Purported Galaxy S IV benchmark results appear

Purported Galaxy S IV benchmark results appear
And here it is - the Galaxy S IV has finally appeared in the online database of GLBenchmark. Of course, we shouldn't take this information too seriously yet, because it may easily be some other device, but for now the sources are pretty excited about these results, and even if there's the slightest chance of them being true, this means that it's impossible for us to ignore them.

The handset is shown as the Samsung SHV-E300S, but this shouldn't bother you, because it means that we're most probably looking at the South Korean version of the Galaxy S IV. Interestingly, the handset is also listed with a Qualcomm chipset MSM8960. Naturally, it's very unlikely for the international version of the GS IV to come with a Qualcomm processor, especially when Samsung recently announced the Exynos 5 Octa processor, which is more than up to the task. On the other hand, it wouldn't be exactly shocking if we see the South Korean version launch with a SoC by Qualcomm, so the credibility of the benchmark results seems to be intact for now.

And now, let's get to the real deal! According to these GLBenchmark results, the Galaxy S IV has scored 4672 Frames (41.3 Fps) in the Egypt HD C24Z16 - Offscreen (1080p) test, and 4450 Frames (39.4 Fps) in the Egypt HD C24Z16 - Onscreen test. These are some excellent results, but who knows, they may be even better on the international GS IV.

One of the best Android phones around, the Nexus 4, for example, scores 3803 Frames (33.7 Fps) in the offscreen test and 4977 Frames (44.0 Fps) in the onscreen test, which shows that it's not much slower, but still the GS IV should have some advantage.

The benchmark info also confirms the rumors that the Galaxy S IV will come with a resolution of 1080x1920 pixels, while software-wise the handset will run Android 4.2.1.

Check out the following table for some additional comparisons of the Galaxy S IV's GLBenchmark results:

QUAD CORE VS DUAL CORE N4 should be faster

You don't actually believe that they are going to use Qualcomm chipset mainly for their GS4, do you?

Galaxy s4 will have a snapdragon s4 pro. The first phone to have an a15 processor will be the Nexus 5 with a tegra 4. The Galaxy Note 3 will launch in the fall with a quad core exynos 5 though.

Disagreed GS4 regional version will only have QC chipset Im not sure it will be a15 or a9....or octa or quad But im quite sure Exynose will be mainly used for their upcoming GS4

i doubt it the only reason they used s4 for the s3 was because they did not have lte ready for the exynos which is why they used exynos in most countries and released the note 2 with exynos and lte because they managed to make it work together...i am certain that here in europe it will have exynos in some form and i would also bet that in US it will have exynos+ lte as they have no reason for snapdragon...samsung wants to use many of its own chips etc as it will make there profit margins bigger

That's only for onscreen results. The GSIV pushes more pixels due to its higher resolution (Full HD vs 720), so the result is a lower score. The offscreen test tells the true results because native resolution is ignored.

The Nexus 4 on screen is limited 720p, while the other supposed GS4 us outputting 1080p.

We're talking about graphics performance alone. Nobody should conclude Nexus 4 is faster solely from these data.

I believe that is incorrect only because I just did a benchmark test with my GS3 and pulled 5430 frames!!

That isn't the Exynos. Although I wouldn't be surprised that they used a Qualcomm 600 or 800 instead of the Exynos Octa. Currently the Exynos 5 dual needs the huge Nexus 10 battery so if the Exynos Octa isn't ready in time for the GS4, Qualcomn it is. I really hope they don't use the same S4 pro that is in the Nexus 4, padfone 2, oppo 5, DNA, xiaomi phone 2, Xperia Z, most likely the HTC one etc. That would really suck if they used the S4 pro.

Htc One has a 1.7ghz snapdragon s4 pro. It will be almost identical benchmarks to the nexus 4.

Snapdragon is better than Exynos. (S3 vs Optimus G) Check the reviews before hitting the unlike button.
