I hardly recall a day in the past few weeks when we didn’t hear anything about the upcoming flagship device from Samsung. Yesterday, we saw quite a few rumors about some of the specifications of the alleged Samsung Galaxy S5.
Today, we have some more rumors to share with our readers that hints towards the launch of the alleged Samsung Galaxy S5. According to this new rumor, from a Russian journalist who goes by the name of Eldar Murtazin, Samsung will unveil the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S5 on 23rd February in Barcelona.
Eldar Murtazin tweeted today that Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S5 at a press event just a day before Mobile World Congress kicks off, followed by its availability in April for the same price. He further went on to say that it will carry the same set of specifications as we’ve heard before — they vary but most of them point towards the same thing. Included in the upcoming handset will be a new TouchWiz interface, which we’ve seen a few times, thanks to the famed Twitter leaker @evleaks.
To refresh your memory, we heard that Samsung will launch the alleged Galaxy S5 at a press event in London in mid-March with sales kicking off the next month. This new tweet from Murtazin opposes all the things we’ve heard about its launch. Although Samsung releases events at their own events, it could be a possibility as Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 3 just before IFA kicked off in Berlin.
Based on rumors, it will come with a 5.25-inch display sporting 2K resolution, 4GB of RAM, Snapdragon 805 or Exynos 6 based on whether it’s LTE or not, 16MP ISOCELL camera or 20MP (according to a new leak), fingerprint sensor, 2,900 mAh battery and runs Android 4.4 KitKat with a new TouchWiz UI.
Let’s just take this rumor with a grain of salt, as nothing is official until it comes from the Korean OEM no matter how accurate the rumor is. But, we should give this one some weight as he was predicted the launch date of the Samsung Galaxy S4 last year, so let’s just take it with a little bit of speculation.
