    AnTuTu seems to be the new place to find new unannounced phones, as this new benchmark score from the site reveals a Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone that may be using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. Thanks to the benchmark screenshot, the model number of SHV-E330S was revealed which matches quite closely with the LTE-enabled Samsung Galaxy S4 released solely for Korea. The reason why it could be using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor is because it is running at 2265MHz, a speed that supposedly only the Snapdragon 800 can achieve without overheating.

    While you can control your Samsung Galaxy S4 with a wave of your hand, have you ever wondered if you can do that for your TV or your other household appliances?

If you've ever played Microsoft's Kinect motion-control games, it seems a lot like it, using a pushing gesture that isn't normally used in everyday life to activate the system and followed by a different gesture to indicate what you want the system to do.
