Samsung Galaxy S5 is the most awaited smartphone of the year and it might be released sooner than we previously thought. According to the newest rumors, it seems like the Galaxy S5 release date is going to be February 24, at Mobile World Congress (MWC), in Barcelona.
Previously Samsung held its own events to release their flagship device, but they might just do it at MWC and introduce it sooner than usual. Competition on the smartphone market is increasing exponentially, so they have to come with a much better device in order to maintain their market share.
The Galaxy S5 should come with an all-different design, packing a bigger display while keeping it’s height and width. We expect the Galaxy S5 to feature a 2K (1440×2560) 5.2-inch Super AMOLED display and an octa-core Exynos 6 or Snapdragon 805 processor, along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. We also believe it will sport a 16MP camera, able to record 4K videos and the smartphone will most likely be even thinner than the S4.
Samsung Galaxy S5 will definitely come with Android 4.4 KitKat and we might see a new TouchWiz version, with even more features similar to the ones present on the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3. Thanks to @evleaks, we even have some alleged screenshots of the Galaxy S5’s user interface.
Based on the previous rumors, we have a concept of the Samsung Galaxy S5. Thanks to Rappler, we can now imagine how Samsung’s upcoming flagship device will look like. We have to admit that it’s really amazing and I wish it was true. Bezel is basically out of the question, it has no physical buttons at all, which is what Google is trying to do with all Android OEMs.
You can see the concept below. Also let us know what you think about it. We really think it’s amazing.
Now we’ll have to wait until MWC to see if Samsung is really going to announce it so early. If they do, we expect the actual release date to be in March in Europe and by April in the US. In the US it should be available at all major carriers, including AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint.
