The latest report suggests that the next Samsung Galaxy Note III will be powered by Qualcomm’s top-notch Snapdragon 800 chipset instead of the octa-core Exynos.
This may happen because either Samsung has problems manufacturing the Exynos Processor or it thinks that the Snapdragon 800 is faster.
The Snapdragon 800 chipset has a quad-core Krait 400 processor that can be clocked up to 2.3GHz. Adreno 330 GPU is in charge of the graphics and it supports up to 4K video playback and recording. Snapdragon 800 also comes with a new generation LTE chip that supports category 4 (Up to 300Mbps downlink, up to 75Mbps uplink) and 7.1-channel sound.
Samsung Galaxy Note III is also said to pack at least 6″ Super AMOLED display, 2+ GB of RAM, a 13+ MP camera and naturally, an S-Pen.
