One of the most talked about Android devices this year that hasn’t even been released yet is the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5. All over the Internet there are a lot of rumors, speculations, and other bits and pieces of information regarding this device that’s being spread.
The latest update regarding the Samsung Galaxy S5 is that the SM-G900A is going to be the AT&T version of the device. Information about this version that is shown on Samsung’s mobile website indicates that it will have a resolution of 1080×1920 pixels making it have a 1080p display. This clearly contradicts what we previously know about its display which is confirmed to be qHD (2,560×1,440).
There are various explanations to this. First, the listed information regarding the SM-G900A might not be a Galaxy S5 model after all but instead that of the Galaxy F which is based on the Galaxy S4. Second, the SM-G900A might indeed be a Galaxy S5 model but then it is the plastic version and not the metal version. This will then mean that the plastic version will not be getting a 2K display but instead stick with a 1080p display. Third, this could be an early prototype build that uses a 1080p display but will later be upgraded to 2K.
Here’s a specs rundown of the S5
- Android 4.4 KitKat
- QHD (2,560×1,440) Super AMOLED display
- Exynos 6 / Snapdragon 805 processor
- 16-megapixel camera
- Plastic/metal versions
At this point in time nothing is really certain unless Samsung makes any official announcement. We might have to wait a couple of months for any information coming from the company as a senior Samsung official confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will not be unveiled at MWC 2014.
As the launch date nears we will be getting additional information about this device however as of now it’s best to take everything with a grain of salt.
