Galaxy Note 4’s Exynos chip faster than the Snapdragon 805 in early benchmarks


Samsung’s latest Exynos 5433 processor, which is expected to make its debut in the Galaxy Note 4 this September, is faster than Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 805, according to early AnTuTu benchmarks. The super-speedy chip comes second only to NVIDIA’s 64-bit Tegra K1 processor.

While we still have several months to wait for the Galaxy Note 4’s official unveiling, there will be plenty of leaks to enjoy before then. Recent AnTuTu benchmarks confirmed the handset’s internal specifications, and the latest show how its new Exynos chip stacks up against its competitors.

With a score of 40,303, the Exynos 5433 is faster than the Snapdragon 805 (37,780), the Snapdragon 801 (36,469), and the Huawei hi3630 (36,182). The only processor in the list that gets a better score is the NVIDIA Tegra K1, which is built on 64-bit architecture, with 41,736.


Before we read too much into these results, however, there are a couple of things to bear in mind. First, not all Galaxy Note 4 handsets will have Samsung’s new Exynos processor; there will be another variant powered by the Snapdragon 805, and that’s likely to be the most popular one.

Second, these benchmarks are likely based on incomplete Galaxy Note 4 hardware, and they could change significantly with the final build. We have no doubt the Galaxy Note 4 will be a powerhouse — just like its predecessors — but you shouldn’t place too much trust in these figures just yet.

Other Galaxy Note 4 specifications are said to include a 4.7-inch Quad HD display, 3GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera, and 32GB of internal storage. The device is likely to appear at IFA 2014 in Berlin this September.
