Does this benchmark result reveal Samsung Galaxy S4’s 1.8GHz CPU?

It’s always difficult to take an entry in a benchmark database at face value, but when the potential subject is the Samsung Galaxy S4 it’s worth a second look. So goes the story with the latest AnTuTu benchmark result, er, results. Two devices have appeared with model numbers SHV-E300S and GT-I9500, but both appear to be linked to identical handsets.

If that GT-I9500 number sounds familiar, it’s because speculation has already tied it to the next iteration of Samsung’s Galaxy S flagship. If that is accurate and the benchmark results we see here hold true, the Galaxy S4 will feature a 18.GHz quad-core CPU — potentially Samsung’s Exynos 5 Octa.

Roll that in with previously rumored specs including a 4.99-inch Super AMOLED FHD display, 2GB RAM, and a 13MP camera and we’re looking at a device that will once again capture a wide swath of the market for Samsung. The specs would simply blow almost every other device out of the water.┬áBut, we haven’t even dipped our toes in, just yet. Samsung is expected to unveil the next Galaxy S later this spring.

      And you thought battery life sucked now…

      • http://twitter.com/fightcrazy Vinny

        Wrong, the new chips are also 60% better in managing battery life. That is called innovation, innovation yes innovation. That is why Android just keeps getting better, they innovate.

        • kascollet

          Well, it’s solely ARM innovation but yes, efficiency and power is great news.

        • Ian Woloschin

          I was commenting on the order of magnitude typo in the article…if you could even overclock an ARM chip to 18 GHz without it exploding, it would hardly be a power-sipping chip for a phone.

          Regarding the new chip designs, they say they’re 60% better, I say don’t hold your breath. I’m sure they’ll be better, but when marketing people start throwing out nice round numbers like that, my engineer-senses start tingling.

  • Jonbo298

    1.8ghz GS4. May as well go for a 2ghz Note 3. Marketing would have a field day.

    • http://twitter.com/PhaseBurn PhaseBurn

      1.8? The article clearly says 18 GHz, not 1.8. Get your facts straight, mang!

      • kascollet

        Just think for yourself for a minute dude…

      • Alex Alexander

        Me Gusta

      There is a crazy rumors, maybe not so crazy, than the Note 3 will come with a curved screen and bigger screen but the same dimensions of the Note 2.
      Also with the new big.Little processor at 2GHz.
      I switched from the S3 to the Note 2 mainly by the screen, but if Samsung can keep the size just like the Note 2… it will be welcome.

  • Jackson Veliz

    geez… the next big thing IS here! lol 18GHZ, enough for 4k and then some o_O

  • HotInEER

    I’m so hyped for this, I can’t wait. HTC M7 has me interested also, as well as the new Sony Xperia. One of these 3 will be my next phone. Might be which one comes out first and is on Sprint.

    • No_Nickname90

      I’m in your same boat. Although I’m gearing towards the Xperia Z in terms of design. And I like the water resistance.

      And Sprint too. The only reason it having to be on Sprint is because the discounts I’m wracking in being on this Family plan. LoL!!

  • earth

    Does the new CPU include LTE? If not, we might see this version in the US.

    • http://twitter.com/PhaseBurn PhaseBurn

      Yes, the Exynos 5 does support LTE.

  • kev2684

    18.ghz omfg wat

    • No_Nickname90

      I hope he leaves it lyk that. Surely this is one of the best typos I’ve seen evar.

  • John

    18GHz.

    DO WANT

  • No_Nickname90

    AT 18Ghz, you can only imagine the cost. But 2 year contract would be $200 and my contract expires this year. How lovely. =.D

  • John

    Kevin Krause will never typo processor speed again… lol

  • Ramses225

    1.8Ghz, probably a typo,

  • james ortiz

    what’s fhd display?

    • Simon Belmont

      FHD is Full HD. That would be 1920x1080p.

      Regular HD or just HD is 1280x720p. Hope this helps.

      • http://twitter.com/SooHonY Soo Hon Wye

        Or it could be just Fucking High Definition :p

  • nerijus ogilba

    on antutu u can find GT-I9500 with android 5.0 o.O

  • NIGHTSCOUT

    18GHz! WOW!

  • http://twitter.com/Jaymonz123Mug Mug

    Idiots. He got it wrong. It’s 1.8 Ghz, I read other articles on other websites. And the title says 1.8 Ghz, journalists make mistakes.

    Idiots.

    • master94

      We know, we are just having fun party spoiler

  • http://phandroid Steven

    Its out right obvious its a typo (18.GhZ) when the title clearly states 1.8GHZ. The title is what lead me to read the article. Duh ! Didn’t it do the same to you ?

    • master94

      We are all just having fun, join us

  • master94

    18Ghz! now my phone can truly cook an omelet.

  • jordan lopez

    Ppl read the title of the article 1.8… 18GHz was a typo. they happen. There’s no need for that much power. That’s too big of a jump
