Alleged Samsung Galaxy S5 spec details emerge

The Samsung leaks continue! Following the emergence of Android 4.4.2 test updates for both the Galaxy S 4 and Galaxy Note 3 this past weekend, a new report has surfaced that claims to have some spec details on Samsung’s upcoming flagship, the Galaxy S5.

The folks at SamMobile claim to have been told by their “insider” that the Galaxy S5 will come to market with a 2560×1440 display that could measure in at around 5.25 inches in size. Around back, the Galaxy S5 will reportedly feature a 16-megapixel camera, and the inside of the unit is expected to house either an Exynos 6 processor or Snapdragon 805 depending on whether or not 4G LTE support is present. Android 4.4 KitKat is expected to be the Galaxy S5′s dessert of choice.

All of those features will allegedly be crammed into a body that will be offered in two different versions: One metal and one plastic. Yes, Samsung has caught quite a bit flak for its plastic-y smartphone bodies in the past, but today’s report claims that the company will finally respond to those critiques by offering a version of its Galaxy S5 with a metal body. That unit will reportedly come to market with a price tag around 800 Euros ($1092 USD), while the plastic version is expected to come in at around 650 Euros ($887 USD).

Obviously nothing is official until Samsung makes it so, but many of these leaked spec details seem like pretty logical upgrades from the Galaxy S 4. A super high-res 2560×1440 display sounds like one of the device’s craziest features, but we were already starting to hear about new Android phones with similar displays toward the end of 2013, and you can bet that Samsung is planning to go all out for its 2014 flagship. As for when we might see the Galaxy S5 debut? A Samsung exec recently teased that the device will be introduced around March or April.

In addition to providing us with a possible list of the Galaxy S5′s specs, today’s report claims that Samsung is also working on follow-ups to the Galaxy S4 zoom and Galaxy S4 mini. The former is expected to hit in May while the latter will come in June, both with Android 4.4 in tow. The Galaxy S5 zoom will reportedly include a 4.8-inch qHD display as well.
