Samsung Galaxy S5 coming at MWC 2014, Samsung exec allegedly confirms

The gentleman you’re seeing in the photo on the left is Dong-hoon Chang. He guided Samsung’s mobile design efforts in the last years, currently serving as EVP and Head of Design Team for the company’s IT & Mobile Communications division, and Head of Design Strategy Team at Samsung Electronics’ Corporate Design Center.

According to Korea’s inews24, Dong-hoon Chang today confirmed that Samsung would unveil its new Galaxy S5 high-end smartphone at MWC this February. Unfortunately, that’s all that the Samsung exec allegedly said.

The Korean publication notes that Galaxy S5 is a “tentative name”, so we may have a surprise when it comes to the handset’s final moniker (although, frankly, S5 seems to be the best choice for the smartphone's official name).

Rumors regarding the features of the new Galaxy appeared countless times until now, suggesting that we should expect to see it having a 64-bit Exynos processor and a 5.25-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560) AMOLED display. We also saw a few concepts that envision the Galaxy S5 through the eyes of fans, but there’s no way of telling if any of them resemble the real device.

MWC 2014 debuts on February 24 in lovely Barcelona, so we’re not that far away from finding out if the Galaxy S5 will be announced there. Of course, 'till then, CES 2014 kicks off next week, albeit Samsung will probably not reveal any new smartphones at this show (but it might showcase the Galaxy Gear 2). Whatever happens, we'll let you know!
