Verizon-bound Galaxy Note 5 passes through benchmark, reveals Exynos 7420 and 4GB RAM

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!

I like the thin side bezels. But I think I won't be upgrading from Note 4.

The only major manufacturer left on the planet that offers both of those is LG. Why did you even ask anymore like you don't know this?

False. Samsung still does too, just not on the high end anymore. Sdcards support and removable batts, shouldn't be high end features anymore when better options are available. The Samsung a7 and a8 and others offer it.

They are just trolls.

Gotta laugh at how the battery in the 4th pic is 13% Typical Samsung product with an underpowered battery. Such a disgrace

To me all the pictures looks fake. The note 5 may have same processor as the S6 but will mostly likely be clocked higher. Samsung note series has always been a beast and a step up from the S series so I doubt this will change.

Samsung is usually very good at stopping leaks of actual images of their flagships. I remember all the previous leaks of flaghships turned out to be fake.

Take everything with a pinch of salt.

i also think that the most pics are fake just because of every live photo only showed the front of the device.. no photos of the back

or maybe im wrong and mised one leak..

I hate the squashed oval home button on galaxy devices. I would prefer no home button and thinner bezels overall.

almost every other phone has no home button. get one of those.

This is shaping up to be a sodas pointing Galaxy Note launch. Samsung usually brings their A game with the note series but so far it's looking like it's just a slightly improved S6. The Note 4 brought a newer more color accurate 2k display, OIS, and a faster CPU/GPU. I think if Samsung improved in all these aspects plus including the new USB-C port they would have a truly next gen future proof device like the Note 4 was.

Note 4 seemed a big upgrade because S5 was sh*t. Get over it, you can't improve too much over S6.

The Galaxy S5 is still a solid phone, the design wasn't great but it's very capable if you can look beyond the plastic and ugly design.

I don't agree. The phone was laggy, the camera was pretty bad in low light and the software looked hugely inconsistent.

There was this overall lack of polish on S5. It didn't offer much over S4 and the other flagships of that time.

Pretty much everything before the Galaxy S6 was bad in low light, holding that against it is just silly. The camera was fantastic in good lighting and still even holds up well now.

I've never noticed much lag on the Galaxy S5, but I've not used it extensively. I'm not a huge fan of touchwiz but it seemed okay, settings looked pretty horrible though.

Put the s5 next to the s6 and you see the lag
If you put the note 4 next to the s6 you see the lag
And even the iPhone 6 lags next to the s6, no joke, it's very fast

s4 vs s5, camera did improve as well as the screen. slight improvement, but one none the less. I agree,it's difficult to improve upon the s6.

Those complaining about the IR blaster, do you even use it?

Yep. This was why I didn't get the Nexus 6. Once you get used to having it, it's hard to go back. That's why I feel the Note 5 is almost a downgrade from the 4. They actually took away features instead of adding.

I see a lot of people complaining about the lag(ok, haters will be complaining about lag all the time) and overheating. Waterproof phone does come at a price. Also it has a terrible fingerprint scanner.

I've seen enough comparisons with other Snapdragon 801 devices to know Galaxy S5 doesn't overheat.

In gaming tests the Galaxy S5 maintains a stable framerate whereas other devices like the LG G3 suffered huge framerate drops.

Finall somebody who gets it. Same thing was between s4 sd600 vs note 3 sd800. It's not the note 5 that is worse, it's the s6 that is better. Sammy made the s6 disgustingly good, which is a good thing. The only drawbacks are the battery size and no mSD slot, which will be addressed in the note 5 most likely. All in all, note 5 will be a solid prpduct worthy to be upgraded to from note 2/3 or galaxy s4/5 users.

It doesnt work like that though. S4 upgrades to S5 or S6 Note 3 upgrades to Note 4 and the jump wasnt that big between Note 3 and 4.

Well considering that sony has a new and improved IMX230 sensor that's already available to vendors plus the ability to adopt the new 3 axis optical image stab platoon that LG is already using its disappointing that Samsung is just gonna keep the same sensor as the S6. It's also disappointing that Samsung is still using the same processor when there are new T model GPU's available. It's even more disappointing that USB type C is clearly the future and Samsung is failing to include it. There are lots that can be improved but Samsung is taking the cheaper route.

IMX230 is 4:3 sensor. I don't think Samsung wants that. The IMX240 Samsung uses is a custom fabbed sensor. That's also the reason no other OEM is using the IMX240. Also, not even Sony itself is using it.

About the USB Type C, it's the future. But unless it is really popular, I won't cry over it's inclusion as there are loads of microUSB 2.0 connectors, but it's almost impossible to get Type C ones.

About the SoC, even I'm surprised. I was hoping for a better one.

Well that sensor comes in 20 and 16 megapixel variants and the 16 is a 16x9 ratio. Yea you're right that there aren't a lot of type C connectors out there but adapters will be cheap but how often will you be charging your phone outside your hous, car, or work where you can keep one at all places? The move to 4k with tv's and 2k for phones has been incredibly fast and I guarentee every flagship next year will include type C. I'm getting the Note 5 to replace my S6 but I do have some good points. It's not wrong to expect the best when they are capable of it. Now I just wish they did something to the 7420 to make it not hear up so easily and quickly.

Inclusion of USB Type C would have made Note 5 really more attractive. especially if it could have Type C with USB 3.1 ;) I had high hope that Note 5 and iPhone 6s would have Type C but both opt out of this for now. Now Note 5 looks a lot like blown up version of S6(which I didn't buy). also if Note 5 had Type C with 3.0/3.1 we could really take advantage of UHF 2.0 in that too. I hope Note 5 to support UHS 3 or atlases UHS 1 too. now probably Oneplus 2 will be first to bring Type C.(I doubt would be usb 3.0/3.1)

There's a lot they could improve from the S6. A all in one soc would have been nice for instance

Seriously Samsung, I waited this long for absolutely no upgrade from note 4? Except the UFS 2.0, die shrink in SOC and 2 extra shreder cores of T760.

Lol, for upgrade they will be hanging two coconuts on either side of the phone...
Jokes apart, Note 4 & S6 have some of the best feature available till date. I dont think there will be anything pathbreaking for the year.
Yes, goodies like improved finger scanner, Samsung Pay, performance boost, fresh build, improved camera, some new SPen related features can be expected.
