Samsung Galaxy S4 Benchmark Confirms Eight Cores

Samsung's unannounced Galaxy S4 smartphone has made its first appearance in a benchmark listing, which seemingly confirms the device being powered by eight cores.

Outed by Antutu Benchmarks, a Korean variant (SHV-E300S) and an international variant (GT-I9500) are listed. According to the benchmark, the Galaxy S4 boasts Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa processor -- the world's first eight-core mobile processor -- clocked at 1.8GHz. It'll apparently launch with Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean.

Other rumored features of the Galaxy S4 include an eight-core Mali-T658 GPU, 4.99-inch SuperAMOLED full HD display, at least 2 GB of RAM, a rear 13-megapixel camera and a front-facing 2-megapixel front facing snapper.

Although it failed to make an appearance at CES 2013, Samsung has confirmed the existence of the Galaxy S4 and said it won't launch until May at the earliest.

The device has previously been rumored to feature Samsung's eight-core processor, as well as sporting its flexible OLED display. As for the screen itself, if a Samsung CES 2013 roadmap is anything to go by, it's seemingly 4.99-inches and offers a full HD 1080p resolution.

    ....and has an amazing 23 minutes of battery time. Seriously, do consumers really need that many cores?

    Anyone else think it looks like a cross between the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini?

    Not only that, but does anything actually use them? Outside of a few select markets in Pc software I don't think anything else uses 8 cores, and you won't be running that software on your android phone.

    So what is the point? I can understand technology needs to advance, but how about we get our batteries advanced before the CPU (Which already had as many cores) Or maybe lower power higher performance CPU/GPUs and ram? And lower power hungry screens too, those AMOLED I'm sure are not very power efficient.

    I like my phone to be capable don't get me wrong, but it seems to me instead of stuffing in more cores at the same speed but greater power needs, we need to first make a battery to power them for longer then 8 hours at full use. (Or less)

    My SII suits me fine right now, but when it dies, or I need a new one, I'd like to get one that will have power to make it through the workday, preferably a lot longer then that. Maybe they let you toggle off cores or something I don't know.

    The developer of Ubuntu is going to have a long uphill battle against Google... Even Microsoft is performing somewhat poorly against Apple and Google despite devoting its full attention.
