Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 Benchmarks Tease Performance

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 17 comments

Korean electronics manufacturer Samsung has been eager to keep itself on the upper end of the market, releasing yearly new versions of its products more frequently than even Apple. And with the latest version of Galaxy Note 10.1, the company might be looking to offer up roughly the same specs in a larger form factor.

Benchmarking site AnTuTu has comparisons between the 12.2 and the 10.1, along with some fairly detailed specs.

Allegedly, the tablet would be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974, which is the same SoC running in the American version of the Galaxy Note 10.1. Additionally, the new tablet would be packing 3 GB of RAM, at least 32 GB of storage, and the 2560 x 1600 resolution we'd expect from such a monstrously large piece of hardware.

    What exactly does this article have to do with the performance of the Note 12.2? There's no benchmark results at all.... Can we get article titles that accurately indicate what the articles are actually about?

    12.2"? They going to include a back pack to carry the freakin thing.

    You have the SAME lame comment about ANYTHING bigger than what crApple offers. Your posts are always useless.

    BTW, crApple is now working on a 12 inch tablet as well which you will hail as magical once it comes out!

    They're doing the best to hide the benchmarking results, but they are in the article, under the AnTuTu hyperlink. :)

    The benchmarks aren't that impressive, they trade blows, it would more meaningful if the compared it to the LTE variant of the note 10.1 which uses the snap dragon 800.

    Either way, if they drop this before January I will definitely be buying one, an S-Pen in a calculus class will be awesome. If not I'll just wait for a refresh of the lenovo helix

    12.2"? Wow... I own both 10.2 and 7" tablets. I use the 7" more often because it's easier to carry around.

    Well Samsung plays the e-peen game with benchmark numbers, again. Last time it was caught boosting benchmarks, and likely they've done it again.

    I currently use a Galaxy S4 GE and I love it, but I have to take Samsung's benchmarks with a rather large pinch of salt...
    Good thing benchmarks don't actually mean a lot (if anything), since hardware is light-years ahead of current software offerings.

    Not 4K. <16 GB of ram. <4.2 ghz. Unsuitable for angry birds and sound hounding songs. I'll look elsewhere thank you very much.

    This is a good size imo (i like 12 & 13 inch convertibles). The S-Pen is perfect - couldnt be any more accurate. I've planned to buy this if the price is set below clouds.
