Galaxy Note II Refresh Might Be In The Works, To Pack Snapdragon 600 SoC

Here's something to cheer about for those who can't afford flagship devices, but still want a high-quality handset. Samsung might be working on a refreshed version of their uber popular Galaxy Note II 2012 phablet flagship. The refreshed Note II will pack updated internal specifications which until now, thanks to a leaked AnTuTu benchmark score, might be the Snapdragon 600 SoC.

The leaked score of 26,901 belongs to a device codenamed GT-N7108D. 'GT' tells us that it is a Samsung Galaxy device, 'N' reveals that the device in question belongs to the Note series, and '7108D' reveals that it is an updated model of the Note II which carries the codename GT-N7100.

It is possible that Samsung only revises the SoC and price, nothing else, with the refreshed Note II. That means that we might see the same 5.5" HD (1280 x 720) Super AMOLED display, 2 GB of RAM and the large battery (which often lasts two full days of moderate usage). The device might also come packed with the latest (and yet to be official) Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS.
