Samsung Galaxy S5 Specs and Benchmarks Reportedly Leak

gs5results 675403

The Galaxy S5 hasn’t been announced yet, but we may already have a fairly clear picture of what specs Samsung’s flagship may have–and how well it will perform. Benchmark results for what may be the Galaxy S4 successor have just appeared online, hinting at different hardware than what we’ve been expecting thus far.

Lining up with previous rumors, the purported screenshots obtained by list a 16-megapixel camera sensor as the phone’s  main shooter. However, other specs include a 1080p display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, while previous rumors suggested a QHD 2,560 x 1,440 resolution display and either a more powerful Snapdragon 805 or Exynos 6 64-bit CPU.

Still, that doesn’t mean the S5 won’t be a powerhouse if the screenshots turn out to be accurate. The device scored 35,666 on AnTuTu, a benchmark that measures a device’s general performance. This is higher than the Galaxy S4 (23,693), HTC One (24,295) and the LG G2 (34,778) scored in our reviews. It’s also a much better score than the smartphone category average (18,516) based on our testing.

It’s important to note that the Italian tech blog doesn’t mention how the screenshots were obtained. It’s entirely possible that this is a preproduction version of the S5 that doesn’t have final hardware.

Other rumors point to Samsung launching two models of its S5, a higher-end and lower-end version, so it’s possible that we’re seeing the lesser of the two. Although the AnTuTu score is impressive, we’ve been a bit skeptical of benchmark results on Samsung phones ever since the company was caught fudging test scores last year.

Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S5 at its Unpacked event on Feb. 24 in Barcelona, and we’ll be on the grounds to bring you the details and our own impressions.
