Galaxy S5 to Sport On-Screen Buttons, Leaked Benchmark Unveils

One of the features that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 flagship device will arrive on shelves with is on-screen buttons, a recent leak suggests.

The handset was long rumored to arrive on the market without a home button, but some of the latest reports on it suggest that Samsung might actually launch it with this feature inside. However, leaked AnTuTu benchmark screenshots (available via mobifo.nl) suggest that the phone will come with on-screen buttons. Thus, the inclusion of a home button on the phone would make no sense. Of course, considering the fact that the leak does not fall in line with previous reports and that these benchmarks can be easily tampered with, we’ll have to take the info with a grain of salt for the time being. We should also note that the icons displayed in the status bar in the leaked screenshots are blue and somewhat inconsistent with the whitened theme that Android 4.4.2 KitKat, the platform on top of this device, is expected to bring.

Of course, there is also the possibility that Samsung will make its own set of customizations to the phone’s UI, as part of its new TouchWiz interface. The aforementioned leak also confirms that the mobile phone will hit shelves with a 1080p touchscreen display, and not with the previously rumored Quad HD display, as GSMArena notes. The benchmark also unveils that the handset is powered by an Exynos 5420 processor, and that it will arrive on shelves with 3GB of RAM packed inside, something that has been long rumored to happen. On the back, the smartphone will feature a 16-megapixel camera capable of recording videos in 2160p resolution. A front camera and the usual set of connectivity capabilities are also expected to be included inside the upcoming device.

With no official confirmation on any of the above, we’ll take it all with a big grain of salt, though specifics on the matter should be unveiled as soon as next week.
