There’s no shortage of leaks pointing to the alleged Samsung Galaxy S5. Earlier today, we spotted benchmark sighting on AnTuTu for a Samsung device with model number SM-G900F, which is believed to be a strong Samsung Galaxy S5 candidate. It’s not just AnTuTu, several sightings of a similar model number was spotted on BrowserMark and GFXBench (with SM-G900S model number).
Now, the notorious Twitter leaked @evleaks reported that AT&T is testing a high-res Samsung device with model number SM-G900A, sounds familiar? Well, it could be the purported Samsung Galaxy S5, but we’ve yet to come across any concrete evidence about its existence.
Well, this might go against the report we heard earlier that the upcoming handset will feature full HD display and not QHD. I would not put my entire faith in it, and still hope that Samsung will go with a QHD display for its upcoming flagship device. If you don’t remember, we also came across a rumor yesterday that the upcoming Galaxy S5 will feature a 2K display and Iris scanning technology.
Other rumored features include a Snapdragon 800 (or possibly 805) chipset, 4GB of RAM, 16MP ISOCELL camera with Android 4.4 KitKat pre-installed out of the box.
If the handset is being tested by a carrier doesn’t necessarily means it will launch any time soon. Based on rumors, the purported Samsung Galaxy S5 could see the daylight at MWC 2014 or as late as April, along with a possibility that this device could be another high-end series the Korean OEM is planning to launch.
We’ll update you once we have more information. Until then, just take all the rumors with a pinch of salt.
