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 to multiple 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.

So it is 7422 after all not 7420, MONSTER IS COMINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG Some will notice 743MB of ram free, just note its PROTOTYPE plus ram issue is gone since last few days on S6 so dont bitch about it. To all noSD,Battery,RAM issues trolls(which are fixed with latest 5.1.1 hotfixes this week) , even with all that , it still made S6 and soon Note 5 the best , fastest smartphones on market, but please go buy 1+2(hahahahah).

There's too many questions still about the RAM This guy could have a bunch of apps open and chrome tabs. And just happen to take the screenshot. I'm still excited especially if 4000+ mah battery rumors are true. Coming from 2300 Nexus 5

Also unused ram is wasted ram 0.7GB free is still plenty

They are benchmarking...When you benchmark, you use everything your device has to get the score. It's probably just be the Benchmarking app that is taking up the space.

CPU Z is a benchmark? Phonearena wrighters must be smoking.

In Linux an unused RAM is considered to be a wasted RAM. So RAM is usually take up, and then freed up as needed.

Shouldn't there be RAM free waiting for the user? It is tough to open apps when there is no free RAM. I'm no expert, but generally programs crash when there is no RAM. It worked that way with my Nexus 5 when Lollipop had a memory leak.

Yep, there should ideally be a small amount of free ram for opening new apps 750MB is plenty since most apps use ~100MB The problem with 5.0 was that there was a memory leak Leaked memory is also wasted ram (the worst wasted ram) Even no free ram isn't that bad of an issue IF that memory is not leaked Because when you want to open a new apps it can clear up space for the app (could cause some delays though) But with a memory leak, the leaked memory gets "lost" So the OS can't clear up ram for new apps, which can cause crashes

The system needs your ram. Sometimes I think the government is using my phone to mine for bitcoin or something

Oi, Oi, Oi, aren't you getting a little bit carried away? Posting comment like this will make people start labeling you as a brainwashed Samsung worshiper.

The thing is all phones that will have type c this year will be slower then the note 5 with ufs and epop the phone the r and w speed are very fast it will be faster at transferring files than a phone with type c and emmc and normal CPU setup,that's 100%, that and how many pcs are ther with type c, hm less than 1%, so the note 5 will easy transfer files faster, type c is going to get you no faster transfer speeds, that's 100%

android 5.1.1 is api level 22 not 21 java for 5.1.1 should be ART 2.1.0 not Dalvik 2.1.0 if these two glitches are present then how do we know that its not 7420 instead of 7422?
