The Samsung Galaxy S5 should in all likelihood break cover at next week’s Unpacked 5 event in Barcelona. And as we head closer to the official announcement, a new image has cropped up on image sharing site Flickr, which is believed to be taken from the AT&T variant of the smartphone.
These details were pulled from the Exif data of the image which also specifies the model number of the smartphone – SM-G900A. The image resolution is 5312 x 2988 with a 16:9 aspect ratio. However, the image shown here appears to be cropped from the original picture and it’s very unlikely that Samsung would use a widescreen camera sensor. So it’s fair to assume that the image would actually be 5312 x 3984 under 4:3 aspect ratio, which effectively means it will carry a camera sensor of 20 or 21 megapixels.
So what does this tell us? Well, it is clear that Samsung wants its flagship to go a notch ahead of Sony which currently leads the Android pack with its 20.7MP sensor on the Xperia Z1 as well as the yet to be announced Xperia Z2/Sirius. A recent leak from Samsung confirmed that the manufacturer will use a 20MP camera for the upcoming flagship, so this leak is very legitimate.
