    Last year, Samsung announced a special variant of its flagship device, the Galaxy S4 Zoom. The main initiative behind the Galaxy S4 Zoom was to combine the connectivity of a smartphone and the image quality of a compact camera, making it more of a hybrid device. This year we weren’t expecting Samsung to release a Zoom variant of its latest flagship device, the Galaxy S5, because the device already has a spectacular camera, with excellent image quality and software features. However, it looks like Samsung already has the Zoom variant in the pipeline and is planning to release it soon. Today, thanks to our elite friends, we can confirm some of the device's specifications, plus show you how the device performs in Antutu Benchmark.

    Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom (SM-C115) will pack a 4.8-inch SuperAMOLED HD (1280×720) display, 6-core  Samsung Exynos 5 Hexa (5260) SoC with ARM’s big.LITTLE HMP technology; two 1.7GHz Cortex-A15 cores and four 1.3GHz Cortex-A7 cores, Quad-core ARM Mali-T624 GPU, 2GB RAM, 20.2-Megapixel (5184×3888) camera sensor with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS), Xenon Flash, 10x optical zoom, and a 2.1-Megapixel (1920×1080) front facing camera. The device will also sport a MicroSD card slot for storage expandability. On the software side of things, the S5 Zoom will come with Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box with Samsung’s latest TouchWiz UX, and a plethora of software based camera features.

    In terms of connectivity, the Galaxy S5 Zoom will offer WiFi 802.11ac support on top of the usual a/b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, DLNA, Wi-Fi hotspot, and an IR blaster is included for remote control access using Samsung's WatchON service. NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 LE / ANT+ and MicroUSB 2.0 port for syncing and charging the device.

    Lens comparison
    Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom: 4.4-44mm 1:3.1-6.3 24mm
    Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom: 4.3-43mm 1:3.1-6.3 24mm
    Samsung Galaxy Camera: 4.1-86.1mm 1:2.8-5.9 23mm

    As you can see in the screenshots above, the Galaxy S5 Zoom scored a total of 33252 points in Antutu benchmark, which makes it faster than the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One (M7) both sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 SoC. However, keep in mind that the benchmark was performed on early test software and results may differ with the final retail software.
