Guess what? There’s news circulating about another Samsung Galaxy variant, this time for the Neo line. In the past this is the series of devices targeted at folks who want to save a buck. As reported on SamMobile, the Galaxy S5 Neo will be a cut-down version of last year’s Galaxy S5.
This isn’t the first time Samsung has created a budget variant of their flagship. We’ve seen a Galaxy Note 3 Neo before, which was slightly smaller and had a lower resolution than its high-end counterpart.
An interesting tidbit with the new Galaxy S5 Neo is that it’s said to rock the new octa-core Exynos 7580 SoC that was recently leaked through GFXBench. This further implies that the Exynos 7580 is a mid-range chipset, competing with the likes of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615.
Current known specs of the Galaxy S5 Neo include:
- 5.1″ 1080P Super-AMOLED Display
- Samsung Exynos 7580 (octa-core, 64-bit, Mali-T720 GPU) SoC
- 2GB RAM
- 16 MP rear and 5 MP front cameras
- 2,800 mAh battery
- Android 5.1
There is no release date or pricing just yet, stay tuned for an official announcement from Samsung.
