Samsung is having all sorts of problems when it comes to company’s mobile division, the profits are significantly down and this Korean giant is trying to re-structure to a certain extent. Samsung is still the number one smartphone manufacturer in the world and the company is far from being in any sort of danger of losing that spot in the near future, but if such drop in sales continues, that might actually happen at a certain point. Sales and profits aside, we’re here to talk about the Galaxy Note 4 phablet, Samsung’s crown jewel. A couple of days ago we reported that Samsung might be testing the Snapdragon 810-powered Note 4 in South Korea and now we have some more evidence to prove that.
Samsung SM-N916S listing popped up on Geekbench benchmarks website and basically confirmed this device. The listing says that this device runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and that it is powered by an octa-core MSM8994 processor, in other words, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 chip. The currently available Galaxy Note 4 phablet has the model number SM-N910, so… yeah, this is almost certainly the upgraded Note 4. Unfortunately though, this model might be released only in South Korea, as we previously reported. As a side note, the Snapdragon 810 is Qualcomm’s latest and greatest SoC, this is a 64-bit octa-core chip with a Cat.9 LTE modem. We still don’t know when might this device land in South Korea, but that will probably happen in Q1 2015. I hope Samsung will release this version of the device to other markets as well, I believe there are those of you out there who would definitely want to get your hands on a copy of this beast.
If you’d like to check out the full Geekbench listing, take a look at the image below this article. The only different between the two models would be the aforementioned processor, the device would still sport a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display and 3GB of RAM. Samsung might offer different storage options though, but the cameras will also stay put as well as every other part of the original Galaxy Note 3 phablet. Anyone interested in the Snapdragon 810-powered Note 4?
