galaxy s5 concept 7

Samsung’s Galaxy S5 may not offer a huge jump in specs as compared to its predecessor, the Galaxy S4. An alleged benchmark for the smartphone recently popped up, and it shows a similar processor to what the Galaxy S4 already offers, though it has some improvements in a couple of areas.

The alleged AnTuTu benchmark points to a Snapdragon 800 processor, and while it doesn’t list a clockspeed the device has a marked improvement in its AnTuTu score compared to the Galaxy S4. The benchmark comes in at about 35,666, while the Galaxy S4 has a score of 23,693, according to LAPTOP. That suggests at least a faster processor speed, or some other form of performance enhancement.


We also see that the device may ship with a 1080p display, which fits with a recent report from The New York Times that said Samsung had no plans to include a quad HD screen on this model, despite rumors to the contrary.The main improvement we can see is a bump to a 15.9-megapixel camera, up from the 13-megapixel shooter on the Galaxy S4. Under the hood, the device is running Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box.

So what does this tell us? The New York Times said this should be an iterative improvement, at least from the spec side, but perhaps we can expect more premium build materials. We’d love to see the use of aluminum on a Samsung device, though the company may decide to move forward with the faux leather look we saw on the Galaxy Note 3, though that’s still plastic. Samsung is hosting its Unpacked 5 event in Barcelona on Feb. 24, where we expect to see the Galaxy S5 for the first time.
