Following a leaked image of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo earlier today, @SamMobiles is back with another tweet that claims to have identified the mysterious hexa-core processor that will power the upcoming phablet.
SamMobile also confirms that two variants of the Galaxy Note 3 Neo are expected: The SM-N750 and SM-N7505.Whereas the former will support HSPA+, the latter will support LTE connectivity. It now appears that Samsung will use one of its own SOCs, the new Exynos 5260, for the LTE model at least. Whether the SM-N750 will also use the new Exynos 5260 is not clear at this point.
Previous reports suggested the Exynos 5260 would come with four 1.3GHz and 2 1.7GHz cores. New AnTuTu benchmarks suggest it could instead come with six 1.3GHz cores. With support for Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP), the six cores will be able to run simultaneously as you can see below. An ARM Mali-T624 GPU looks to be taking care of graphics chores.
Based on these scores, we can expect the performance of the Exynos 5260 to be on par with that of the Samsung Exynos 5410 and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600.
