Samsung Galaxy S5 release date in late February confirmed

The Korean manufacturer sent invitations to what it dubbed as “2014 Episode 1” in its “Unpacked” series of events.

The confirmation that the device that will be unveiled at the event is indeed the Galaxy S5 now comes from The New York Times.

The publication cites an industry source that claims the smartphone will be presented in a “relatively low-key event.”

The report notes that a new version of Samsung’s Knox security software will be introduced.

Rumors about the implementation of an eye scanner or a Quad HD, or WQHD, display were denied by the publication’s source.

An improved camera and a higher-performance processor will be among the handset’s specs.
