Samsung launched the original flagship Galaxy S4 in two variants, one running on Samsung's own Exynos 5 Octa Core Processor, whereas the other running on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 600 Processor. During that time, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 So-C was going to go in mass production, and due to that it wasn't possible for Samsung to insert the SD800 chip inside the Galaxy S4. But, last month Samsung announced the new version of Galaxy S4 with LTE-A support and Snapdragon 800 CPU. Unfortunately the smartphone was exclusively made for Korean markets. But, wohoo, a new variant of Galaxy S4 with GT-I9506 as its model number has been spotted in Samsung UAProf Listing and in AnTuTu Benchmark, giving some confirmation of new International Galaxy S4 with SD800 pocessor and LTE-A connectivity.

Currently Snapdragon 800 chipset is considered as the best processor in market and every H2 flagship devices of 2013 will be running on SD800 CPU, but what about the H1 flagship devices which are still running on SD600 Processor. Samsung took some time on this topic, and are ready to launch the all new Galaxy S4 with Snapdragon 800 processor and LTE-A connectivity in International Market.

The model GT-I9506 was recently spotted in Samsung's Official UAProf Listing, which confirms the device to sport Full HD 1920x1080p resolution display and ARM11 CPU. The device is also confirmed to run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

For your understanding, User Agent Profile (UAProf) files are specification files that often describe the model, screen size and other features of the device before it goes official. Making such a file is not required, but gives a near-official confirmation of a device.

The GT-I9506 model was also spotted in AnTuTu Benchmark. The benchmark revealed the device running on Quad-Core Snapdragon 800 Processor clocked at 2.3GHz with Adreno 330 GPU clocked at 440MHz and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
