Samsung Galaxy Mega Plus specs emerge in AnTuTu benchmark leak

Compared to the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 with Broadcom chipset, the Galaxy Mega Plus will perform 40% better thanks to its 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor.

The Samsung Galaxy Mega Plus has been benchmarked at AnTuTu, and test results show the recently leaked phone is 40% faster than its predecessor, the Galaxy Mega 5.8.

In this rehash, Samsung replaces the processor with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, so no more MediaTek chipset as some have previously rumored. Unfortunately most of the other specs will remain the same.

You still have the 5.8-inch screen with the disappointing 540×960 resolution and TFT technology, Adreno 305 GPU, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB internal memory (expandable via mcro SD), the same 8 megapixel rear camera and 1.9 megapixel front-facing camera, and the same 2600 mAh battery.

The unit benchmarked at AnTuTu was running Android 4.3, but hopefully Samsung will manage to make it run Android 4.4 KitKat before the phone is officially released.

Compared to the Mega 5.8 with Broadcom chipset, the Galaxy Mega Plus will perform 40% better thanks to its Qualcomm Soc. Overall, the phone scores 17,049 points in AnTuTu as opposed to 12,075, and it performs very similar to the Motorola Moto G, as the benchmark data shows.

One other major change in the Galaxy Mega Plus is the addition of dual SIM support, which is perfect for the Chinese market where the smartphone is currently set to launch. There is no word yet from Samsung on if the Smartphone will be available anywhere else.
