Okay, we know that the following rumors might sound strange and hard to believe, but the image below, presumably of someone's finger covering the camera's lens, could have been taken with a Samsung Galaxy S5. The mysterious photo has been posted online some 20 days ago via Flipboard, an app that Samsung's recent Android phones come with out of the box, by a user called @123fliptest. Obviously, we're not being treated to a photographic masterpiece, but that's not of any importance right now. What's really interesting is that the image has been taken with a Samsung device model SM-G900-V, according to the embedded EXIF data. Allow us to remind you that the Samsung SM-G900 and its variations are believed to be different versions of the yet-to-be-announced Samsung Galaxy S5, and the G900-V is supposedly the model bound for Verizon.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is expected to be announced in February or March of this year, and that's when we'll learn whether or not the highly-anticipated device is masked behind the aforementioned model number. If that's the phone you're looking forward to, you might want to check out our Samsung Galaxy S5 rumor round-up.

And, right after sensor density, the next burning question is whether the GS5 camera has OIS?

No, it's not a joke. It's a rug.

Since Sony is making cameras for Samsung too, 21mpix is not very unlikely.

What would be a real winner is if the sensor was Bigger, much Bigger, more megapixels on the same size chip just make a worse picture. native aspect ratio should always be 16:9 as they display on monitors, tablets & TV much better & much smaller black bars.
