Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie Samsung Smartphone Spotted In Benchmarks, Is It The Galaxy Nexus 2?

GT-I9525

Samsung is one of the mobile terminal makers that is very active on the segment, already having an impressive portfolio of devices launched this year. The winter holidays are approaching fast and the month of December always boosts the sales courtesy of the customers hunting for Christmas presents. Samsung is already a strong presence in the winter holidays time-frame, with Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2, but the South Korea-based company seems like it wants to prepare the ground for next year, as well.

Not every customer wants to purchase the smartphone that has the biggest display and the most powerful hardware configuration and Samsung knows that very well, as their mid-end and low-end terminals generated impressive earnings for the company.

Anyway, two new Samsung terminals have been spotted in NenaMark2 benchmark tests. We are talking about GT-I9400, a mid-end smartphone, powered by a dual-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz and Mali 400MP GPU. The display resolution of the 4-inch display is expected to be of 480 x 800 pixels. The terminal is running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

The second smartphone spotted in NenaMark2 benchmark tests is also the most interesting one. Codenamed GT-I9525, the terminal is powered by a processor clocked at 1.8 GHz (most likely a dual-core unit), Mali 400MP GPU and HD display with a resolution of 1,280 x 720. What stroke me as unusual is that the benchmark lists it as running Android 5.0, the new version of Google’s mobile operating system, expected to arrive next year. For this particular reason we tend to believe that we might be looking at the next-gen Google dev phone, Galaxy Nexus 2.

Other details regarding the price and the availability of the two smartphones are still a mystery.
