Supposed Galaxy S4 Spec List Suggests Eight-Core Processor

Someone who claims to be in possession of a Galaxy S IV prototype decided it would be fun to benchmark it, giving us a look at how the phone might possibly perform and what might be inside Samsung’s next Android flagship.

The Antutu benchmark test reports that the Galaxy S IV is powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 5410 chipset, with its eight cores running at 1.8GHz clock speed. It’s coupled with a PowerVR SGX 544 graphics processor, with 2GB of RAM onboard. The Galaxy S IV in this allegedly current state also features a 4.99-inch display running at 1920×1080 resolution, with Android 4.2 the phone’s launch operating system.

The tested machine featured GSM and LTE radio capability, meaning one version of the device ought to launch worldwide. And there's a 13-megapixel camera in it.

No holes can be picked in those specs. If, of course, these results are genuine -- so best keep a grain of salt to hand for now. We're expecting Samsung to give us all a good look at 2013's inevitably massively successful phone on March 14. [Sam Mobile]
