More Samsung Galaxy S5 specs reportedly confirmed – Galaxy S5 Mini and Galaxy S Zoom to be unveiled after
According to a report, it has confirmed most of the specs as well as the price tag of the Samsung Galaxy S5. The same report says that the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini and the Samsung Galaxy S Zoom will be officially unveiled soon after the unveiling of the Korean tech giant’s next flagship.
The report comes from reliable Samsung insider, SamMobile. Speaking about the S5’s price, it says, “It will come in both metal and plastic versions as has been rumored, with the metal version costing around 800 Euros and the plastic model coming in at around 650 Euros.”
It notes, “Samsung will be pushing people towards buying the much-anticipated metallic model – we weren’t given more details, but if a recent rumor is to be believed, the phone will basically have just a metallic back plate while being constructed of metal on the sides and front.”
Speaking about specs, it says, “the Galaxy S5 will sport an AMOLED display of 2,560×1,440 resolution; we were unable to confirm the size, though it should be around 5.25-inches as has been rumored often. The back of the phone will sport a 16-megapixel camera, though it’s unclear if it will have hardware optical image stabilization (OIS). Underneath, the Galaxy S5 will either be powered by the Exynos 6 processor or a Snapdragon 805, depending on whether it’s LTE-enabled or not. On the software front, the S5 will run on Android 4.4 KitKat.”
Octa-core or quad-core? It says, “While the Exynos 6 CPU was expected – which will likely be capable of operating all eight cores simultaneously – to power the handset, it’s only just been confirmed that the S5 will become one of the first smartphones to sport the Snapdragon 805 CPU, which should offer considerably higher performance than the Snapdragon 800 in the Galaxy Note 3, especially in the graphics department. It’s unclear what factors will decide what processor Samsung uses on which model – the metal version will likely have 64-bit support with the Exynos 6 processor, while the plastic model could be powered by the Snapdragon CPU (we’ve been told that LTE isn’t an issue for the Exynos CPU anymore, so we could see a change in tradition and find the plastic version of the phone with only the Snapdragon CPU in every country.)”
Samsung is expected to officially unveil the Galaxy S5 in the UK in March and release it in April.
Speaking about the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini and the Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom, it says, “Samsung will be launching the Galaxy S5 mini and Galaxy S5 Zoom sometime after the Galaxy S5, with an official unveiling taking place sometime in June and May respectively. Both devices will have a Super AMOLED display (4.8-inch on the Galaxy S4 Zoom, of qHD resolution) and run on Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box.”
Of course, since Samsung is yet to confirm any of these reports, take these with a pinch of salt.
