Galaxy S4 I9507: Mysterious GS4 version surfaces at numerous locations
0. phoneArena 14 Aug 2013, 03:19 posted on
It's beginning to look like Samsung is working on yet another Galaxy S4 version. After the I9500 (Exynos 5 Octa), the I9505 (Snapdragon 600), and the I9506 (Snapdragon 800), we're now hearing of a different version - the I9507. Unfortunately, information about this new Galaxy S4 model is pretty scarce right now...
This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

maybe Samsung is doing the Nexus 5 and this is it...

If i9506 is the SD800, there is a possibility that i9507 could be the new Exynos 5420 :)

That can't be, as it uses Adreno 320, so it can be only one real options:
I bet on a Dual SIM model.

Galaxy... how adequate a moniker it has turned out to be. Just as a galaxy has billions of stars, a Galaxy will have billions of variations it seems.

It's nothing to get too excited about - the GT-i9507 is simply a regional version of the GT-i9505 with LTE-A (dual-mode LTE) and maybe larger 64GB internal ROM for Australia's Optus network and nothing more!
Unfortunately its not based on the GT-i9506, which has the faster Snapdragon 800 CPU, 32 or 64GB internal ROM and it seems with the FM radio making a comeback! Now that's the one to get excited about.

I was thinking the same thing. Just a regional specific phone.

It seems that Samsung want to change the wisdom Apple a day keeps doctor a way to Galaxy everyday keeps all doctors a way Lol.

The i9507 might turn out to be true. Remember the galaxy s2 had an galaxy r?

As I mentioned above, it is for the Optus Australia network and in their words:
"The Samsung dual mode GALAXY S4 is scheduled to be available on the Optus network from September, with Samsung GALAXY S4 mini commercial availability to be announced shortly."

May be another new S4 version with E 5420.

If that's true will have to sell the Exynos S4 and get the latest more powerful version

Maybe they are making another version of the active for other carriers?

What's the model number of the Google Edition of the GS4? What if this is that? Also, what if this is a T-Mobile variant of the GS4 Active? Or what if Samsung is basing the Note 3 on the GS4 and this is a test/prototype unit? Wow, that's a lot of 'what if's'! I guess we'll have to wait and find out.

It's probably a dual SIM version. If it's a Samsung variant, and it originated in Asia, it's probably dual SIM (or, more unlikely, a special model for a carrier that uses different frequencies) variant. I hope they don't make as many variants of the S4 as they did with the S2. lol

It is probably with an exynos 5420 cpu.
S4 with S800 is I9506, this one is I9507, it means higher variant of S4.
25. aniallation (Posts: 3; Member since: 16 Aug 2013)
Maybe. However Exynos 5420 is slower then S800. Apparent AnTuTu benchmarks of Note 3 with 5420 are around 32k. Which are still beat by the Xperia Z Ultra with it's S800 which gets a score of around 34k, where stock S800 devices can get over 36k at times. S4-Octa by comparision gets 28k. Also I have a Samsung Galaxy SII HD LTE and it's model number I757M. which weirdly enough is a higher then the S3, which is I747M in America. Just the way things work at Samsung.
