A couple of weeks ago we were told to brace for two models of the Samsung Galaxy S5, namely Standard and Prime, with different processors and resolutions.
That’s the story we’re relaying again today, seasoned with a little extra detail, though this time we’re referring to them as the Samsung Galaxy S5 Standard and Premium.
The stories don’t quite tie up (in the earlier rumour it was the Prime rocking an Exynos CPU, while here an in-house processor implies cheapness), but let’s focus on the latest whispers.
SamMobile, citing AnTuTu, describes a Samsung Galaxy S5 Standard with a 1080p resolution, octa-core Exynos 5422 processor clocked at 1.5GHz, ARM Mali-T628 GPU, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB internal storage.
Moving up the ladder, there’s also a Samsung Galaxy S5 Premium, with a 2560 x 1440 resolution, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.5GHz, Adreno 330 GPU, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB internal storage.
Both the Samsung Galaxy S5 Standard and Premium include, we’re told, 16MP/2.1MP cameras, and come rocking the latest version of Android, namely KitKat 4.4.2.
For what it’s worth, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Standard actually pips the Premium model in the accompanying benchmarks, though these things are best digested with a teaspoon of delicious salt.
Things should become a whole lot clearer in two weeks, when the Samsung Galaxy S5 launches at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014.
