Galaxy S3 Verizon featured in benchmark test, Snapdragon S4 Confirmed?!
The Galaxy S3 will be launched at the end of this month while the other versions, like Verizon or AT&T’s ones weren’t confirmed until now, but, there is an image showing a benchmark test result for an SCH-I535 model number of the future Verizon SGS3 phone.
As you know the USA based LTE radio chips aren’t supported by the quad-core CPU’s like Tegra 3 and numerous north american users of Android hoped that the upcoming Galaxy S3 models will be made by another manufacturer which will then make it compatible with LTE technology. However, their hopes have been crushed as an image showing a Nenamark 2 benchmark rating appeared which shows a SCH-I535 smartphone, which we’re thinking to be the upcoming Verizon edition of the Galaxy S3.
If the image is to be trusted then the CPU that will come with the SGS3 will be a dual-core Snapdragon S4 edition that will be powered like all the other phones running that CPU. Also, it should come with a 1280X720 resolution screen and the Android 4.0.4 ICS with Qualcomm Adreno 225 GPU.
There aren’t any further details about the US version of Galaxy S3 only this SCH-I535 version that should be launched by Verizon. However, Europe and other markets should get the device in late May, while the US will get the new Galaxy S series device starting with June 2012. Numerous north american users hoped that they would get a quad-core device to be used on LTE carrier networks but if we were to believe that the new rumors then it would be better not to get your hopes high as an quad-core Galaxy S3 version for Verizon might not be launched this year.
