The Snapdragon 800-equipped Galaxy S4 with LTE-A to become internationally available?
Earlier today a leaked AnTuTu benchmark was uncovered by GSMArena. It has since set the web abuzz teasing the possibility that a refreshed international Galaxy S4 is in the works.

The device in the test had a model number I9506, a digit above the current (international), Snapdragon 600-equipped Galaxy S4 that goes by a model number of I9505. The benchmark itself shows the device scoring an impressive 31123 points while running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 800 clocked at 2.3GHz – the same processor that currently does the heavy-lifting on the South Korea-only LTE-A version of the phone. Said plainly, we could very well be looking at an upcoming LTE-A capable international version of Samsung's flagship. Interestingly enough, this version of the phone has managed to score higher than its supposed South Korean twin. As to why that is, we can't tell at this time.

Of course, a salty approach is advised, as we await an official statement by Samsung. That being said, do join us for a little speculation in the comment section.
