Eldar Murtazin successfully predicted the Galaxy S 4 launch last year, and, as it appears, he was just a day off in predicting the Galaxy S 5 launch for February 23. This, of course, in case Samsung is really showing off the next flagship at its February 24 MWC special event (and all the signs point to that, including a big @ss “5” right on the invite).
Murtazin took it to Twitter to unveil what he claims to be the Samsung Galaxy S 5 specs. We’re likely looking at a Super AMOLED screen or 5.24 inches in diagonal and a QHD 2K resolution of 1440 x 2560. That results in a PPI rating of about 560. Behind the glass there should be either an Exynos 6 processor, or a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 (depending on the version and its regional intent), 3GB of RAM, 32- and 64GB internal storage options (most probably expandable via microSD), a 16MP (probably ISOCELL kind) and a 3.2MP camera combo, as well as a 3,200mAh battery powering everything.
While the leak doesn’t mention OS, it’s safe to assume the latest version of Android 4.4.2, with Samsung’s own UI on top of it. Whether it will be a new version of TouchWiz, or a tweaked version of the new Magazine UX, is yet unknown.
However, we’ll tell you all about it, as we’ll be on-site to bring you our usual, exhaustive, coverage.
