galaxy s5 announced

Although all eyes were on Samsung’s Unpacked Event yesterday, most of us missed the fact that there was no announcement of an Exynos powered version of the Galaxy S5. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist though. Besides the 2.5GHz Snapdragon 800 version, Galaxy S5 will also come in an octa core Exynos powered version clocked at 2.1GHz. The phone will probably hit select markets similar to the Galaxy S4 Exynos version. We’re not sure if all the eight cores can function simultaneously, or if they work in a batch of four. If we’re not wrong, the performance shouldn’t be all that different from the Snapdragon version.

Meanwhile, Samsung has also announced that the company has sold over 200 million smartphones in the Galaxy S series. The news was broken by the company CEO JK Shin. The last time we checked, Galaxy S4 had already crossed the 40 million mark in fall last year, so we’re assuming more recent models to have a higher contribution to that number.
