UK-bound Samsung Galaxy S 4 gets benchmarked, specs revealed

UK-bound Samsung Galaxy S 4 gets benchmarked, specs revealed
Once again, a smartphone that's supposed to be the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S 4 has been given the benchmark treatment. The device in question bears the model name GT-I9505 and is allegedly tailored for the U.K. market. 

What is revealed by the screenshots below, in addition to the handset's impressive score of 22,630 points on AnTuTu, is that the U.K.-bound Galaxy S 4 will likely come with a Samsung-made SoC, presumably the Exynos 5 Octa, with a maximum clock speed of about 1.9GHz. This lines up nicely with the latest rumors, suggesting that Samsung's own chip will be used for the Galaxy S 4 units sold in Europe, while U.S. models will get the Snapdragon 600. Surprisingly, the GPU reported by AnTuTu is the Adreno 320 by Qualcomm, while the Exynos 5 Octa is known to have a PowerVR SGX 544 graphics unit. Whether that's a mistake on the app's side or not remains to be seen. Just in case there was any doubt about it, 2GB of RAM are on board.

Further specs listed in the leaked benchmark results also confirm the use of a 1080p display, which is expected to have a diagonal size of 5 inches. The main camera on the Samsung Galaxy S 4 should have a maximum resolution of 13 or so megapixels, just like other sources indicate, while the front-facing snapper will be of 2MP. Out of the box users will be treated to Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean, which will surely have its stock interface swapped with Samsung's custom skin. 
 
Although these screenshots come from a supposedly "trusted" source, it is always advisable to take leaks like these with a grain of salt. Whether the information revealed by the benchmark is correct or not will become known shortly after the Samsung Galaxy S 4 is announced officially March 14.

Tegra 4 - Power Hog. The idea behind Octa cores is not to triumph benchmarks but to yield better battery life. Quite frankly even Snapdragon S4 enough to get good performance yields in day to day life !

WOW, in 2012 and 2011 Exynos was "the fastest chip in the world!!11!!1! It's the best on benchmarks" according to Samsung fans, now it is to yield better battery, seriously guys you are starting to get like Apple fans.

Of course you choose to ignore the facts like a typical Samsung hater. The Tegra 4 is rumored to be a tablet beats like the power hungry A6X and Exynos 5 dual. If you want to compare cell phone processors, compare the Octa with the Tegra 4i, the really gimped out version of the Tegra 4 that they designed for small cell phone batteries.

You are a more of a delusional HTC fanboy than I thought.

its not that big of a deal to be power hog! and its just a bubble made by the competitors thats tegra 4 is power hog! if u want to have ur mobile's battery last like million days go get a nokia 3310... its 2013! its power age and i want raw power! rarrrrrrrrrrrrr

It's not a bubble. A15 doesn't work well for cellphones without the big little configuration. And the one power saving core in the Tegra 4 wasn't enough, hence the tegrav4i. If power didn't matter the Exynos Octa and Tegra 4i wouldnt exist. The Exynos woukd be blazing the quad A15 at all times and crush every benchmark.

You are so gullible. What makes you think Nvidia didnt apply some extreme form of cooling and overclocking? Its only the final product that counts

IDK whether Tommorow we'll be surprised or disappointed :/

23. nikenturd unregistered

Well, typical Nvidia, they said the same thing when the Tegra 3 was under development, That is why I dont trust them , plus you have to wonder why handset makers are reluctant to get the Tegra 4 chip which means, it wasn't designed for battery efficiency. You can't just brag on how fast your chip runs on Antitu while disregarding the rest, Nvidia thinks thay can lure customers that way...

Yeah, I hope we will not be disappointed.

The chip is seemingly good. Nice, nice.

why the f**k bother and create a 2013 flagship with 16gb memory onboard that you have usable only less than 10gb. most games out there require the game data to be stored in the built in memory and those are big games. and again Samsung will tell us it will be available in 16/32/64gb variations which will never come.

In case if you don't know there is a tweak in which your 64gb sd card can be used as internal memory while switching the phone'sinternal memory to become an sd card. This requires rooting and stuffs and works in sgs3 and sgn2. You can find it in xda-developers.com.

ofcourse i know. i want it out of the box to be superior. the trick as you say from Mattiasdj is great but have a lot of drawbacks. in case you are wondering the internal memory has a lot better R/W speeds than the external.

yeah but i'm sure alot of us don't wanna root our phones.

Also if 2GB of RAM is not enough there's a software called "RAM EXPANDER" in play store which if you have a 16, 32 GB memory card class 10, that it lets you interchange the memory of you're to the phone memory, so this will turn you're phone giving up to 6gb of RAM. Like galaxy storm said Rooting is required. ™

i am sure 2gigs of ram are more than enough. but the first issue is getting dissappointing. what dissapint me also is Samsung's lying policy about all the wonderful accessories that eill go along with your device, such as wireless charging kit for the S3 and Note2 but those also never appeared in the market. do not get me wrong i always have bought Samsung especially because of their unlocked BL and great support @ XDA, but this is getting quite boring on never delivering on their promises. Atleast other manufacturers deliver what they promise. Peace

One of the many reasons that I WILL NEVER BUY A PHONE WITHOUT SD EXPANSION!

24. nikenturd unregistered

I tried that tweak and it messed up the camera function....somehow I dont recommend tweaking your device in order to accommodate more storage.

I'd rather wait for 2morrow but good score though :)

This ones running on qc snapdragon 600. Excellent score btw.

8. nikenturd unregistered

All I care about is the Exynos chip that powers this thing, Im guessing rougjly about 2k-3k more.

The 1.9GHz is the SnapDragon variant not the Octa, scores also confirm that.

Right? That's the same I thought when reading the article. UK is getting the Snapdragon 600, both the 1.9 GHz in the clock of the CPU (Exynos octac uses 1.8) and the GPU Adreno 320 says that. Nick, please correct that "presumably the Exynos 5 Octa"!

Gosh, this is obviously a Snapdragon version.

There are 3 versions of the A15, Exynos 5 series, wonder which one will they be using? Hope its the E5450®

this number is exactly the same as that of ONE. what does it mean? S4 using snapdragon 600?

21. TROLL

600 is just an overclocked CPU giving an extra 200Mhz, 1.7 Ghz
