Mystery Samsung phone with Snapdragon S4 pops up in benchmarks, may or may not be Verizon’s Galaxy S III

While pre-release benchmarks have a very hit or miss record for clues as to what future devices will bring, they almost always raise eyebrows. Nowhere is that more true than in a round of NenaMark2 testing uncovered this weekend: a previously unknown Samsung SCH-i535 for Verizon has tipped up sporting a 1.5GHz, dual-core Snapdragon S4 instead of one of Samsung’s own chips, like the Exynos 4 Quad. Given that the SCH-i515 is the model badge for Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus, it’s not a great leap in logic to speculate that this is a custom version of the Galaxy S III. It’s entirely possible that something else might fit the bill, but knowing that Samsung has used Snapdragons itself to include 4G before and that HTC just recently switched up the One X with an S4 to give it LTE on North American networks, we may be looking at the compromise Samsung needs to make to get its 4.8-inch gigantophone on Big Red.
