A supposed image of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom emerged yesterday and showed that the phone is going to be a departure from the old camera-focused Zoom line of Android smartphones. New specs from benchmark tests obtained by a reliable source point to that likely being true.
SamMobile has received screenshots of the phone taken with Antutu Benchmark and discovered that the phone has some decent specifications, including a 6-core Samsung Exynos 5 Hexa that combines two 1.7GHz A15 cores with four 1.3 GHz A7 cores under the ARM big.LITTLE architecture. It also has 2GB of RAM, a microSD slot, and a 4.8-inch display with 720p resolution.
Of course, the key feature here is the camera, and Samsung's made upgrades there as well. The front camera is 2.1-megapixel and the rear lens is a 20.2-megapixel shooter with Optical Image Stabilization, 10x zoom, and Xenon Flash. You can expect Samsung to roll out some software features with new photography options as it does with every major release. Combine that with what appears to be a thinner profile and you can expect that the S5 Zoom will be a better experience than the last model.source: Sam Mobile
