Samsung Galaxy S5 specs appear online with Quad HD display

GFXBench reveals possible Samsung Galaxy S5 specifications

A set of possible Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphones specifications have appeared online.

Rumours surrounding the Galaxy S5 are ramping up as 2014 draws closer, with an impressive set of hardware specs appearing on GFXBench website, according to Fonearena. Results for the Samsung SM-G900S, which could well be the Galaxy S5, were spotted.

The mystery device was benchmarked and the results listed a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and Adreno 330 GPU. This is common in top-end smartphones but we've not seen one clocked at 2.5GHz. However, that doesn't match up with news that Samsung would go 64-bit for the S5 to keep up with the iPhone 5S.

The SM-G900S, similar to the Galaxy Round's product code of SM-G910S, has a whopping 2560 x 1440 display. That matches the Quad HD resolution of a 5.5in screen which LG announced earlier this year. The device is also running on the latest Android 4.4 KitKat.

Samsung is unlikely to use Korean rival LG for displays so based on a rumour that the firm would launch a 560ppi SuperAMOLED phone in 2014, the possible GS5 will have a 5.25in screen.

Whether or not this turns out to be the Galaxy S5 or not remains to be seen. Samsung is reportedly planning to launch four or five smartphones early in 2014 so you can bet the GS5 will match or better these specs.

Etnews reports that the Galaxy Grand 2 will arrive on 20 January, with an entry-level Galaxy Note 3 Lite following in February. The Galaxy S5' release date is expected to be a little ahead of schedule. There's also a possibility of the Galaxy Gear 2.

We're sure that Samsung will announce more at both CES in January and MWC in February so stay tuned for all the latest.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
