At this relatively early stage we’re recommending high dosages of salt with your Samsung Galaxy S5 rumours, though we are of course duty bound to report ‘em, silly or otherwise.
Starting with the camera, it’s Korea’s ET News saying that next year’s Samsung Galaxy S5 will have a 16MP rear shooter, a step up from the 13MP snapper found on the Samsung Galaxy S4.
That’d put the Samsung Galaxy S5 on par with the 16MP Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom as far as pixel count goes, though we expect the inevitable Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom will leap to 20MP.
Meanwhile, GalaxyS5Info is going against the grain, suggesting that the Samsung Galaxy S5 won’t be built from “premium materials”, instead sticking with plastic and throwing in Galaxy Note 3-style faux leather.
Samsung Galaxy S5 colours will supposedly include Black, White, Pink, Lime and Yellow. Expect those to get the traditional Samsung marketing treatment, perhaps something along the lines of Yellow Snow and Pink Triangle.
The HTC One garnered a ton of praise for its delicious aluminium body, while the Samsung Galaxy S4 largely failed to impress with plastic. We’re told, however, that Samsung might push ahead with metal phones in its much-discussed Samsung Galaxy F range.
