Samsung Galaxy S5 also comes in 2.1 GHz Octa-Core variant [Updated]


Samsung unveiled the most expected Galaxy S5 smartphone at the MWC 2014 few hours back. The Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900F) is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 801 (MSM8974AC) processor clocked at 2.45 GHz. A new infographic, comparing all the Galaxy S series devices on the Samsung blog reveals that the Galaxy S5 would also come in a Octa-Core variant clocked at 2.1GHz. This might be the Exynos Infinity processor that is expected to be unveiled during the MWC 2014 later this week.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 has a 5.1-inch full HD (1920×1080 pixels) Super AMOLED display and runs on Android 4.4 (KitKat) with new Samsung UI on top. It also has Finger scanner, Heart rate sensor and more unique features. The Galaxy S5 also has LTE Category 4 support.

The chart compares the Korean variants of the Galaxy S Series devices, so it might launch in Korea first. The chart doesn’t mention the model number for the Korean variant of the S5. Since the global roll out begins only in April, the Octa-Core variant might be announced later. The Samsung Galaxy S5 would go on sale globally in 150 countries starting April 11th.

[Update: Samsung has removed the Octa-Core option from the chart on the blog. Now it just shows the Quad-Core variant]
