The Korean company has denied its Galaxy Note 3 superphone exaggerates its performance when it detects well-known benchmarks running, as was claimed yesterday in an extensive, well-documented report on the website Ars Technica.
Kevin Packingham, the chief product officer for the mobile division of Samsung Electronics, who was involved in introducing several of Samsung’s popular Galaxy devices, has left the company.
The reasons for Mr. Packingham’s departure were unclear. Samsung’s spokespeople declined to provide details on whether his exit was voluntary. The departure was announced internally as recently as Tuesday.
Tuesday was October 1st.
That was the day Samsung’s benchmark cheating was revealed.
