Possible Galaxy S5 model appears in AnTuTu benchmark with 1080p display, 16MP camera
As we continue to inch closer to the supposed unveiling of the Galaxy S5 at MWC, the flagship phone has once again made an appearance in the wild, this time in the AnTuTu benchmark database. Well, nowhere is it mentioned that the particular device is the S5, but the presence of a 16-megapixel camera does hint at the possibility, as does the latest version of Android (Android 4.4.2 KitKat.) Unfortunately, the display is still touted as a 1080p unit, though we’re pretty sure this is just a case of Samsung testing early versions without the QHD (2,560×1,440) display, which should make it to the final version of the company’s highly anticipated flagship.
The processor used is a Snapdragon 800 with Adreno 330 graphics – again, the phone should sport a Snapdragon 805 upon launch, and the fact that the benchmark lists 2 GB of RAM is a good indication of the fact that the particular device that was tested on AnTuTu is running pre-final hardware (the Note 3 has 3 GB of RAM, and it’s pretty certain the Galaxy S5 will, too.) Even with the pre-final hardware, the handset beats the Galaxy Note 3 and other non-Samsung flagships, likely because it’s running on KitKat and (hopefully) because of some optimization that Samsung has added to its software.
