Galaxy S5 LTE-A for Europe (SM-G901) will feature Full HD display and Snapdragon 805 CPU
The Samsung SM-G901 has been benchmarked using GFXBench, thereby spilling information regarding its internal hardware. It is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor which is clocked at 2.45GHz along with Adreno 420 GPU. It features 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage space. The 5.2-inch screen is listed with a resolution of 1920×1080, which our sources tell us will be the final resolution instead of 2560×1440 like the Galaxy S5 LTE-A for South Korea. The primary camera used in this device is listed to have a resolution of 16-megapixel but it might be the same 16-megapixel ISOCELL sensor which is used in the Galaxy S5, along with a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
We can confirm that the SM-G901 is the Galaxy S5 LTE-A variant for European markets, something earlier leaks have also indicated. Based on the benchmark scores, it appears that the new Adreno 420 GPU (and the processor itself) is almost twice as fast when compared to the Mali-T628 MP6 and Adreno 330, which were used in the original Galaxy S5, and should offer compelling performance thanks to the lower screen resolution when compared to the Galaxy S5 LTE-A for South Korea.Join the Discussion
