Galaxy Note 5 benchmark confirms a few key specs

The Galaxy Note 5 is expected to be a real powerhouse. Rumor has it the device will pack cutting-edge hardware and a gorgeous new design. Now a recent benchmark for the Verizon variant seems to confirm at least a few of its specs.

A Verizon version of the flagship phablet popped up on Geekbench this week with the model number SM-N920V. The listing doesn’t reveal much, but it does seem to confirm that the Galaxy Note 5 will pack an octa-core Exynos 7420 processor. The device also boasts 3664MB of RAM, which we assume will get rounded up to 4GB at launch.

Based on earlier leaks we’re also expecting the Galaxy Note 5 to feature a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, an S Pen and expandable storage. Samsung will likely also announce the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus with similar specs, a curved display and no stylus at the same time. We may even get a new Gear A smartwatch too.

Samsung is expected to unload all these new devices next month on either August 12 or August 13, with a release slated for later that month. The company’s goal is apparently to beat Apple to the punch with its new lineup, though it’s unclear if an extra month will be enough to give the Galaxy Note 5 any real edge over the next generation of iPhones.
