benchmark software for the device.
Considering the Galaxy Note 2 runs a 1.6 GHz quad-core Exynos processor as well as Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, it beat the Galaxy S3 quite easily. In the Quadrant test, the Note 2 scored 6043 points compared to the 5200 score of the Galaxy S3 running Android 4.0. Quadrant can often give different and not so accurate results, but at stock frequencies and stock firmware, the Note 2 gained quite a good score, no doubt a result of the beefed up Exynos processor as well as the performance improvements in Jelly Bean.
In the AnTuTu benchmark (not pictured), the Note 2 was said to achieve a score of 13,500 compared to the score of 10,000 of the Galaxy S3. In the NenaMark graphics benchmark, the device gained a score of 55.8 fps thanks to the powerful Mali-400 MP GPU ticking away inside.
Now, the benchmarks by no means indicate the real-world performance, but judging by the benchmarks the Galaxy Note 2 is another powerhouse out of the Samsung factories, and coupled with the exclusive S Pen functionality, it’s sure to sell just as well as the original Galaxy Note did. Not to mention that it also runs the latest version of Android out of the box, which should be another major selling point in the world of Android fragmentation where even an Android camera runs a newer version of Android than most devices out there.
