Some Samsung Galaxy S5 specs reportedly confirmed. New Galaxy S5 Mini and S5 Zoom might join the flagship
Is Samsung’s new Galaxy S5 going to be announced in March? We can’t know for sure, but, according to a recent report, the South Korean company does indeed plan to unveil its new flagship Android smartphone in mid-March. Until then, it appears that some specs of the S5 have been confirmed.

SamMobile received word from an “insider” that the Galaxy S5 would come with a Quad HD (1,440 x 2,560 pixels) display - just as previously rumored. The screen will likely measure 5.25 inches. On the back, the S5 will reportedly have a 16MP camera (perhaps with optical image stabilization, but that's not confirmed). As in the case of older Galaxies, two processors will be used for the Galaxy S5, depending on model: a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805, and an eight-core Samsung Exynos 6.

Design-wise, the Galaxy S5 should have a plastic version, as well as a metal version. SamMobile is a Dutch website, so it revealed the prices of both versions in Euro: around €650 for the plastic one, and around €800 for the metal handset. In the US, we assume the prices will be around $650 and around $800, respectively.

Naturally, the Galaxy S5 should run Android 4.4 KitKat, but it’s not clear if Samsung’s new Magazine UX will be on top of it (probably yes). The amount of RAM, internal memory, battery, the presence or absence of a fingerprint scanner - all these are still mysteries for now.

In addition to launching the Galaxy S5, it’s said that Samsung prepares the release of a Galaxy S5 Mini and a Galaxy S5 Zoom. Yep, it looks like the South Korean company is sticking to its S4 strategy from last year, when we had an S4 Mini and an S4 Zoom. Both the S5 Mini and S5 Zoom should run Android 4.4 KitKat, featuring Super AMOLED displays (unknown size and resolution). The S5 Mini could be announced in May, while the camera-centric S5 Zoom might be introduced in June.

As always, although “confirmed” was used in this post, nothing is truly confirmed until a product is officially announced. So things may change. We'll definitely let you know when (and if) they do.

Hey Experia, Mxzy has calmed down from befor. Iv'e read quite a few posts from Mxzy and he was being honest and truthfull, and not being biased at all.... He surely deserves the credit. I hardly ever use to thumb him up, but lately Mxzy is ok know..

He will be unbiased for just a few times, and after that he will change back to an annoying Apple clown. If you say something bad about Apple, he will get butthurt and call you a troll. Better not take him seriously, really. Many of us here know Mxy is one of the biggest troll in PA. His knees must be really sore. I wonder how much does Apple pay him for trolling in articles.

I couldn't agree more.

Notice how he doesn't call himself an Android fanboy even though he has an Android avatar eating an apple.

50. Mxyzptlk unregistered

And notice how he's the first one to bring up the iPhone.

True, but i hope the iP6 will not get any taller, cause it's a nice looking device, and looks much better than iP4. The iP5 should have less bezels on the top and the bottom, so it would've looked less taller.

Come on Whoyton, Mxzy is ok sometimes, give the guy the credit. It's the Fandroids that kick of iOs and Wp usersso much by insulting them and degrading them orelse i don't see iUsers and Wp users kicking of for no reasons. Yes Mxzy is a Apple fan, but sometimes he is unbiased and normall I support honest and truthfull wise posts, not "Fanboys"

at least windows phone users still have some microsoft usability in their phones. like when i had a samsung omnia, it was suposed to be an iphone KILLER, but it didnt have enough ram and the lack of DEVELOPER side murderd it in the crib. but at least its camera was Still better than the iphones at the time. Iphones are jus TOYS!!!! they dont DO anything, save the camera! y cant users like Mxzy understand this??? using a GS2 runing 4.1.2 unrooted on sprint Wimax in Socal, so YES i have service

Fortunately, there's the Z1 Compact, but whether or not it will be released on any of the major US carriers is to be disclosed.

Well if the article PA posted is any indication as to what Sony has planned for the US, then I think you will see it in the near future. Or newer better Sony devices on more major US carriers besides T-Mobile. How else are they going sell 80 millions devices by 2015 in the US?
