Samsung Galaxy S5 rumored features posted online: 5.24-inch display, fingerprint scanner, S Band bracelet

Yesterday, invites sent by the Korean manufacturer confirmed that the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona will host the launch event of the handset at 20:00 on February 24.

Now Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin has just confirmed many of the potential specifications of the device in a tweet.

The Galaxy S5 could thus get a larger screen than the current model, offering a 5.24-inch AMOLED display with 2560 x 1440 resolution (560 pixel per inch density).

According to Eldar Murtazin, two versions may be available: one would be powered by an Exynos 6 processor, while the other would pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset.

Both should be completed by 3 GB of RAM.

The S5 will also come with 3200 mAh battery, a digital 16 megapixel rear camera and a 3.2 megapixel cam on the front, as well as 32/64GB of memory.

Murtazin added that the device will come with an S Band bracelet, a new version of S Health, and new accessories.

Software side, the blogger wrote that “a lot of software for smart home” will be available with the new S5.
