Snapdragon 600 powered Samsung Note II official

29 July, 2013 Samsung


There were rumors floating around the internets a few weeks ago saying that Samsung was working on a variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note II that used Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 600 chip instead of the company's own Exynos 4 Quad. Well, turns out those rumors were true.


China Mobile, the world's largest operator, just announced a device called the GT-N7108D on Weibo (the Chinese version of Twitter), and yes, it uses the new Snapdragon. Why would Samsung make this variant? Because it'll be able to support the operator's complicated network, which right now uses TD-SCDMA, W-CDMA, TDD-LTE, and FDD-LTE.


We think there's really no reason to bring it to more markets - the Exynos 4 chip does a pretty darn good job. Not to mention the fact that the Galaxy Note 3 should be announced pretty soon, which is also rumored to have a Snapdragon 800 chip. It'd be almost pointless to bring a Snapdragon 600 powered Galaxy Note 2 to other markets with that in mind. 


What do you think?
