QHD display, fingerprint scanner again rumored for the Galaxy S5
Another day, another dose of Samsung Galaxy S5 rumors. Today's spicy bit of insider info comes straight from @evleaks who managed to obtain two of the Android application packages (or their names, at least) supposedly built for Samsung's upcoming flagship device. The bad news is that we aren't exactly sure what these APKs do. The good news, however, is that these packages' names seem to reveal some of the features that the Galaxy S5 will brag with once it is released.
One of these packages is called FingerprintService.apk, suggesting that Samsung may place a fingerprint scanner of some kind on the Galaxy S5. With analysts claiming that the biometric feature will indeed be present on the device, today's rumor is definitely shaping up as a credible one. Let us not forget, however, that an APK of that same name was supposedly meant to be pre-loaded onto the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, yet ultimately, the device launched without an embedded fingerprint scanner.
Of course, it would be wise to take all of the above information with a huge grain of salt. Galaxy S5 rumors are a dime a dozen, and some of them are bound to turn out totally incorrect. Thankfully, it won't be that long until we get to see the Galaxy S5 in the flesh. Samsung is expected to announce its next flagship Android device in February or March of this year, and that can't come soon enough.
