Samsung GT-I9300 Galaxy S III Benchmarks Emerge

By  |  4 Comments

Benchmarks for an unannounced Samsung smartphone appeared on GLBenchmark for a few minutes giving us a hint at the specs of what could be the Galaxy S III.

A PhoneArena tipster spotted the benchmarks, and they show a phone using an unannounced Exynos quad-core CPU. The quad-core CPU runs at 1.4GHz, with an ARM Mali-400 GPU running at 400MHz.

While the GPU is only clocked at 50 percent faster than the same GPU in the Galaxy S II, the prototype GT-I9300 has the fastest graphics of any Android phone available. The Galaxy S III will have faster graphics than the Tegra 3 HTC One X, and the Snapdragon S4-based HTC One S. The benchmarks even show the GT-I9300 edging out the iPhone 4S, but it’s a close competition.

The prototype phone used for the benchmarks still can’t compete with tablets like the iPad, however. There is still a gap between the graphics speed offered by a phone and a tablet.

There aren’t any tests for the CPU on the Galaxy S III yet, but we’ve heard the phone has “superlative” specs, which hints at a powerful CPU. If the CPU performs as well as the GPU, the Next Galaxy could be the fastest phone on the market when it launches.

That might be bad news for HTC, as its One X will go on sale on AT&T just days after Samsung’s May 3 announcement. Although, as of right now, it’s unclear whether American carriers will get the Galaxy S III at launch or consumers will have to wait like they did with the Galaxy S II.
