With the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 launching next week, there is no surprise that the phablet is passing through benchmark software, with AnTuTu claiming the device passed through its tests. As is usually the case, it means the specs of the handset were also revealed while the Note 5 is shaping up to be the beast we all think it will be.Ok, before continuing, we know better than most that a benchmark score is not the be all and end all, there are numerous other factors in how a phone performs day to day. Having said that, having the best benchmark score is not a bad thing and is a decent indicator that a device is going to perform admirably. The Galaxy Note 5 will fit that billing nicely as it picked up an AnTuTu score of 68.345, which is better than anything else out there. The best performing device on AnTuTu though the first half of this year was Samsung's Galaxy S6 flagship with 67,520. As for the actual specs of the Galaxy Note 5, they follow what was expected and already leaked. There will be a 5.7-inch screen with Quad HD resolution, Samsung's own Exynos 7420 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 16 megapixel main rear camera, a 5 megapixel front facing lens, and Android Lollipop 5.1.1 with Samsung's own UI over the top. The Galaxy Note 5 will be launching at Samsung's Unpacked event on August 13.
