Snapdragon 800

Earlier this week we reported on a benchmark sighting for the Samsung GT-I9506, which seems to be the global version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A. At the time all we had to go by was a single AnTuTu Benchmark image, but thanks to a new leak, we now have much more detailed benchmark info.

The new detailed system info comes to us from German-based site All About Samsung, and as you’ll see in the screenshot below, it not only spells out specifically that the phone is running on a Qualcomm MSM 8974 CPU (aka Snapdragon 800), it also mentions the presence of the Adreno 330 GPU. The other listed specs fall in line with what we are expecting from this GS4 variant as well.


While this latest information doesn’t necessarily prove anything, it certainly seems to lend further credence to the idea that an international GS4 LTE-A is in fact on its way in the not-too-distant future.

According to PocketNow, the GT-I9506 is also being tested in France, Italy, Spain and the UK. No word on what other regions or countries the GT-I9506 will arrive in.


So when is it coming? While an IFA reveal makes sense, it could really come any time between now and then. Also keep in mind that the existence of the GT-I9506 still remains unconfirmed for the time being, so take all of this with a grain of salt.

Still, for those that are currently on the fence about buying a Samsung Galaxy S4, it probably wouldn’t hurt to wait off a little bit longer to see how all of this plays out.

    A screen resolution of 480 dpi means this s4 will have a 4.6″ screen

    Good for those who has just brought the regular S4 and getting their shipping in the next few days ^^

    The note 3 probably will have a 800 so why put this on the GS 4?

    • Pose Lurker

      Choices, basically. Some people might not like the screen size of the N3 or need all that productivity.

  • Magnetic1

    I predict this phone will be blazing fast.
    Obvious as it may, how often can you be that accurate about the future.

    27886?! Isn`t that low for a s800 device?? It should be 30K+ at least. Am I missing something here??

  • Daniel O. Barga

    I hope it has an FM radio… for sure, this phone will be the perfect device.
