Samsung Galaxy S4 With Snapdragon 800 Rumored for International Launch
New Galaxy S4
It looks like the international markets will be getting the super-powerful, Snapdragon 800 version of the Samsung S4.
Samsung is going wild with its Android casino flagship – Galaxy S4. There are, of course, the two versions containing two different chipsets: the Qualcomm and Samsung’s proprietary Exynos, and then there is a bunch of smaller brothers: active, mini, zoom. The home market of Korea, has recently got another addition: the Snapdragon 800 powered S4, and it looks like that device will be making it to the international arena as well.
This simple conclusion can be draw from the sheer number of rumor and speculations that fill various technophile and mobile casino gambling forums in the recent weeks. The latest rumor comes after some AnTuTu benchmark test screenshots were published.
The benchmark test results reveal the super powerful Adreno 330, which scored close to 9000+ points, way above the Adreno 320, and even slightly higher of the PowerVR SGX 544MP3 included in the Exynos version of the Galaxy S4. Just imagine what this new GPU unit will do to mobile casino games performance.
The published screenshots confirmed the I9506 model number previously suggested by a number of other sources. They also confirm that the new version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 mobile casino monster will be powered by a 2.3GHz Krait 400 CPU on top of the Adreno 330 GPU. This is the combination of the Snapdragon 800 chipset, which by the way has the very latest LTE-Advanced connectivity, meaning 150Mbps downlink speed support.
The tested device was running on the Android 4.2.2 just like the current version of the Galaxy S4, but the OS can very well be bumped up to 4.3 by the time the device hits the international market. Just as any other early rumor, this one doesn’t feature any indication of a planned announcement or release date, however, there’s an IFA event on the horizon, so keep your fingers crossed.
