Galaxy S IV benchmark results leaked, Galaxy S IV Mini and Watch in works
Galaxy S IV rumors are gaining more momentum as the release date nears. Benchmark results of what is alleged to be the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S IV have appeared online. The results have been uploaded on popular benchmarking tool GLBenchmark’s website, which also lets us compare it with some of the other devices around.
The phone in question has a model number SHV-E300S, which indicates it could be the South Korean variant of the device. It’s also running on Qualcomm’s MSM8960 chipset, instead of the Exynos processor Samsung usually uses in its phones.
As you can see from the graph above, the SHV-E300S decimates the competition and last year’s Galaxy S III in both the offscreen and onscreen benchmarks. The Nexus 4 nudges ahead in the onscreen tests but only because it has a 720p display compared to the 1080p display on the SHV-E300S.
Galaxy S IV Mini, Galaxy Watch may also be in works
As the South Korean company is preparing to launch its next flagship device the Samsung Galaxy S IV in the coming months at a special event. But the folks at SamMobile now claim that according to some unnamed sources, Samsung is also preparing to launch two other devices at the event alongside the S IV, namely the Galaxy S IV Mini and the Galaxy Watch.
Galaxy S IV Mini, just like the previously launched Galaxy S III Mini, will most probably be a scaled-down version of the Galaxy S IV. The S IV Mini codenamed Serrano, will use most of the accessories present on the big brother, but will miss out on a couple of features say like wireless charging, which will help keep the price down.
The Galaxy Watch codenamed the Fortius, on the other hand will most likely be competing with the rumored Apple smartwatch we reported about recently. Though there is no other information available on this smartwatch, it is said to be compatible with an arm-band, bike mount, and pouch and we can expect it to run on the Android platform.
