Benchmarks show two Samsung Galaxy S5 variants planned

Wide difference in specification suggests similar launch strategy to iPhone 5s, 5c

Samsung could be preparing two versions of the Galaxy S5 for launch, at its Unpacked Event at Mobile World Congress this month. Recent benchmarks appear to show two different sets of specifications being used for variants of the smartphone, and could potentially lead to a situation where Samsung will offer a high-end model and a further premium version of the same phone at the same time.

AnTuTu benchmarks spotted by SamMobile show the version with the model number SM-G900R4 has a resolution of 1440x2560, a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 16-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front camera, and Android 4.4.2. The second version, model SM-G900H, shows a 1080x1920 display with a 1.5GHz octa-core Exynos processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage, with similar cameras and operating system.

While the company has previously launched versions of its devices packing slightly altered internals for region-specific or functional reasons, such as using a different processor for its LTE device compared to the 3G-specific model, Samsung has not released two versions of the same design with widely-differing base specifications. If the benchmarks are valid, rather than faked by the manufacturer using decoy devices, it could mean Samsung will offer two levels of device to its customers at the same time, following in the footsteps of Apple and its iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c launch.
