Soon after the model name GT-i9260 started appearing on the interwebs
, some were quick to speculate that a Galaxy Nexus followup was behind this enigmatic alphanumerical code. Then several days ago, it became more likely for a smartphone called Samsung Galaxy Premier
to bear the said model name. Furthermore, a photo of the Premier surfaced too, along with some rumored hardware specs – 4.65-inch Super AMOLED HD display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8MP camera, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean pre-loaded.
Now, some of you might be wondering just what that 1.5GHz CPU might be capable of. Well, wonder no more as a Samsung Galaxy Premier has already been benchmarked, it seems. An Android smartphone with the model name GT-i9268 has been spotted on AnTuTu – likely a TD-SCDMA version of the Galaxy Premier bound for China, and it scored 7,736 points
, which is a pretty decent figure. In comparison, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus averages about 5,500 points, while the U.S. version of the Samsung Galaxy S III
gets around 6100 points. An international Samsung Galaxy S III model, powered by a quad-core Exynos chip, goes beyond the 13,000 mark on AnTuTu, which is quite impressive.
But then again, one should keep in mind that high synthetic benchmark scores aren't always a guarantee that a smartphone would perform flawlessly. Let's just wait until the Samsung Galaxy Premier (or whatever it ends up being called) is announced, and then we'll judge it once we get to take it for a spin.
