There will be at least two versions of the phablet announced at IFA 2014
With less than a month left until IFA 2014 is set to kick off, more and more leaks hinting at various devices that are likely to be unveiled during the trade fair emerge online.The latest from the flow of such leaks concerns Samsung’s next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy Note 4, which is expected to be officially unveiled on September 3, in Berlin, Germany.
Even though most of the phone’s specs leaked a few days ago, we still don’t have any confirmations regarding the final version of Galaxy Note 4, so take the following with a grain of salt until early next month, when Samsung is set to officially introduce the phablet.
It looks like BGR has spotted the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in some AnTuTu benchmarks, along with some of the phone’s insides. If these prove to be accurate, then the Galaxy Note 4 will surely be one of the most powerful Android smartphones available on the market.
At least one of the Galaxy Note 4 models Samsung is likely to announce next month will be monstrous when it comes to performance. Apparently, the South Korean company will be launching at least two Galaxy Note 4 variants, and one of them will be packed with the powerful Exynos 5433 chipset.
Now for those unware, Samsung’s Exynos 5433 system on chip is only second to Nvidia’s new Tegra K1 chipset. It’s even more powerful than Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 chipset, as shown in the benchmarks.
Another Galaxy Note 4 model will be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset that packs a quad-core processor clocked at 2.5GHz, as well as an Adreno 420 graphics processing unit.
In comparison, the Exynos 5433 chipset accommodates two quad-core processors (Cortex A57 and Cortex A53), along with an impressive Mali-T760 graphics processing unit.
Aside from that, both Galaxy Note 4 models seem to pack similar specs, including 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory and 16-megapixel rear-facing cameras.
It’s also worth mentioning that the Exynos-based Galaxy Note 4 is known as Samsung SM-N910C, while the Qualcomm-based model is codenamed SM-N910S.
According to these benchmarks, both phablets will boast QHD capacitive touchscreen displays that support 2560 x 1440 pixels resolutions.
The only mystery seems to be the front-facing camera, which is listed as having 3.68 megapixels, which is likely to be a mistake. We also know that the Galaxy Note 4 will be launched with Android 4.4.3 KitKat operating system out of the box.
However, we can safely assume that it will be among the first to receive Android L update. What do you think about Galaxy Note 4’s powerful hardware configuration?
