As we’re approaching 2013, we’re starting to see more and more rumors detailing next-gen high-end Android devices, with the upcoming Galaxy S4 being one of them. There are plenty of reports that speculate the handset could come either at CES or MWC next year, and then hit stores in the months following its announcement.
But obviously, nothing is clear yet, and Samsung is not going to confirm anything at this point in the game. Which brings us to today’s wild rumor: the Galaxy S4 has already been spotted in the Nenamark 2 benchmark database. Before you get too excited though, you should know the listing reveals some “crappy” specs, at least by this year’s standards for flagship handsets.
According to the screenshot above, the GT-I9400, which is most likely going to be the Galaxy S4’s model number, features a WVGA display (800 x 480 resolution) and sports a 1.2GHz CPU with an ARM Mali-400 MP acting as the GPU. That’s not what you’d expect from a flagship Galaxy handset, would you?
In fact, the previous rumors detail an entirely different list of specs and features for the device, including a 5-inch touchscreen display with Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080), Samsung Exynos 5450 processor, 2GB of RAM, Mali-T658 GPU and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean running the show.
Is the NenaMark2 listing fake, or is Samsung stirring the waters and generating some Galaxy S4 buzz already?
