Yes, we can't help it. We sometimes feed the hype-monster too. Here's a pseudo-followup article to the Samsung Galaxy S IV launch invite we just shared a bit ago. Apparently, someone was able to get a hold of the international version of the SGS4 for a quick Browsermark 2.0 Bench-test. When we say quick, we mean that literally. As you can see in the benchmark above, a device with the model GT-I9500 smoked all the newest phones available in this benchmark. Most industry intel points to this device as the international version of the SGS4. Even the brand new HTC One and the Sony Xperia Z get crushed in this benchmark.
Of course, these things can be faked, so we will reserve judgement on this until after the phone actually hits the streets. Luckily, we won't have to wait too long for that!
