Purported Galaxy S IV benchmark results appear
posted by Ray S. / Feb 12, 2013, 6:55 AM
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:

|Galaxy S III (I9300)||Galaxy Note II (N7100)|
|Egypt HD - Offscreen (1080p)||4672 Frames

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.

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.
