The latest leak from South Korean securities KDB Daewoo reveals most of the specs on the next generation smartphone, which looks to be Samsung’s biggest Android flagship yet.
According to the leak, the Galaxy S5 will come with either the 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 or the 2.0GHz octa-core Exynos 6, depending on the region, alongside 3GB of RAM.
The Exynos 6 is one of the first Android processors that have 64bit architecture, similar to the A7 chipset on the iPhone 5S. Samsung will mainly look to add the Exynos 6 processor in Asia and European countries, the Snapdragon 805 will be in the U.S.
Samsung will be adding a 5.2-inch 2560 x 1440 pixel display onto the Galaxy S5, this is the next step in display technology, already named 2K. Oppo’s next flagship and the HTC Two should be adding the new resolution.
Internal storage options include 32, 64 and 128GB, this is the first time we will see Samsung move away from 16GB of internal storage, we hope they drop the price of the 32GB model to fit in line with their previous pricing.
The rear camera should be a 16MP shooter, possibly with OIS tech and ISOCELL technology. On the front, there will be a 3.2MP front facing camera.
Battery size is important, considering the new screen resolution, Samsung will add a 3200mAh battery, to hopefully keep the device running for longer than a couple of hours.
Wireless features will include 4G LTE and LTE-advanced, 3G and WiFi a/b/g/n/ac. We have not heard of any NFC coming onto the device, so wireless charging may not be attainable on the Galaxy S5.
This may be due to the metal casing Samsung is preparing to add, instead of the faux leather or slimy back we have previously seen from the South Korean company.
