The web is filled with countless rumors of Samsung’s upcoming flagship handset, from how it’ll look like down to the processor that will be at its core. Today, a snapshot of GLBenchmark result gives us a glimpse of how the SGS4 fared against its predecessor and two other formidable handsets.
The handset at the top of the heap is supposedly the Korean version of Sammy’s next torch bearer which currently goes by the name of Samsung SHV-E300S. Surprisingly, the details of the S4 provided by GLBenchmark suggests that it features a more conservative configuration. At its beating heart is a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Krait MSM8960 with 2GB of RAM and Adreno 320 GPU.
Though it may not be the Exynos 5 Octa that the phone is rumoured to be equipped with, the MSM8960 is no push-over either as is evident on the results of the benchmark test. On off-screen test, the alleged SGS4 decimated its opponents (SGS3, GNex4 and HTC Butterfly) by reaching a staggering 41.3 frames-per-second. On the on screen, however, the Google Nexus 4 emerged victorious besting the rumoured handset by more than 4fps.
Nothing is certain up to this point, so we suggest do take this information lightly. Hopefully the upcoming tech convention in Barcelona will shed more light on the upcoming device.
