Exynos 5 Octa Processor Confirmed for Samsung Galaxy SIV

What is believed to be the Samsung Galaxy S IV has been spotted in a couple of AnTuTu benchmark tests. New benchmark results for a pair of Samsung devices have appeared in AnTuTu‘s database, and quite a few folks are thinking that both are variants of the highly-anticipated Galaxy SIV. After the success of the Galaxy SIII, it isn't exactly a secret that Samsung is plotting another flagship release this year, but so far, we haven’t heard anything official from the company.

In any case, back to the AnTuTu benchmark listings – the model numbers associated with these two results are SHV-E300S and GT-I9500, which are apparently the Korean and International [ British ] variants, respectively. The listings don’t tell us much, but they do show that the processor is clocked at 1.8GHz & the new handset will come will Android 4.2.1 (Jelly Bean) out of the box. That clock speed suggests an Exynos 5 Octa Processor for the Galaxy SIV, which probably won’t come as much of shock to most folks. Also suggest that the phone will come with a 4.99-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) screen.

After all, if there’s one phone Samsung is going to use its new Exynos 5 Octa Processor in, it’s the Galaxy SIV. The Galaxy SIII sold tens of millions of units, so you can bet that Samsung will want to pack the Galaxy SIV with the best equipment to get its fans fired up. We've been hearing similar rumors about the Galaxy Note III, so if these two devices are announced this year, it seems safe to assume that they’ll both come packing Exynos 5 Octa Processor's.
As for when Samsung will announce the Galaxy S IV, that’s currently up in the air. There’s a chance Samsung will announce the new device at MWC 2013 next month, as it did just that with the Galaxy SII. It seems far more likely, however, that Samsung will hold a special event of its own to announce the Galaxy SIV, which is something it did for the Samsung Galaxy SIII. Whenever Samsung chooses to announce the Galaxy S IV, we should have an announcement coming up in the next few months, so stay tuned!
