Following the tradition that wants to launch “downgraded” versions of its flagships, Samsung seems to be ready for the launch of the new Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo.
In an exclusive article, Sammobile supports that the Galaxy s5 Neo (SM-G903F) will have a 5.1inch Super AMOLED screen with a 1920×1080 resolution, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory.
Furthermore, the device will be equipped with a back camera of 16MP and a resolutions sensor as well as a 2,800 mAh battery, just like the “authentic” Galaxy S5. Besides the battery the two devices will have more things in common such as the dimensions and the weight (141mm x 72.5mm x 8.1mm and 145g).
The main difference between the two of them is the processor since the Galaxy S5 Neo will have a new 64bit, Octa Core Exynow 7580 processor whose performance leaked a few days ago on GFXBench. The said SoC consists of 8 64bit cored (it is probably an ARM Cortex-A53) clocked at 1.6GHz and the Mali-T720 GPU.
Also, this SoC must be considered of inferior possibilities than the Exynos 5422 and Snapdragon 801 that are used in Galaxy S5.
Another important and noticeable difference is the front camera that has been upgraded with a 5MP resolution, similar to the resolution one meets on the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge and the Galaxy A series.
The new Galaxy S5 Neo will be released in single-Sim and dual-Sim editions with the last one having the code name SM-G903FD. The dual-SIM edition will more likely be mostly released in Indian, Chinese and Russian markets. The new Samsung’s smartphone will support LTE-A networks while it will run with the newest Android edition, the Android 5.1 Lollipop in combination with the TouchWiz.
However, in Sammobile’s article there was no reference to the release date of the new Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo. So besides the technical features – that seem pretty decent – and the price that has also yet to be revealed, what we have so far is an exceptional choice for those who want a great smartphone at a lower budget range.
