Galaxy S5 Benchmark Result Spotted with 5.2-Inch Screen, Full HD Resolution

Samsung Galaxy S5 was one of the most anticipated smartphones at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last week, but the hardware specifications that Samsung has announced for the device were not in line with what many enthusiasts were actually expecting.

To be more precise, Samsung unveiled the new device with a 5.1-inch touchscreen display capable of delivering a full HD resolution and with a 2.5GHz quad-core processor inside, while many were dreaming of a 5.2-inch 2K screen and a 64-bit octa-core CPU. While it might seem that Samsung has scrapped plans for very high-end hardware specs inside the smartphone, it appears that things are not quite as such, and that a new flavor of Galaxy S5 might hit shelves later this year. Just as mentioned above, it would include a larger screen and a more powerful processor, and a previously spotted AnTuTu benchmark emerged online to confirm that, as PhoneArena notes. However, things are not as simple in the end, and a brand new Galaxy S5 model was spotted online over the weekend, with model number SM-G900H attached to it, and with a 5.2-inch screen. It can be seen listed on this page on the GFXBench website.

What’s confusing about it is the fact that it can deliver only a full HD (1080p) resolution. The mobile phone is also listed there with a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa (4xCortex A15 + 4xCortex A7 - ARMv7 big.LITTLE) processor inside and with the ARM Mali-T628 MP6 (hexa-core) GPU. Running under the Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system, the Samsung SM-G900H packs a 16-megapixel camera on the back, a 2MP front camera, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal memory. When looking at these specs, one immediately understands that this is not the premium version of Galaxy S5 that was long rumored to arrive on shelves this year, but a brand new favor of the flagship handset.

What’s unclear about it, however, is why Samsung would plan on launching the phone in so many variants. In the end, they might prove to be confusing to users. However, this would not be the first time that the South Korean mobile phone maker actually releases various iterations of the same device, aiming each of them at different markets out there, in an attempt to increase sales. Unfortunately, there’s no official confirmation on plans to make a similar move with the Galaxy S5 too, and we’ll have to wait for a formal announcement to learn more on the matter. Hopefully, such an unveiling will come sooner rather than later, so stay tuned.
