samsung-galaxy-s4-lens.jpgSamsung aren’t shy about putting out new handsets under the Galaxy S4 branding umbrella, but this latest rumoured phone from the Korean tech giants is perhaps the most intriguing yet. It suggests that Samsung are planning to put out a “Pro” version of the Samsung Galaxy S4, complete with an even speedier processor.

According to a fresh batch of AnTuTu benchmarks dug up by GSMarena, Samsung are planning to release a new international LTE-Advanced version of the Galaxy S4 with a Qualcomm quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3 GHz.

Without taking into account the Exynos 5 octa-core variant (unavailable in the UK), that’s a significant jump up from the 1.9GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 in the standard S4.

The handset, sporting a model number of I9506, is running Android 4.2.2 also.

As yet, there’s been no official confirmation of the handset’s existence from Samsung, but we’ll keep you posted as, when and if they announce it.
