Amid various rumors doing the rounds on the release date of Samsung Galaxy S4, the smartphone has made an appearance in the GLBenchmark.

The device in question was the Korean variant (SHv-E300S). While the device featured a Full HD (1920×1080) display with no on-screen navigation bar, the surprising element in the benchmark was the Qualcomm CPU and GPU.

According to the benchmark, Samsung Galaxy S4 comes with a Qualcomm MSM8960 CPU clocked at 1,9GHz (384 - 1890MHz) and an Adreno 320 GPU, Sam Mobile reported. The smartphone runs on Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean (JOP40D), firmware E300SKSUFMB2.

Given the fact that the device is seen featuring a Qualcomm CPU, this benchmark is believed to be a hoax, as Samsung would never use a Qualcomm SoC in its high-end devices. However, the authenticity of the benchmark is unconfirmed at this point in time.

Meanwhile, the rumor mill about the possible release date keeps on rolling and the recent speculation is that the device will launch March 15 in Moscow during the planned Samsung Unpacked event.

In yet another report suggesting the device is ready to be launched, a couple of images have surfaced online recently, allegedly taken from two different variants of the upcoming Galaxy S4 (Korean and AT&T). The report suggested that the images were clicked by the AT&T Galaxy S4 (SGH-I337) and the Korean Galaxy S4 (SHV-E300S). Taking a close look at the EXIF data, one can see a Korean calendar on the desk and another image shows a keyboard with Korean characters, indicating that the photographs may possibly be taken from the Samsung headquarters.

According to various other rumors, Samsung Galaxy S4 will come with an Exynos 5 Octa (8-Core) CPU while a few other reports indicated the device may possibly come with an Exynos 5450 quad-core processor.  Other speculations include a Super AMOLED Full HD resolution display, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear-facing and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. The smartphone will run on Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.
