Samsung Galaxy S5 prototype benchmarked

Samsung's upcoming flagship, the Galaxy S5, has allegedly leaked through the popular Android benchmark AnTuTu. The system information indicates the presence of a 16 MP primary shooter and a Snapdragon 800 chipset with a 2.5GHz Krait CPU.

What is missing, however, are most of the sensors that are expected to be present in the upcoming flagship. Also, a lot of the cool rumored features we've been hearing about are also absent. This indicates that this is likely an engineering device given to carriers prior to release for testing purposes.

Such devices usually come with unfinalized hardware both internally and externally, and as such shouldn't be used to evaluate the actual expected performance of the Galaxy S5 upon release.

Speaking of release, Samsung has announced its next Unpacked event will take place MWC 2014 later this month. Ominously titled "Unpacked 5", there's a good chance we'll see something flagship-esque get announced there.

What's the use of these benchmarks when Samsung make their processors tweaked only for benchmarks.
