Samsung Galaxy Note 4 pops up on Indonesian e-store with specs and price in tow

Needless to say, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4's impending announcement, now confirmed to take place on September 3rd, is one of the most anxiously-expected events in the smartphone industry. The Note line has been a big winner for Samsung, and that can mostly be attributed to the fact that the company always goes full out when its premium phablet line is concerned. It's no wonder that Note 4-related leaks have been creeping up as if from thin air, and today we have a particularly juicy one...

You would get 3.75 as android system is always taking a quarter gig

Yes linux with pae can use more ram and since android is built on linux it should be possible

It's possible with PAE on x86 and LPAE on ARM (Cortex-A15 onwards).

That site Erafone is just spamming the web with their made up specs. That pic has been around a while too.

i doubt that. Erafone is cellphone retailer with good reputation in Indonesia, they wouldn't want to ruin it.

Oops. Not buy until sammy brought us Snapdragon version. Will not fall crappy exynos again. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.

Lol 16 GB? Should be a minimum of 32. All the other specs are solid

To be safe, always choose the Snapdragon variant

Agreed.

Absolutely. Although I heard some good things about recent Suxynos I still don't trust Sammy. Better stick to the last generation of 32-bit than having troubles with bogus 64bit Android.

Well the Exynos 32bit did Buttkick your A7 64bit out of the water

Source? At what clock? Did they run 64bit routines on A7? If yes, did the same guy write both 32/64bit codes? Whatever, they are synthetic benchmarks heavily dependent on the algorithm/implementation and doesn't tell much. People claiming Java to be not slow always refer to some benchmark scores. Well, Java isn't that bad dealing with primitive data types most benchmarks concentrate on, but as soon as custom data types/classes are there, the horror begins. And I don't have to say which data types are mostly used in real apps.

And yet, in real usage iP4s is less laggy than your Android.

Because your platform is still a light halfbaked

So you think your app drawer is faster? Too bad that's all it is basically.

again a stupid comment by the most stupid person on pa. you are comparing a 1.9ghz X 4 a7 instruction set ( geek bench :2800) to a 1.3ghz x 2 a8 instruction set ( geek bench :2580). TDP of 4.0w vs 2.3 w ( provided both running at max load under whatever the respective limits the companies have set ). A7 is the chip of the future ( you will notice the difference in couple of years when most android apps will be written for this instruction set starting with the new denver and snapdragons .)

true, when the clocks of the mali t760 in the exynos are the same as in rockchip, then the adreno 420 will even be superior.

A420 losses with MaliT760

mali t760 mp16 will probably outstands even adreno 430 qualcomm gpu's are low like cpu's

xynos chips have always tended to outperform Snapdragons released at about the same time. Problem is that Cortex-A15 has been a dud in terms of power consumption, which is why it hasn't been seen in anything but a small percentage of mainline phones. Even in tablets where its poor power efficiency is less of an issue, Qualcomm Kraits have been dominating. big.LITTLE helps a bit here, but the truth is - at peak performance, Krait is far more power efficient than the A15, which means that it takes longer for a Krait to hit thermal throttling limits and can run for longer on battery. What's the point of having that insane peak performance if you can't sustain it without overheating or killing the battery? Snapdragons didn't have such a clear advantage when it came to Scorpion vs. Cortex-A9, or even dual-Krait vs. quad-A9 which is why Exynos 4210 and 4412 dominated Samsung's handset lineup in their heyday - but the A15 has been a failure outside of the tablet and Chromebook market. Samsung will claim the reason for Krait dominating their handset lineup is LTE in public documentation, but the Note 2 and international LTE GS3 (I9305) proved that Samsung can hang a Qualcomm LTE modem off of an Exynos CPU. Specs are the same The Cpu, Gpu destroys the S805, let alone S801.

In short, Suxynos sucked. You are just listing excuses for Suxynos' lackluster performance, and for whatever the reason, the fact remains : it sucked. It was and is a mistake for the consumers to choose Suxynos over SD. And obviously you don't know a thing about SoC. Lesson 1: SoC =/= CPU

Jealous iBoy Snapdragon still relying on pos A9 modified.

52. JakeLee

Posts: 1021; Member since: Nov 02, 2013

Where did you read that crap? Did you check the instruction cycle timings? Krait is clearly optimized CA15. You ALWAYS ctrl+c/v from somewhere else. You only talk about CPU/GPU/Modem. SoC is FAR more than that.

Go and drive your Pos 2.0litre engine car, while others enjoy driving big heavy loaded 4.0 litre.
