According to a new report published today, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo is already being made available for pre-orders by some Czech retail stores. As we wrote earlier this month, the device is a mid-ranger
powered by Sammy's new Exynos 7580 SoC
. The chipset comes with an octa-core CPU featuring eight Cortex A-53 cores and a maximum clock speed of 1.6GHz. The Mali-T720 GPU crunches the graphics. Despite the higher model number, this is not quite as powerful as the octa-core Exynos 5422 SoC or the quad-core Snapdragon 801 SoC that poweres the Samsung Galaxy S5
The Galaxy S5 Neo will also come with a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. 2GB of RAM is inside with 16GB of expandable memory. A 16MP camera adorns the back of the handset, and a 2800mAh battery keeps the lights on. Android 5.1 is pre-installed.
As we noted, the phone is available to be pre-ordered in the Czech Republic priced at the equivalent of $490 USD. One retailer in the region is listing a delivery date of July 3rd.
