Samsung GT-I9400 appears on Nenamark 2, probably the Galaxy S IV
If there's one good thing about benchmarks, it's that we sometimes get hints about upcoming devices. This particular one is very intriguing, as a phone with the model number GT-I9400 has been spotted doing its thing on the Nenamark 2 site. Judging by this model number, we can relatively safely conclude that this might be it - the Galaxy S IV.

Why do we think so? Well, the original Galaxy S is the I9000, the Galaxy S II is the I9100, and the Galaxy S III is the I9300. Although we can't be completely certain, it makes sense for the I9400 to be the Galaxy S IV. Of course, if you look closely at the screenshot, you'll notice that the device is listed with some pretty mediocre specs (for a GS IV), like a screen with WVGA resolution, and 1.2GHz CPU with Mali-400 MP GPU. This shouldn't disappoint you, as it doesn't mean that this isn't really the GS IV. In fact, when the GS III first leaked, it, too, was listed with such weak specs, but naturally, it later turned out to be the monster everyone expected it to be.

It may be a bit early, considering that Samsung isn't likely to announce the next Galaxy S until the middle of next year, but it's always fun when we start hearing rumors and speculation about an upcoming handset. Let's hope that this benchmark entry will be the first of many leaks about the Galaxy S IV!

Haha, if this was GS4 then SS would have a "burning platform" style self destruction in store.

This is NOT the final product.. SGS3 also had this resolution on first leak... this means nothing... I hope they use that octa-core Exynos on it...

Considering that it has Android 4.2 on board, I would think this is Samsung's testing device for it's software. Remember, each manufacturer has it's own design overlay on top of the Android OS. This is probably their way of testing to see how their specific overlay would work on a device.

lol and they are trying to prove there are not biased then post crap like this. This is NOT the gs4 its that note plus that was rumored a few days ago. You know the one for old people that just passed through the FCC with LTE onboard.

I can't wait to replace my S3 with a new phone that has inferior screen and the same GPU! This is TOTALLY the S4 and I believe everything I read on the internet!

No way Samsung is going for smaller screens. All they do nowdays is make it biger possible... it wont be long what we call now tablets will be called phones - let's hope not!

Well, maybe this is the SGS IV Super-Duper Mini!If the screen were 3", it would have a fantastic PPI of 311!

It mmay very well be the sign that Sammy may showcase the device as early as Feb or March....that would be awesome!

The problem is, sales may be flourishing for the 920 but come 2013 when post mwc season goes by, no one is really going to care and the majority of customers in the world from Asia will wait in anticipation for the s3 successor over the 920, by which time come may 2013 the 920 will be pretty much irrelevant and obsolete by then.

They are posting this so they get clicks and moneyz from naive people on this site. Why do you think they didn't mention WVGA resolution on the site link? Have to admit that they got me too, even though I came for the laughs in the comments.

lol .. why you think Samsung is Sony to give you such crappy specs in 2013? Sammy will bring the quad A15 Exynos monster with Full HD screen and great battery life ( as S3 now give you a good battery life )
