The smartphone also packs a PowerVR SGX 544MP graphics processing unit
With less than two weeks left until Samsung's official announcement, more and more details on the upcoming Galaxy S IV's specs sheet continue to surface online.Samsung Galaxy S IV has been surrounded by controversial rumors that have yet to be confirmed by the South Korean company.
For example, a few weeks ago a new rumor that the Galaxy S IV would be equipped with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 600 processor emerged, though no proof was provided at that time.
Well, it appears that the rumor was inaccurate as the folks at Androidiani have just got their hands on a set of screenshots taken from Samsung Galaxy S IV's AnTuTu benchmark results.
Presuming these are legit, the Galaxy S IV will be equipped with Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa chipset that packs 4 + 4 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz and a PowerVR SGX 544MP graphics processing unit.
However, it's not unusual for a handset maker to launch two different versions of a smartphone, so Samsung might launch a Galaxy S IV equipped with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 600 chipset and another model with its own Exynos 5 Octa solution.
The benchmark also confirmed Samsung Galaxy S IV would ship with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system out of the box.
Other highlights of the phone include: 13-megapixel rear photo snapper, 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls, 2GB of RAM and 16/32GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded up to 64GB via microSD memory card.
Word is that the Galaxy S IV is a “world phone” so Samsung fans should expect the smartphone to come with support for GSM, WCDMA and LTE.
Last but not least, rumor has it Samsung's next Android flagship smartphone will boast a 4.99-inch capacitive touchscreen display that supports full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution.
Samsung Galaxy S IV has been confirmed for unveiling on March 14, so stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
