Snapdragon 800 Samsung Galaxy S4 benchmarked, scores inside

Tags: Samsung, Android

The Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A went official this morning in South Korea, promising double the download and upload speeds compared to the regular LTE edition. Moreover, the Galaxy S4 LTE-A with its Snapdragon 800 promises to be significantly quicker than the company's own eight-core Exynos 5 Octa chip. But how much faster exactly?

Thankfully, we've got the answer as the Snapdragon 800 in the Galaxy S4 LTE-A has just been put through two of the most famous benchmarks around: Quadrant and AnTuTu.


Higher is better

  • Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 (Octa)
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 (S600)

  • Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A

As you can clearly see, the Snapdragon 800 wipes the floor with both the Samsung Galaxy S4 Exynos 5 Octa and Galaxy S4 Snapdragon 600. In AnTuTu the difference between the scores is 3701 points, or just over 14% while in Quadrant it's more substantial at nearly 50%. Owners of the Octa and Snapdragon 600 versions of the phone might feel a bit off at this point.

Pricing and availability of the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A outside of South Korea are not known yet. The smartphone is expected to hit international markets, if some unconfirmed rumors are to be believed. Still, you can still enjoy the phone's unboxing and two new color options, alas just in photos.

Thanks for the tip, Vlad Andrici!
