Samsung Galaxy S5 rumors and leaks had been in the air for quite some time and it was heard through a couple of different sources that the new Galaxy S5 might be releasing in two different versions. Though these were merely leaks and rumors, we have got some solid evidence at hand this time and fortunately a set of new benchmarks have been leaked which made the entire picture clearer.
After hearing about the two separate versions for the S5, some would be going back to the time when the Galaxy S4 was release with two variants; one had the Exynos 5 Octa-core chip and the other version had the quad-core SoC. This was the only major difference between the two variants but this is not going to be the case with Galaxy S5 and its two versions are going to be poles apart since one has to serve as the high end device while the other will settle in the lower end. The two versions will have hardware names SM-G900R4 (for the U.S) and SM-G900H (Europe) and it has been confirmed now that these two will have different hardware specs as well.
It has been stated by the KGI Securities” Ming Chi Kuo that the two models can rightly be tagged as “Prime” and “Standard” and this is where all the difference will lie. The so called prime version (U.S. cellular SM-G900R4) will have a 2K, 2560 x 1440 display, a 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chip, Adreno 330 graphics and 3 gigs of RAM. While on the other hand, the standard version (SM-G900H built for the European market) will have a 1920 x 1080 display, 1.5GHz octa-core Exynos 5422 processor, ARM-Mali-T628 graphics, 2 gigs of RAM and 16GB of on-board storage.
