As Samsung readies itself up to launch the Galaxy S5, reports of it leaking out every now and then are increasing seemingly every day. The smartphone has now shown up in AnTuTu benchmark which has revealed that it will be launched in two variants. SM-G900H and SM-G900R4 are model numbers of the two devices and speculations suggest that Samsung will follow Apple's policy of iPhone 5C and 5S to make the Galaxy S5 available at two different price points.
The premium variant will be the SM-G900R4 one which will get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.5GHz coupled with an Adreno 330 GPU. It will be complemented well by the 3GB RAM doing duty inside it and will have a Quad-HD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1400 pixels.
At the back will be a 16 MP camera which will joins hands with a 2.1 MP front camera. The internal storage will stand at 32GB and it will run on Android 4.4.2 KitKat. It scored 31,843 on the benchmark.
The cheaper sibling, SM-G900H will feature the same imaging and software details. However, it will come with a Full HD display instead and get a 1.5GHz Octa-core Samsung Exynos 5422 processor along with a ARM Mali-T628 GPU. The RAM will stand at 2GB and it will come with 16GB of internal storage. It scored 35,445 on AnTuTu.
The Galaxy S5 hits the launchpad on 24th of February at the Unpacked 5 event which will be organised by the company at Barcelona. The iPhone 5C and 5S model has been successful in promoting the iPhone 5S's sales as well as making the iPhone 5C available to a wider range of audience. Will Samsung be able to replicate the same with the launch of two Galaxy S5 models?
