Now that Mobile World Congress has come to an end, all eyes have turned towards Samsung, which is expected to launch their next flagship model GT-I9500 (better known as the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4) on March 14.
While the verdict remains out on which CPU will find itself inside of Samsung’s Galaxy S4, a result posted to Browsermark’s database today directs us to believe that it’s going to become the market-leader – at least where raw CPU performance is concerned. The outcome shows a device by the name Samsung GT-I9500, which is most expected to be the Galaxy S4.
The phone scores an impressive 2710 which is the best rank till date. The test has been conducted using Google Chrome 25. By comparison, the iPhone 5 previously topped Browsermark’s list with a score of 2416 (using Safari). That puts its browser performance ahead of competitors like the LG Optimus G, HTC One, Sony Xperia Z and Google Nexus 4, and streets ahead of its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S3.
As we have described before, the Galaxy S4 will supposedly feature a 4.99-inch 1080p display, a Exynos 5 Octa processor or a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera and it will run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Samsung is scheduled to unveil the Galaxy S IV on March 14th at a press event in New York City. The event can be watched live on YouTube at 7pm US EDT (10am Friday March 15 AEDT). We will be covering the event live from the spot, so be sure to check in for the full scoop on the device.
