Question [Q] Samsung galaxy note shows conflicting device number

I recently bought the Unlocked Galaxy note 1 from eBay(India). It has conflicting device numbers written on back of the device and one on the "About Phone" menu. On back of the device its written as n7000 and "About Phone" menu shows it as "SHV-e160K", I need some help in identifying whether the device is fake? (From build of the device it looks genuine Samsung ),

This phone also has some other issues as below
1. It does not display the the career range although I was able to register to local Vodafone network and I am able to have incoming and outgoing calls. Also 3G works pretty well.
2. About phone menu sows Baseband version :-Unknown
3. NFC unable to detect the NFC tags
4. Samsung kies software not able to detect the device
5. Many Samsung softwares installed on the device fail to update saying software not signed by Samsung

I have replacement of the phone in transit, Once I receive the new device, are there any steps which can help me confirm genuineness of the device ?

Also is there any way to confirm if 4G works ,without having to insert 4G sim card?

You are the owner of a korean versison of the Samsung Galaxy Note now. Different hardware. No own forum here. Search for "e160K" and you'll find a lot of threads related to "SHV or SHE e160K".

Thanks, I had misspelled the number,
How can I know if this is really SHV-e160K instead of n7000, because back of the phone shows number as n7000, When I search with IMEI number on google , it shows device number as n7000 although phone info shows 1.5GHz processor(which is specific to SHV). Does this device carry IMEI number registered against n7000?

Use quadrant standard app to check the cpu info. If it's a qualcomm based cpu then it's a Korean note. If the back cover has n7000, then it could be possible that the motherboard inside might have changed.

As I checked using quandrant standard app, it shows details as below

GPU [Screenshot attached GPU.jpg]
Vendor: Qualcomm
Renderer Adreno(TM) 220
Vresion: OpenGL ES 2.0

CPU [Screenshot attached CPU.jpg]
Name: Armv7 Processor rev2(v7l)
Current Freq: 1512MHz
Max frex: 1512Mhz
Min Freq: 192 MHz
Cores : 2
Architecture: 7
BogoMIPs:13.54
Hardware: QCT MSM8X60 FUSION FFA
Revision: 2

GPU looks inline with the Qualcomm processor, I am not sure about CPU version as Samsung website do not mention the version of CPU for SHV-e160K.

Maybe its the false label behind the device, but it looks suspicious..?
