What do we know about Galaxy S5?
Coming to Galaxy S5 and the rumours so far, according to rumours, Samsung is including a QHD (2560x1440p) display, new Exynos processor (3G variant)/ Snapdragon 805 (LTE variant), 16MP rear camera and Android 4.4 in Galaxy S5. In addition, the smartphone is reportedly going to pack a 2900 mAh battery with rapid charging support.
As you can see, the phone is going to be a hardware-beast but we can’t be fully certain about these specs until the official announcement.
On the software front, along with KitKat, Samsung is also opting for a new version of TouchWiz user-interface with a new design and flatter look. Some recent Samsung app UI leaks have confirmed this. The company might also unveil a Google-Now like information hub, which will be present on one home-screen of the revamped TouchWiz.
