A new Galaxy S4 version reportedly packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor has appeared in AnTuTu benchmarks.
The SHV-E330S is said to be the Galaxy S4 model in question, a handset said to hit South Korea later this year. In addition to the rumored Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, the device is also going to offer LTE-Advanced support, rbmen says.
However, the device is not official at this time.
According to the screenshot above, the SHV-E330S would run Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and have a 2265MHz (or 2.3GHz) processor. Surprisingly, we’re not looking at an AnTuTu score that you’d expect for a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor – 24179 is actually lower than the performance of the current Galaxy S4 models.
As you can see in the table below, both the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 (GT-I9505) and the Exynos 5 Octa (GT-I9500) models score better in the same benchmark test. At the same time, if today’s benchmark is real, the SHV-E330S could still be in testing, which would explain the lower scores.
However, a similarly found benchmark for an Pantech IM-A880 device that’s also rumored to have a Snapdragon 800 processor inside showed a much better score, surpassing the current Galaxy S4 models. The IM-A880 is not official either, so it makes sense to assume that, if real, that benchmark has also been performed on a device that’s still in testing. We’ll know more details about these handsets later this year, when they should be unveiled.
The Galaxy S4 with LTE-Advanced support is expected to launch in September in South Korea, not that we have any official details for you at this time.
In addition to this Galaxy S4 SHV-E330S and the Pantech IM-A880, various other upcoming smartphones are rumored to come with a Snapdragon 800 inside, including the HTC One Max (T6), the HTC Xperia ZU (Togari), the Galaxy Note 3 and the LG Optimus G2.
