The camera-focused Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom, a variation on the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S5, could feature a 20-megapixel rear camera and a hexa-core processor, according to new benchmarks.

Thanks to details first discovered by Italian site Webtrek.it, we're getting a clearer picture of what to expect in Samsung's image-centric handset.

The model called the SM-C115 appears to run Android 4.4.2 KitKat and feature a 4.8-inch 720p display. Larger than the Galaxy S4 Zoom's 4.3-inch screen, this model may feature 2GB RAM and 8GB internal storage. Also of particular note, the benchmarks list the processor as being Samsung's Exynos 5 Hexa, a six-core chipset.

As for the all-important camera aspect, the Galaxy S5 Zoom could bundle a 20-megapixel rear shooter with a 2-megapixel front-facing lens. We might assume this one will pack all of the photo features found in the standard Galaxy S5, with maybe a little extra to boot.

For all we now know about the upcoming device, plenty remains unclear. Will this year's US model be an AT&T exclusive once again or could it get a wider release? What about price? Stick around, we'll likely find out in short order.
