Samsung Galaxy S IV 580x431 Rumor: Samsung Galaxy S IV Benchmarks surface

Just like the Galaxy S III before it, rumors of a Galaxy S IV benchmark test have surfaced online. Before we get into the gritty details, just know that these tests can be easily faked, so don’t shoot the messenger if these are incorrect. That being said, the device in question has a model number of SCH-i545, which is how Verizon’s previous Galaxy devices have been named, with the Galaxy S III being SCH-i535, the “45″ increase leads us to believe that this device is in fact the Galaxy S IV.

When it comes to specs, we’ve previous heard rumors that Samsung was planning to use their new eight core Exynos 5 Octo processor, but from this Nenamark test, we see that the S IV is using a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor clocked at a blistering 1.9GHz, as well as featuring an Andreno 320GPU. This new may be somewhat upsetting to some hardcore fans who have been foaming at the mouth at the idea of an Octo-core processor from Sammy. Samsung may still use their Exynos 5 in the S IV, just not in the US however. It wouldn’t be the first time Samsung has swapped processors on a Galaxy S device when it arrives in the States.

The test also shows the Galaxy S IV’s use of a full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080, which has been rumored for a while now, it will also be running Android 4.2 and since it’s on Verizon, there will definitely be LTE. Sadly, that’s all the details we have on this beast, hopefully the leaks will continue to pour out before the Galaxy S IV’s rumored March 15 reveal.
