Galaxy Note 4 benchmarks hint at Snapdragon 805 processor, QHD display
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will launch with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 805 processor and a super sharp Quad HD display, according to leaked AnTuTu benchmarks. There will also be a second variant powered by a new Samsung Exynos chip, which is based on next-generation ARM Cortex technology.
Recent leaks on Samsung’s own website confirmed a Quad HD display for the Galaxy Note 4, and Samsung’s new Galaxy S5 LTE-A — which is powered by a Snapdragon 805 — all but confirmed the new processor would feature in its future flagships as well. But, if genuine, these benchmarks are the best indication of the Galaxy Note 4’s specifications that we’ve seen to date.
There are actually two, courtesy of AnTuTu. One details a device with the “SM-N910S” model number, which is powered by a Snapdragon 805 processor and Adreno 420 graphics. The second details a device with the “SM-N910C” model number, which features an 8-core Exynos 5433 chip made up of one quad-core Cortex-A57 and one quad-core Cortex-A53, and ARM Mali-Y760 graphics.
Both devices also have Quad HD displays with a 2560×1440 resolution, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and 16-megapixel cameras. They also run Android 4.4.3 KitKat.
As far as smartphone components go, this is pretty much the best you can get right now. There will be few handsets out this year that are as fast as the Galaxy Note 4, that’s for sure. We shouldn’t forget, however, that these specifications are yet to be confirmed, and there is always a possibility that these things aren’t genuine.
Although this is pretty much what we’ve been expecting from the Note 4, then, take it with a pinch of salt until you hear it from Samsung. We expect the Note 4 to get its grand unveiling at IFA 2014 in Berlin this September.
