Going back several months now, we’ve been anticipating a new family member for Samsung’s Galaxy S5 lineup: the Galaxy S5 Neo. Rumors bounced around between a few possible model numbers, seeming to settle last month on Samsung’s model SM-G903F. Possible specs we heard attached to the phone made it sound like a pretty solid offering, with components like a 5.1-inch 1080p display and a 64-bit Samsung Exynos SoC. While we still haven’t seen Samsung officially welcome the Galaxy S5 Neo, one retailer may have already jumped the gun, posting a listing for the smartphone.
Dutch site Belsimpel.nl has page up for the Galaxy S5 Neo G903F. Listed specs largely mirror the original Galaxy S5 – even the imagery the retailer uses appears to be old GS5 renders – but there’s at least one tell-tale detail here that establishes this as a new phone: the presence of that Exynos 7580 SoC. And while that aligns with earlier rumors, not all details do, like how this listing shows the GS5 Neo sporting a 2MP front-facing camera like the original GS5, while we heard an upgrade to a 5MP shooter was supposed to be present.
Pricing for the Galaxy S5 Neo is given as about 430 EUR (or roughly $470). That’s essentially the very same price the retailer is asking for the Galaxy S5 proper – the Snapdragon 801 version. The smartphone appears to be available in black, gold, and silver.
While that looks like the complete picture on this guy, we’re still just the slightest bit wary of what we’re seeing here, and would love to pick up some more formal confirmation; the ball’s in your court, Samsung.
