Two New Samsung handsets in the Pipeline

Samsung has two new phones coming soon!

Good news for Samsung fans, as two brand new handsets are reportedly being developed by the South Korean company, if an internet leak is to be confirmed.

The leak, courtesy of GFXBench, shows two separate smartphones being developed by Samsung, each with varying spec sheets.

The first handset is offering a low to mid-range collection of components, whilst the second is looking like a high-end handset which could be classified as the widely rumoured S5 Neo.

The less powerful handset listed in the leak reportedly offers a 5” 540x960 display, meaning the image quality will be sketchy to say the least.

A quad-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB RAM and 8GB internal memory also finds its way into the less powerful handset, but one noticeable inclusion is the first 64-bit Qualcomm chipset, the Snapdragon 410.

Android KitKat will be featured on the smartphone, with an 8 megapixel lens on the back coupling a 2mp selfie snapper on the front.

The more powerful handset of the two is set to boast a 4.7” 720p display, far better than its companion and also offers more improved specs behind the screen.

Does this leak look legitimate to you?

A quad-core 2.45GHz processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB internal memory fill out the internal components, whilst a 13 megapixel lens on the back is joined by a 2 megapixel secondary lens.

Android KitKat is also confirmed to work right out of the box, which could mean both handsets may be making an appearance before Android ‘L’, the next version of Google’s OS, which is still in development.

As mentioned previously, the more powerful handset looks like it could well be the Galaxy S5 Neo, which has been whispered about for a while now.

It would face direct competition with the likes of the HTC One Mini 2 and the possible Sony Xperia Z3, basically making it an S5 Mini with an improved spec list.

Unfortunately this leak only details specifications, so we haven’t seen any pictures or actual proof that the handsets exist, so take this information with a healthy pinch of salt for now.

Similarly, pricing details for both handsets are still being completely concealed by Samsung, but you can expect some fairly competitive costs if we were to hazard a guess.

Also, thanks to these details getting leaked now, it means that we could well be seeing both handsets make an appearance at IFA in Berlin this September, alongside the possible emergence of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

With under two months to go until the event, don’t be surprised to hear about more possible handsets rearing their collective heads either, as manufacturers look to take full advantage of the event in Germany.

For now though, we’re afraid you’re just going to have to sit and wait until more information makes its way onto the web, where we’ll be sure to let you know about any developments.

So, what are your thoughts on these two mystery Samsung smartphones? Could they be heading to IFA? Let us know your thoughts on Facebook, Twitter or Google+.
