The official Samsung Galaxy S4 specifications have been purportedly leaked through means of a benchmark tool, much like what happened with the S3 back in April last year. Well, someone in possession of the phone has put it through the rigorous tests of the AnTuTu Android application.
So apart from the Galaxy S4 specifications, we’ll now even have a vague idea on how the handset might perform. Let’s start from what we know based on previous rumors and compare it to the latest findings. The display was speculated to span 5 inches wide and the benchmark has revealed that it will measure a little lesser, a mere 0.1mm difference to be exact. The resolution will be 1080p in order to keep up with the latest trends and the panel is most likely to be of a Super AMOLED type.
Coming to the processor, the Exynos Octa 5410 SOC (quad core A7 + quad core A15) will take charge of carrying the load, while previous leaks mentioned the possibility of the 5450 version. The clock speed will also be slightly lower at 1.8GHz instead of 2GHz as previously suggested. A recent report denoted that the S4 will arrive in 2 variants, one bearing a Qualcomm 600 SOC and the other carrying a homebrewed chipset. However, it has now been disclosed that the Exynos module in question will house 4G LTE+, GSM and WCDMA connectivity. This suggests that there will only be a single version for global launch.
Unlike the Exynos 5 Dual that packs in an ARM Mali T604 GPU, the South Korean conglomerate will instead go for PowerVR SGX 544MP graphics. And to top it off, the device will come running on the Android 4.2 platform right out of the box. Other specs provided by the benchmark include 2GB of RAM, options of 16GB as well as 32GB of built-in storage, and a 13MP rear-facing camera. The guys over at SamMobile are reporting based on an article published on Androidiani, that the handset will carry various physical buttons like its predecessor. They include menu, back as well as home keys.
Invitations for the Samsung Galaxy S4 launch have already been handed out at the MWC expo and the device is scheduled to be unveiled on March 14 at the company’s mobile unpacked event.
UPDATE: Posted above is the first official teaser for the smartphone.
