Samsung Galaxy S5 benchmarked ahead of launch, reveals 2.5GHz quad-core processor, Full HD display, 16MP camera and more
Samsung takes great pride in launching its flagship device under the Galaxy S series and the same will be launched at an Unpacked event later this month. Samsung is doing well to keep the Galaxy S5 under wraps till now but could not really save its benchmarking results from skipping on to the interweb. A hardware spec sheet of the Galaxy S5 has leaked ahead of its debut and it is pretty underwhelming.
The smartphone's AnTuTu results have shown that the device will get a Snapdragon 800 processor under the hood which will get clocked at 2.5GHz to keep it ahead of the rest but it isn't anything ground breaking. It will join hands with a 2GB RAM out of which 1.7GB will be free for multitasking and will run on Android 4.4.2 KitKat with Touchwiz UI on top of it.
The screen which was expected to be a 2K unit won't be the one which we have thought it to be till now and will be a Full HD one only with a pixel density of 480 pixels per inch. The screen will be a 5.25-inch one. The smartphone will have an interesting bit in the form of a 16MP camera which seems to be the only inspiring part of the smartphone. At the front will be a 2.1MP snapper.
24th of February is when Samsung will launch the device officially in Barcelona and the smartphone will now go up against the likes of the Xperia Z1, LG G2 and Nexus 5 which have the same processor.
Samsung could not replicate the success of the S2 and S3 with the launch of the S4 and it seems like the S5 won't do any wonders as well if the rumoured specs become a reality. Do let us know as to what you think about the Galaxy S5.
