Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo (SM-G903F) with Exynos 7580 shows up on Geekbench website
An unofficial Samsung handset codenamed SM-G903F has just been spotted in the Geekbench database. This is not the first time we've heard of this new Samsung phone, as the same device was spotted getting its Wi-Fi certifications a few days ago. The handset is said to be the often-rumored Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo.
If rumors are to be believed, Samsung has been exploring the possibility of a Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo since last spring. Although the manufacturer publicly admitted that it's trying to limit the number of smartphone models that it launches, the avalanche of recent Samsung smartphones seems to contradict these statements. It's in this context that we'd like to introduce the latest major discovery in the Geekbench database.
According to the Geekbench listing, the SM-G903F Galaxy S5 Neo will come with a Samsung-made Exynos 7580 chip. Again, this is not the first time that we've heard of the currently unavailable chip from Samsung. A couple of older discoveries suggested that the Exynos 7580 will come with a 1.6GHz octa-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor, and the recent Geekbench listing apparently confirms these details. Other Galaxy S5 Neo specs that this benchmark seems to reveal include 2GB of RAM, and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.
When it comes to the performance, Geekbench reveals that the Exynos 7580 is faster than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 (a chip that also integrates eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores) in both single-core and multi-core tests. In fact, the scores place the Exynos 7580 somewhere between the Snapdragon 615 and the Snapdragon 801, the chip that Samsung used on the original Galaxy S5. Unfortunately, there's no way to verify the validity of this score, meaning that we'll need more data before drawing a conclusion on the upcoming Exynos 7580 chip.
