Samsung will be holding an event at Mobile World Congress on 24 February, where we’re expecting the Galaxy S5 to be announced. While it seems almost certain we’ll be introduced to the device, we still don’t know any firm details about its specification.
Rumours have been circulating for months, and the latest comes from long-time mobile blogger Eldar Murtazin. This week, he tweeted an almost complete list of features which could find their way into the Galaxy S5, including an exciting prediction regarding the screen.
How does a 5.24-inch AMOLED display with a 2560×1440 pixel screen sound? Pretty good right? A sensibly sized screen with such a high resolution means a very high pixel density, and here it would be a huge 560ppi.
Like previous Galaxy smartphones, there could be at least two different versions running alternative processors. Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 805 is suggested in the tweet, along with a currently unannounced Exynos 6 chip. Samsung may fit 3GB of RAM in there, repeating the amount inside the Galaxy Note 3.
Additionally, we could see a 16-megapixel camera on the rear, a 3.2-megapixel front camera, a 3200mAh battery, plus a choice of 32GB or 64GB of internal storage.
It’s the screen tech which would really make the Galaxy S5 stand out, but there’s still a question mark over whether Samsung has such a high-res display ready to go. LG is also rumoured to be fitting a 1440p screen to the G Pro 2, the G3, or both. We’ll find out the answer on 24 February.
