samsung galaxy s5 concept specs

Samsung’s much-hyped Galaxy S5 could be launched as soon as February, if a new report from the tech giant’s native Korea is to be believed.

ET News claims that Samsung is looking to unleash the device ahead of the first anniversary of the Galaxy S4, which falls next April. Recent rumours have suggested that slow sales of that handset may have caused Sammy to bring forward plans for its new flagship.

Interestingly, the report serves up some juicy new morsels about the phone. Word is it’ll come in two variants: One a metal-chassis packing effort with a flexible screen; the other a plastic model with a regular display.

Specs-wise, both phones will come loaded with a blisteringly fast octa-core processor, Android 4.4 KitKat, 3GB of RAM and a 5-inch display. The same report claims that Samsung could launch the sequel to its Galaxy Gear smart watch at the same time.

Production of the Galaxy S5 will apparently ramp up at the start of the New Year, with a potential release at or around Mobile World Congress, held in Barcelona next February.
