Samsung Galaxy S III Shows up on Benchmarks
The Samsung Galaxy S III is making it’s mark once again, showing up on the AnTuTu benchmark earlier today – confirming some specs, confounding some others.
As you can see from the benchmarks below, which mind you could easily be faked, the device matches up pretty close to the previous “leaks”. It shows a device running Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), with a 4.7″ 720P display, 1GB of memory, a 12MP rear camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, and a Samsung Exynos 4212. This is the interesting part – the 4212 is a 32nm dual-core. The Galaxy S III has been rumored to have a quad-core Exynos – which is the 4412. The 4412 is part of the same family of processors by Samsung, so it is possible that the benchmark doesn’t see the other cores. This may also account for why the device tops the benchmark list – since there aren’t any devices listed with that processor, it may be assigning the best-know processor that conforms to that architecture… then again, that’s all just more speculation.
Either way – the benchmark does prove one thing.. we’re all pretty giddy over a phone. Let’s put this stuff to rest and wait until May 3rd.
