Samsung GT-I9525 surfaces on Nenamark 2, packs Android 5 and 1.8 GHz CPU

Samsung GT-I9525 surfaces on Nenamark 2, packs Android 5 and 1.8 GHz CPU
Now, what could this be - a Samsung handset named GT-I9525... It obviously sounds like a high-end model, but as much as we'd like to have some extra details, we do not. You see, the thing is this handset has just appeared in Nenamark 2's databases, and according to the entry, it's going to run Android 5. This alone should make us pretty intrigued, right?

In addition to the rather interesting platform version, the GT-I9525 may also sport an HD resolution of 720 x 1280, 1.8 GHz processor and the Mali-400 MP graphics chip. That's pretty much all the available information we have to work with, and it's definitely not much. The model number, though, makes things really strange, because it means it's unlikely for this phone to e a successor to the Galaxy S III. The GS III's model number is I9300, while we recently saw the I9400 appear as a model (again on Nenamark 2). So the I9525 will probably not be the GS IV, but then what could it be? Interestingly, we already know about a phone with the model number I9500, and this one is said to be coming with Samsung and Intel's Tizen OS. The one logical conclusion we can make is that the I9525 is come kind of a variation of the I9500.

We should keep in mind that all of these handsets and model numbers are still only rumors and speculation, until Samsung decides to announce things publicly.

No, better sgs3 Nexus I'm buying immediately...... Instead of sgs3 I've bought old Galaxy Nexus ;-) And replaceable battery please!! I'd like to survive whole day when on vacation! Permission manager would be great too..... as to say for Android

No way Android 5 is going to be released this soon. If it is, Google is crazy. Hell, quite a few manufactures haven't even made the complete jump to ICS yet, let alone Jelly Bean... Of course, if Google sat around and waited for the manufacturers, we'd never see any updates. *sigh* I guess the only remedy is to buy Nexus devices and only Nexus devices...

Or you can understand that you don't necessarily need to have the most recent version of Android the second it's released. I'm on ICS right now and I'm perfectly fine with it. Although, I am looking to have a new phone before or by Christmas.

Or - you can understand that you own an Android device - and you can root it and install a custom rom on it.

Recently there was a leak of a Sony device with Android 5.0 Nenamark benchmarks. I think I have an idea of what's happening here. Google's finally come to it's senses. It's partnered with some manufacturers (or vice versa) and are testing the next Android iteration (5.0) with their hardware as well. This is probably the only way we can avoid a situation where Google Android 5.0 released - (say) May 2013 First Samsung/HTC/Sony Android 5.0 device - November-December 2013 Who knows, by then Google comes up with Android 5.1 itself!

Yeah I think it's a fill gap measure until the S4' release. Both this and "i9400" have Mali 400 GPU which means the current processor version. I see Samsung releasing an upgraded S3 with Note 2' chip(possibly even a bit more clocked), 2GB RAM, RGB matrix, and enlarged battery. That should keep the S3 on top comfortably. Btw, I wish they name it the Galaxy S3 B.. tired of all that "+" crap
