Samsung SM-G900S with a similar Quad HD display appeared on GFXBench back in December 2013, but Samsung did not release the phone. The SM-G900S had a Snapdragon 800 processor, but the SM-G906S would have a 2.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor with Adreno 420 GPU. It runs on Android 4.4.2 (KitKat).

The Samsung Galaxy S5 would go on sale in India and several countries starting from next week. Samsung is also rumored to release the Galaxy S5 Active, S5 Mini and the S5 Zoom, similar to the S4 variants.
