Along with the iPhone 6, the rumor mill is also churning out rumors about Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S5 flagship phone. After “disappointing” people with the evolutionary Galaxy S4 update, Samsung is reportedly working on a huge spec bump for the Galaxy S5.
According to Eldar Murtazin, a person known to occasionally have inside info about mobile companies, the S5 will come with a 5.24 inch Super AMOLED screen, that will sport a resolution of 2560 x 1440 at an amazing pixel density of 560 ppi. The device will have an Exynos 6 or Snapdragon 805 processor depending on the market, and a 3GB RAM, with 32/64GB storage options.
While the iPhone 6’s camera is rumored to come with the same 8-megapixel count like iPhone 5s with improvements, Samsung is putting a 16MP rear-camera in the S5, up from the current 13MP camera in the Galaxy S4. According to Murtazin, the device will come with a 3200 mAh battery (the iPhone 5s has a 1560 mAh battery).
Samsung is known to pack some impressive specs in its devices, and if Murtazin’s claims are correct, the S5 looks like a complete beast, but there’s still the question of whether the S5 will come with a plastic or metal casing.
The Galaxy S5 may be launched at Samsung’s “Unpacked 5” media eventon February 24 in Barcelona.
