The Samsung Galaxy phones are the only smart phones able to beat themselves in benchmarks. Both the Galaxy SIII and the Galaxy S4 came in two (or more) separate versions with different processors, it creates a rare occurrence when you can see a product compete with itself in benchmarks.
Samsung has given a performance boost to the Korean variant of the Galaxy S4 (SHV-E300S ) by increasing the Exynos 5 Octa’s clock speed to 1.8GHz.
There are, currently, 3 variants of the Samsung Galaxy S4:
- GT-I9500 – Exynos 5 Octa 1.6 GHz without LTE
- GT-I9505 – Snapdragon 600 1.9 GHz with LTE
- SHV-E300S – Exynos 5 Octa 1.8 GHz with LTE
SamMobile’s insiders recently performed an Antutu benchmark for a GT-I9500 Galaxy S4 handset, which is equipped with the Exynos 5 Octa, but no LTE capability. The device scored 28,018 points surpassing the GT-i9505, the Qualcomm variant, which scored 23,607. SamMobile expects that the Korean version of the Galaxy S4, the SHV-E300S to score even higher, possibly over 30,000 points, and will be the fastest phone on the planet, but we guess we will have to wait and see if those benchmarks indeed prove that.
