Further proof that an international Snapdragon 800 Galaxy S4 is on the way
Earlier this week we reported on a benchmark sighting for the Samsung GT-I9506,
The new detailed system info comes to us from German-based site Android-Ice Cream-Sandwich, and as you’ll see in the screenshot below, it not only spells out specifically that the phone is running on a Qualcomm MSM 8974 CPU (aka Snapdragon 800), it also mentions the presence of the Adreno 330 GPU. The other listed specs fall in line with what we are expecting from this GS4 variant as well.
While this latest information doesn’t necessarily prove anything, it certainly seems to lend further credence to the idea that an international GS4 LTE-A is in fact on its way in the not-too-distant future.
According to PocketNow, the GT-I9506 is also being tested in France, Italy, Spain and the UK. No word on what other regions or countries the GT-I9506 will arrive in.
So when is it coming? While an IFA reveal makes sense, it could really come any time between now and then. Also keep in mind that the existence of the GT-I9506 still remains unconfirmed for the time being, so take all of this with a grain of salt.
Still, for those that are currently on the fence about buying a Samsung Galaxy S4, it probably wouldn’t hurt to wait off a little bit longer to see how all of this plays out.
