Samsung GT-I9500 Galaxy S IV appears in benchmarks with 1.8 GHz CPU, possibly the Exynos 5 Octa


Now, the rumors are that Samsung has a few versions of the Galaxy S IV in the labs, each with different Exynos processor, as it is struggling to keep the Cortex-A15 power consumption in state low enough for its 2013 flagship, even underclocking the cores when needed.

It seems that one of these versions is running the newly-announced Exynos 5 Octa as well, which with its twin quad-core big.LITTLE configuration, should be able to fit in the lower battery consumption requirements with more than enough juice to mark stellar performance in the same time.

The AnTuTu benchmark of this prototype has allegedly leaked, indicating a GT-I9500 handset, scoring nothing really impressive for now, but we can't help but note that the 1.8 GHz clock frequency is the default for the Octa's Cortex-A15 cores, while the Exynos 5 Dual starts from 1.7 GHz by default, so what the Galaxy S IV could be running is indeed the big.LITTLE configuration, which is also rumored to grace the Note III.
