Verizon version of Samsung Galaxy S IV may have hit benchmark site, shows 1.9GHz processor
A mystery handset that was benchmarked on the NenaMark2 site could be the Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy S IV. The model number, SCH-i545 is similar to the SCH-i535 which is Verizon's model number for the Samsung Galaxy S III. According to the benchmark site, the screen has a FHD resolution of 1080 x 1920 and a 1.9GHz processor. Android 4.2 is listed as being installed.

One point of contention is with the GPU used on the device on the NenaMark2 site. That device shows an Adreno 320 GPU while earlier speculation called for the return of a PowerVR GPU for the next version of Samsung's flagship Android phone. The latest information has the eagerly awaited device getting introduced at a event on March 15th and rolled out the next month in Europe. That would match the launch of the current flagship which also was launched first in Europe before eventually getting released in the U.S.

The launch of the Samsung Galaxy S IV is becoming an event similar to the annual introduction of the new Apple iPhone where leaked pictures are scrutinized and rumors and speculation become the order of the day.

yeah right its just a oc of the pro that everyone else is using. But I bet all the fandroid will still say it's the greatest thing ever. lmao... the Iphone will beat hands down.

the iPhone will beat hands down ? LOL iPhone 4S couldn't beat the GS2 ! iPhone 5 couldn't beat GS3, and i dont think iPhone 5S will beat the GS4 ;)

don't know what cave you've recently crawled out of but every iteration of the iphone is smoother and far superior to the samsung copycat counterpart. Anyway the iphone will come with rouge gpu and new cores based on real a15 not qualcomm pos especially old pos

Wrong and wrong. Besides having fewer features and less functionality, the iPhone no longer has the advantage in smoothness. Not since ICS.

But hey - iOS UI is the best for its unending consistency.... Same today as it was back in 2007. /sarcasm

You need to check sgs3 VS i5,sgn2 vs i5 reviews. BTW the gpu is Rogue.

Probably you are living in similar cave...Apple has ditched A15 altogether and went with custom implementation just like know Apple copied qualcomm here!

You mean based on real A15 like the A6, oh wait.... You mean a rogue GPU with all the cores removed and under clocked for the puny battery? Don't kid yourself fan boy. The S4 pro would smoke the A6 if it used IOS, safari, and a 4 inch screen below 720p. Don't believe me? The only benchmark iPhone 5 is good at is browser mark and that is because of Safari. Run browser mark using chrome on both the Nexus 4 and iPhone 5 and you will see the Nexus 4 smoke it without the Safari browser crutch it needs to win benchmarks. Lol

I don't like Apple and the iPhone, but nothing can beat the SGX543MP3 inside of it, not even the Adreno 320. And guess what, that beast of a GPU is running on a puny battery as you say and kills your Nexus 4. Rogue will be much more powerful and battery efficient.

You fell for the Apple/Anandtech marketing hype? When all they run benchmarks on is the GPU and the Safari browser, compared to slow ass Chrome, then it is easy to get fooled. You are forgetting one important thing and probably the most important piece in our smartphones. The SOC. The A6 has a dual core between A9 and A15 soc clocked at 1.3 ghz(clocked low for guess what? The Puny battery and the the software that is stripped of multi tasking and other features that it optimized for the puny battery. The Nexus 4 has a quad core that is between A9 and A15. You do the math there or let geekbench do it for you. My Nexus 4, as you put it, kills the current iphone and probably will beat the under clocked A7 in the iphone 5s.

Oh yeah, that's why in almost every graphics test the Adreno 320 scores right up next to the SGX543MP3, and on off screen tests when resolution isn't holding the Adreno 320 back, it outperforms the PowerVR. The only tests where it doesn't get beaten by the Adreno 320 is when you're testing it against the Nexus 4 which is affected by thermal throttling, and doesn't get scores nearly as high as they should be. Currently, the only GPU that beats the Adreno 320 is the Mali-T604 and the PowerVR SGX554MP4, Adreno 330 will fix that though. I'm sure Rogue will be beastly, but what's the use of having such a great GPU if you don't have anything of your phone/tablet to take full advantage of it?

Perhaps this means you should look towards the Note III to be the real beast of a phone for this year. I would imagine it would be that device that might showcase the Exynos Octa processor if this one doesn't.


Posts: 3; Member since: Feb 15, 2013

sigh... all of these fandroid comments and they still won't accept that the s4 will be using old tech that will guarantee to be beaten by the new iphone as it never uses old hardware. Just like the s3 that was all a9 cores and the gpu was the same old mali 400. LMAO again.

S3 is old phone now...and you don't need to remind us how fast PowerVR gpus are...Apple has always emphasized more on gpu power can't name a single apple soc that has more cpu power than same gen Exynos soc...for gpu...its been always other way around.

Now back to actual topic - Even if Samsung uses qualcomm soc in gs4...then how it is wrong? krait is more powerful than A9 and efficient than A15...Samsung had to compromise somewhere...and adreno 320 is powmerful enough to drive 1080p display...also sasung may push qualcomm to use ddr3-800mhz ram for better data bandwidth. Exynos5...undoubtly fast than any other also more power hungry and perhaps I won't mind samsung moving to qualcomm for smartphones and use Exynos only on high-end tablets!

ok see its people like you that basically allowed samsung to put the same a9 and mali in the s3 and also the crappy crapdragon dual core with adreno 225 in the US. so if you like specs like that than go on ahead an buy last years tech as their cheaper anyway. But were here talking about new and better things and unlike you we don't like moving backwards.

15. jove39

you think using krait cores with adreno320 and ddr3-800 ram is moving backwards?

17. okokpeople

Posts: 3; Member since: Feb 15, 2013

ram aside the adreno 320 was used in the optimus g debuted last year. Also the s4 pro was not really all that efficient in power. The s4 is supposed to be the greatest android phone aside from the note 3 that is coming out this year so yes using the adreno and the s4 soc is moving backwards. If I wanted that---sprint had a bogo not that long ago for the optimus.

Unfortunately for your lover Apple, it won't use a S4 pro cpu. It might use the Qualcomm 600 though, which will still be better than anything Apple comes out with.

None of last year phones have been able to use apq8064 upto potential due to thermal constraints...if you read anandtech...they did two test on with cooling it in freezer! my one x with msm8960 can easily score similar to nexus4 with alsmost double power

I have an Optimus G with the S4 Pro. And I owned the same One X that you have on AT&T right before I upgraded to this. The difference in performance is noticeable. The only time benchmark performance wanes through throttling is when I run multiple graphics benchmarks back to back. Antutu scores are constantly above 20K and reach 22.5K sometimes. And to tell you the truth; the One X gets warmer during everyday use and benchmarks than the Optimus G does.

Yes the four A9's and old mali gpu that allows it to still outperform the iphone 5 that was released months later. Also, that crapdragon is pretty much the same as what the A6 is, somewhere in between an A9 and an A15.

How does the Mali outperform the SGX543MP3? Please elaborate.

42. Taters

Posts: 6474; Member since: Jan 28, 2013

It is called a combination. You know. Simple math such as 4 highly clocked A9s + super overclocked mali + huge battery to power it all >>>>> 2 low clocked A9/A15 hybrids + severely under clocked power VR with two cores removed + puny battery that forces everything to thermal throttle really low. You know, simple math. Or simple English if you would actually read my posts before replying to realize that I wasn't talking strictly about the GPU but the overall performance. Of course, judging from your reaction you probably think that the power VR vs the Mali is the only thing that matters.
