Samsung Galaxy S5 leaked ahead of launch
Just hours before its imminent announcement, Samsung’s upcoming flagship device, the Galaxy S5, was prematurely exposed in full glory by a handful of leaksters, including a Hardware Zone forum member.
Based on the pictures uploaded by the leakster, the SGS5 still rocks a plastic body but with a dimpled back panel to go along with its presumably rugged (IP67-certified) build.
The leaked photos also gave us a peek at some of the new proprietary software in the upcoming smartphone including the “Fingerprint Scanner” app which is said to make use of the built-in scanner embedded on the device’s physical Home button.
Another notable app shown in the leaked photos includes the “Download Booster” which, as its name implies, hastens the download of files bigger 30MB.
In addition to these fancy software add-ons, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 also received a few hardware upgrades including a revamped 16MP which is capable of shooting 4K videos and comes complete with “Selective Focus” feature which is said to work similarly to Nokia’s Refocus App.
Other details about the Samsung Galaxy S5 is expected to be revealed in a few hours, so stay tuned for our coverage.
