The latest Samsung Galaxy S5 concept image packs some of the best rumored specs and features.
The new render from GalaxyS5Info heralds in a 2K curved screen display. The screen is 5.25 inches in size with 2K resolution. This coincides with the rumor that Samsung is already working on a qHD screen displays with 2,560 x 1,440 pixel resolution.
Samsung is one of the few companies that are in the process of developing the flexible screen display expected to come in the company's 2014 flagship phone. However, other reports said such feature may not be included in the spec sheet of the Galaxy S5.
Another amazing feature in the concept image is the 64-bit Exynos octa core processor. Although Samsung has confirmed that it will definitely bring in chip processors with 64-bit architecture, it is still unverified if it will pack an octa core chip.
Selfie lovers will probably take a liking to the 16 MP ISOCELL camera at the back of the handset and the 4 MP front-facing camera. Probably with the use of the front camera, the render packs the futuristic iris scanner. Although reports said Samsung is working on the feature, it is hard to believe that it will be one of the features that will make it to the Galaxy S5.
Some of the other features of the latest Galaxy S5 render are S Surround special acoustics system, two flashes and powerful microphones.
The device is enveloped in a metallic casing. Rumor said the Galaxy S5 will pack a metal built and will finally let go of the plastic body it has used in its predecessors. It is further fuelled by the reports saying that Samsung will be receiving 10 to 30 million units of metal cases from Catcher Technologies, its Taiwanese supplier. Moreover, Samsung introduced Galaxy J, which packed a metal body.
However, a new report from DigiTimes denied the previous rumors and claimed no metal chassis is on its way to production and that Samsung is still mulling whether to pack such feature in its next Galaxy S handset.
As for the Samsung Galaxy S5 release date, the device's ETA is either at the Consumer Electronics Show in January or at the Mobile World Congress in February.
