Eyeing for the Galaxy Note 4 this holiday season? Well, you might want to read the following text before you get one. Rumors recently suggests that Samsung is currently testing a new batch of Galaxy Note 4 devices running the latest Snapdragon 810 processor which will due out early next year. Existing Galaxy Note 4 devices are available in two variants; the Samsung in-house chip Exynos 7 Octa CPU and the Snapdragon 805, be reminded though that both SoC’s are based on 32-Bit architecture which will rather inhibit Samsung’s commitment for a future-proof device. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 on the other hand will easily resolve the issue and everything that a 32-bit architecture is missing as it simply feature a true 64-bit environment, giving any device with a 64-bit capable OS such as the new Android 5.0 Lollipop to perform its full potential.

The alleged Snapdragon 810 equipped units of the Galaxy Note 4 is said to be under testing with the three major mobile carriers in South Korea and when all is going as planned, we’ll be seeing the new Galaxy Note 4 units with the new Snapdragon 810 processor with them. Interestingly, the said upcoming processor from Qualcomm will also bring the new Adreno 430 graphics processor to the table which will further improve the performance of devices with the chipset.

Despite the recent news of Snapdragon 810 CPU being delayed for some issues, Qualcomm has falsified such information and claims that the availability for its upcoming 64-bit processor is still on track for the early next year debut. This seem to have supported any planned devices with the chipset to be available on time next year. Though Samsung didn’t comment on such developments, but we strongly believe that rumors like this won’t be spreading around when there are no basis behind them. With all that in mind, all we can do for now is to wait until further details pops-in.
