Rumour: UK Samsung Galaxy S IV Benchmarked

By Gary Cutlack on at

New benchmarks supposedly taken with a UK-spec Samsung Galaxy S IV referred to as the GT-I9505 variant show a slightly different set of internal organs, perhaps confirming rumours that Samsung's planning different versions of the phone for different regions.

The latest benchmarks, sent to mobile site Omio, show a Galaxy S IV powered by a quad-core 1.8GHz processor, presumably Samsung's own model, with graphics power provided by a Qualcomm Adreno 320 GPU rather than the PowerVR unit we've seen appear in previous tests.

Elsewhere, the Antutu results show what we've seen many times before, with the phone said to come with a 1080p resolution display, 2GB of RAM, 13-Megapixel camera and an impressive screen density of around 480ppi.

Take these benchmarks with some salt atop, though. The Antutu benchmarking tool seems to have issues correctly interpreting Samsung's supposedly eight-core chipset, so things might not be particularly as they seem. And there's only a day and a half to wait until a Samsung press release ought to sort it all out for good.
