It has been a rumor for quite awhile now that Samsung is looking to rebrand its flagship, the Galaxy S5 this year. The South Korean tech giant has allegedly been working on an updated and improved version of the Galaxy S5 and the rumor mill says that it might just have gotten its Wi-Fi certification.
A gadget with model number SM-G903F just received certification for its Wi-Fi on 6th July! We know for a fact, it’s a smartphone that will operate on 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz Wi-Fi bands as well as 802.11ac Wi-Fi. It seems that according to the model number, we’re looking at a match up with the Galaxy S5 Neo, which is the rumored name of the rebranded Galaxy S5.
Specs wise – we’re looking at a 5.1 inch Full HD 1080p Super AMOLED display that has 2GB worth of RAM and 16 GB worth of internal storage. On its back, sits a 16 megapixel camera and the phone will be powered by a 2800 mAh battery. So far, this is the exact replica of the 2014 Galaxy S5.
However, the S5 Neo will be running on a 64-bit octa-core Exynos 7580 processor and sport a 5 megapixel front shooter. Out of the box, the device will run on Android 5.1 Lollipop and have single SIM and dual SIM variants. Wi-Fi wise, the new gadget will be getting LTE-Advanced (or LTE-A) connectivity which is an upgrade from the basic LTE connectivity it once had.
As of now, the S5 Neo seems to already be ready for pre-order in certain countries including Czech Republic. According to sources, it is retailing for USD$490 (MYR1858).
