The rumor mill for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S IV is only beginning folks. Today’s update comes from the GLBenchmark database where a Korean variant (SHV-E300S) appeared. We find that a lot of devices show up in the GLBenchmark database, and although we aren’t able to get the full scoop, there is usually some relevant information available.
The first bit of information is about the processor. Most of us were hoping for the new Exynos 5 Octa that was introduced at CES. Unfortunately that won’t be the case, at least for this model. It appears to be a quad-core Qualcomm S4 Pro clocked at 1.9GHz (with an Adreno 320 GPU), which is very surprising. Let me reiterate that this is one variant and doesn’t necessarily mean that there won’t be other Galaxy S IV variants with the Exynos 5. On the flip side, it should also be noted that the phone appears to be one of the fastest with 41.3 fps in offscreen speed and 39.4 fps in onscreen speed.
The second bit of information is not surprising as it boasts a 1080p (1920 x 1080) display. The screen size is unknown, but I think all money is on 5-inches. The last bit of information is the version of Android, which is 4.2.1 and nothing unusual.
