Sprint’s Galaxy S5 User Agent Profile shows standard model with lower specs

Yesterday, we reported that there might be two models of the Samsung Galaxy S5 released. If the information were true, it would mean that the Exynos model of the device would come with a 1080p display, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of memory, while the Snapdragon model would have a QHD display, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Benchmarks pinned the US Cellular model as a “premium” Galaxy S5, so we assumed the US market would be getting the high-end model.

The latest info throws that theory out the window. According to a User Agent Profile from Sprint, the Sprint model of the Galaxy S5 will feature a 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and a 13MP camera. This sounds identical to the “standard” version of the Galaxy S5 described for Europe and supports the existence of two different models of the Galaxy S5. Confused?

It could be that both models are coming to the US. But with the standard and premium models seemingly having the same name and model number, it’s hard to see how it would be possible to advertise both without diminishing the value of the premium model. Or, someone somewhere got all this information wrong and Samsung will just show off one model of the Galaxy S5 at its Unpacked event later this month. Who knows? Tell us what you’re expecting from Samsung in the comments!

    Sounds like the Europeans are getting a galaxy s4

      Even worse since every new Galaxy S bloatware consumes more and more storage and RAM than the last one. So the 16GB/2GB S5 would have like 4GB user available storage and like 80% of the RAM already consumed out of the box.

      Every piece of news I see for the S5 focuses only on the screen, storage, and RAM. No talk at all about the CPU. How many cores? Frequency? Battery life? How many mA?

      • BlazeHN

        Looks like its Snapdragon S800, the same one on the Note 3. (not S805)

  • Canuckle

    It sounds like there might be a Samsung S5S and an S5C. :-) Will the cheaper model come in a multitude of plastic colors that are environmentally friendly?

    The S5 is right up there with the Galaxy Gear as the announcements generating the least amount of excitement for me.

    Let’s move past this and bring on the Note IV!

  • BlazeHN

    I just need this oficial S5 anouncement to be really sure I’m not missing anything “really” relevant and then just finally pass from S4 to Note 3 and then just wait for the Note 4.

    There are always variants of the Samsung flagship phones.

    It’s the Samsung mobile way.

    Its a shame that the exynos line has lost its edge recently as Samsung prided itself on its performance. I guess they can afford to edge their bets on snapdragon and their own SOC.

    Doesn’t make how many models they have, there will be more models later as well.

    Soooo confused over all the speculation so just ordered the Note 3. It’ll do all I need to do.
