It has only been a month since Samsung launched its flagship Galaxy S4 (GT-I9500/9505) smartphone. So it obviously grabs everyone’s attention if we spot a Galaxy GT-I9600 on AnTuTu. Speculations follow.

We are well aware of Samsung’s internal coding system that is given to their phones. The Galaxy S3 was the GT-I9300, the S4 is the GT-i9500, so what may be this new addition to the group, i.e. GT-I9600? Spotted on AnTuTu, the Samsung Galaxy GT-I9600 is said to run on Android 4.3.2 (we smell something fishy here), with the CPU clocked in at just 1.4 GHz.

It’s entirely possible that the AnTuTu entry is false, it’s simply too early for a Galaxy model superseding the Galaxy S4 so soon. We definitely know that it isn’t the Galaxy S5 either (our best guess is that it would be the GT-I9700). However, there have been numerous devices in the past that launch with similar names as the flagship, for example the Galaxy S Plus I9001, or the Galaxy S2 Plus I9105. But then again, such devices have only a single digit differentiating it from the flagship (usually the last one).

The low CPU clock only adds to the confusion, why would a higher end model be spec’ed lower? And lastly, Android 4.3 isn’t out yet, 4.3.2 is just a bit too hard to digest.
