Samsung’s Galaxy S5 specs ‘confirmed,’ mini and Zoom variants in the works

Samsung’s Galaxy S4 didn’t manage to create as much buzz as the HTC One and the LG G2, probably due to its monotonous design, but the South Korean conglomerate might change all of that with its next installment, the Galaxy S5. A report has surfaced stating that the company will launch the device in two variants along with refreshes to the mini and Zoom models as well.

The source of the latest leak is SamMobile that has delivered accurate details regarding various other devices from the company over the past few months. According to the report, the Galaxy S5 will arrive in two options. First will be a model with a plastic form factor and the other one is likely to have a metal frame as previously rumored.

The source has also managed to get its hands on price details. The plastic Galaxy S5 will sell for around €650, while the metal one will cost €800. Now let’s move on to the specifications. Back in December, a device under the model number G900F was spotted in AnTuTu benchmark. Said to be the Galaxy S5, various specs were divulged including a 1080p screen, Snapdragon 800, 3GB RAM and a 16MP main camera.

In the latest leak, the device is said to sport a 2K display instead, measuring 5.25 inches wide and the 16MP camera will have hardware OIS. The company could implement the Snapdragon 805 SOC into the Galaxy S5 plastic model, while the metal version is most likely to sport an Exynos 6 chip with 64-bit support. Coming to the Zoom and mini versions, both devices are confirmed, according to the source, to have Super AMOLED displays and run on Android KitKat.

Samsung won’t showcase the Galaxy S5 at the MWC next month, but it will hold a separate event to announce the smartphone, which will probably take place in London sometime this March.
