In typical high-end Samsung fashion, the Galaxy Note 4 is tipped to come in two chipset flavours when it drops later this year, with European markets bracing for the Exynos 5433 model and North America/Asia awaiting the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 variant.
Good news for us in Europe, as our Exynos 5433 Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has benchmarked higher than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 on AnTuTu.
To be honest, we never pay too much heed to benchmark results, and we’re sure the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be perfectly capable in either incarnation, but as Europeans, it’s undoubtedly welcome news. Certainly no complaints here.
The 64-bit 8-core Exynos 5433 breaks through the 40,000-barrier at 40,303, a few hundred juice-o-units higher than the Snapdragon 805 at 37,780, and not too far off old King Silicon, the NVIDIA Tegra K1 at 41,736.
That juice will come in handy for powering the Samsung Galaxy Note 4’s rumoured 5.7in QHD display (possibly curved in some "niche" markets), which would be the same size as the Galaxy Note 3, but with many more pixels. It’s also tipped to come with 3GB of RAM, and a rear camera of, er, some megapixels.
In keeping with the tradition started at IFA 2011, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 launch will almost certainly go down at IFA 2014 in Berlin, which gets underway in early September.
