Samsung Galaxy S5 to arrive in stores in three weeks (in mid-March)
It’s pretty much all set - the Samsung Galaxy S5, one of the most anticipated devices for the year, should be officially unveiled in just a few days at Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona. And now, a report claims that Samsung will not only be quick to introduce the Galaxy S5 early in the year, but the retail launch will follow up very quickly and the device should be on store shelves in just three weeks. The information is allegedly coming from a Samsung executive, who has shared the S5 release date with GSM Arena. Starting the count-down now, this would mean that the S5 would go on sale in mid-March.

Samsung has officially confirmed that it will hold its “Unpacked 5” event next week, and has teased icons from its new, overhauled TouchWiz that should come with modern, flat-style visuals.

Rumors so far suggest that the Galaxy S5 will launch in two variations. Both are said to have a 5.2” display, but the first one will feature the same 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution as the Galaxy S4, and the second one, an S5 Prime of sorts, is said to have a Quad HD 1440 x 2560-pixel screen. Under the hood, the S5 should come with a quad-core Snapdragon 800 system chip (a slightly improved model of it, though) and 3GB of RAM. On the back, both S5s could flaunt a 16-megapixel ISOCELL camera.

Let’s not forget, though, that this mid-March release date and the aforementioned specs are just rumors at the moment. In just a few days, we should see the Galaxy S5 in all of its glory at MWC, and we’ll be covering it all live from the showroom floor. Stay tuned!
