Samsung GT-I9500X, possibly the Galaxy S IV, listed on company's website
Benchmark results can often reveal details about upcoming Android smartphones and tablets. Sometimes they can even confirm a given device's existence. However, benchmarks aren't 100% reliable as the results are susceptible to manipulation. Yet a manufacturer's official website could be a lot harder to exploit.

Speaking of which, we've been seeing the Samsung model number GT-I9500 pop-up recently out of benchmark results, software development kits and firmware updates. Sadly, we aren't absolutely sure whether it is an Android device, presumably the rumored Samsung Galaxy S IV, or a TIZEN smartphone currently being tested (perhaps a less likely scenario).

What we are now pretty confident about, on the other hand, is that the device truly exists. The Samsung GT-I9500X has been spotted on the company's software download page, probably entered into the database early by mistake. In fact, it is still there listed among Samsung's other devices and their model names.

Unfortunately, the website does not reveal anything beyond that, nor does it indicate what the X stands for, but at least we can now be almost sure that the I9500 is real. Want to make a guess what smartphone the model name has been attached to? Sound it off down in the comments!

Sure sounds like the Galaxy S4 or whaatever they will call the device.
Read somewhere the number 4 is an unlucky number in Korea?
So probably not the Galaxy S4 name, but the next Galaxy devixe.

well with galaxy SII being i9100 and the galaxy SIII i9300 its most likely is indeed the S IV
and i doubt it's any other device..that's what i think anyway

and about the X attached to the i9500
maybe the name will be galaxy SX instead of S IV :P:P

sounds cool not sure exactly bc of the number which would indicate yes a galaxy but not quite the 4 seems more like it would be the release of the Tizen model and i can't wait to see the S4 compare to the Motorola X Phone that's if the X Phone is indeed a Nexus

To not call the device GSIV because of the superstition is laughable.
But a lot of Koreans are pretty serious about this kind of stuff, so it could be called Galaxy X
