Today we’re looking at some reportedly leaked AnTuTu Benchmark screenshots that seem to confirm some important features for Samsung’s fourth-generation smartphone, the processor and out-of-the-box Android build.
According to these images, the Galaxy S4 – or model number GT-I9500 for international markets and model number SHV-E300S for South Korea – will pack Samsung’s newly announced eight-core processor, the Exynos 5 Octa, running at 1.8GHz. The same images reveal that the Galaxy S4 will run Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.
In case you didn’t know, the GT-I9500 has been almost confirmed to be the model number of the Galaxy S4, while the SHV-E300S product number is awfully close to the Galaxy S3′s model number for the same region (SHV-E300)
No matter how great it all sounds, we’ll remind you to take everything with a chunk of salt until we can get more details on the device. After all, some things can always be faked to generate buzz around a specific device.
That said, it would make plenty of sense to see the new Galaxy S model run Google’s latest version – at least assuming it hits stores before Google unveils Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie – but also Samsung’s latest processor.
On the other hand, we will remind you that we just heard a few days ago that a Samsung exec has apparently confirmed that the Exynos 5 Octa will be found on board of the Galaxy Note 3 later this year, but did not mention anything about the Galaxy S4.
