Samsung Galaxy S5 may not be world's first phone with 4GB of RAM after all

Samsung Galaxy S5 may not be world's first phone with 4GB of RAM after all

16MP camera still looking good though

The Samsung Galaxy S5 is somewhere in the pipeline - that we're sure of - and may have just popped up over on Antutu's database to flaunt some of its new specs.
The device is listed at the SM-G900F which is the same model number we saw a few days ago in another possible S5 benchmark spot.
Like last time, the mystery phone has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor in the MSM8974AC variant, along with 32GB of internal storage. But this device has just 3GB of RAM which disagrees with previous 4GB rumours.
Also disappointing, if true, is the 1920 x 1080 screen resolution which doesn't hit the QHD level we were hoping for. Although as G4Games points out, this could just be a prototype that's locked to 1080p for testing purposes.
However we're pleased to see that the 16MP camera has appeared again, remaining consistent with rumours, and according to these details we'll be getting a 2MP front-facing snapper too.

Disappointing?

Don't take any of this as read – it could turn out that this mysterious G900F is a different Samsung device entirely. Nonetheless, Antutu is sure that we're looking at the international version of the S5 in some shape or form.
Evleaks has been pitching in on the S5 rumours too, tweeting that the S5 is undergoing testing at AT&T HQ right now.
"AT&T is testing a version of that high-res Samsung handset (SM-G900A), giving some support to the theory that it's an int'l flagship (GS5?)"
That model number is slightly different, mind, and could well be the carrier version of the S5.
