On the Android side of the tech war, the leader Samsung is preparing a new high-end device to bite into Apple's share of the market. According to recent information, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 could have even more impressive performance than we expect.
As Nordic Hardware recently found out, the Galaxy Note 10.1 will hide under its hood, a quad-core Exynos 4412 chip coupled with the Mali-604T GPU. If the rumour is confirmed, Samsung will release a tablet with double the performance of current models.
Earlier this year, visitors at Mobile World Congress 2012 were able to get their hands on early models of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. At the time, the device featured a dual-core processor with Exynos 4210 SoC circuitry.
Last week, the performance for a mysterious device, called Samsung IMM76D.N8000XXALD6 surfaced online. The same impossible code was previously used for a dual-core tablet powered by an Exynos 4210 processor and the Mali-400MP graphics circuit.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 fits the description here. This time around, the code had a different benchmark result, indicating a quad-core 4412 processor.
Exynos 4412 is the chip that powers Samsung's latest smartphone, the Galaxy S3. By all indications, this is so far, the fastest device on the market.
