Samsung's upcoming flagship phone, the Galaxy S5, is once again in the spotlight as its rumoured specifications have leaked online via AnTuTu benchmark. The benchmark results seem to be cleverly tampered with to hide the model number or name of the device being tested.
However, the benchmark confirms a few noteworthy specifications including 2.5GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, 16 MP rear-camera and a 2MP front-camera, besides running Android 4.4.2 KitKat as its stock firmware.
Given the fact that the device is running KitKat with 2GB of RAM and Adreno 330 graphics, it is almost certain that the hardware is a pre-final version being used for carrier testing. If there is any truth to the reported Galaxy S5 benchmark scores, then we may expect the final release of the handset to be upgraded to a Snapdragon 805 processor along with a QHD display sporting 2,560x1440 pixels resolution at launch.
As Sam Mobile reports, the handset clearly beats the Galaxy Note 3 and other non-Samsung flagships in the benchmark mainly due to key software optimisations added to stock KitKat firmware by Samsung.
Samsung had earlier sent out press invitations revealing its plans to hold a grand unpacked event on 24 February, in Spain.
Though the event does not reveal any details about product launch, the number 5 placed beside "UNPACKED" clearly throws a hint about a probable release for Galaxy S5.
