AnTuTu Confirms The Samsung Galaxy S3 Benchmarks

Last week, the popular benchmarking application for Android, AnTuTu, contained some interesting data about an unreleased phone: the Galaxy S3. Now, it seems that app creators have confirmed the validity of the data, while claiming to hold further details of the device.

As mentioned to a TechRadar member, AnTuTu has stated: "What we got is not only scores, but information on smartphones, so we can surely say it is Samsung I9300."

The application captured some interesting data, where the Samsung i9300, a model rumoured to be the next Galaxy phone, came packed with an Exynos 4212 chip clocked at 1.4GHz, 1GB of RAM, a 4.7in wide display that renders content at a 1,280 by 720 (HD) resolution and of course, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The phone also contained other basic details, such as GPS and A-GPS support, as well as two huge cameras - 200-megapixels for the front and 1200-megapixel for the back (certainly an error).

The mobile was compared, head to head, with some existing devices, and it managed to top even the Asus Transformer Prime tablet, as well as the Galaxy Note, Nexus, S2 and others.

Due to the fact that AnTuTu captured a 4212 Exynos chip, this makes some believe that this is the US variant of the Galaxy S3. The latest rumours show that US may receive a dual-core processor, instead of the already confirmed quad-core model, announced by Samsung itself.

The phone will be launched this coming Thursday at an invite-only event in London where will be reporting via Rob Kerr, our mobile editor.
