As per the listing on the site the device is powered by Samsung’s octa-core Exynos 7580 processor coupled along with 2 GB of RAM. It is a 64-bit chip with a total of eight Cortex-A53 cores, clocked at 1.6 GHz and a Mali-T720 GPU. In contrast to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset featured in Galaxy S5. Sporting a 5.1 inch super Amoled full-HD display with a screen resolution of 1080x1920 pixels the Samsung Galaxy Neo 5 measures 142×72.5×8.1mm and weighs145 grams. Android 5.1 is pre-installed.
Almost all the specs otherwise is much similar to Samsung Galaxy S5. The upgrade in the front snapper from 2 MP to a 5MP one is noteworthy. As for the rear camera it still retains the 16 MP. A 2800mAh battery powers up the handset. The device will come in single-SIM as well as dual-SIM variants.
It is indeed too early to jump into any conclusions as Samsung has not yet officially confirmed on the release of this device.
From the spec list available we realized the fact that the 64-bit chip Is functionally slower than the Snapdragon silicon. 6LTE speed is a major game changer as we can expect up to 300 Mbps from the device.
