Specifications for Samsung’s Next Big Thing have surfaced on AnTuTu, giving us a sneak peek of what to expect when it’s officially unpacked in two weeks’ time.
Information uncovered through the Android benchmarking tool confirms that contrary to recent reports that Samsung is planning a single global model of the Galaxy S4 featuring a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, it will in fact pack something much beefier.
According to the spec sheet, the Galaxy S4 – or at least the unit tested – is home to an Exynos Octa 5410 CPU clocked at 1.8GHz. For the uninitiated, this Samsung’s latest eight-core system-on-chip that was unveiled in January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
Interestingly, the handset features GSM, WCDMA and LTE connectivity, which suggests there might yet be a single international variant of the S4 offering 4G support out of the box.
This is teamed is with a PowerVR SGX 544MP GPU and 2GB of RAM, with benchmarks results placing the S4 far ahead of the most powerful smartphones currently on the market, including the LG Optimus G and the Google Nexus 4.
The specs also reveal that the Galaxy S4 is home to a 4.99-inch Full HD (1920×1080) display and a 13-megapixel Camera, as had been rumours for aeons.
Samsung is due to formally announce the Galaxy S4 on March 14th at an Unpacked press conference in New York. Stay tuned for our full coverage of developments in the weeks ahead.
