The Samsung Galaxy Premier
isn't exactly what one would call a secret. Thanks to all the leaks, we know its model name – GT-I9260, as well as some of its more important hardware specs. It is said that the smartphone is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, has a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED HD display, and the camera on its back is of 8 megapixels. We even saw the device on the AnTuTu website
a few days ago with a benchmark result of 7736 points.
Interestingly, the Samsung Galaxy Premier has been benchmarked again, this time using GLBenchmark, which measures graphics performance. And thanks to the results that were posted online, we now think we know what processor exactly ticks under the smartphone's hood. The GPU inside it is the PowerVR SGX 544 – exactly what complements the OMAP4470 SoC
and its two Cortex-A9 cores.
As for the benchmark results, they aren't anything to write home about, but then again, one has to keep in mind that the Android 4.1 build that was running on that benchmarked Samsung Galaxy Premier was not in its final form. Besides, it is always the real-life performance of a smartphone that matters most, not the scores it gets when benchmarked.
There is still no word as to when the Samsung Galaxy Premier is expected to materialize, but given all the leaks we are being treated to, an official announcement might come pretty soon. Pricing and launch date are also up in the air for now.Thanks for sending this in!
