Just a day after a leaked report suggested Samsung’s next-gen flagship Galaxy S5 would come packing an all-metal chassis, new rumours have emerged appearing to pinpoint even more of the handset’s specs.
A new benchmark filing by GFX Bench for a device codenamed the SM-G900S, believed to be the Galaxy S5, has revealed some truly impressive features.
The display, already said to be five inches, will have a market-leading 2k display, with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. That could mean as many as 550 pixels per inch (ppi), making the Google Nexus 5 and iPhone 5s look puny by comparison.
The results also show that the S5 will use Android KitKat from the off. Hardly surprising, but it’s good to see there’s no temptation to use an old build of Google’s OS with promises of an upgrade at a later date.
Samsung is thought to be readying the device for launch in either February or March, following rumours of sluggish Galaxy S4 sales. With the rumour mill already whirring, expect plenty of hype once we get to the New Year.
