Not too long ago, a report hinted at the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 with a quad-core Snapdragon 810 processor on board. At the moment, the rumors suggest it is being tested at major Korean carriers, including LG+, SKT, and Olleh, and there’s no word if we’ll see a worldwide release, or if the handset will ever see the light of the day.
Recently, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 with model number SM-N916S was spotted on Geekbench, powered by the Snapdragon 810 chipset. The listing further shows Android 5.0 Lollipop as the operating system running on the handset.
To be honest, this isn’t new with Samsung, the company has a habit of launching a variant of their flagship devices with the latest chipset, even after the official launch of the handset. However, these variants are mostly launched for the Korean market, and in some cases a few other markets as well.
If you can’t recall, the Korean OEM also launched the LTE-A version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 which was powered by the quad-core Snapdragon 805 SoC.
There’s no official word from Samsung about the existence of the Snapdragon 810 powered variant, but if it’s true, we may get to see in the coming weeks. We’ll update you as soon as Samsung announces anything about the handset.
