No points for guessing that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will see a launch in March. The South Korean company has mostly held onto the first quarter of the year for unveiling devices in its flagship series, so we won’t be surprised if the next Galaxy S smartphone also makes its debut before April rolls in.
The news comes from a Twitter user going by the name @flapic. The tweet quotes a ‘reliable source’ as the supplier of the leaked information and also reveals that the Galaxy S5 will show up at a London event in mid-March. If you remember, the current model was launched on March 14 last year.
Samsung to hold its next Global launch (S5?) event in London in a mid March date, a reliable source confirmed me.

The very first smartphone in this series arrived in March 2010, it’s successor landed in February 2011 and we had the S3 in May 2012. It’s possible that Samsung will stick to March yet again for its next flagship release. As GSMArena who picked up the story through SamMobile points out, the S5 was previously expected to be outed at the MWC 2014.
The MWC will be taking place between 24 and 29 February. But it’s not likely that Samsung will unleash the handset amidst all the clamor. According to an older rumor, the device will have 32GB ROM, a 16MP camera, 3GB RAM, a Snapdragon 800 MSM8904AC processor clocked at around 2.4GHz with Adreno 330 graphics and a metal frame.
It is supposed to go by the model number SM-G900F. Speaking of Galaxy leaks, a GT-I9405 was the latest to break cover and before that, we had the Galaxy Note 3 Neo in the flesh (pictured above).
