South Korean tech giant Samsung has been creating wonders with the Android OS in terms of smartphones, tablets and phablets. Over the past few years, Samsung with its breath-taking range of devices as been able to surpass the Cupertino tech titan Apple and become the world's largest smartphone vendor.
It seems like Samsung is not a company that would relax with the achieved laurels as it is prepping a wide range of handsets in 2013 to retain its position. Recently, the leaked benchmark filings revealed eight devices including GT-B9150. But the company is planning for more devices this year.
According to a recent benchmark discovery, five more Samsung devices have been spotted including Galaxy Fonblet 5.8, Galaxy Pocket 2, Galaxy Star, Galaxy Young, Galaxy Frame and a device with the model number GT-I9150.
A few names from the list might be familiar as they were circulating in rumor mills lately. However, the leaked benchmark results have confirmed their existence unofficially before Samsung could unwrap them. Hence, these benchmarks serve to offer some credence to the ongoing rumors.
It is important to mention that along with the names of the upcoming devices, some of their key features and specifications have also been revealed by the benchmark tests. Below are the rumored devices and their respective specs.
According to a SamMobile report, Galaxy Fonblet 5.8 with the model numberGT-I9150 / GT-I9152 will have a 5.8 inch display with a qHD resolution of 960 x 540 pixels, 1.2GHz Broadcom BCM28155 processor, VideoCore IV GPU and run on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.

Meanwhile, another device spotted in the benchmark tests - Galaxy Pocket 2, which has the model number GT-S5310 / GT-S5312 will pack a 320 x 240 pixel display, a 850MHz Broadcom processor, VideoCore IV GPU, and run on Android 4.1.2 operating system. From these specs, it seems that this handset is aimed at the low-end market segment.
However, Galaxy Pocket 2 may not be the only one aimed at the low end smartphone market segment, as Galaxy Star also known as the GT-S5282 seems to be targeted towards the same. This device packs a VGA display with a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels. Under the hood, it features a Spreadtrum processor, Mali-300 GPU, and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean as its operating system.
