There were rumors floating around the internets a few weeks ago saying that Samsung was working on a variant of the 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.
Should you be jealous?
Not really, the Note III, rumored to have a Snapdragon 800, is coming out soon.
