Galaxy S5

Samsung was rumored to be launching the Galaxy S5 during a pre-MWC event on February 23. And yesterday, Russian leakster Eldar Murtazin mentioned that Samsung might postpone the launch following the leaks of its alleged announcement date. We have confirmation of that coming directly from Samsung now, which has confirmed the February 23 event before the MWC. But that’s where the good news ends. The invitation reads – “During this invite only event, you will get an exclusive sneak preview of the newest Tizen devices as well as an opportunity to learn about the major milestones that the Tizen project has hit since last year’s event“.

So it’s clear that we’ll see a bunch of Samsung Tizen smartphones during the course of the event. This leads us to believe that the Galaxy S5 will be launched in March as originally scheduled. The launch event will most probably take place in London as rumors in the past have indicated. We expect the Galaxy S5 to feature a 5.2 inch QHD resolution display, a 16MP camera, a Snapdragon 800 SoC, 3GB of RAM and Android 4.4 KitKat.
