Samsung Galaxy Note 3 spotted running Android Jelly Bean 4.3

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is out there and whoever is fortunate enough to have one has been running benchmark tests to find out just how capable it is.

Using the popular AnTuTu benchmarking app, somebody out there has been testing a device by the model number of GT-N7200. The original Galaxy Note was the GT-N7000 and the Galaxy Note 2 is the GT-N7100, so that the model number would in theory point to the third evolution of the Note.

The results, of which a screenshot was captured and then leaked via GSMInsider, reveal that the Note 3 contains a 1.6GHz processor of unknown make or type and Android 4.3. Google is yet to officially launch Android 4.3, although we’re told it will be a minor update to 4.2.2, will remain entitled ‘Jelly Bean’ and will arrive next month.

Unfortunately we’ve learnt in the past that benchmarking results are easy to fake, so we’re going to suggest taking this information with a dash of salt. However, Samsung has launched both Note phones with the very latest version of Android in the past, so the Note 3 running Android 4.3 would also make sense.

Recent rumours suggest that the Galaxy Note 3 will feature an upgraded display at 5.9-inches, along with a bump up to 3GB in RAM. We’re also likely to see some of the air gesture features from the Galaxy S4 make the jump to the Note 3, along with Samsung’s new TouchWiz user interface, features and apps.

With Google rumoured to launch Android 4.3 next month we could well see the Note 3 go official in July – here’s hoping!
