Galaxy S4 benchmarks for Verizon
Samsung's Galaxy S4 benchmarks a Qualcomm processor. Here's what to expect
After kicking off the week with a slew of Samsung Galaxy S4 rumors, it only feels right to end it on a similar note. It may even be safe to say that this one is better than all the rest, as it at least provides us with some benchmark test results. The upcoming Galaxy S4 for Verizon was purportedly detailed in a device with the model number of SCH-i545. As BGR is quick to point out, this is a near-mirror image of the current Galaxy S3's model number of SCH-i535.
The results come from Nenamark, which claims that Samsung's Galaxy S4 will feature a 1920 x 1080 full HD display, 1.9GHz quad-core processor and will run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. (Those of you holding out for Key Lime Pie will have to wait until Google's annual I/O developer's conference, scheduled for May 15 in San Francisco.) The benchmarks also indicate that the upcoming S4 will include Adreno 320 graphics, which could very well mean a Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU. It's a particular point of interest, as rumors previously suggested that the handset would feature Samsung's Exynos 5 octa eight core processor.
Aside from the five-inch Galaxy S4, Samsung is also rumored to be working on a Galaxy S4 mini. If this ends up being the case, it's likely that the two handsets will launch together. There's also been quite a bit of buzz lately about a possible Galaxy Watch, but details on that remain nil. At this point we've heard so many mixed opinions on a possible launch date. First it was March, and most recently it was April -- so for now, we're just going to stick with a Galaxy S4 spring launch. Folks in the UK will probably end up with first dibs, while those of us in the states can more than likely count on a summer release date.
