The upcoming flagship of Samsung has appeared on the AnTuTu benchmark tests, revealing the possible hardware and software specifications. Galaxy S5, the next flagship smartphone is likely to debut in the first half of 2014, probably in March or April.
Codenamed SM-G900F, the international version of the Galaxy S5 may have a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 800 clocked at 2.5 GHz, Adreno 330 GPU, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, something like the existing Galaxy Note 3 specs. In addition to 2.1-megapixel front-facing sensor, the phone will boast a 16-megapixel rear camera. The smartphone runs Android 4.4 KitKat and would have a full HD display with resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
The components chosen by the South Korean for the next sensation still in question as would it be one powerful smartphone, but nothing is certain until or unless some official details surface. ZDNet believes that the specifications could be improved further compared to those in the leaked benchmarks as several analysts expected a Quad HD (2K) display.
In fact, according to recent rumors, Samsung will be the first to introduce a smartphone featuring Quad HD display at the Mobile World Congress 2014 event, which will take place in Barcelona in February.
In addition, the specs appeared on AnTuTu Benchmark are different from those leaked in the past, which saw the presence of a 64-bit processor Exynos, a 4000 mAh battery and a new version of TouchWiz user interface, designed for a more intuitive and simply better in every area. Hence, it’s being said that there would be two variants of the Galaxy S5, one characterized by a metal shell — like the HTC One — and the another one with a traditional plastic body.
