UK-bound Samsung Galaxy S 4 gets benchmarked, specs revealed
Once again, a smartphone that's supposed to be the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S 4 has been given the benchmark treatment. The device in question bears the model name GT-I9505 and is allegedly tailored for the U.K. market.
What is revealed by the screenshots below, in addition to the handset's impressive score of 22,630 points on AnTuTu, is that the U.K.-bound Galaxy S 4 will likely come with a Samsung-made SoC, presumably the Exynos 5 Octa, with a maximum clock speed of about 1.9GHz. This lines up nicely with the latest rumors, suggesting that Samsung's own chip will be used for the Galaxy S 4 units sold in Europe, while U.S. models will get the Snapdragon 600. Surprisingly, the GPU reported by AnTuTu is the Adreno 320 by Qualcomm, while the Exynos 5 Octa is known to have a PowerVR SGX 544 graphics unit. Whether that's a mistake on the app's side or not remains to be seen. Just in case there was any doubt about it, 2GB of RAM are on board.
Further specs listed in the leaked benchmark results also confirm the use of a 1080p display, which is expected to have a diagonal size of 5 inches. The main camera on the Samsung Galaxy S 4 should have a maximum resolution of 13 or so megapixels, just like other sources indicate, while the front-facing snapper will be of 2MP. Out of the box users will be treated to Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean, which will surely have its stock interface swapped with Samsung's custom skin.
Although these screenshots come from a supposedly "trusted" source, it is always advisable to take leaks like these with a grain of salt. Whether the information revealed by the benchmark is correct or not will become known shortly after the Samsung Galaxy S 4 is announced officially March 14.
