Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900F prototype shows up in AnTuTu
Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974AC) will run the show
Since we haven’t talked about the anticipated Samsung Galaxy S5 for at least a whole day now, the Chinese media AnTuTu seems to believe that rest is for the weak and has leaked more stuff about the handset’s hardware. One of the expected variants of the device, if you can recall, the SM-G900F has actually showed up in a benchmark once again and according to inside information, the device is mostly likely to be the international variant of the Galaxy S5. In fact, it’s quite possible we’re looking at a prototype that isn’t equipped with its final loot.
The Galaxy S5 SM-G900F shows up in the AnTuTu benchmark with pretty promising hardware as the main pointer is that it tips a screen resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. Yes, we know, recently there were leaks, this time by the Korean Media, that the display would brag with the resolution of 2650×1440 pixels, however let’s not jump into conclusions so quickly.
First, another leak tipped that the Samsung Galaxy S5 would enter production in January in TWO variants, though no one has specified the principle on which they’ll differ. Second, the QHD display that is going to be announced at the MWC 2014 is still not ready yet. In all, we have few things in the equation: Galaxy S5 to arrive in two variants; a leaked prototype photo at AnTuTu’s benchmark database; and a 2K display in progress. As the smartphone might enter production closely to the MWC event, we can’t say for sure that the smartphone won’t arrive with a 2650×1440 pixels resolution. Ok? On the other hand, there’s another prototype, the Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900A that might or might not be currently tested on AT&T’s network.
Apart from that, the new leaks completely back up the previously leaked specs in terms of processing, as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974AC) will run the show coated at 2.5GHz with 3GB of RAM. Again, the leaks tip a splendid 16-megapixel rear-facing shooter and, of course, an Android 4.4 KitKat.
As far as we can see, Samsung is planning on ending its next flagship on the top of the line.
