Like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle that fall into place, little by little we find more about the Samsung Galaxy S3, a week away from its official unveiling date on May 3, which, we hope, will bring to a climactic end months of intense rumors and speculations. We found out earlier today that the Galaxy S3 will boast a 1.4GHz Exynos 4 Quad processor, but the rest of the specs are still unconfirmed. Thankfully, some fresh AnTuTu benchmark results revealed more than just the super phone’s performance, but possibly some of its internals as well.
First, let’s see out how the Galaxy S3’s quad-core Exynos processor performed compared to its competitors. According to the AnTuTu benchmark results, which synthetically measures the CPU and GPU power of the phone, Samsung Galaxy S3 came ahead of the Asus Transfomer Prime. The Transformer Prime, of course, is the proud bearer of another quad-core processor belonging to Nvidia.
Speed is good and all, but we’re more interested to see what other specs of the Galaxy S3 were listed on the benchmarking app. Aside from the quad-core processor, we can see that the phone sports a 4.7-inch screen with 1280 x 720 resolution. There’s 1GB of RAM onboard, an impressive 12MP rear camera, and a 2MP front camera. The listed Android 4.o Ice Cream Sandwich is not really a surprise.
Of course, this isn’t the first benchmark test result of the supposed next Samsung Galaxy phone. A couple of days back, Phone Arena shared some GL Benchmark scores that confirmed the Mali-400 GPU running on the flagship phone, and show it handily beating the iPhone 4S and HTC One X.
Sounds quite like a beast of a phone, huh? Now, if only we could see some pictures of the phone leaked without any disguise. Are you getting more excited about the Samsung Galaxy S3 with each passing day? Or is it the other way around?
