The Galaxy Note series of phablets from Samsung has seen a lot of praise and popularity in the recent past. And now keeping up with the tradition, Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 4 is set to arrive sometime this year.
While rumors are abundant on the handset and flowing like the river Nile, we are finally able to tell that something related to the device has been confirmed. Indeed, it has now been reported that the Galaxu Note 4 will be arriving with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor.

Recently, sources close to the project told ZDNet Korea that Qualcomm has indeed agreed to sell Samsung the Snapdragon 805 for Galaxy Note 4. In fact, it is also offering the company a significant discount on the price, reportedly in the "two digits per chip" region.
"Its unclear why Qualcomm is extending this rare courtesy to Samsung but the report claims this has angered LG which believes it should receive a similar discount since its also an important Qualcomm customer," writes Sammobile.
Samsung is anyway known for releasing two versions of its flagship devices, one that has its custom Exynos processor and the other that uses chips from another company, mostly Qualcomm.
However, a leaked benchmark test for the Galaxy Note 4 in the past has showed that a version with Exynos 5433 CPU and another with the Snapdragon 805 are under testing.
While Samsung is yet to confirm any of this officially, it's better that you take everything with a pinch of salt. However, expect more to be revealed on the device in the coming days.
