Starting with the SM-G5308W, the phone is listed as having the Snapdragon 410 CPU, a 64-bit chip that was also discovered powering another Samsung handset recently with rather similar overall specs. To be precise, this one comes with a 5-inch screen with a 540 x 960 qHD resolution. A 64-bit, 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 CPU coupled with 1GB of RAM and most likely 8GB of native storage inside. The rear-facing camera is 8MP, while there is a 2MP front-facing camera.


What is interesting about the other model i.e. the SM-G8508S is that this particular device has a 4.7-inch 720p display and a quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 800 processor along with 2GB of RAM, hinting at a flagship-level device. This one could be a rival against the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact. Back and front-facing cameras should be 13MP and 2MP respectively. If you are not aware, a similar handset called by the model number SM-G750A - had shown up earlier this year but until now it has not appeared online after that leak.

Both these smartphones run on Android 4.4.4 and features NFC connectivity as well.

Some tech sites are of the opinion of the devices just being exclusive to the Chinese and the Korean market. However, we are not sure whether these will make it to other markets or not.

As of now no details on the pricing of these devices have come up to our notice. There are speculations that suggest the smartphones will be unveiled in September at the IFA 2014 show in Berlin.
