We have seen the first Galaxy Note model being released last year, so we are already waiting for a new model in the series. Rumors about the Note 3 already piled up and we can't wait to see what Samsung has in its sleeve. However it seems that the Korean manufacturer is not yet over with its current flagship 'phablet', as a leaked benchmark result is show a Note 2 running on a Snapdragon 600 and not an Exynos 4412. The leaked benchmark results show a device named GT-N7108D, in contrast with the original Note 2 dubbed GT-N7100. Supposedly it runs on Android 4.2.2 and scored an impressive 26901 in AnTuTU. The same test showed that the original Note 2 scored only around 13000 points. This is half the result, so we can assume the new model runs on a Snapdragon 600, the same as the Galaxy S4 International. The device's model number, N7108D hints at an Asian market release as well as the benchmark results that are sent from China. So we can assume that this will probably be an Asian device with no release in the Western market. We cannot say for sure though anything about this alleged device as Samsung hasn't made any statements or references about a refreshed version of the Galaxy Note 2. Though it would be interesting to see this model, I cannot say for sure I understand why Samsung would want to release it. Source.
