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.

Only a little bit higher than my galnote 2 (less than 1000 score). Go to hell octa core!

Its not octa, people who call it an octa are idiots its 2 processors, probably not even in the same bin. This will cause instability, lag, overheating for at most like a 10% battery life gain, they need to be focusing on making arm chips more power optimized not putting as many cpus/cores in the chip as possible.

Well even if it was 2 proccesors, theres still 8 cores. .... .. .

Hey people, they have "a few versions of the Galaxy S IV in the labs, each with different Exynos processor". So in other word, they are testing the devices right now.

Yah , i think so coz many S IV pictures leaked and they have different benchmark result and i think they are tottaly testing each phones that can make the highest score.

personally, im more excited to see what it looks like than anything else. The size of it is probably gonna make me grab it instantly or wait for something smaller when my upgrade comes around in june

Exactly. If it looks like crap I dont care how power full it is.

i agree. i hope it isnt bigger than 5 inches. i also hope it comes with atleast 2500mah battery.

It will be 4.99/5 inches, phones won't be getting any smaller anytime soon.

OctaCore... Still as powerful as Intel dual core?

companies must change the battery technology because the hardware become faster and more powerful , but right now i don't see any company introducing any new battery technology

the hardware might be getting faster, but its also getting much more battery proficient at the same time. What is killing the battery is how many things we have running at any given time. There are more apps running in the background and many of them do a lot more than they used to. Also, manufactures constantly clocking these chips super high so unknowing consumers think that its automatically faster hurts the battery. None of these chips need to be run over 1-1.4ghz at max. The chips themselves are anorexic power sippers compared to chips from even 2 or 3 years ago at the same clock speed.

You are so right. Our quad-core Qualcomm Krait S4 Pro's running at 1.0GHz are just as smooth as if they were on 1.5GHz on normal day to day operations. I think I like the savings in power consumption better than higher clock speeds when it comes to these newer chips, like the S800 & A-15 variants. +1 my firend.

At least my Galaxy Note 2 is a beast and I never care about how many percentage of battery left whenever I leave home.

That's why companies need to invest in nanotechnology!!! (Watch this, it is worth it and maybe our solution in the near future) /watch?v=PewMgx753G0
