It was just yesterday that we read an interesting report from South Korea, claiming that Samsung has Exynos 5 Octa issues, the kind that pressured the company to look at Qualcomm Snapdragon SoCs for its…
With less than two weeks to go until Samsung unveils its fourth-generation Galaxy S model, a new benchmark leak seems to reveal its specs and features.
According to a new AnTuTu test, here’s what the Galaxy S4 will have to offer:
Obviously, we can't confirm any of this right now, and we’re certainly looking forward to Samsung’s March 14 New York-based Galaxy S4 event for official specs and features for the handset.
However, assuming we’re looking at an actual Galaxy S4 benchmark here, we’ll notice a few interesting things.
First of all, these AnTuTu screenshots seem to suggest that the Galaxy S4 will indeed sport an Exynos 5 Octa processor. We’ve seen many reports to date that claimed either that the handset will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 SoC or that some Galaxy S4 versions (namely LTE ones) will pack Qualcomm processors, while the others will feature a Samsung-made next-gen CPU.
With that in mind, we’ll also focus on that listed GSM/WCDMA/LTE support which is very interesting, and seems to suggest that Exynos 5 Octa-based Galaxy S4 units will come with LTE capabilities. In such a case, will Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processors be still needed?
As for overall performance, it looks like the Galaxy S4 is ready to blow past some of the competition, topping the AnTuTu Benchmark test with a total score of 24894. However, while the Galaxy S4 does much better than the LG Optimus G, the Nexus 4, the Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy S3 in this test, none of the recent flagship devices are listed including the Sony Xperia Z, LG Optimus G Pro or the HTC One.
We’ll be back with more Galaxy S4 details in the coming days, as we expect plenty of leaks to hit the web before the device is officially announced.
