Benchmarking programs are quite handy for people like me and also for manufacturers, allowing you to see how a device compares to other devices. Although sometimes people do make the mistake of being connected to the Internet and accidentally uploading the device details. Which for a non announced device is a little awkward.
Well once again another manufacturer has made that mistake and another device has been revealed. This time though it’s the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active.
The GFXBench benchmark database shows various things about this new device, which as expected will be slightly lower spec than the Galaxy S5. Here is what has been revealed.
- 5.1″ 1080p display.
- Snapdragon 800 processor.
- 2GB of RAM.
- 16-megapixel rear camera.
- 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
- 16GB of storage.
- Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
Costs will be cut so that they can add a higher level of water and dust proof. Keeping the cost lower or close to the existing Galaxy S5. It might even get announced in June at the next unpacked event. Design wise nothing has been revealed yet, but I’d expect a more rugged design like last year. Which to be honest I preferred over the Galaxy S4.
