Samsung Galaxy Note could sport Exynos CPU, 4GB RAM

A recent report from GSM Arena claims that Samsung's next big thing could include a homegrown processor and plenty of memory.

The forthcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 5 may draw power from a Samsung Exynos 7422 processor, according to a recent GSM Arena report.

Alleged to be an improved take on the Exynos CPU found in the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge , the chip could feature an integrated GPU and modem.

Other specifications for the plus-sized phone may include 32GB of internal storage and 4GB of RAM. It isn't known if Samsung will include a microSD card in this model; this year's top-of-the-line flagships have eschewed removable storage.

Rumored to measure 5.7 inches with a 2,560x1,440-pixel display, the Note 5 is expected to carry over the same screen found in its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 4 . Given Samsung's history, however, we might look for improved stylus features and new software touches.

Samsung has scheduled a press event for August 13 where it's expected the Galaxy Note 5 takes center stage, potentially along with the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+. CNET will be on the ground covering the event live.

Samsung did not respond to a request for comment.
