Alleged Galaxy S IV Samples And AnTuTu Scores Show Up

By 09:59 Thu, 15 Jul 2021 Comments

The Samsung Galaxy S III has been enjoying itself as top-selling Android flagship for a while now. At the same time rumors are steadily building up around its successor - the Galaxy S IV. If the rumor mill would have it its way, the SGS IV will be launched on March 15, it will sport a 5" 1080p Super AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) screen, a 13 MegaPixel (MP) camera, run on Samsung's quad-core Cortex-A15 Central Processing Units (CPU) with four auxiliary Cortex-A7 cores, haged its physical home button design, and perhaps even have an S Pen on board.

Today we're getting another confirmation of the capturing camera megapixels. Two samples have leaked on Google+ that have the model name GT-I9500 in their EXIF tags and people are happily concluding their source is indeed the Galaxy S IV.

Both samples are in 16:9 aspect ratio with a resolution of 4128 x 2322 (around 9.6 MP) meaning that in 4:3 aspect the sensor will most likely produce 13 MegaPixel (MP) stills.

The capturing camera samples themselves aren't that fine but we can probably attribute this to the less than ideal indoor lighting conditions and the pre-release capturing camera software.

The aperture is f/2.2 as opposed to f/2.6 on the S III. The guys over at have figured out that as these leaked Galaxy SIV samples report a 4mm focal length, if we assume it has a resulting 35mm equivalent focal length of 28mm, then the capturing camera sensor has a crop factor of 7x. This crop factor easily translates into a sensor size of 1/3" - the same size as used on the Xperia Z, which uses a 13MP Sony BSI sensor..

We urge you to haged an open mind as this could very well turn out nothing more than pre-production hardware that has nothing to do with the Galaxy S IV.

EXIF information from samples

The final news of the day is an AnTuTu scores list, which shows the product name I9505 along with brief Central Processing Units (CPU) and classy screen specs. While we've already seen GLBenchimprint scores from a GPU on a yet unannounced Samsung SHV-E300S, this might be a different device altogether. While the score didn't top the performance list, it reveals a Central Processing Units (CPU) core clock of 1890 Mega Hertz (MHz) and a classy screen resolution of 1080x1920px.
