A mystery Samsung handset codenamed SM-G903F just paid a visit to Geekbench. It certainly is not the first time we’ve come across this codename as the same device checked in at Wi-Fi certifications a couple of days ago and rumors say it’s the Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo.
If the rumor mill is true, despite explicitly stating that it wants to limit its handsets catalog it seems Samsung has been working on the Galaxy S5 Neo since last spring. Though this is a contradiction to its public statement, the recent launch of multiple devices is a sign that the Galaxy S5 Neo might as well be in the works.
The Geekbench test for the SM-G903F tells us that the device comes with a Samsung-manufactured Exynos 7580 chip. Like the phone itself, the chip too has appeared in the news before and our archives tell us that the Exynos 7580 is combined with a 1.5GHz octa-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor and the Geekbench listing confirms this. Other specifications revealed include 2GB ram and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.
Moving further, let’s dissect the Exynos 7580 a bit. Geekbench shows it’s faster in both single-core and multi-core tests with respect to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 (that also combines eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores). Considering it’s scores, the Exynos 7580 ranks somewhere between the Snapdragon 615 and Snapdragon 801– the chip used on the Samsung Galaxy S5.
We can’t as yet verify the scores and certainly more information is required before we form our opinions about the device!
