If the rumours haven’t whet your appetite already, two freshly uncovered benchmark tests for what could be the fourth flagship Galaxy S smartphone from Samsung just might.
SHV-E300S and GT-I9500 – which appear to be domestic and international variants respectively of the hotly anticipated Galaxy S4 – have cropped on Android benchmark site AnTuTu, both rocking a 1.8GHz processor.
Although the core count is unspecified, the clockspeed is consistent with that of the Exynos Octa processor, a new eight-core chipset that Samsung unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas earlier this month.
Alas, the only other snippet of gen revealed is that they both run Android 4.2.1 – aka Jelly Bean. Though it might also be of interest to some that the international model, i.e. GT-19500, was benchmarked right here in Blighty.
While it is possible to fake these tests, given how little they actually reveal suggests to us they might well be the real deal.
Aside from a cutting-edge processor, Galaxy S4 is also mooted to feature a 4.99-inch Super AMOLED display with a full HD resolution, a 13-megapixel camera, S-Pen stylus support a la Galaxy Note and wireless charging capabilities.
Samsung is hotly expected to announced the S4 in April at one its of Unpacked events, followed by a global launch in early May.
