Leaked Samsung Galaxy Note 5 benchmark result reveals Exynos 7422 SoC, 4GB of RAM

In the past month or so, we've witnessed an abundance of leaks and rumors centered around Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 5. Although unnamed insider sources have previously argued that the Galaxy Note 5 will come with an Exynos 7422 chipset, the last benchmark result that we've spotted online listed the Exynos 7420, which is the exact same chipset that you can find inside the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge. According to a new leak, however, it looks like at least one version of the Galaxy Note 5 will boast the updated Exynos 7422 chipset.

Late last week, a leaked Geekbench result that seems to have originated from the Verizon-bound Galaxy Note 5 version (N920V) surfaced online, revealing specs that included an Exynos 7420 chipset and 4GB of RAM. This time around, we're here to report on an allegedly leaked CPU-Z benchmark result said to originate from the international version of the Galaxy Note 5, model number SM-N920F. If this leak turns out to be the real deal, the international version of the Note 5 will feature an Exynos 7422 chip.

According to previous rumors, the Exynos 7422 will be an all-in-one solution that incorporates the CPU, the GPU, the RAM, the storage, as well as the radio modem in a single chip. At the moment, we don't know what to expect from the Exynos 7422 in terms of hardware performance, but a moderate nudge is widely expected by the tech community.

Other details that we can gather from this alleged leak are 4GB of RAM (a feature that has been rumored more than once in the past), as well as Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, the latest version of Android currently available. The benchmark also lists 32GB of internal storage space, although the real question is whether Samsung will include a microSD card slot, as our readers would want it to, or not, as rumors have suggested.

According tomultiple sources, Samsung will officially unveil the Galaxy Note 5 alongside the Galaxy S6 edge+ on August 12. Samsung launched all previous Galaxy Note handset iterations at the annual IFA trade show in Berlin, but the company is said to hurry the Galaxy Note 5 to market in an attempt to gain some breathing room away from upcoming Apple iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus.
