Rumor has it that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be released sooner than the company’s usual March launch. As a sequel and the next flagship, it naturally must win people over with exciting, new features. Here’s what some reports are suggesting.

  • The Samsung Galaxy S5 will sport a 2K display (quad HD/1,440×2,560), along with an eye scanner a la this iPhone 6 concept design.
  • Like in previous high-end devices, plastic will still be the body material. Samsung, however, does plan to release a premium version with a metal case.
  • Following Apple’s move to 64-bit processing, a 64-bit octa-core Exynos processor will power the device.
  • Android 4.4 KitKat will come preinstalled.
  • The Samsung Galaxy S5 won’t match other phones for camera resolution; its rear shooter will only have a 16MP sensor. On the plus side, it will have enhanced optical image stabilization and better low-light photo quality.

Of course, these are just reports and rumors. As always, take them with a grain of salt.

  1. I was about to get the Note 3 two days ago but this news intrigued me, I don’t want to experience that dreaded buyer’s remorse so I decided to hold on, wait mode na lang at tiis – tiis muna sa Note 2 ko . Specs look compelling enough (at least on paper). I really could care less about the ‘gimmicky’ screen resolution, just give me a faster hardware, the most recent Android and a better camera with OiS, I’m good to go. Of course the battery life should not disappoint.
