AnTuTu says that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 scored 69,702 points in its mobile benchmark
With the official unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ right around the corner, information on the two upcoming Samsung phablets keeps finding its way online through unnoficial channels.

Although we've recently heard a lot of rumors and seen a lot of leaks that claim to shed insight on the hardware specifications of the two upcoming big-screened smartphones from Samsung, we've found it very hard to quantify how these two devices will actually perform. 

While a complete performance analysis will only be possible after the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+ reach our testing lab, AnTuTu, the company behind the popular mobile benchmark app with the same name, has just published some very interesting details.

First off, let's talk about the specs one more time. According to a recent blog post from AnTuTu, the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+ will come with roughly the same internal hardware. Allegedly, the two devices will share most of the important specs, such as an Exynos 7420 chipset (the same kind as the one inside the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge), 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage space, a 16MP primary camera, and a 5MP secondary shooter. As expected, AnTuTu claims that both smartphones will run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, the most recent Android version currently available. 

According to AnTuTu, the only major difference between the two handsets will be the size of the display: the Galaxy Note 5 is said to come with a 5.7-inch (other reports hint at a 5.66-inch panel, but that's close enough) display, while the Galaxy S6 edge+ is said to come with a 5.5-inch panel, both running a resolution of 1440 by 2560 pixels.

Now to the good stuff! AnTuTu claims that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 was spotted in its benchmark database with a score of 69,702 points, while the Galaxy S6 edge+ appears to have obtained a score 68,345 points. Back in mid-July, AnTuTu compiled a list of the best-performing Android smartphones of H1 2015, and the Galaxy S6 topped the rankings with an average score of 67,520 points, followed by the Galaxy S6 edge with an average score of 63,910 points. 

If the specs provided by AnTuTu turn out to be accurate, then the only difference in terms of internal hardware between Samsung's upcoming big-screened smartphones and the Galaxy S6 series will be an extra GB of RAM. Aside from extra hardware optimization, the difference in benchmarked performance between the Galaxy S6 series and the Galaxy Note 5 should largely be determined by that extra GB of RAM.

In closing, we'd like to leave you with a word of precaution. Multiple sources suggested that the Galaxy Note 5 will come with an improved Exynos 7422 chipset, allegedly an all-in-one solution that brings the CPU, the GPU, the RAM, the internal storage, and the modem inside a single piece of silicon. Although AnTuTu says that the Note 5 and the S6 edge+ will come with an Exynos 7420 chip, we should rule out the possibility that the benchmark was unable to properly identify the Exynos 7422. We'll find out which way is up on August 13 when Samsung will officially unveil its two new handsets.

Was really hoping to see the 7422, but if it's not ready, I hope they don't push it. The processor market is yours now Samsung, don't ruin it.

These benchmarks are just crap and useless. My Xperia Z2 scored around 35,000 and it works buttery smooth even now. There's nothing on the Play Store yet which can scare my Z2.

That's because your Xperia Z2 uses Snapdragon 801 which is last generations high end SoC. It's going to be another year before you start seeing any major performance issues. Devices usually scale well in Antutu, Sony devices don't however, unsure why that's the case but the Xperia Z1 Compact scores higher than the Xperia Z2. Only Sony know what's going on there.

If benchmarks are useless in your book, then why did you bother yourself and check your phone's result?

Good point sir!

If i had not checked it before, then how would i have come to this conclusion that benchmark scores are just to manipulate consumers... just use ur brain....

I don't judge a phone just by browsing PhoneArena and other tech sites...

Average people usually don't browse this website at all. They even don't know what benchmarks is. Maybe you belong to them and somehow got the link of phonearena. I disagree that benchmarks are manipulation, it gives perfect sense of the hardware capabilities. Just because your phone is smooth doesn't mean its as powerful as the s6 duo..I have an s4 with a custom ROM, its antutu score is 29000. Its hell smooth. I still think s6 with touchwiz might still lag compared to my custom s4 but I am aware that the s6 can run bigger apps that might get launched in future. At least I am not in denial that benchmark doesn't matter because my phone is smooth. If you want I can tell you some list of apps that technically you won't need but it proves how slow your processor is compared to s6.

Don't worry bro. It's not fake. it scored around 35000 running on 4.4.2 and Antutu ver. 4. Currently i am running on 5.1.1. But didn't used any benchmark apps recently coz i find it useless..

I was hoping for ePoP and/or manufactured on 14nm LPP process with more clock speed. I don't think saying 7422 will be better, just because of bigger number, increase in number doesn't makes processor better.

So basically it's about the same as the S6 in benchmarks processor & pretty much everything else but screen size. Wow I'm impressed

In the USA the note 5 will come with 7420'due to the modems that are needed It's why it out in the USA 1st The (f) model will have 7422 (It was going. To have the snapdragon 810 but Samsung dropped it due to it being crap

How do you know?

The s6 in the USA does not have the same modems for a start and the benchmarks of the phones with (f) have all listed 7422 why USA ver have had 7420, also why there be a delay for the (f) ver and so on, please note all other vers always have other modems or more sims and so on I.e. There is no way that the USA ver was going to get the 7422

17. j2001m

Posts: 3061; Member since: Apr 28, 2014

So, phones like in China, Korea, USA and so on none (f) ver will get the note 5 faster but will not included the all in one epop, but others parts may be epop

The processor market still belongs to Qualcomm, in case you didn't notice OEMs did not abandon the 810 and many plan to use the 820 in the future. Samsung's shift to it's own processors in it's flagships was a long time coming, they just happened to have a processor that performed better than the 810 when it was revealed that the early 810 chips were experiencing overheating. So Samsung decided to go with the better performing chip. If qualcomm's next chip, the 820 is superior, Samsung may switch back or they won't if the differences aren't significant for the end user. You did not see OEMs rushing to Samsung to use their chips instead of Qualcomm.

And we saw most (if not all) of them suffer for it. There was also rumor of the 820 overheating, but that was a very quiet rumor. I didn't mean Samsung had market-share I meant they had momentum.

It's not necessarily because of the 810, many lost market share to Apple. To the average user, the 810 processor doesn't matter as it doesn't make a noticeable difference in real world usage between it and the exnoys.

The processor market is Samsung's now. Just check their growth in chips. Also they have advanced fab that Qualcomm doesn't have and they will be manufacturing the 820 too for qualcomm. OEMs don't rush to Samsung because Samsung was already using their 100% capacity and why would they sell 7420 to competitors when the had the following conditions: 1. A solid point of difference (PoD) for their flagship 2. Supply of the 7420chip for their flagship was bottlenecked 3. It was a lot better for Samsung if co!petitors purchase SD810 and make their devices inferior.

The processor market is not Samsung's, considering the fact that Samsung makes less than 50% of the processors in devices on the market.

51. iushnt

Does that 50% give any sense? They make less than 50% of smartphones out of the total industry sales. Apple, who was leader in China last quarter had less than 50% market share. I don't know why you chose that number 50.

Not really most oems are still using Qualcomm for flagships
