Galaxy Note 5 specs confirmed by benchmark results
If all the leaks continue at this pace, Samsung will soon run out of things to announce at its August 12/13 unveiling of the Galaxy Note 5 (and possibly the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, and Gear A round smartwatch). We can’t say we’re complaining though: you can browse all the recent leaks, rumors, and reports here, but we’ll have to mention the latest two, dealing with the non-self-ejecting S-Pen, and of course the alleged live pictures that leaked recently (one of them seen above).
While we know to expect, thanks to previous leaks, a powerful Exynos 7422 SoC and 4GB of RAM (among other things, like the Quad HD screen, 16MP OIS camera, etc.), a recent benchmark result seems to confirm these. As you can see in the screenshot below (and at the source link), a Verizon-bound Galaxy Note 5 has been benchmarked on July 23. The Galaxy Note 5 specs listed confirm the amount of memory (4GB of RAM), but interestingly mention the Exynos 7420, which is at the heard of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. While Samsung could very well reuse the chip in its Note 5 (as it is, arguably, the most powerful chip on the market at the moment), it might also be an error in the benchmark result, reporting the 7422 (same as 7420, but with a new modem chip on it) as the 7420.
The Galaxy Note 5 specs listed end here, but the benchmark result also reveals Android 5.1.1 Lollipop on-board, as expected, as well as results comparable with the S6 and S6 Edge, which is, again, expected, if the Note 5 will be powered by the same (or almost the same) SoC.
