It looks like it’s going to continue to be the year of the (snap)dragon, folks. We always expected the Samsung Galaxy S III variants for the different carriers to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4, with it’s onboard LTE capabilities trumping the quad core Exynos that’s packed in the international version. And it looks like we have proof regarding the Verizon version, at least.
The following Nenamark benchmark was found last night, quite clearly stating the carrier (Verizon) and the GPU (Adreno 225) for a device named SCH-I535. Additionally, the 1.5 GHz CPU info helps point towards the S4.
If I were you, I’d invest in a few Qualcomm shares right now. It looks like they’d be making quite some money until the other chipmakers finally get into the LTE game (which might only be towards the end of the year).
