The leaks and rumours dealing with Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo have been existing since last year. From the recent revelations, we already have an idea of what the smartphone might feature. However, this time a more credible source of information has been spotted on the Web, giving us the approximate price of the handset and almost confirming its specifications. The Galaxy S5 flagship variant has been listed for pre-orders on an e-commerce website.
As per the listing on Belsimpel, a Dutch e-commerce website, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo (SM-G903F) is priced at EUR 429 (roughly Rs. 30,000), and will start shipping by the end of next month. From the looks of it, the device shares a similar design profile with that Samsung's last year flagship, Galaxy S5. However, the specifications seen are slightly different.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo, according to the listing, runs on Samsung's octa-core Exynos 7580 processor instead of the Galaxy S5's Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC (the non-LTE version launched in India ran on the Exynos Octa 5420). Another change is seen in the modem section, where the Galaxy S5 Neo is advertised to support Cat.6 LTE speeds of up to 300Mbps. In addition, the front-facing camera has also been bumped up from 2.1-megapixel to 5-megapixels.
Other specifications however, stay the same. The handset houses 5.1-inch Super Amoled full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) resolution display, 2GB of RAM, even the measurement and the weight - 142×72.5×8.1mm and 145 grams is the same as the Galaxy S5. However, since we are yet to see Samsung officially launching the smartphone, nothing can be said as confirmed. The South Korean smartphone maker is also said to be working on Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and Galaxy Note 5, expected to launch at the August 13 Galaxy Unpacked 2015 event.
