Samsung Galaxy S4 possible benchmark tips monster speed
The cryptic results also point to Android 4.2, and a 1080p screen.
A mysterious benchmark for an unnamed Samsung phone has surfaced online, prompting speculation that we're looking at speed tests and hardware details regarding the much-anticipated.
As with all unconfirmed details, take this with a pinch or two of salt, but the device appeared on GLBenchmark under the moniker 'Samsung SHV-E300S', Techkiddy reports, along with performance results for the mystery mobile.
Those results are somewhat on the blinding side -- in the benchmark's 2.5 Egypt HD offscreen test, the phone suspected of being Samsung's next flagship chewed through 4,672 frames. The Nexus 4's results in the same test were 3,803 frames, suggesting Samsung's new toy is faster than the Google-brand heavyweight.
The System information for the phone shows that it's running Android 4.2.1 and has a 1,920x1,080 display, both of which are expected specifications for Samsung's next top-of-the-line mobile.
The processor looks like it could be a Qualcomm chip rather than a Samsung-built Exynos model however, which would be a departure for the South Korean tech giant, as the Galaxy S3.
There's no way yet to know if these benchmarks really describe the S4, but they certainly point to a highfalutin Samsung phone in the works. The S4 has been, so we may not have long to wait.
