About the design have Samsung stated that their new top model will be “back to basics”, and that there will be a focus on the screen and the feeling of the model. What exactly does it cover, can be difficult to speculate about.
Nothing is certain, but the rumors about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 are many and (for the most part) persistent. We have assembled the most talked about rumors.
Firstly, we know when we know more. The 23.February 18 o’clock, during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Samsung promises the veil for S5. The price should be the same as on the Samsung Galaxy S4, since it was launched: 4,500 dollars without subscription. Probably we can expect to see S5 in stores until april.
A rumor going on that S5 will be launched in both a metal and a plastic version. Model in metal should in that case come to cost 150 €, or approximately 1100 Danish kroner, more than the plastic. Here, however, be taken into account that the Danish pricing may be different and cannot be translated directly.
Faster, as soon as
A mysterious benchmark popped up in december and gave a hint that we with S5 can expect a top rate of 2.46 gigahertz, which is a tad over the 2.26 GHz Galaxy Note 3 delivers. It is worth noting that the frequency is consistent with Qualcomm’s newly presented Snapdragon 805. It is the case, will the chip be equipped with 420-Adreno graphics, and you may expect 40% higher graphic performance. A good fit for a device with a 1440p screen.
Quite probably, it seems to be that the S5 comes with a 16 megapixel camera.
Earlier sounded the rumors that the new top model would come with optical image stabilization (OIS).However, this was later ruled out, since the mechanical image stabilization would S5 too thick. However, it is still likely that the S5 will get the digital beetle destabilisation, as Samsung introduced in S3.
All the loose
Back in september, we heard that Samsung meditated on that building the new Galaxy S5 on the operating system BADA’s successor, Thinkbear. If this has been under consideration, we should not comment on, however, at this stage it is highly unlikely that the S5 comes with anything else than Android.In consequence most of the rumors, will be born with Android 4.4 S5. Kitkat, which we clearly assess as the most likely.
An early rumor also went on that Galaxy S5 would get an eye scanner to be used as a security measure to unlock your phone up. This, however, also belongs to among the more loose rumors.
