It will also come with a quad-core Snapdragon 800 chipset clocked at 2.5GHz. This is the same processor used in other high-end devices such as the Galaxy Note 3, Nexus 5, Sony Xperia Z1 and LG G2.

The Galaxy S5 scored a 35666 an the AnTuTu test, which is higher than the scores set by all of those other smartphones. The benchmark screenshots can be seen here.

The Galaxy S5 is rumored to be unveiled at Samsung's 'Unpacked' event set to take place later this month on Feb. 24. The New York Times is reporting that the S5 will launch there and that it will be unveiled alongside the Galaxy Gear 2 smart watch. The event will be a bit less flashy than the Galaxy S4's unveiling, according to those familiar with the matter.

The Times also confirmed that the device would feature a 16-megapixel camera and would not have the rumored iris scanner on board. This report is in line with a previous one that quoted words from Samsung's VP who said the S5 will be a "back to basics" device.

The first picture taken with this camera might have been leaked last week. @evleaks posted up a photo of what could be the first sample image taken with the Galaxy S5. It doesn't reveal anything about the S5's camera quality, but it does confirm that the device will feature a 16-megapixel sensor which jives with many recent reports.

The image was shared from the Flipboard news and social curation app by a user known as @123fliptest around three weeks ago. There is also EXIF data on the photo that reveals the resolution of the original file which was 5,312 x 2,988 which makes it around 16-megapixels.
