Images taken with 2 different variants of the Galaxy S IV & one unannounced device has just stumbled across a few pictures which were allegedly taken from 2 different variants of the upcoming Galaxy S IV (Korean, AT&T & Sprint). By looking at the EXIF data of the images we can see that the images were captured by the AT&T Galaxy S IV (SGH-I337), Sprint Galaxy S IV (SPH-M840) and the Korean Galaxy S IV (SHV-E300S). The images were uploaded on Google+, Images taken with the Sprint Galaxy S IV (SPH-M840) and Korean Galaxy S IV (SHV-E300S) were uploaded yesterday and images taken from the AT&T Galaxy S IV (SGH-I337) were uploaded today. EXIF data also reveals that the images were not taken at the maximum resolution. In one of the images there is a Samsung calendar on the desk and in another image there is a keyboard with Korean characters, these images could be even from Samsung HQ. We would have to take this news with a pinch of salt as EXIF data can easily be manipulated.

The next Galaxy S is rumored to feature an Exynos 5 Octa (8-Core) CPU, Mali-T658 (8-Core) GPU, 4.99″ Super AMOLED Full HD Resolution Display, 2GB of RAM, 13 Megapixel Rear facing Camera capable of shooting 1080p Full HD Videos at 30FPS, 2 Megapixel front facing camera capable of shooting 720p HD Videos and running Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.

UPDATE: SPH-M840 is not a Galaxy S IV variant but is still an announced device for Sprint.

  5. awsome!!!!

  6. According to an article on Anandtech the new Exynos 5 Octa SoC will contain a PowerVR SGX 544MP3 GPU (a less powerful version of the PowerVR SGX 544MP4 powering the Apple A6X) and not the previously hoped for Mail T-604 or anywhere near the Mali T-658 GPU.

    Sucks but would not be surprising given how Samsung III was also not as powerful as initially predicted….

  7. @ Addled: It’s always a problem when you read half the story. 554MP4 will need a much larger die-size and power. Apple uses a separate dedicated 5th block for just GPU. Not very suitable for phones. Exynos Octa will use 544MP3 @ 533MHz. For comparison, iPhone is running 543MP3 @ 267Mhz. This will give roughly a performance comparable with iPad 4, and much better than iPhone 5. For a phone, this is good performance.

    Exynos Octa GPU will beat A6x in fillrate, triangle setup, and texture rate, A6X will have better ALU numbers. In all both A6X and exynos Octa should have very comparable numbers.

  8. @hot_spare: This is not the point that I was making.

    What I said was that all those who had dreams of seeing a Mali T-658 running in a S IV (like the author of this article) need to reappraise their hopes because for whatever reason Samsung has decided to eschew the Mali T-658 for the comparatively mild PowerVR unit.
    Truly is a problem when you only read half the story….

  10. Mali-T658 (8-Core) GPU. LOLZ?!?! ARM just announced this GPU architecture and it’s suppose to be in SoCs in late 2014. Samsung announced at CES 2013 that Exynos Octa runs on PowerVR SGX544MP3 (3-Core).

    For the n00bz outhere, Exynos Octa is a four core because that’s the maximum number of cores that can run at the same time. The other 4 cores are for low-activity and idle processes.
