Samsung Galaxy S5 have been the center of attraction from the past few days. Not too long ago, we’ve heard another rumor that also hinted towards the launch of the handset in mid-March in London.
According to a well-known analyst who goes by the name of Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities has issued a note to investors, and this time it’s not about the iPhone, but mentions about some of the possible specifications of the purported Samsung Galaxy S5.
According to Kuo, the handset will launch in two versions which he describes as Prime and Standard. Unfortunately, he believes both of them will carry the plastic form factor, not the metalic chassis. Apple has sparked the entire smartphone market with the inclusion of the Touch ID sensor, and Kuo also mentioned Samsung Galaxy S5 will come with a fingerprint scanning technology.
In terms of specificaitons, there are a few differences between the Prime and Standard models. The Prime model model will be powered by a 32-bit octa-core Samsung Exynos 5430 processor, while the Standard version will come with either 32-bit octa-core Samsung Exynos 5422 or a quad-core Snapdragon 800 SoC under the hood.
Both devices will come with a 5.2-inch display, but the Prime version will come with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels with 565ppi pixel density. On the other hand, the standard version will feature a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels with 423ppi pixel density.
Other specifications remains the same including 3GB of RAM, 16MP camera for photos and videos, 2MP front-facing camera, 3D Gesture Support, and a 2,850mAh battery.
While we’ve heard rumors in the past that Samsung Galaxy S5 will feature Iris scanning technology, which some suggest is not correct, and Kuo also believes Samsung is not ready to introduce this feature.
