Both the Korean variant (SHV-E300s) and international variant (GT-I9500) of the Samsung Galaxy S IV have made an appearance in Antutu Benchmarks. Both benchmarks confirm that the Samsung Galaxy S IV will carry an Exynos 5 Octa processor clocked at 1.8GHz.
The Samsung Galaxy S IV is also confirmed to be running Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean.
For those of you who are late to the game, here are the rumored specs the Samsung Galaxy S IV will supposedly have:
- 4.99-inch Super AMOLED FULL HD Display
- 1.8GHz Exynos 5 Octa processor
- 2GB RAM
- 13MP rear-facing camera
- 2MP front-facing camera
- Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean
The Exynos 5 Octa processor is a next-gen processor that will feature 8 cores. There will be 4 A15 cores running at 1.8GHz and 4 A7 cores running at 1.2GHz.
This will allow your smartphone to handle high-demanding apps and services while still being very conservative with battery life.
The big.LITTLE technology featured on the Exynos 5 Octa will use the A15 cores to handle all of the heavy lifting while the A7 cores handle all of the basic tasks. Samsung believes that the Exynos 5 Octa will offer up to 70% battery savings compared to its competitors.
Samsung says that the Exynos 5 Octa will be a multi-tasking beast. It should load web pages near-instantly, have stutterless HD playback, and be able to run many apps simultaneously and with ease. It’s an innovative processor and it makes sense that Samsung’s next flagship smartphone will feature it.
We’re one month away from MWC where the full details of this device will surely be announced. I’m sure that this device will be hugely successful, with both its high-end specs as well as the successful road the Samsung Galaxy S series has paved for it.
