While Samsung is gearing up for UNPACKED 5 event, a new Android smartphone from the South Korean house, dubbed as Galaxy Mega Plus has caught in AnTuTu benchmarks.

The alleged phone wouldn’t be totally different from the Galaxy Mega 5.8. By going test results, the Galaxy Mega Plus packs a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked 1.2GHz, so no more MediaTek chipset as assumed before.

In addition, other tech specs include 5.8-inch display (960 x 540 pixels); Adreno 305 GPU; 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, that’s expandable via micro SD card slot; 8-megapixel rear camera and 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera for video chat; and 2600 mAh battery.

The unit benchmarked at AnTuTu ran Android 4.3, and maybe Samsung will manage to make it run Android 4.4 KitKat before the phone is out.


Compared to its predecessor that comes with Broadcom chipset, the Galaxy Mega Plus will perform 40% better – thanks to Qualcomm SoC – as the benchmark data shows.

Besides, we are about a week away from the annual Mobile World Congress, to be held on February 24-27 in Barcelona, Spain, where Samsung will be showcasing its next flagship model, the Galaxy S5 complemented with the Galaxy Gear 2.

Previous reports suggest the South Korean company will launch two variants of the Galaxy S5: a standard model with plastic shell and a premium version with metal shell, same as Apple did lately with the iPhone 5C and 5S.
