Samsung Galaxy S5 Benchmark Reveals Minor Upgrades

As Samsung prepares to release the next generation of its flagship Android smartphone, the Galaxy S5, specifications have emerged through a benchmarking website revealing some of the upgrades we can expect when the must-have handset is launched this spring.

Expected to go official at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona from the 24th to 27th of February, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is reported through AnTuTu to rock a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 2.5GHz quad-core CPU, faster than the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and it will of course come running latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

Despite previous rumours of considerable screen improvements the screen remains a 5” display with 1920 x 1080p Full HD quality but the camera gets a boost to 16-megapixels, with 2-megapixels returning up front.

Aside from a reasonable leap forward in processor speed, these specs do not appear to boast much over the previous model Samsung Galaxy S4, but we can hope there could be some surprises in store when the Korean co. appears at the Mobile World Congress, such as big changes to the user interface as pictured recently.

With the Samsung Galaxy S4 confirmed in a new Black casing and Android 4.4 KitKat arriving on the preceding smartphone soon, we may be inclined to keep our purse strings closed for the moment.
