Samsung reportedly preparing to launch the Galaxy S5 Neo

According to SamMobile, the Galaxy S5 Neo will come with a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display (1080p), 16GB of internal storage, 2GB RAM, 16-MP rear shooter, and a 2,800mAh battery to power everything. It's almost identical to the original Galaxy S5, aside from the processor, front-facing camera and network connectivity.

Samsung has opted to include a 64-bit octa-core Exynos 7580 processor, 5-MP front-facing selfie machine and will arrive as both single- and dual-SIM variants. Both versions are expected to arrive with Android 5.1 Lollipop installed. While the Galaxy S5 Neo is a less powerful version of the Galaxy S5, according to the report, it may prove a popular purchase for those who don't require a flagship handset.

No details were provided for availability or pricing. As with any rumor, we'll recommend you take these specifications with a grain of salt.
