Samsung has vowed to reduce the number of phone models it produces by 20 to 30 percent by next year. However, new reports reaching us from Korea suggests the phone maker is contradicting it’s promise.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 was introduced in September 2014 with a Snapdragon 805 processor while another variant of the phablet was done with Samsung’s home-baked Exynos processor — the same routine was carried out with the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge which has two variants for each of the two processors.
According to Sammobile, a tech blog dedicated to Samsung news, the South Korean tech company is currently testing a version of the Galaxy Note 4 using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset.
While there is no concrete evidence to confirm this, we’ve seen Samsung do the same with some vof it’s flagships in the past. Eg., the Galaxy S5 (Snapdragon 801 CPU) was reinvented as Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A with a Snapdragon 805 chipset.
