The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 has been leaked extensively in the past few months. The rumor mill predicted everything we could expect from the alleged handset.
Recently, the well-connected @evleaks posted a few tweets that gives a sneak peak at some of the APKs of the purported Samsung Galaxy S5, suggesting it will come with a WQHD display sporting a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, and a fingerprint scanning technology of some sort.
The two tweets posted by @evleaks shows APK files, which if you don’t know are the same as .exe files for windows, dubbed as “Fingerprintservice.apk” and “3DTourViewer_WQHD_K.apk.” The notorious leaker said it’s from the Samsung Galaxy S5, and if you take it from that perspective, it suggests that it will come with some sort of fingerprint sensor, either on the front similar to iPhone 5S or back. Although we’ve heard rumors that Samsung might implement a fingerprint scanner below the display.
Regarding the WQHD display, it’s nothing new, we’ve seen countless rumors in the past suggesting that it will come with 2K resolution, and it could.
Based on rumors, other specifications include a Snapdragon 805 or Exynos 6 processor, 16MP ISOCELL camera, 3GB of RAM, 2MP front-facing camera, 2,850 mAh battery and runs Android 4.4 KitKat pre-installed out of the box. A recent report mentioned there will no metallic chassis, and it will come with two versions, Prime and Standard, both of them will come with a plastic body.
Regarding it’s launch, there’s no solid proof available, but rumors suggest that it might see the light of the day at a press event in London in mid-March, while some say it could take place on February 23rd before the MWC kicks off.
Let’s just take it with a grain of salt and wait for Samsung to take the wraps of its upcoming flagship device.
