Galaxy S5 back briefly shows up in a hands-on video, reveals mysterious area next to the LED flash

One unlucky tech reporter inadvertently leaked the back of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 flagship, while doing their Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smart watches hands-on routine. If valid, this is the first actual picture of the device we are seeing, and in the last day before its announcement, which comes to show how well can Samsung keep a secret now. 

The Galaxy S5 will apparently have at least three color versions, with gold being the new launch color, and seems to be made of fancy plastic again. What really piques our interest, though, is the dark piece next to the LED flash. The fingerprint scanner is rumored to be integrated in the home key at the front, so the thingy next to the elliptic LED flash area must be something else in that case. Anyway, not much left until the Unpacked event, so it's good that some secrets still remain around Samsung's Galaxy S5 flagship.
