AnTuTu benchmarks show specs of two different Galaxy S5 models

Samsung Logo 2

The Samsung flagship has launched in two different models around the world for many years. There was always the Exynos model (3G only) and the Snapdragon model with LTE. The difference between these devices has been the processor, while the rest of the hardware stayed the same. But we may be looking at a bigger difference this year. There is a rumor going around that there will be a “Standard” and a “Prime” version of the Galaxy S5, and these AnTuTu benchmark scores support that theory.


These are two different models of the Galaxy S5 with completely different specs. The SM-G900H should be the European model, while the SM-G900R4 should be the US Cellular model. As you can see, besides a processor difference, the display, RAM and storage are completely different. The European version has a 1080p display, an Exynos 5422 octa core processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. The US Cellular model has a QHD display, a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 800 quad core, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

If these specs end up being real (and it’s not that hard to fake specs on benchmarks), the idea that there will be two utterly different hardware platforms for the Galaxy S5 would make sense. Maybe Samsung realizes how unnecessary a 3G model is and wants to downplay it. Who knows, but we’ll find out at Samsung’s Unpacked event on the 24th! Do you think it’s a good idea to have a higher and lower end model of the Galaxy S5? Or should one model suffice?

    Sounds weird… if I were European and they release a lower specs model for my market that would sux, and people would just stick with the S4 / Note 3.

    Anyways the US versión looks very similar to what Note 3 already is, just some more unnecesary screen resolution to consume more processing power / battery.

    • Human

      Who needs a screen at that resolution anyway? 1080p is just fine.

      • BlazeHN

        Even 720p is more than enought, 1440p on a sub 7″ screen is a joke…

        Thats why iPhone also beats on benchmark scores with their 640p sub HD screen runing everything smootly with lower processor.

        Let’s face it SAMSUNG IS ANDROID

          Let’s face it, you’re delusional, “plain and simple”.

        • redraider133

          No, no, no. Samsung is a bloated skin on top of android. Go ask people what OS they use and if it is a samsung bet they say Galaxy because most do not know they are running android, and they are unable to tell with the touchwiz skin on top of the OS.

          • BlazeHN

            Agreed, its like if Touchwiz and Vanilla Android were two totally different OS.

        • Lou Sasshole

          You look like a mangled up turkey ballsack and that’s the bottom line.

  • Human

    The only reason Samsung added more RAM is so that all the bloatware can run in the background.

  • Alec Waddelow

    Samsung is making the wrong move having screen resolution that high. Completely unnecessary, and will be a battery drain. 1080p or 720p is completely adequate for me. Why go higher, just so you can talk shit on Apple?

  • LG

    the bloatwares will eat that 3gb ram mark my words!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • tee

    These S5 specs circulating on the Internet is nothing different from the note 3 and Higher resolutions and bloatwares does not impress me. Samsung is just in for the fun of things. Fancy features which only dies out after a few weeks. Apps that only sits in the phone wasting usable space. Nothing done on design..no differences between devices and battery problems just after a few months. Samsung really needs to do better because times are changing and others are really really doing better stuff. Its just a matter of time and they will be as famous.

    • Richard Yarrell

      As usual plain and simple SAMSUNG is android nothing else will ever matter period

      • squiddy20

        As usual, the Samsung fanboy makes a statement, and doesn’t back it up with any proof/facts. You’ve been singing the same song for 2 years, and haven’t provided one shred of evidence as to *why* “Samsung is Android”, other than market share. Whoop-dee-do. 2.5 years ago, HTC had close to, if not the lion’s share of the market. Now look at them. A couple years before that, Apple had almost the entire smartphone market. Now look at them. Contrary to your ridiculous viewpoints, market share is not a good metric for what’s “boss”. It changes, and it can change quite rapidly. Get a life.

      • redraider133

        But I thought “HTC was the best” and “you would never touch samsung with a 10 foot pole because of their “cheap plastic”?? Please you change your tune every year…. The blind fanboyism is off the charts with you…

  • tsheets

    I’ve never owned a Samsung device (I prefer to take my beatings from Motorola) but will agree with you conceptually. But, Samsung is doing something right. There’s more awareness of their devices in the general population now than there’s ever been. They may fall from grace at some point, but, I don’t think that it’s going to happen any time soon. They’re going to continue to ‘go with what works’ until it doesn’t.

  • redraider133

    Samsung has gotten so large they seem to be pulling an apple with these “minor upgrades” refine touchwiz so it runs buttery smooth and no more glossy plastic and people won’t complain.
