zWeibo and Android Beat are announcing us that Samsung made a move in China. It seems that the Galaxy Note 2 will be launched on China Mobile, but the most important news is that the device will use a Snapdragon 600 processor. The name of the device will be GT-N71008D.This move seem to be made by the China Mobile because the original processor of the device, the Exynos 4, isn't good enough for the complicated China Mobile operator. They try to make us understand that the Exynos 4 isn't supporting the carrier's TD-SCDMA, W-CDMA, TDD-LTE and FDD-LTE bands. The new Snapdragon 600 processor will support all bands and it will be the wright choice for Galaxy Note 2, as China Mobile is announcing us.So, we are all asking why is Samsung making an exception for China Mobile? The answer is really simple: China Mobile has 703 million subscribers and it is the world's number one with this thing. So Samsung has this way 703 million users which can buy the product. Another good thing to think about is that we will probably never see the product outside China. This is simple because the new Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will came out soon and the Note 2 is making a really good job with the standard processor. Also, the new model will have a Snapdragon 800 if we take rumors as truth.
