Pics claim to be of the Galaxy S5

One of the most anticipated launches that is happening at MWC 2014 is the Galaxy S5 smartphone from Samsung. Ahead of the official launch of the device, new images have leaked online.


The leaked images show that the smartphone has a physical button on the front. The person who leaked the images also says that the TouchWiz interface on the device is not a major overhaul compared to the previous version.


The photos do confirm a fingerprint scanner, which can be used with PayPal to authorize payments within the browser. Other specs tipped by the leak include a 16MP camera and IP67 dust and water resistance.


The phone will reportedly come with a 1440x2560 display, 32GB or 64GB of storage, and will also be available with two different processors including an Exynos 6 or a Snapdragon 805 according to the source. The phone is also tipped to get a 3.2MP front camera. Power comes from a 3200 mAh internal battery.
 
Samsung is scheduled to officially launch the Galaxy S5 later today. You can view quite a few more picture of the Galaxy S5 over at TechCrunch.

It isn't that I am against higher res, just that after a while, you run into diminishing returns. How many people can tell the difference between 1080p and 1440p on a 5 inch screen, no matter how close they hold it? Since Samsung didn't end up bumping the res after all, apparently they think they have reached "good enough" considering the trade-offs.

Well since there is no such thing as a 1440p 5" screen to go look at, I can't answer that.

At the very minimum you would get sharper text with NO jaggy lines, even large fonts would look utterly smooth and crisp.

There's probably people who think a DVD looks "as good" as a BluRay out there too. Thankfully nobody listens to them.

There could have been supply issues, volume issues, or it was too expensive etc etc. We don't know at the moment.

No one. Not a single human on the planet earth can tell the difference between 1080p and 1440p. You would need to look at the pixels under a microscope to discern the difference. The human eye just is not good enough.

We are talking about sacrificing battery life and performance for a benefit no human being can enjoy. Wonderful.
