Samsung on-track to announce Galaxy S5 late-February

By Leigh D. Stark | 11:29 am 04/02/2014

Everybody get on the rumour treadmill, because they’re about to start flying, as Samsung’s next biggest secret looks to be announced at the end of February.

We always knew there would be a new entrant to Samsung’s Galaxy smartphone series, as there have been four so far, so why end there?

The good news is that the announcement for the Galaxy S5 may be just around the corner, with only a few weeks until Samsung tells the world what it’s been cooking up for its first flagship of 2014.

 

Earlier, the company send out a picture on its Twitter account, telling everyone the next chapter of the “Unpacked” announcements would be on February 24 in Barcelona, which also happens to be the starting date of Mobile World Congress, the place to be if you want to hear about smartphone announcements for the year from all of the big names, with the exception of Apple, of course.

It’s highly likely we’ll see Samsung announce the Galaxy S5 here, and while you could assume it would happen based on the regular February to March announcement the Galaxy series has had thus far, the title of Unpacked having a “5” directly next to the name practically gives it away.

Current rumours of the S5 suggest the next model will include a bigger screen featuring a higher-than-Full HD resolution of 2560×1440 (which would bring a Retina smashing pixel clarity of at least 500ppi), more RAM and storage, a better camera, and the possibility of a metal body for the first time in the Galaxy series.

We’ll know more soon enough, though, so just count the days until Samsung says more.
