s4-browser-test.pngNew mobile browser benchmarking scores, reportedly from the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 handset, suggest that Samsung’s new flagship Android handset will tear through web page load times at speeds that’d make Usain Bolt quake.

The results, spotted by GSM Arena, are for a handset codenamed the Samsung GT-I9500, widely expected to be the Samsung Galaxy S4. Testing the handset’s browser with the Browsermark 2.0 benchmarking tool, the alleged S4 managed a score of 2710, with Chrome 25 as the browser.

Lined up against competition from the LG Optimus G, HTC One, Sony Xperia Z and Google Nexus 4 (as seen in the chart above) it suggests the Galaxy S4 will be one of the fastest smartphones on the market when it comes to loading up web pages, and miles beyond the speeds capable from a Samsung Galaxy S4.

The Browsermark test goes so far as to call it “superior to 99% of all phone browsers”.

Of course, benchmark tests rarely have a bearing on the feel of using a device in a real-world situation, but if the tests do indeed relate to a Galaxy S4 handset it is a promising start.

The Galaxy S4 is set for a big launch on March 14. We’ll have all the details from the event here on Tech Digest, so keep checking back to see what Samsung have in store for smartphone fans.
