Snapdragon 810-equipped Galaxy Note 4 (SM-N916S) gets benchmarked

A few days ago, SamMobile exclusively reported about Samsung testing a special variant of the Galaxy Note 4 sporting Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 810 SoC for major Korean carriers, including SK Telecom (SM-N916S), Olleh (SM-N916K), and LG Uplus (SM-N916L). Now, the Snapdragon 810-equipped Galaxy Note 4 has made an appearance on Geekbench, a popular benchmarking tool; backing up our original report.

The only difference between the standard and this new special variant of the Note 4 is the System-on-Chip; visually, they both are identical. The Galaxy Note 4 is already available in two processor configurations, Snapdragon 805 and Exynos 7 Octa. However, both of them are 32-bit processors, which means they can’t run Android 5.0 Lollipop in 64-bit mode, nor can run native 64-bit applications. Whereas, Qualcomm’s latest offering – Snapdragon 810 (MSM8994) – is a fully 64-bit chip; actually, the world’s first 64-bit oct-core chip running in ARM’s big.LITTLE configuration.

Qualcomm recently announced that it has added LTE Category 9 support in SD810, which can reach up to 450Mbps download speeds. Moreover, the SoC also comes with an Adreno 430 GPU clocked at 650MHz. Rest of the hardware is the same as the standard Galaxy Note 4. Software-wise, the special variant will come with Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.

According to our insiders, Samsung will launch the Snapdragon 810-equipped Galaxy Note 4 in Spring of 2015, and release will be exclusive to Korea.

if this is true so i want my exynos note 4 money back or they exchange it for 810 one or its considered to be cheating.

Its not considered cheating unless this device is released internationally, As this device is intended for Korea only in which the processor upgrade would also mean an LTE-A speed increase or a CAT-10 upgrade similar to the GS4-LTE-A(CAT 4) until S5-LTE-A(CAT 6) due to fact that Korean Carriers like SK-Telecom,KT Olleh and LG U+ are keep on upgrading there speeds and i am not surprised that Samsung is doing this.

if they made it they will start by selling it in korea then they will spread it around the world u will see.

If they release it worldwide it will be in UK and the EU, as LTE-A is already available there and the proof of that is the GT-i9506 and the SM-G901F

And i will not be surprised if i saw this device on 28mobile or any sites that sell Korean versions of Galaxy Smartphones

You lot are the biggest whiners ever. Please show me ONE piece of documentation or advertisement by Samsung that marketed the Note 4 as a 64 bit device. That is all in your own quite befuddled heads.

Exynos 7 is 64-bit. Just restricted to 32-bit or you telling me Samsung won’t make it 64-bit with Lollipop and I got this phone varient for nothing?

alastairgreen_Nexus
alastairgreen_Nexus

At least i’ve waited for it because i can see this repetition starting from S4 LTE-A up to this Note 4 and it should be called as a Note-4 CAT6 LTE-A
