Samsung SM-G739F appears on benchmark site; phablet carries 5.5 inch screen, mid-range specs
Based on a trip to the GFX benchmark site, Samsung apparently has another phablet besides the upcoming Galaxy Note 4, up its sleeves. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, which will be a top-shelf model all the way, the specs for the Samsung SM-G739F fall quite a bit short of top-shelf territory. The phone does come with a 5.5 inch screen, with resolution of 720 x 1280. Under the hood is a quad-core 1.6GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU with the Adreno 305 GPU handling graphics.

The unnamed model will also carry 1.3GB of RAM and 12GB of native storage. There will be a 7MP snapper on back, with a 2MP camera in front. Both will be capable of shooting 1080 x 1920 video. Android 4.4.4 is pre-installed, out of the box.

Outside of the above specs, not much information is available about the phone, including availability and pricing. But we will keep our eyes peeled, and as soon as we know more, you'll know more.


Thanks for the tip!

Maybe Samsung is following Apples consumer movement. Mid range simple specs, with a great build and good looking aesthetics. It works for Apple, and it could work for Samsung if it's done right. Looking forward to their future of design. They're starting to get the hint and they have more than enough potential to adopt and execute a newer better design path.

Do you really believe that PA and other tech media(and other iboys) are really so concerned to help Samsung with those suggestions about "premium aluminium tin can"??? So to help Samsung to smash Apple. LOL This "premium aluminium" BS shtick , is meant ONLY to show "the supremacy" of their iPhone crap , AND NOTHING ELSE.

The LG Vista is a great phone, yes. Samsung's mid-range phones, not so much. Samsung's midrangers are not bad and I am not bashing Samsung (so don't go crazy and call me "iBoy"). More that Samsung really doesn't put much effort into "niceness" anymore and now has a penchant for locking up their phones, so customers cannot easily root them.

Even the Note 3 with FHD on 5.7" has pixelization. Some of this is AMOLED pentile, but some of it is dropping below 400ppi.

If Qualcomm weren't a fat lazy company, yes, we could move to 64-bit. But Qualcomm has shown us that they basically did some work a while back on Krait and then stopped working and went into profit maximization mode. So evolution of the most popular Android processors/SoCs basically stopped.

It has been Google the whole time. Why should Qualcomm make a 64-bit chip if no 64bit OS is available?

"It has been Google the whole time. Why should Qualcomm make a 64-bit chip if no 64bit OS is available?" Qualcomm could have worked hard like Intel, utilized the OPEN SOURCE OS known as Android, and done the work to make a 64-bit version of it for their chips. But they didn't. Why? Because they didn't think to make any 64-bit chips, as Qualcomm has admitted. I might also observe that you are wasting your obvious intelligence with this axe grinding regarding 64-bit Android. Yes, Apple was first to 64-bit and the road for Android will obviously be longer than with Apple. But it's not a weakness or a problem or something to attack Android for. Rather, it's part of how a diverse community works.

Exactly !! .. why are they still bringing the old SoCs ?? .. Snapdragon 400 should be kept out now .. 410 should be on priority for such spec smartphones ..

Yep the parts that got to me is = 1.3Gb of RAM and 12GB of native storage, like wth is up with those? I've been railing against the insufficiency of 8Gb models from ALL OEMs expecting a better 16Gb minimum then this joke of a number pops up AND it's either 1.5 not 1.3Gb RAM or gtfo. Also I'm with @Anshulonweb up there, enough with these SD400 models already...
