Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom specs leak out: 20 MP camera, Exynos 5 Hexa processor, 4.8" display
If you had doubts that Samsung will be spinning the S5 branding off to various devices, just like it did with the S4, doubt no more. We heard about a Galaxy S5 Zoom sequel to last year's S4 Zoom (SM-C101), and now its full specs sheet leaked out, courtesy of a graphics benchmark database.
Chilling on the GFXBench website, we find the Samsung SM-C115 device, listed with a 20 MP camera (5184 x 3888 sensor resolution), and a 2 MP front-facing shooter, capable of 1080p video recording. The other mentioned specs are a 4.8" 720p HD display, 1.3 GHz Samsung Exynos 5 Hexa processor with ARM Mali-T624 graphics, 2 GB of RAM, and two reported storage capacities, which likely means that a dedicated memory card slot will be present, too. The latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat is what runs on the device, and we wouldn't expect anything less.
For comparison, last year's bulky S4 Zoom has a 16 MP camera, 4.3" display with qHD 540x960 pixels, dual-core Exynos, 1.5 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of storage, plus a microSD slot. It also has the whopping 10x optical zoom, and a similar feature is very likely to be in the new S5 Zoom, too. Unfortunately, the S4 Zoom is as big as a compact point-and-shoot camera, so shaving off the bulk should be at the top of Samsung's list with the S5 Zoom, if it wants better commercial success.
