Samsung Galaxy S5 rumors: specs, features and others

Galaxy S5 concept

A report by SamMobile claimed that the S5 is set to get a new model number.

SM-G900 will be the family model number for the new Samsung flagship devices, with letters at the end of each number helping to differentiate the versions.

Another report concerned the device’s display resolution.

A listing on the website of South Korean mobile operator LG U+ revealed that the SM-G900L is a Galaxy Android 4.4 KitKat device.

The listing also showed that the handset’s 5.1-inch display will maintain the current 1080p resolution.

An analytical report by KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of the possible specifications of the Galaxy S5 indicates the presence of a fingerprint reader possible.

He also expects the handset to be made available in two versions with the same 5.2-inch display, but a different resolution.

This week @evleaks posted a picture that seemingly confirms that the name of the device will be Galaxy S5.

Other images show two Android applications, “FingerprintService.apk” and “3DTourViewer_WQHD_K.apk”, allegedly from the Galaxy S5.

These seem to be the first confirmation of the implementation of the fingerprint reader on the smartphone.

The other image posted by @evleaks suggests the device will feature a 2K resolution of 2,560 x 1,440.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 is rumored to be unveiled in March.
