A new report has surfaced this morning that is leading industry analyst to believe that Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note III will be powered by Qualcomm's not yet released flagship CPU, the Snapdragon 800. This is a big change from the previously poised octa-core Samsung Exynos 5450.




While this move may seem a bit backwards to some, this is actually how Samsung likes to do business when it comes to their Galaxy Note line of products. They first try to implement their fastest processor, but if it is not fast enough they quickly switch over to a third-party chipset to ensure their phablets and tablets are the best available.




For those not familiar with the Snapdragon 800, here is a little refresher. Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 is based on the Krait 400 CPU architecture, and is a quad-core CPU can deliver up to 10% faster performance than competition when clocked as high as 2.3 GHz. Featuring the new Adreno 330 GPU, it will bring a near 50% increase in performance over the previous generation Adreno 320 GPU. The SoC also supports 4K video recording and playback.
