The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is going to be a blockbuster device with market leading specs and stunning performance; we do not need a crystal ball to tell you that much. Every new edition in the Note smartphone range has been the same and things are unlikely to change when the phablet launches at IFA in Berlin next month. However, we have had a glimpse of just how powerful the Galaxy Note 4 will be as one of its variants blitzed a recent benchmark test.As with other Galaxy Note devices and indeed other Samsung flagships, the Galaxy Note 4 will come with two separate chipset configurations. One version sports the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon chip (the US variant), while the other version gets one of Samsung's own Exynos chips. That means for the Note 4, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 and the Exynos octa-core 5433, and it is this latter chip that was powering the benchmarked Note 4. The results are pretty staggering and show that the Galaxy Note 4 is another powerhouse smartphone that chews up the competition. The Exynos 5433 is a 64-bit processer that boasts four Cortex-A57 cores and four Cortex-A53 cores with a Mali-T760 GPU. In the AnTuTu benchmark test it benchmarked higher than any other mobile chip currently on the market, except from NVIDIA's Tegra K1 processer. The K1 is not available in any current smartphone and only appears in NVIDIA?s own Shield tablet, so that makes the Galaxy Note 4 the best performing handset out there, at least in benchmarks. We will have to see what the device benchmarks like with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 with Adreno 420GPU, but it is thought the Exynos at least keeps pace with it and in some cases out performs it. While earlier reports said the Galaxy Note 4 will get a whopping 4GB of RAM, it now seems that Samsung will use a more standard 3GB of RAM instead. Whether the Exynos is faster or the Snapdragon 805 is irrelevant as the Galaxy Note 4 is going to be a blisteringly fast smartphone either way. The device will be launched at Samsung's IFA event on September 3rd and will be available to buy from the middle of next month. source: Droid-Life
