Galaxy S4 Shows Up in Benchmarks With Octa-Core Processor

The Samsung Galaxy S4 recently showed up in benchmarks running an Exynos Octa CPU and a 544MP PowerVR SGX GPU.

The benchmark was performed through Antutu and revealed these specifications that contradict some of the recent rumors, which state that the Galaxy S4 will use the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chip.

Other specs revealed in the benchmark include 2GB RAM, a close to 5-inch Full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080, and Android 4.2, JellyBean.

The device spotted also supports all kinds of LTE networks which could mean that Samsung will only release one variant of the Galaxy S4.

Some of the recent rumors have shot down the possibility of Samsung using the Exynos Octa-Core chip for its next generation flagship smartphone, which makes this benchmark spotting a bit surprising. However, those rumors could have been incorrect, as earlier ones stated that Samsung would use its new Exynos 5 processor to power the device.

Samsung confirmed that the Galaxy S4 will be unveiled on March 14 last week, and will live stream the event.

The company will unveil the new smartphone in New York City and will broadcast it live from Samsung's YouTube page.

The company sent out invitations to the unveiling last month. The invite reads "come and meet the next Galaxy," and also uses a numerical "4" in place of the word "four" where it says "ready 4 the show," further hinting at a Galaxy S4 unveiling for this date.

Samsung's mid-March announcement for the handset was revealed in previous rumors and the company is expected to begin shipping the device sometime in April. This event will take place in Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
