Leaked Galaxy S5 benchmark shows Note 3-beating speed, ho-hum specs
7th Feb 2014 | 22:00
Just a middling update to the Galaxy?
Before you say "Well, duh," what's interesting is the screens seemingly confirm that the phone will indeed skimp out on the rumored 2560 x 1440 resolution screen. Instead it will feature a Full HD 1920 x 1080 display with a 480 pixel-per-inch density.
It will also have a slightly bumped up 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, although there's no word if it will be 64-bit. Meanwhile other elements of the phone's system hardware include an Adreno 330 GPU, 2GB of RAM, and Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
Perhaps the most interesting thing about the upcoming device is the 16-megapixel camera on the back. Up front, users should look for a two-megapixel sensor.
One saving grace
The hardware revealed in the latest AnTuTu screenshots fall in line with our earlier concerns that the Galaxy S5 may be the most underwhelming Samsung handset yet.
Despite the fairly standard screen and internal hardware, the Samsung Galaxy S5 might still have some things going for it. One of these is a swiping fingerprint scanner that's purported to be better than the one on Apple iPhone 5S.
We'll soon know if the Samsung Galaxy S5 is as boring as it seems on paper when it gets its big reveal at MWC 2014. Stay tuned for more!
