Alleged Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom specs leak; phone scores high on AnTuTu

Alleged Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom specs leak; phone scores high on AnTuTu
Samsung is once again going to offer a special camera-centric version of its flagship phone. With a more than competent 16MP rear-facing shooter on the Samsung Galaxy S5, will there be enough goodies tossed onto the camera of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom to justify buying that model? Before you can make that decision, you need to know the specs of the device. While Samsung has not officially unveiled the Galaxy S5 Zoom, a report published on Friday repeated what allegedly are the specs of the handset.

Based on these leaked specs, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom will be equipped with a 4.8 inch SuperAMOLED screen with resolution of 720 x 1280. Under the hood is a six-core Samsung Exynos 5 Hecta SoC. The Mali-T624 GPU handles graphics and 2GB of RAM is on board. A microSD slot comes with the unit, and Android 4.4.2 is installed out of the box. The camera will feature a 20.2MP sensor with OIS, a Xenon Flash and a 10x optical zoom. That compares with the aforementioned 16MP snapper on the back of the Samsung Galaxy S5, which will feature an LED flash. The front-facing shooter on the "Zoom" will contain a 2.1MP sensor.

Just because the phone is designed for those who focus on photography (pardon the pun), it doesn't make this model a slouch by any stretch of the imagination. The Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom was put through the AnTuTu benchmark test where it scored an impressive 33,252. Keep in mind that this result was achieved using test software, so a score using the final build might differ.

I don't care in the least about benchmarks. Having a real point and shoot handy at all times is epic. Maybe this one will come to Big Red. Probably be the only phone that get the N3 out of my hands.

Still the S5 zoom will suck just like the S4 zoom! Till now Nokia is still on top with camera. S4 was a piece of crap.....

Htc didnt cheat ! They used high performance mode. Also You can use phone at high performance but battery will drain faster than normal.

I havent got my hands of M8. If i enable high performance and the game run smoother, it's not called cheat. Smooth here means faster quiting, faster loading, better experience, etc. If the performance doesnt increase at all (aside benchmark app), it's called cheat. But i doubt the game would increase the perfomance in this mode since most game still using at max 2 cores. We might see the benefit when games could use more than 2 cores.

It's the Exynos 5 Hexa, not Hecta. Hecta means 100.

So this is Samsung's answer to the Pureview? ;-) Would have been nice if they put OIS and Xenon flash in their phones, oh well.

Sensor size matters. I hope Samsung didn't put a small 1/3 sensor on the Zoom 2 like they did on the original. If the device is going to be clearly focused on the camera and have the extra bulk for optical zoom, Samsung should at least put in a 1/1.2 sensor (matching the 808 PureView in sensor size) or greater. No excuses such as "due to the thin profile" and it would be a shame to have another small camera sensor. Come on Samsung, don't be cheap! Give us a complete camera package that has camera hardware worth its looks.

I would bet on a smaller sensor like a 1/2.2 or the like because of the optical zoom. While sensor matters, big time, I think they will going with optical vs sensor for this one. I could be wrong.

Update your information... samsung already dropped optimal modes which cheat benchmarks... note 3 is without any cheating code

Samsung already removed the code which boosted the performance.... It is it... Htc is still doing it though...

So know your telling me is that on my car it has a turbo button when I'm trying to accelerate speed on an uphill 30 degree road by switching this feature on is classed as cheating,,, really what a theory and weird thinking brain of yours! So on my i7 SONY laptop there is a switch which you slide to power so when power is needed for multitasking by switching this on is cheating, really,,,,, ? Looks like you don't like power ?

The more an apps could use the number of core in our devices, the more accurate the benchmark indicates. We might not see the benefit in benchmark because im using LG G pro and i always found that even on heaviest gaming, only 2 cores active and the 2 others idle. What if there's an app that really utilize 3 or more cores? That's when benchmark count.

and the price will be higher than the s5... hopefully not. this one is rumored to be better because it won't be having the bulge if the camera is not in use.
