An alleged leaked image of the Samsung Galaxy S5 retail box packing has been spotted on the Internet, days before the expected launch of the smartphone.
Leaked box image suggests a 5.25-inch QHD (1440x2560pixels) Super AMOLED display, 2.5GHz quad-core processor, 3GB RAM and a 20-megapixel rear camera with a 2-megapixel front shooter. The image also reveals a 3000mAh battery and the Android 4.4 KitKat OS.
Although the specs align with few rumoured specifications tipped earlier, but it is of course possible that the box image could be doctored. The styling and the icons shown in the image look exactly like the Galaxy S4 and Note 3 box packaging, and it is highly unlikely that Samsung would keep the same branding for another generation.
Previous rumoured specifications of the Galaxy S5 included a 5.24-inch AMOLED screen with a QHD resolution; two storage variants – 32GB and 64GB; two processor variants – Exynos 6 and Snapdragon 805, and a 3200mAh battery. The optics rumoured for the Galaxy S5 included a 16-megapixel rear camera, and a 3.2-megapixel front-facing shooter.
Earlier on Tuesday, Samsung shared a teaser image that shows what seems like the new colour theme and fonts of the revamped TouchWiz UI, which is very different from the one seen in previous leaks that tipped Samsung’s overhauled TouchWiz UI.
The teaser image also listed some features namely: Speed, which seems like a reference to the upgraded processor; Outdoor, which we assume is for the upgraded battery capacity in the Galaxy S5; Fun, Style and Social, which point to some new apps in the device; Privacy, points to the upgraded Knox security software expected to be preloaded on the Galaxy S5, and Fitness, which can be expected to point to new health related apps.
The Galaxy S5 is also expected to feature a fingerprint scanner which is said to be integrated into the device’s display panel. The device is expected to make an appearance at the unpacked event on 24 February.
On Monday, Samsung Galaxy S5 was spotted on AnTuTu benchmarks in two variants boasting different set of specifications.
