The possible specifications for Samsung’s next flagship device have been possibly revealed by the benchmarking site AnTuTu and reveals that previous rumours pointing to the new Galaxy S device dumping the Exynos processor for a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor is in fact incorrect.
Late yesterday evening news came in via the benchmarking site Antutu saying that the site had uploaded the benchmark results for the Samsung Galaxy S IV way before it’s announcement. According to the benchmark result page “Its CPU is Exynos 5410, 1.8GHz. And the GPU is PowerVR 544MP. This may be the international version according to Samsung’s custom. It may adopts another version of hardware in the U.S.A.” This could mean that the North American variant may in fact have the rumoured Qualcomm chip, but there’s no way to be sure at the moment.
Impressively the Galaxy S IV knocks up an impressive score of 24894 which is actually the highest score recorded for smartphones. The results also show that it’s got a whopping 8 core CPU with 2GB of RAM. It’s also reported to have either 16 or 32GB versions. The benchmark also shows that the Galaxy S IV has a 13 Megapixel rear camera, and a 2.1 megapixel front facing camera. The previous rumours of a 4.99 inch screen have also been ‘confirmed’ in this benchmark also with an overall resolution of 1920×1080.
Like with most rumours we can’t guarantee that these are legit, so take them with a pinch of salt & wait a few days for Samsung’s big event!
