We are seeing more fresh leaks of the Galaxy Note 5 today, as promised in yesterday’s Sunday Summary. SamMobile is now confirming the widely accepted rumor that the Note 5 will feature 4 GB of RAM, a popular spec for late-2015 flagships it would seem. More importantly, the report also confirms that the Note 5 will use Samsung’s own Exynos 7422 SoC.
This in-house Samsung SoC features a single-chip solution, including an Octa-core 64-bit CPU, GPU, 4 GB of RAM, storage, as well as the Shannon 333 LTE modem all into the same package. In terms of performance, the Galaxy Note 5 is lining up to be absolutely dominant in benchmarks. If these rumors hold up, the Note 5 should be the beast we are all hoping for in.
There is still the downside of the expandable memory and removable battery being left out, but this is not entirely confirmed yet. I definitely plan to pick up a Note 5 on release day, it is by far my favorite release of the year. We now expect that Samsung will announce the Note 5 a bit early, perhaps around mid-August to avoid competing with Apple’s iPhone 6S. We should see even more details leak out in the next few weeks, keep it locked to HOA for the latest!
