The Samsung Galaxy S4, which is likely going to officially launch later this month, has appeared in new possible benchmarks which show a device running a full HD 1080p display, a speedy processor, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, the latest piece of Android software from Google.
Over the past few months, the Samsung Galaxy S4 has emerged in more than a few rumors ahead of its official launch. The device has been rumored to feature a 4.99-inch to 5-inch full HD 1080p display, quad-core processor that may be a Qualcomm 600 for some variants and a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa processor for others, a 13MP camera, a design that mirrors the Galaxy S3 or the Galaxy Note 8.0, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
We’ve seen the device arrive in a number of possible benchmark scores which have pointed to several of those features and the device has shown up again in a possible benchmark for the China Telecom version of the Galaxy S4.
The benchmark shows a device called the SCH-I959. The Galaxy S3 launched on China Telecom with model number SCH-I939 so Blog of Mobile, who first discovered the benchmark, believes this new GT-I959 is its successor, the Galaxy S4.
While the destination is important, there are also some key specifications that have surfaced with this supposed benchmark. The device looks to be rocking an FHD display which means 1080p resolution, a processor clocked at 1.8GHz, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. While benchmarks can be faked, these have all been mentioned as features of the Galaxy S4 in the past.
We likely won’t know what the Galaxy S4 is for sure until Samsung debuts it on stage. That event is said to be taking place in March 14th in New York City at the Radio City Music Hall. The venue can hold over 6,000 people which means that this isn’t a small launch that Samsung has planned.
Instead, it will likely be the Galaxy S4, a device that will be replacing the Galaxy S3, a smartphone that has sold over 40 million units around the world.
