Likely Samsung Galaxy S5 model with Snapdragon 805 and a 5.2'' QHD (1440x2560) display revealed
Update: The SM-G906S' info tab on the GFXBench website is no longer hidden. According to the specs sheet, the suspected Galaxy S5 model will pack the still-unreleased 2.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 system chip with Adreno 420 graphics and 3GB RAM, along with a larger, 5.2-inch QHD (1440x2560) display. A 16-megapixel camera is also listed. Keep in mind that this could end being an altogether separate device, and not a Galaxy S5 model.

Follow the tech industry long enough, and you'll soon realize that a wealth of, strictly speaking, unconfirmed information on new devices comes through benchmark suites. GFXBench is pretty high on that list, with practically every manufacturer having had a slip at one point or another.

This time around, we have Samsung, and a very interesting device, dubbed SM-G906S. Now, this still unknown handset is curious for two reasons. First and foremost, and despite of having its 'Info' tab hidden, the device clearly sports one of those super-crisp Quad HD (1440x256) screens. And secondly, we've been hearing rumors of a possible Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900) with a QHD screen for a while, although the last time we were looking at device code-named SM-G900R4. That last one definitely follows the naming scheme of Galaxy S5 models more ardently, so there's obviously a decent chance that we're looking at an altogether different device with the SM-G906S (and not a Galaxy S5).

It's also unknown what kind of processor/memory combo is powering the SM-G906S, though it's probably safe to say that it's something very high end, seeing as it outperformed the Exynos-based SM-G900H Galaxy S5 in the GFXBench's Manhattan test. That's despite the former having to push a whole bunch of extra pixels. That said, it falls behind the SM-G900H in the T-Rex test. Take a look for yourself.

Thanks for the tip!

Samsung denied the F Series but something incredible is definitely brewing within the company.

Pissed because 5S sold more than S4? Sure.

Because Samsung is dragging potential customers away from them. Samsung even managed to make more profit than them last year.

Shut up, with this "premium" Galaxy F iboys.
Last time I believed you guys, that aluminum, is premium and hard material, it ruined my life.

Bought may girlfriend aluminum ring and bracelet , and she dumped me.
I bought my best friend aluminum bike-helmet for his birthday, and he sue me now for attempting murder. And still ride with his plastic helmet.

Guess WHO let this "rumors" few days befor S5 release?? ROTFL

Must be "somebody" who is afraid TO DETH by the great S5.
"Somebody" who clearly understand that the organized "band-aid" attack, doesn't help much

Lags still occur even in the latest TouchWiz UI. QHD resolution just makes things worse.

I've tried TouchWiz UI in Samsung's low end phone. Seriously it lags compared to other launchers in low end phones too. Even in my brother's Note II I still can notice micro stutter when sliding the home screen.

I had both GS3 and Note2. Force close for some apps and lags made me get rid of Galaxy series and their immature TouchWiz.

GS3 and Note2 dont have the 'latest TouchWiz' as you claim to be.
