Samsung Galaxy S3 crops up on benchmark site, outperforms rivals

Confirmation of the processing brawn of Samsung’s Galaxy S3 may have been inadvertently leaked, after benchmarking tests were uncovered for a handset believed to the eagerly awaited kit.

Screenshots of GLBenchmark 2.1 tests performed on a phone known only as the Samsung GT-I9300 - widely believed to be the internal model name for the Galaxy S3 - were grabbed by Phone Arena, along with results for several other top-end smarties.

These reveal a noticeable superiority of the I9300’s quad-core Exynos 4412 processor, reportedly clocked at 1.4GHz, and its Mali 400 GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) at 400MHz, which outperformed Apple’s iPhone 4S and both HTC’s One X and One S smarties, which only landed in store shelves this month.

The Mali 400, which is somewhat disappointingly not the Mali T-604 that featured on Exynos 5 series tablets, as hardcore tech heads had expected, still delivered 50 per cent greater graphical performance than the best-selling Galaxy S2.

Earlier today, Samsung released a teaser video confirming its red-hot Unpacked event on May 3rd in London where it’s almost dead cert to officially announce the Galaxy S3.
