Leak shows new variant of Samsung Galaxy S4 with Snapdragon 800 processor
| by Anujeet Majumdar |
Samsung’s flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S4, is currently available in two variants – one with a Snapdragon 600 processor and another with an Exynos 5 Octa processor, which is available internationally. A third variant was launched in South Korea recently with a Snapdragon 800 chipset as well as LTE-Advanced connectivity, according to GSMarena. The variant, however, is only available in that market.
A fresh leak, though, suggests that another version of the S4 with a Snapdragon 800 processor – called the Galaxy S4 LTE-A – may be seen in the International market, according to a Japanese website.
The leak, in the form of AnTuTu benchmark score, suggests that the LTE-A Galaxy S4 may be getting an international release with the model number I9506. The Galaxy S4, which comes with the Snapdragon 600 processor, is labelled I9505.

The benchmark score of the LTE-A Galaxy S4 actually seem to rate better than the version which is being sold in South Korea, despite having the same processor. Adding to that, the Adreno 330 GPU chipset easily outperforms the Adreno 320 GPU seen in the Snapdragon 600.
There has been no official statement or announcement from Samsung, though. Thus, it is still not certain if the smartphone will be available for all markets. Till the time the company decides to talk about this variant, Samsung enthusiasts are advised to wait and not get their hopes too high.
