Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor for Galaxy Note 4 reportedly confirmed

There have already been countless rumors about the features and specifications of Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the company’s upcoming flagship which many of us have been looking forward to. The announcement has already been confirmed for September 3rd so we have a little less than a month to kill before Samsung finally reveals all the juicy details about the device. A new report has emerged which confirms that Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 will be one of the processors that will be used in the Galaxy Note 4.

Samsung is known for releasing two versions of its flagship devices, one that has its own Exynos processor and the other that uses chips from another company, Qualcomm mostly. A leaked benchmark test for the Galaxy Note 4 showed that a version with Exynos 5433 CPU and another with the Snapdragon 805 was under testing.

Now sources familiar with the matter tell ZDNet Korea that Qualcomm has definitely agreed to sell Samsung the Snapdragon 805 for Galaxy Note 4 and that its also offering the company a significant discount on the price, reportedly in the “two digits per chip” region. Its unclear why Qualcomm is extending this rare courtesy to Samsung but the report claims this has angered LG which believes it should receive a similar discount since its also an important Qualcomm customer.

Samsung obviously has not confirmed any of this so it would be better to take it with a grain of salt, though seeing as how the Snapdragon 805 is the processor of choice for all high-end devices at this time, it wouldn’t really surprise anyone if the Galaxy Note 4 had it too.

    The source link doesn’t point to the actual article, just the general ZDNet homepage. Also, “two digits per chip” doesn’t sound like a discount given that the 801 in the GS5 reportedly cost $41 per chip.

    Is this news? Lol was anyone actually thinking Samsung would release the note 4 with a snapdragon 801? This is just common sense imo..of course they’re going to put the snapdragon 810 or whatever exynos variant is equivalent…this is common sense…LG being mad that Samsung gets a discount…maybe if LG actually sold enough phones they’d also get a discount you know like every other industry works…bulk gets deals

    Samsung putting a Snapdragon 810 in the Note 4 would be big news, seeing as how the 810 probably won’t show up on any phone until next Spring.

    Kinda disappointed by the S805. As we can see from the Galaxy S5 LTE-A, we can not really expect much/any of a performance bump due to the higher resolution. I’m skipping this generation and my Note 3 will keep me company well into the next year.

    i’ll just wait for a couple of months. Samsung will come up with Note4 LTE-A, Note4 Special Edition, Note4 Premium Edition, Note4 dual sim, Note4 mini and other variants that you can come up with.
