Samsung has officially confirmed that the next Galaxy Unpacked event is scheduled on August 13 at Lincoln Center in New York, US. While the company remains tight-lipped about products expected at the launch, a new Galaxy Note 5 CDMA variant for the Verizon network appears online.
A Geekbench mentions that the Galaxy Note 5 for the Verizon network will use Samsung’s own Exynos 7420 mobile chipset and has 4GB of RAM. It appears to be the same octa-core chipset also reported
in the Galaxy S6 Edge+, and already used in the Galaxy S6 as well as Galaxy S6 Edge.
The phone in question carries SM-N920V model number, which is consistent with Verizon’sGalaxy Note 4 (SM-N910V) and Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N900V).
The Note 5 variant in the listing runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, which is expected to be factory loaded with the latest version of Samsung’s TouchWiz UI on top of it.
Meanwhile, earlier reports suggest that the global Galaxy Note 5 model SM-N20F will run a new Exynos 7422 mobile chipset with a built-in LTE modem. Those who’ve just joined the party, take a look at the live images of Galaxy Note 5.
