Samsung Galaxy S5 tipped for February launch

23 January 2014, 17:33 Eugene Odanga

Nairobi - Samsung seems to be in no mood to rest on its laurels after earning rave reviews thanks to its premium smartphones, as the company is said to be about to launch its much-anticipated Galaxy S5 next month.

Mobile Review’s Eldar Murtazin claims that the South Korean company plans to launch the much-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S5 at an event in Barcelona on February 23, ahead of MWC 2014

The tweet said, “Samsung Galaxy S5 launch – 18.00. Barcelona. 23 February. Price the same. Launch – end of April. Specs you know them new touchwiz”

The tweet does not reveal any details about the innards of the expected Galaxy S5 but suggest that the specifications are ‘known’, pointing out to previous reports.

Rumoured specifications of the Galaxy S5 include a 2K display, boasting a resolution of 1440×2560 pixels (QHD); a 2900mAh battery, and an eye-scanning sensor. Notably, a device codenamed Samsung SM-G900S, and sporting a screen resolution of 1440×2560 pixels (2K) was leaked in December last year. The device was believed to be the Samsung Galaxy S5, and was said to feature a 5-inch or 5.2-inch display, making the pixel density an incredible 560ppi at that resolution.

Other rumoured specifications of the Galaxy S5 include a Exynos 6 (believed to be the successor of the Exynos 5 octa-core chipsets) or Snapdragon 805 processors; Android 4.4 KitKat and Super AMOLED display.
