There's a tendency on the internet to label something as "confirmed" when in reality nothing is confirmed until it's official and in an independent third party's hands to verify. As a result, device specs are "confirmed" and then later shown to have different features. The Samsung Galaxy S5 could be the next smartphone to suffer that fate because of premature confirmations, but the latest round of rumors are at least worth paying attention to because they come courtesy of the typically reliable Sammobile.com.
Here's what's supposedly on tap for the Galaxy S5
- The phone will come in two versions. One will be a premium metal version that costs 800 euros and the other will be a plastic model that costs 650 euros.
- The screen is estimated to be 5.25-inch and will have a 2,560 x 1,440 resolution. That's 559 pixels per inch, far more than you could ever need or want.
- The processor will be region-dependent. North American and LTE markets will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 while all other regions will use the Samsung Exynos 6 processor. Samsung is expected to introduce 64-bit support.
- Android 4.4 Kitkat software with a 16-megapixel camera that also has Optical Image stabilization.
Again, these aren't "confirmed" specs and are mostly just updated or slightly altered versions of rumors that have long been associated with the Galaxy S5. Nothing is definite until Samsung says it; however, there's reason to believe that Samsung will highlight these features when the Galaxy S5 is announced in March. Users can also expect Samsung to follow those announcements with the release of a Galaxy S5 Mini and S5 Zoom.source: Sam Mobile
