A photo claimed to be of the bottom side on a retail Samsung Galaxy S5
box has been tipped, and it shows some specs that are quite different from the conventional, albeit rumor-derived knowledge about the handset.
The styling and iconography on the rear side of the box look exactly like the wrapper that the Galaxy S4
and Note 3
arrive with. That also means the alleged specs could very well have been doctored over a box snap of those two, though it differs enough from them both - there's no S Pen icon here, and no RAM icon on the S4 box, for example.
In any case, you can see for yourself that the alleged S5 box lists it having a Quad HD (1440x2560 pixels) Super AMOLED display, which is in line with predictions, a 2.5 GHz processor, likely the fastest Snapdragon 800, and 3 GB of RAM, just like the leaked AnTuTu screenshot of one of the US models of the S5
The similarities, however, stop here, as the phone is listed with 20 MP rear camera, and 3000 mAh battery, while conventional leaked wisdom so far pointed to a 16 MP unit
on the back, and a 3200 mAh battery pack
. Also, the "2" in the 20 MP camera icon is not bolded, whereas on the S4 and Note 3 boxes the "1" depicting a 13 MP camera is in bolded font, so take this with the obligatory grain of salt until more stable proof appears for such a high-res camera indeed.
