For the past few days, we have had a number of rumors on the specifications of the next flagship device from Samsung, Galaxy SIV. Looks like those rumors have been unofficially confirmed.
Someone with a Galaxy SIV device reportedly did a benchmark test on AnTuTu and now, we have all the specification of the device.
According to the benchmark, the device is running on Exynos Octa 5410 processor which is clocked at 1.8 GHz. The device will have a PowerVR SGX 544MP GPU with 2GB RAM. The display will be of 4.99 inch with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and quite obviously the device will run on Android Jellybean.
The rear camera will be of 13MP (with LED flash) while the front cam would be of 2MP. The device will support Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi and will be available in two storage options, 16GB and 32GB.
Also, it is worth noting that the device may come in one variant only. The benchmarks show that the Exynos processor supports LTE connectivity and hence Samsung may release only this version as opposed to two variants that the company used to release on earlier devices.
Finally, these features have been confirmed on the AnTuTu benchmark and we just have to wait for a few more days for Samsung to official announce the device. Seeing that the rumors have been true this far, let’s a look at the other rumors that have not yet been confirmed.
- SIV may ditch Amoled Screens for IPS SoLux display. The new IPS display will be power efficient and has a very high PPI(rumors say as high as 400 ppi)
- The device will probably feature the new version of the TouchWiz UI and may share some features of the Galaxy Note II.
- Galaxy SIV may finally support Wireless charging after this feature was left out of Galaxy SIII.
Well, Samsung has confirmed that SIV will be launched on March 14 and it is only a matter of a few days until we get the full specs. They have already released a teaser video of the device and in case you missed it, make sure that you have a look at it from our earlier posts.
