Alleged Samsung Galaxy S5 Variant Pops Up on Benchmark
Samsung may have started testing prototypes or a variant of its next Galaxy S flagship device.
According to the AnTuTu team, a Samsung model SM-G900F has shown up on its benchmark database and they are “almost sure” this is the international variant of the alleged Galaxy S5.
The benchmark database reveals that the device has a display resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. This contradicts an earlier report claiming that Samsung is introducing a smartphone with QHD (2,560 x 1,440 pixels) next year. Since the Galaxy S5 is its flagship smartphone, it is unlikely that Samsung will debut it without a higher resolution display.
The device also runs on the newer Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor (MSM8974AC) which has a higher clock speed of 2.5GHz, and 3GB RAM. It also sports a 16-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and Android 4.4 KitKat.
South Korean news site Digital Daily reported in October that the Galaxy S5 will run on a new Exynos 6 processor developed by Samsung that is based on a 64-bit architecture, and Samsung’s mobile business chief Shin Jong-kyun said that the next generation of Galaxy-branded smartphones will have 64-bit processing capability.
