Entry-level Samsung Galaxy O5 has partial list of specs revealed on GFXBench

Last month, we told you about the SM-G600, which is supposedly the Samsung Galaxy O7. There has been talk that this phone is a VR-centric device that is the result of a partnership between Samsung and Oculus. The latter is holding its Connect2 event starting on Wednesday, September 23rd, and there is speculation that the new Galaxy O line will be introduced at that time.

Besides the Galaxy O7, there is also reportedly a device with the model number SM-G550 called the Samsung Galaxy O5. A handset sporting that model number happened to make it through the GFXBench benchmark test, revealing entry-level specs. We're talking about a device with a 5-inch screen, carrying a 720 x 1280 resolution. The Exynos 3475 SoC is under the hood, featuring a quad-core 1.3GHz CPU, and the Mali-T720 GPU. 1GB of RAM is inside, along with 8GB of internal storage (4.5GB available to the user). The camera combo on the phone appears to be (back to front) 8MP/5MP, and the phone will not come with NFC. It will come, however, with Android 5.1.1 out of the box.

The Samsung Galaxy O7 was benchmarked by AnTuTu last month, revealing that a Snapdragon 410 is under the hood. That means there is a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 306 GPU inside the device, along with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of native storage. A 13MP camera adorns the back, and a 5MP snapper graces the front of the unit. Android 5.1.1 is installed.

If the Galaxy O line has something to do with Oculus, we should know before this week is out. Stay tuned!

Thanks for the tip!
