Design reference might accurately reveal what the Samsung Galaxy S5 will look like

Design reference might accurately reveal what the Samsung Galaxy S5 will look like
If the name Sonny Dickson sounds familiar to you, it is because the young Australian captured everyone's attention last year, by working out deals that enabled him to receive parts from the Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5c well before either phone was officially launched in September. Last year, Dickson told Reuters that he had a number of sources that buy parts from factory workers for $250 to $500.

While Dickson has given the spotlight away to others like master leaker evleaks, he isn't completely out of the information game. On Tuesday, he revealed what is being referred to as a "design reference" for the Samsung Galaxy S5. Dickson merely shows off the design and asks, "Is this the Samsung Galaxy S5?"

The design shows dimensions of the phone being 141.7mm x 72.5mm x 8.2mm. That compares with the Samsung Galaxy S4's measurements of 136.6mm x 69.8mm x 7.9mm. If true, it would mean that Samsung's latest Android flagship model would be slightly larger than the current model. Other than that, we spot a few sensors on the front of the handset, a speaker on the bottom of the phone's rear, and a camera lens that sticks out from the surface of the device.

For those of you who are thinking of buying the Samsung Galaxy S5 when it is released, if the phone does resemble this design, would it strengthen or weaken your desire to buy the device?
