Last week, reports came out suggesting that Samsung is planning a Snapdragon 810-based variant of the Galaxy Note 4, and that the company has already started testing the device on some major carriers in South Korea. While the report couldn't confirm the testing carrier list, it had speculated that LG+, SKT, and Olleh, might be the ones testing the smartphone.
Now a leaked set of benchmarks by Geekbench (via Slashgear) on Friday indicate the anticipated Galaxy Note 4 variant will come with SM-N916S model number and ship with Android 5.0 Lollipop. It notes that the device is powered by an octa-core ARM Qualcomm MSM8994 processor clocked at 1.55GHz and around 3GB of RAM.
Notably, the Snapdragon 810 is an upcoming high-end 64-bit octa-core processor by Qualcomm, that is not yet launched or detailed by the company - though it recently dispelled rumours of a delay. Previously, reports had speculated that the new 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 includes four Cortex-A57 cores clocked at 1.9GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.5GHz.
To remind you, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is already available in two processor variants depending on different regions - an octa-core Samsung Exynos 5433 SoC (quad-core 1.3GHz Cortex-A53 + quad-core 1.9GHz Cortex-A57) variant  and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 clocked at 2.7GHz.
Meanwhile, there are also rumours about a new Samsung Exynos processor that will feature Cat. 10 LTE connectivity. According to Korean media reports, the new Exynos chipset might ship with upcoming Samsung devices as early as next year, probably in the rumoured Galaxy S6 as well.
