Samsung Galaxy Note III GT-N7200 Spotted in AnTuTu with Android 4.3

Following the launch of Galaxy S 4 earlier this year, Samsung Electronics is expected to make official a new handset in its Galaxy Note lineup later this year, and rumor has it that this device has just emerged in the AnTuTu benchmark.

The device, supposedly called Galaxy Note III, should feature model number GT-N7200 when released, and has made it to the headlines quite a few times lately. According to a post on GSMInsider, the Galaxy Note III GT-N7200 scored over 27,000 points in said benchmarking application, yet it remains to be seen if the results are legit.

Expected to become official in September, the smartphone is said run Android 4.3 and to pack the same plastic casing as Galaxy S4 before it, though it will lack the flexible display that users have been long dreaming of. Stay tuned for more on this.

AMD Drops to Fourth Place on Processor Market

Market analyst firm IC Insight has finished its study of the year 2012, and discovered a surprising thing about the top rankings in terms of total semiconductor sales throughout the 12-month period.

Long story short, AMD came up short compared to three other companies. While Intel came first, as expected, Advanced Micro Devices did not make second spot, or even third. Those positions went to Qualcomm and Samsung, respectively, as shown in the table above. Thus, AMD is on fourth place, after suffering a 21% drop in microprocessor sales.

Speaking of which, Intel also lost, 1% on-year, while Qualcomm's sales grew 28% and Samsung's shipments soared 78%. Samsung has definitely managed to sell lots of mobile chips. In 2013, things aren't looking up for AMD. Already, Q1 has showed the steepest decline ever in a single quarter.
