New Samsung Galaxy S5 benchmark test results leak the performance scores and specs of two rumored versions of the upcoming flagship device. Prior specs rumors surrounding the S5 unveiled two possible processors on board, the Exynos 6 Octa and a Snapdragon 805.
According to Sammobile over the weekend (Feb. 8), Antutu benchmark test results detail the existence of two versions of the Galaxy S5. One version, pegged as the “premium” variant (model number SM-G900R4) features a 2.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. The other “standard” variant (model number SM-G900H) features a 1.5 GHz octa-core Samsung Exynos 5422 processor.
While the benchmark leak contradicts rumored features of a 64-bit 2 GHz octa-core Exynos 6 or a 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 805 CPU, it supports the speculation of two versions of the Galaxy S5. For this reason, it’s best to always take rumors and leaks with a grain of salt.
As Sammobile reports, benchmark test data indicates that the “premium” S5 with Snapdragon inside features a QHD display resolution of 2560 x 1400, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, an Adreno 330 GPU, a 16 MP back camera and a 2.1 MP front camera.
The Exynos CPU “standard” S5 variant features a full HD display resolution of 1920 x 1080, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage and an ARM Mali-T628 GPU. The camera specs are identical to that of the premium version and both devices are said to run the latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS.
Details about the premium version of the Galaxy S5 support existing rumored specs, with the exception of the front camera. Previous suggestions point to a 3.2 MP front camera instead of the 2.1 MP revealed in the benchmark leak.
The final benchmark score of the premium Galaxy S5 (SM-G900R4) Snapdragon CPU was 31,843 points. It’s bested by the Exynos CPU of the standard S5 (SM-6900H) which scored a total of 35,445.
Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S5 smartphone at its upcoming "Unpacked 5" event in Barcelona on February 24.
