New evidence suggests that a Snapdragon 810-powered Samsung Galaxy Note 4 may be coming soon
Earlier this week, we told you that Samsung was reportedly testing a Galaxy Note 4 variant featuring a Snapdragon 810 processor - instead of a Snapdragon 805, or an Exynos 7 Octa like the versions that are currently available around the world.

Now, evidence of the new Note 4’s existence has surfaced over at the Geekbench website (provider of a popular cross-platform benchmark app). The website lists a Samsung SM-N916S that runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and is powered by an eight-core MSM8994 processor - which is none other than the Snapdragon 810. The regular Galaxy Note 4 has the model number SM-N910, so the SM-N916S is almost certainly an unannounced variant of it.

As
New evidence suggests that a Snapdragon 810-powered Samsung Galaxy Note 4 may be coming soon
previously reported, the Snapdragon 810-powered Galaxy Note 4 might be released only in South Korea, Samsung’s home country. Most probably, the new smartphone will look exactly like the current models. We don’t know exactly when it’s supposed to be released, though.

The Snapdragon 810 is Qualcomm's latest high-end chipset, being the company's first to combine a a 64-bit octa-core CPU with an LTE-Advanced Cat 9 multimode modem. 

Contrary to recent rumors, the Snapdragon 810 won't be delayed, and Qualcomm expects devices based on it to be available in the first half of 2015.

If SD810 Note 4 releases this year or early next year. I wonder what's left for the 2015 Flagship phones?
SD815 or SD820 in the production?

But the note 4 should have snapdragon 810 not 805 but snapdragon 810 waabt ready yet so thet went with snapdragon 805. I really hoped they will release a note 4 with snapdragob 810 and they will :)

Why not?

They and other OEMs are gonna release new phones/phablets with the 810
Samsung are just keeping up, like Sony's 6 month release cycle
Also its probably only going to be released in Korea

It's not like 805 Note 4's will suddenly stop working

These scores are weak for this to be the 810. If that's the case the A8X is a preview of what's to come for the A9. Expect the A9 to be at least a 20-30% minimum increase in performance with about 50% more efficiency over the 20nm die size as well. I can't imagine 2200 single core and 5000 multi core score with 2gb RAM.

The scores are way too weak . The exynos 5433 with LPDDR3 RAM and 32 bit OS scores 1300/4300.

Maybe the rumors of the 810 having thermal issues were true?

This might have been before Qualcomm fixed it

Lollipop alone gave my Nexus 5 a 20% increase in GeekBench

So now it scores 3000!???

My Nexus 5 hasn't been able to break 3000 yet
But mine's one of the lower bins (bin 2, out of I think 6)
2960 isn't far of 3000 anyway

It's not going to be released in the US or compatible with our networks. So really only South Koreans, their native homeland customers are getting the proverbial f**king.

No. Once a model is out on the shelve its already obsolete.

I support that they update spec. as soon as they are able so we buy when we need the device not before not after.

if they were going to release that version they should did that from the beging not after ppl had bought the 2 variants available now this is not like s5 when they released anew variant with SD805 cuz 805 and 801 are so similer but when we talk about SD810 this is acompletely different processor this is why they cant release 810 after ppl bought their 805.

ORRRRRRR, they could be simply testing the 810 with a note4.
After all, their not going to create a whole new phone to simply test how a new processor handles ? Ehh ??

So Samsung is going to put out a 64-bit Note 4 with 3GB RAM, 1.5GB of which goes to Samsung's bloated OS and assorted non-removable carrier bloatware.

And what will they do for the Note 5? Add 1GB RAM and increase the OS and bloats to 2GB or more?

What about 808?

posted on 12 Dec 2014, 05:37

19. vincelongman (Posts: 4081; Member since: 10 Feb 2013)


Probably later when the 810 is in full production
The 808 is basically the 810 with some cores disabled
They will be from the lower bins of the 810 production

While the upcoming Motorola is coming with Snapdragon 810 and 4Gb ram the upcoming Note 4 and S6 still coming with 3Gb ram. How sad?

this would be pointless if they release galaxy note 5 with snapdragon 810

23. icrappy (Posts: 42; Member since: 19 Sep 2014)


they should just stick to 805 for note 4

24. icrappy (Posts: 42; Member since: 19 Sep 2014)


or use snapdragon 600, 720p resolution, 8 megapixel isocell cam, lollipop as a midranger specs

It needs it. The note 4 is the slowest, laggiest phone I've ever used. So wish I had kept my LG G3. 6 months can't come fast enough to offload this crap with my Jump.
