With less than ten days to go until the Samsung Unpacked event on the 14th of this month in New York, where the South Korean company is expected to unveil its Android flagship for this year, rumors and leaks are piling up, all trying to depict or predict one or more aspects of the Galaxy S4. We’ve seen some alleged renders of the phone as well as purported benchmark results aside from speculation regarding eye-controlled scrolling.
A recent AnTuTu benchmark results claims that the Galaxy S4 (or S IV) will pack an eight-core Exynos 5410 SoC running at 1.8GHz (aided by the PowerVR SGX 544MP GPU), and have 2GB of RAM. The “almost-five”/4.99-inch screen, as rumored and expected, appears to be listed as a Full HD display with 1080 x 1920 resolution and the camera should be one of 13-megapixels (paired with a 2.1-megapixel webcam). Android 4.2 will be the platform and version of choice with, of course, Samsung’s own TouchWiz UI on top of it.
All the above specs seem to be in-line with what we’ve heard previously — since CES, to be more specific — but it’s not all about horsepower anymore. There’s still more we want from the S4 in order to have the upper hand versus the HTC One.
