Samsung is Working on a Note 4 Variant with Snapdragon 810
The Galaxy Note 4 is probably Samsung’s most powerful device to date and there are two variants users can choose, one with the homegrown Exynos 7 Octa octa-core processor and another with Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor. Benchmark results show slight differences in performance between the two.
Apparently, the company could be working on a new variant. The 3rd variant of Note 4 is probably equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor with 64-bit capability. It is based on the usual ARM’s big.LITTLE configuration and includes the embedded Adreno 430 GPU.
Unfortunately, the company has the habit of releasing the best variants of its smartphone models only in its home country, South Korea. Like the Galaxy S5 LTE-A, the Galaxy Note 4 with Snapdragon 810 could be exclusive for consumers in South Korea and available through a few major carriers in the country, SKT, Olleh and LG+.
Rumors say that the improved phablet model will be released after the debut of Galaxy S6. Recently, Qualcomm refuted claims that it had issues with the production of Snapdragon 810 chips and assured that there will be no delays in shipments to phone makers.
