Another claimed Galaxy S5 screenshot hints at two versions - 1080p one with Exynos CPU, and 1440p with Snapdragon

Another claimed Galaxy S5 screenshot hints at two versions - 1080p one with Exynos CPU, and 1440p with Snapdragon
After the purported Galaxy S5 screenshot last week, that revealed a QHD display and Snapdragon 800 could be in store, yet another one is making the rounds, this time listing an Exynos 5420, and 1080p display.

We've had this contradiction before, too, when AnTuTu benchmark screenshots revealed two radically different versions of the eventual Galaxy S5 flagship. Is it possible that there will be a Snapdragon version, which will ship with Quad HD (1440x2560 pixels) display, and an Exynos-laden one that will sport "only" а 1080p display? Interestingly enough, the Exynos version is shown to support 4G LTE networks as well.

We don't know how visible will be the difference between a 560ppi QHD screen, and a 420ppi 1080p one, but we'd wager to guess it won't be distinct to the untrained eye That's especially true if the 1440p panel comes with Samsung's alternative "diamond pixel" matrix. Therefore the Koreans might not be taking such big of a risk if they release two different spec sheets, as far as the average user is concerned. The question of why would Samsung eventually do this, remains, though, and it might simply be due to not enough QHD Super AMOLED panels yield. Alternatively, one of the versions might be the rumored dust- and water-resistant S5, but we are just speculating here.

Other than the screen/chipset combo controversy, the rest of the specs seem to once again be 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, and a 16 MP camera. The Galaxy S5 is also reported to feature a swipe fingerprint sensor built into the home key, which will show your print, while scanning, on the phone's display itself. Not much left till Monday, when we'll tell you firsthand what turned out to be true, and what didn't.

Wow no way

The thing is. Some countries only gets the Exynos versions and they will be disappointed. Or maybe this is the cheaper version of S5 that was rumored 1-3 days ago.

Look at the status bar for first 2 screen shots. They are totally different. I would assume atleast one of them is fake, most likely both are fakes.

Sammy will kill Galaxy S5 sales in countries that only get the Exynos version not to mention they will kill thei own exynos brand itself being dependent on only S8 processors for their flagships? Whats the point of having your own sillicon then?

1080p is no slouch, people, and I doubt, to the naked eye, that many can tell the difference...

Obviously these screenshots are fake, why have they even been posted in the first place. They are no doubt from an up and coming nexus or an android with CM rom of some kind.

How are these "obviously" fake? The actual device should be anounced in a few days so lets wait and see if you are correct

I agree, if Samsung does OnScreen buttons then my Note 3 will be my last Sammy purchase

I will stick to my note 3 and wait for the note 4. Seems all flagships this year will be playing catch up to the note 3 in terms of specs. Note 3 is simple futuristic. So glad I got one.

Maybe these 2 versions are the rumored 2 versions: S5 version (1080) and the F (1440 premium version)?
