The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Phablet has appeared today on a web test, as always, Samsung R&D (Research and development) department is doing some routine checking and tests on any new device, including browser and performance benchmarking.
A device codenamed "Samsung ZenZero" running Samsung browser 3.2 on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop appeared on HTML5test website. This is the code name allegedly being given to the rumored Samsung Galaxy Note 5 edge. This model will reportedly come with curved glass on both sides of the 5.4-inch or 5.5-inch Super AMOLED screen.
Galaxy Note 5 will also be powered exclusively with an Exynos chipset of Sammy's own making. Exynos 7422 is being tested for use on the unit. This chip would go beyond the usual chipset and include the CPU, GPU, RAM, native storage, and a Samsung LTE modem in one single package.
As you would expect, the Galaxy Note 8 is on top of the rumor news right now and we have another one for you today. The Note 8 was just spotted on HTML5 browser benchmarking site earlier and it looks as if the handset will indeed be sporting Android Nougat 7.1.1 just like everyone is anticipating.
Although the smartphone didn't exactly show up as the Galaxy Note 8, it wasn't hard to figure out given that the model number of the phone in question was SM-N950U. In the benchmarking test, the device scored 517 points, which is quite impressive once you consider that the highest theoretically possible score is 555 on the test. Samsung Internet 6.0 was used as the browser during the testing. More importantly, the SM-N950U was also running on Android version 7.1.1 Nougat.
