Galaxy Note 4 benchmarked with Snapdragon 810 on board

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has just turned up on Geekbench rocking a Snapdragon 810 chip.

This means Samsung could in fact be working on a boosted variant of its flagship tablet that runs of Qualcomm’s fast-approaching flagship application processor.

Earlier this week we heard talk from South Korea’s thriving anonymous tipster network that such a device could be in the works, and now it seems there might be some truth behind the chatter.

The benchmark lists a device tagged up under the model number SM-N916S, which sounds very much like a spin-off of the current Galaxy Note 4’s SM-N910 factory moniker.

The motherboard is similarly named by model, with the processor revealed to be an eight-core MSM8994 – we already know that to be the Snapdragon 810.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 landed back in October and comes in two chip variants – one with a Snapdragon 805, and one with a custom-built Exynos 7 Octa.

Geekbench also tips the device to be making use of 3GB of RAM, with the OS upgraded to Google’s latest Android 5.0 Lollipop.

It’s worth mentioning however that previous reports on this matter did put the Snapdragon 810-toting Note 4 as a possible South Korea-only release.

The Snapdragon 810 is Qualcomm’s beefiest chip yet, boasting 64-bit architecture, Adreno 430 graphics, and a Cat. 9 LTE modem.

Samsung is also reported to be working on its own Cat. 10 Exynos chip, which could debut on the as-yet unannounced Samsung Galaxy S6.
