The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will launch just before IFA 2014 on September 3 and will no doubt be one of the best-selling handsets of Q4, alongside Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6 and iPhone Air releases.
And earlier today we were treated to our first glimpse of what we can expect from the Galaxy Note 4’s CPU, via a leaked AnTuTu benchmark. Originally obtained by GSM Arena, the leak tells of a couple of things about Samsung’s new Note phablet:
1) It’s going to be INSANELY powerful.
2) The Galaxy Note 4 could very well be the first 64-bit enabled high-end Android smartphone.
There will be two versions of the Galaxy Note 4 released during Q4; one with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset, the other with Samsung’s very own Exynos Octa-Core 5433, the company’s first 64-bit CPU.
The leaked benchmarks score shows us just how powerful the new Exynos is compared to Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 805; the Exynos drummed up a score of 40,000 in AnTuTu!
“The Exynos chipset comes out ahead in CPU power,” said the report, “it can use all eight cores simultaneously. It helps that it has faster access to RAM too. The new Mali-T760 has an edge over the new Adreno 420 at the QHD resolution of the Galaxy Note 4 screen.”
In terms of gross performance the new Exynos outpaces everything bar NVIDIA’s new Tegra K1 chipset, which we’ve yet to see inside a phone. All in all, a devastating performance all round from Samsung’s brand new Exynos chipset.
Lets just hope we get a taste of the action in the UK.
