The rumor mill for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 is on its last leg and yet speculations regarding the handset are still flying. The latest rumor indicates that a UK-bound Galaxy S4 has been spotted in a benchmark, revealing various specifications of the handset.
Omio reports that that benchmarking results for the Samsung Galaxy S4 confirm the model name, screen size, processor, RAM, memory and version of Android.
"We have obtained these images from a very trusted source, captured from the popular Android AnTuTu benchmarking app - running on a Samsung GT-I9505 Galaxy S4 handset. These results are from a UK model of the S4, which show that the device is running from a quad-core 1.8GHz Qualcomm ARMv7 processor," reports Omio.
The benchmark results from a UK model of the Galaxy S4 show the device running a quad-core 1.8GHz Qualcomm ARMv7 processor. This could be the expected Samsung Exynos Octa 5 processor. It may be that the AnTuTu software doesn't recognize the eight-core set up, as Samsung has stated the Exynos Octa 5 does contain four Cortex-A7 cores.
The benchmark also confirms the presence of full HD 1920 x 1080 display, believed to be 4.99 inches. The benchmark also reveals that the display has 480 dots per inch (dpi) compared to the 320 dpi of the Galaxy S3.
The graphics processor noted from the benchmark is the Adreno 320, which is also found in other smartphones like the Nexus 4 and the Sony Xperia Z. The device has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The smartphone is also equipped with a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera.
The specifications revealed by the benchmarks are very similar to the rumored specifications of the Galaxy S4. However, we do not know if the benchmarks are correct. We will have to wait until March 14, when Samsung officially confirms the details of the Galaxy S4.
