Reported New Samsung Galaxy S5 Benchmarks Hit the Web – 1080p Display, Snapdragon 800, and 16MP Camera

Galaxy S5 benchmarks

Not to keep preaching the same message, but until OEMs hand out press releases or unveil devices on stage, nothing is ever confirmed. With that said, the newest development in the Galaxy S5 saga from Samsung are a new string of benchmarks to hit the web, further confirming previous reports that the device will not feature a QHD (2560×1440)¬†display. Furthermore, from what these benchmarks point to, the Galaxy S5 will only feature a Snapdragon 800 and not the new Snapdragon 805 processor from Qualcomm. ¬†

Another thing to point out are the reports of a 16MP rear-facing camera, as they appear to be in line with the benchmarks, and no other info out there has contradicted that. In the speed tests, the device used beats out the Galaxy Note 3 (Snapdragon 800 w/ 3GB of RAM), the LG G2 (Snapdragon 800 w/ 2GB of RAM), and the Sony Xperia Z Ultra (Snapdragon 800 w/ 2GB of RAM). So in terms of performance, we should see something quite impressive from Samsung, regardless of a crazy high resolution display.

Personally, it would be great to see Samsung continue to push mobile technology with a QHD display, but is it really necessary? Wouldn’t we only see a large fall in battery life and graphic performance? We still don’t know what exactly Samsung has coming, but with the newest evidence pointing to a somewhat tamed-down device, try not to set your expectations too high as to where no phone could ever live up to them.

Do you think QHD is necessary at this point for a top tier smartphone? How about 16MP sensors? Useful or over the top?

    I just dont see Samsung putting in a processor that is dated into their flagship. Granted the 800 is bad ass, but i just dont see them coming out with something that really isnt new. IMO, this is a pre-productoin model, maybe the 805 wasnt ready yet, but i just dont believe that samsung would do this.

    I think that what it needs it optical image stabilization. 16mp is not needed, but clear pictures, good low light performance, and clear action shots would be huge.

    So the Snapdragon 800 will remain “high end” for about 18 months for us Nexus 5 owners…nice

  • Yea as soon as they did that update I moved everything. I have a 32GB
    micro SD, and everything I can move to the sd card I have moved already.
    Plus I keep all my pics and vids on there as well. theres just still
    next to no room.

    Samsung have never made a lag free phone… The last thing we need is unnecessary screen resolution to make sgs5 lag too.

    This might be the plastic version of the Galaxy S5, because it is rumored that there were two version comming out, so this is the affordable one, and the Galaxy s5 premium one will maybe have the 2k screen as rumored, and hopefully the Snapdragon 805 cpu.

    move apps to sd fully and be able to really use the processing power for some reason the s4 still lags with out a custom rom and rooting it……………..

      • RICK RUDE

        If he installed a rom then TouchWiz wasn’t on it.

      i had the same problem with my s3 on CM based roms…i was ticked because my galaxy nexus ran smoother and thus why i didn’t buy the s4, or the note 3 after reading through forum complaints. on AT&T with a nexus 5…missing Verizon coverage though lol
