With the Samsung Galaxy S4 almost a year old, we’re expecting the official Samsung Galaxy S5 teasing to start any week now.
In the meantime, Samsung Galaxy S5 specs have reportedly been “confirmed”, and we’re discussing the all-important Samsung Galaxy S5 launch date; how does March sound?
Unsurprisingly, it’s SamMobile serving the “confirmed” Samsung Galaxy S5 specs, with credit going to “our insider”.
He or she says Samsung Galaxy S5 specs will include a 2560 x 1440 resolution, though the source was “unable to confirm the size” (probably 5.25in).
You can also expect a 16MP rear camera, Exynos 6 or Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor (depending on region/model), and KitKat Android 4.4. I reckon 3GB of RAM is a pretty good shout, too.
Perhaps most interesting is the notion that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will come in both metal and plastic, with the former commanding a higher price. Again it’s suggested that the metal chap might in fact be the first in the all-new Samsung Galaxy F line.
For what it’s worth, SamMobile also mentions the obligatory Samsung Galaxy S5 mini and Galaxy S5 Zoom, both launching after the flagship. Presumably a Samsung Galaxy S5 Active will arrive at some point, too.
As for the Samsung Galaxy S5 launch date, some Italian guy tweets: “Samsung to hold its next Global launch (S5?) event in London in a mid March date, a reliable source confirmed me.”
Similarly, a translation of an article on ZDNet Korea appears to shoot down the idea of the Samsung Galaxy S5 launch going down at MWC 2014. It’s expected that the South Koreans will focus on behind-the-scenes talks at the conference, with the flagship following at a separate launch event shortly thereafter.
