Galaxy S4 Benchmarks Appear with 1.8 GHz (!) Exynos 5 Octa Processor

Steven Blum

Screenshots of benchmarks have just emerged of what appears to be the Galaxy S4's Exynos 5 Octa processor clocking in at a staggering 1.8GHz.

The benchmarks were recorded by Antutu, a popular website for performing speed tests. This particular "leak" could have been faked, but it does seem to follow a similar leak pattern. Both the Galaxy Nexus and the Galaxy S3's processors appeared on the site before the devices were released. While we don't know who uploaded the scores, we've got a hunch it was someone at Samsung.

Two variants of this device have appeared, one being under the code name GT-195000, the other a Korean edition with the code SHV-E3000S. At the moment, the GT is beating the Korean variant by a few thousand benchpoints, but that could be due to any number of factors – including different firmware.

The Galaxy S4 is rumored to have a 4.99-inch Super AMOLED full HD display, 13MP camera, the ability to shoot 1080p video and will likely run a heavily-skinned version of Android 4.2.1 out-of-the-box. We had earlier speculated that the device would run the Exynos 5 processor and now it would APPEAR that our hunch was right.

However, we really don't know right now! So don't get too excited QUITE yet. We will know a whole lot more next month, when Samsung is expected to reveal this hotly-anticipated addition to the Galaxy S family.

    Having it clocked at those speeds doesn't necessarily mean it will be released with those specifications, of course.
    I'm running my Note at 1.93GHz right now, but will throttle it down as my battery drains.
    Samsung is likely looking for benchmarks at different settings so they can find a compromise between battery life and performance.
