We all know it’s coming, Samsung is going to release it’s Galaxy S4 smartphone at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. The rumors have been running wild but it seems that some benchmarks have emerged that confirm that the handset will have 8 cores.
Antutu Benchmarks out a Korean variant (SHV-E300S) and an international variant (GT-I9500) which should be the Galaxy S4. The devices boast Samsung’s Exynos 5 Octa processor, which will be the first 8 core mobile processor. It’s clocked at 1.8GHz and the devices will be running Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean.
The other rumors that are making the rounds are that it will have an eight-core Mali-T658 GPU along side a 4.99-inch SuperAMOLED full HD display, with at least 2 GB of RAM, a rear 13-megapixel camera and a front-facing 2-megapixel front facing snapper. There is talk that it’s going to be sporting a flexible display, but since they just invested into their flexible display fab a few months ago for volumes expected in 2014/2015 this is likely not true.
We won’t be seeing this device hit the street until May, this little fact was released by Samsung, probably to check some of the rumors and manage everyone’s expectations.
