We’re just months away from the official Samsung Galaxy S5 launch, leaving consumers everywhere eagerly anticipating the specs of this groundbreaking smartphone.
In some of our previous blog posts here at GalaxyS5US.com, we covered a number of rumored features, including eye-scanning technology, aluminum and leather body, curved display, etc. However, we now have details on what’s believed to be the official specs for the Samsung Galaxy S5!
Insider Information From SamMobile
Earlier this week, SamMobile published an article on their website claiming to have direct content with a Samsung insider. This informant provided a number of specific details regarding the company’s upcoming Galaxy S5 smartphone. Whether or not this “insider” is real is yet to be determined, but the specs published on their website look pretty realistic.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 Will Come In Two Models
According to the insider information published at SamMobile, the Samsung Galaxy S5 will come in two different versions: a metal version for roughly $670 bucks, and a plastic version for $450 bucks. This is something that many people had expected (including myself) given the success of the Apple iPhone 5s, which is also available in a plastic and metal version. With two different models, consumers will have greater freedom over choosing a device that fits their budget and needs.
Note: Samsung will likely try to push the ‘premium’ metal version of their flagship Galaxy S5 device. The only difference between the two models, however, is the material used on the back and sides. Budget-conscious shoppers may want to stick with the plastic model to save a couple hundred bucks.
2,560×1,440 Screen Resolution
Still worried about the Samsung Galaxy S5 suffering from a low-quality display? If the details leaked by the informant are correct, it will pack a powerful, crystal-clear 2,560×1,440 resolution on a 5.25-inch screen.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 will feature a 16-megapixel back camera along with a smaller front-facing camera. Note: the informant details did not provide information on the Galaxy S5’s front-facing camera.
Exynos 6 or Snapdragon 805 Processor
Depending on whether or not long-term evolution (LTE) is enabled, the Samsung Galaxy S5 will feature either the Exynos 6 processor or a Snapdragon 805 processor. This makes the Samsung Galaxy S5 the first smartphone powered by the Snapdragon 805 processor. The Samsung Note 3 currently featured the Snapdragon 800 processor, which is considerably slower than this new 805 model.
