Samsung working on Galaxy S5 Neo with an Exynos chipset

Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo

According to a new report, Samsung is currently busy working on a new midrange handset dubbed the Galaxy S5 Neo, sporting the octa core Exynos 7580 SoC. This could be the company’s attempt to reboot its midrange lineup, leveraging the name of last year’s flagship.

As most of the world probably knows by now, the Samsung Galaxy S5 wasn’t exactly a smash hit as fas as sales were concerned, which made the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge all the more important for the company. It is now to be seen if this Galaxy S5 Neo will be able to make any noise in global markets when it is released.

In addition to sporting the aforementioned 64-bit SoC, the smartphone is also said to be packing a 5.1 inch 1080p display, 16GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel camera on the back, a 5-megapixel front camera, Android 5.1 Lollipop and a 2,800 mAh battery pack.

It is said that the company will only release the smartphone in a handful of markets such as China, India and Russia, so North American markets might not see the device right away.
