Verizon-bound Galaxy Note 5 passes through benchmark, reveals Exynos 7420 and 4GB RAM
As we get closer to the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, so does the rate at which related leaks and intel intensify. We're no stranger to this phenomenon, and the closer we get to the big date, the meatier the leaks will get. Case in point: a tip was just sent in, drawing our attention to the existence of a recent Note 5 pass through the Geekbench test suite.
Recorded on July 23, the traces from the pass indicate that the specific version of the Note 5 is the one bound for Verizon Wireless' network: SM-N920V. The model is also revealed to be packing an octa-core, 64-bit Exynos 7420 processor, along with 4 gigs of RAM. The only other two details worth pointing out are the fact that the device in question ran on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, and achieved benchmark scores compare to those managed by the Samsung Galaxy S6: 1418 (Single-Core) and 4399 (Multi-Core) points.
In addition to today's find, we've been getting some pretty interesting intel lately. Just earlier today, we were again told to expect the Note 5 to be announced before August is out, and yesterday we got ourselves our first look at supposedly working Galaxy Note 5. You can refer to our comprehensive rumor round-up to catch up, but to summarize, the Note 5 is expected to come with best-of-the-best in terms of hardware, and design language closely adhering to the philosophy introduced with the Galaxy S6 (so metal and glass). Whether all of this pans out remains to be seen, though at this point it seems unlikely that the rumor mill is wrong simply due to the volume of related leaks being made available daily. But hey, one can never know, so sit tight!
