Samsung Galaxy S5 specs: not so hot after all?

Samsung Galaxy S5 specs: not so hot after all?We were saying just the other day that we don’t often pay a great deal of attention to benchmarks, and indeed I’ll be burying my face in a mountain of salt just as soon as I hit Publish on this one.

A fresh Samsung Galaxy S5 benchmark touts specs that are, well, largely on par with those of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Hmm.

Specifically, AnTuTu reckons Samsung Galaxy S5 specs will include a 1080p display, 3GB of RAM, and quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. The 16MP rear camera is pretty much the only thing that stands out, while KitKat Android 4.4 really goes without saying.

Previous Samsung Galaxy S5 spec rumours have proposed a 2K 2560 x 1440 resolution, and 4GB of RAM addressed by a 64-bit Exynos processor.

Of course, it’s likely that at least some Samsung Galaxy S5 units will rock a Qualcomm processor, on account of Exynos supply issues (i.e. the fact that it'd be impossible to go Exynos on the inevitable millions and millions of units), so perhaps we’re looking at an international version of the S5.

Having said that, we’d be surprised to see the Samsung Galaxy S5 touch down with a measly 1080p resolution – as found on the Samsung Galaxy S4. Various other manufacturers are threatening to deliver 2K smartphones, including Oppo with the Find 7.

And lets not forget that this is a phone supposedly being rushed out in order to address lower-than-expected sales of the Samsung Galaxy S4, and AnTuTu’s spec sheet surely wouldn’t cut the proverbial mustard.

im pretty sure they'll be on octo cores

Snapdragon 805/Exynos Octa is my prediction.

Also it's been known for android manufacturers to use lower spec'd models first on antutu before testing the real spec ones.

Has to be octo-core, or they're going to lose sales in the next 1/4 also. I look forward to the final HTC "Two" specs as well as this. Have the HTC One just now and am considering upgrading to one of these.

2k on a phone? LOL

1080p on a phone is overkill anyway
