Possible Verizon Galaxy S IV benchmark surfaces, shows 1.9GHz processor

Over on the Japanese blog RBMen, a benchmark has surfaced that may be the Verizon Galaxy S IV smartphone from Samsung. In the benchmark, we see a handful of specs, including a 1.9GHz processor and the brand “Samsung.” Although not official, all the signs point at it being the next handset is the Korean company’s wildly popular line of smartphones, following on the heels of the mega-selling Galaxy S III.

The benchmark isn’t much to look at, but the specs are interesting nonetheless. The handset displayed is the Samsung SCH-I545, which features a 1.9GHz processor (possibly a quad-core Snapdragon) and Qualcomm Adreno 320 graphics. The display is listed as a full HD 1920 x 1080 panel, and the handset runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

While rumor originally had it that Samsung’s soon-to-be-launched flagship would be announced this month, new rumors surfaced in January tipping the device unveiling for March 22, with the launch following shortly after in April. If the rumor is to be believed, Samsung will unveil the device at a press event in the US.

The specs in the benchmark match the specs we’ve seen in various rumors that have been circulating since late last year. Early last month, a render of what is said to be the Galaxy S IV surfaced showing a lack of on-screen buttons. You can check out more information on the Galaxy S IV in the timeline below, and stay tuned as we find out more information on the handset leading up to its unveiling later this year.
