A few hours from now, Samsung will unveil its much hyped handset of the year, the Galaxy S5, at the MWC 2014. The South Korean giant Samsung managed to keep a secret around the Galaxy S5 for far.
There has been lot of speculations in respect to Galaxy S5's internal hardware and spec sheet.
But until today, there was not a single picture surfaced on the web shedding light on the Galaxy S5's design element. Today, the Galaxy S5 has been ripped apart in hands-on live images.
Samsung Galaxy S5: Unique design?
It is hard to believe that Samsung would like to continue with same polycarbonate plastic design. The Samsung Galaxy S5 (see picture above) is made out of polycarbonate plastic; though, the rear-back cover seems to be inspired by first-gen Asus Nexus 7.
We can see the rugged nature of Galaxy S5 (check back cover). Moreover, it appears that the next-gen Galaxy S series handset might have fingerprint free design, so no more smudges. In one of the images, the Galaxy S5 can be seen with the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S4.
As per the latest leak, the Galaxy S5 will be waterproof and dust resistance, which goes hand-in-hand with previous leak.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 will support USB 3.0, just like the Galaxy Note 3. The microUSB port is covered by a flap, so as to enable waterproofing.
The Galaxy S5 will feature a finger print sensor inside the home button. Yes, you heard it correctly. All you need to swipe your fingers across the screen to register your thumb impression.
On the rear-back, we can see a large camera sensor, next to the LED Flash. Moreover, there will be a heart rate monitor. It works when you put your index finger on top of it.
The 16-megapixel camera will feature "selective focus", that allows you to take picture and later focus on the background. The rear-camera will also allow you to record videos in 4K format.
The screen size, in particular, is surely large, when compared to Galaxy S5. We don't know its resolution just yet. The Galaxy S5's 5.25-inch screen is claimed to be "Full HD", instead of 2K resolution.
The battery fitted inside the Galaxy S5 is disappointing for sure. The leaked picture show that the S5 will come with a 2,800mAh battery.
Samsung will officially launch the Galaxy S5 later in the day. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
