Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo Benchmark Testing With Android 4.4.4 and Exynos Processor
Samsung has been on a roll with releasing handsets this year, the Galaxy K Zoom, the Galaxy Tab S, the Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy S5 Mini being just a few of what the South Korean tech giant brought to the market. Samsung also has a few devices to come in the future as well, and we recently hear that a Galaxy S5 Neo is in the making as well.
We hear that a certain device, under the name of SM-G850, was seen in the GFXbench benchmark testing. According to KopenGalaxyS5, the handset at hand is actually the Galaxy S5 Neo which is supposed to be a cheaper version of the Galaxy S5 without a few of the flagship’s specs as well as a smaller display. There are speculations that the handset is very similar to the Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo smartphone we saw released at Q2 2014.
After the benchmark testing results came in, we could see that the device will be equipped with a 4.7 inches display that can render a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The handset will be powered by an Exynos 5 Octa 5410 processor that works at 1.8 GHz paired either with a Cortex A15 quad core or a Cortex A7 quad core. The graphics chip is ARM Mali T628. The Samsung will support 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage capacity. As for operating system, the Galaxy S5 Neo will run on Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
For connectivity, we can see that the handset will support Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC. The Galaxy S5 Neo does actually pretty good in the camera department: it features an 11MP primary camera that comes with features like HDR, autofocus, face detection and LED flash and a secondary camera of 2MP.
Reading further in the report, we can see that the SM-G850 device is going to be shipped to India (Bangalore and Delhi) for some final testing and evaluation. We see that the handset will only be available in a single SIM version and it will be priced somewhere $304.00. If this device is the Neo version of the Samsung Galaxy S5, we cannot say, but we sure hope so because it would make one or two Sammy fans very happy. We’ll just have to wait and see what Samsung brings to the table.
