Samsung Galaxy S5 benchmark leaks suggest two phones gunning for Apple's 5S and 5C
AnTuTu is the benchmarking site equivalent of putting your smartphone under a spotlight as you try to sneak it out of a back door. Yet it keeps being used to leak phones. Now the results for two versions of a potential Samsung Galaxy S5 have turned up, suggesting an affordable version like Apple's iPhone 5C could also appear alongside the flagship S5.
The first, SM-G900R4, has a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB storage, 16-megapixel and 2-megapixel cameras, Android 4.4.2 and an eye-watering 1440 x 2560 resolution display. All very impressive, apart from the lack of higher resolution camera and Snapdragon 805 we're still holding out hope for.
The other variant, SM-G900H, has a 1.5GHz octa-core Exynos 5422 processor with Mali-T628 graphics. This has 2GB of RAM, 16GB storage, 16-megapixel and 2-megapixel cameras, Android 4.4.2 and a 1080 x 1920 display. This version sounds nearer to the S4 than an S5.
Could Samsung be going the way of Apple by releasing two flagship handsets at varying levels of power and price? That would explain the Exynos chip in the lower specced model as it's made by Samsung and could be sold for less.
Of course there's every chance Samsung is putting out decoy handsets to sites like AnTuTu where the S5 has appeared before and where it knows leaks are likely. Here's hoping the Samsung Galaxy S5 reveal on 24 February has something really special.
