Suspected Samsung Galaxy S4 spotted in GLBenchmark
An unknown Samsung device suspected to be the Galaxy S4 has appeared inside GLBenchmarks
A device called the Samsung SHV-E300S, reportedly the Korean version of the Galaxy S4, has appeared in GLBenchmarks.
This isn’t the first time the Galaxy S4 has shown up inside benchmark tests, and with a launch date just around the corner we'd expect to be seeing lots more in the way of leaks as the big day approaches.
What’s interesting about these benchmarks in particular is that it shows how Samsung’s upcoming flagship stacks up against the competition - namely the HTC Butterfly and Google Nexus 4.
The SHV-E300S decimates the competition and last year's Galaxy S3 in both the offscreen and on-screen benchmarks, reports GSM Arena. The Nexus 4 nudges ahead in the on-screen tests but only because it has a 720p display compared to the 1080p display on the SHV-E300S.
Interestingly, the Galaxy S4 here uses Qualcomm’s S4 Pro chipset and not Samsung’s Exynos setup. Samsung did release an S4-powered version of its Galaxy S3 in Canada in order to take access the countries LTE spectrum. Perhaps this is the case here too?
Reports suggest Samsung will release the Samsung Galaxy S4 in April. There’s no word on pricing, availability, or spec just yet but we’re expecting very big things indeed - 1080p display, oodles of processing power, LTE, lots of storage, NFC, Android Jelly Bean. The works.
