A fresh list of Samsung Galaxy S5 specs made its way online today. The list comes from Russian tech blogger Eldar Murzatin.
Murzatin says that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will feature a 5.24-inch display with a Quad HD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels.
This mind-blowing resolution, if correct, could make the 2014 Samsung flagship smartphone the first Quad HD smartphone, at least in the Western hemisphere.
Previously, China-based company Vivo already beat Samsung into securing the title, when it launched the Vivo Xplay 3S.
Back to the S5, the device also said to have a 560ppi pixel density, becoming the first handset in the world to have a pixel density over 500ppi.
The list also mentions a 3200 mAh battery, 3GB of RAM, a 3.2 MP front camera and a 16 MPrear camera. The latter, it is worth pointing out, is in line with the rumors of a 16 MP ISOCELL camera, which surfaced as early as November last year.
Internally, the Galaxy S5 may pack an Exynos 6 (series) or Snapdragon 805 processor. Whether these processors would be found on two variants of the device, or on all Galaxy S5 smartphones, however, was not clarified by Murzatin.
It is expected, however, that the international variant of the Galaxy S5 will have the Snapdragon chip, while the other will have the Exynos 6 processor.
There is no word on whether the device will have a microSD card slot, although this has been previously mentioned.
Murzatin furthermore says that a 32GB and a 64GB model will be available. There may, however, be no 16GB model.
Separate rumors suggest that the Galaxy S5 may have the new TouchWiz interface. Other possibilities include a curved display, a fingerprint scanner, and Android KitKat 4.4. There have been talks of a Prime and a Standard variant of the device, as well.
Earlier today, Samsung’s invitation for an Unpacked event happening on February 24th fuelled speculations that the Galaxy S5 may be unveiled in said gathering.
It is believed that the Galaxy S5 will break cover on said date alongside another device called the S Band.
