KOREAN PHONE MAKER Samsung's Galaxy S5 has appeared in leaked benchmark results that seem to confirm that it will launch in two versions.

Speculation has suggested that Samsung will launch two Galaxy S5 models - a premium, metal-clad version and a cheaper plastic model, much like Apple did with the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S.

Benchmark results nabbed by Sammobile seemingly confirm this, with two Samsung Galaxy S5 variants appearing on the Antutu database over the weekend, listed as the SM-G900R4 and SM-G900H.

According to the listing, the Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900R4 is the premium model, and this will have a quad-core 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, despite previous speculation that it would feature a Samsung octa-core Exynos 6 chip. The quad-core chip had an Antutu score of 31,843, which while good falls below the 34,949 score achieved by the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact during our recent review.

The standard Samsung Galaxy S5 reportedly will feature an octa-core Samsung Exynos chip, which likely means that it will arrive without LTE support. This shows it performed better on Antutu than its premium counterpart, however, with a score of 35,445.

That's not all the Antutu listing has revealed. It also 'confirms' that both models will arrive running Google's Android 4.4 Kitkat mobile operating system and will feature 16MP rear-facing cameras. The premium model, according to the listing, will also boast 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a 2560x1140 resolution display, while the cheaper model will feature 16GB of internal storage and a 1920x1080 resolution display.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 likely will be announced at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on 24 February, and we'll be there to bring you all the latest.
