Samsung's Galaxy S4 flagship has shown up in benchmark stats with a 1.8GHz processor

What is believed to be the Samsung Galaxy S4 has been spotted on AnTuTu benchmarking results.

Two tested phones have been seen with different ID numbers, GT-I9500 for the UK and SHV-E300S for Korea, but in both cases these are numbers previously associated with Galaxy S4 rumours.

Furthermore, both show the same 1.8GHz clock speed and Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean.

That clock speed has previously been associated with Samsung's new Exynos 5 Octa eight-core processor, suggesting previous rumours the Galaxy S4 would be fitted with one are indeed correct.

The information comes from Japanese tech site Rbmen. While it's possible it's a hoax everything is falling into place fairly neatly and it makes sense for Samsung to load its next flagship with its top-of-the-line processor.

No other details have emerged from the benchmark stats, but rumours indicate the Galaxy S4 will feature a 5-inch 440ppi display and a 13-megapixel camera. It also may include an S-Pen stylus.
