Galaxy S4 specs and features revealed in new benchmark: LTE, Exynos 5 Octa and PowerVR SGX 544MP

A new AnTuTu benchmark leak reveals Galaxy S4 specs and features well ahead of its launch, although these details are yet to be confirmed by Samsung.
March 3, 2013

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:

  • 4.99-inch display with 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution
  • 1.8GHz eight-core Exynos 5 Octa CPU
  • 2GB of RAM
  • PowerVR SGX 544MP GPU
  • 16/32GB of storage
  • 13-megapixel camera with LED flash and HD video recording
  • 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera
  • Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • NFC
  • GPS, A-GPS
  • LTE support
  • Android 4.2 Jelly Bean

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.
