More Galaxy S5 spec details leak, might feature 3,200mAh battery

We’ve already given everyone exclusive details on the Galaxy S5′s hardware, and today, Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin has leaked info on a few specs that were previously unknown. Murtazin reaffirms that the Galaxy S5 will feature a 5.25-inch QHD (2,560×1,440) Super AMOLED display, Exynos 6 / Snapdragon 805 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 32/64 GB storage, and a 16-megapixel rear camera – new details that the man has offered say the S5 will feature a 3.2-megapixel front-facing camera and a large 3,200 mAh battery, both of which will be a couple of notches higher than the ones on the Galaxy S4.

If the details are accurate, that 3,200 mAh battery will be welcomed with open arms by consumers. It will also be put to rather good use, as that QHD display will no doubt demand considerable battery power, and a battery smaller than 3,000 mAh might not have been enough. The 3.2-megapixel front shooter will also be a first, and it seems Samsung is encroaching on the territory held by Chinese smartphones, which often come with 5-megapixel front-facing cameras. Murtazin doesn’t exactly have the best track record when it comes to leaks, but considering the fact that his prediction of the Galaxy S5 being unveiled in February at Mobile World Congress seems to have come true, we’re willing to believe the hardware details he’s revealed might be spot on as well.

The Galaxy S5 will run on Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box, with improved versions of several Samsung apps, such as S Health and WatchON, possibly a new interface, and will likely sport a fingerprint sensor. Market availability is expected to begin sometime in late April, and the handset will come in two variants, one with a metal body and the other with Samsung’s infamous plastic build (though with the faux leather back seen on the Galaxy Note 3 and other recent phones from the company), with a radically different design than current devices.

  1. Doubtful. The S line has never been more powerful than the previous-year Note device.

    • Uh, it has, actually. The S4 has considerably better specs than the Note II’s, and so have previous Galaxy S devices. Also, Samsung needs to make the S5 a stunner, as the S4 didn’t sell as well as they expected as it wasn’t that big an upgrade over the Galaxy S3.

      • yeah, skipped the S4 myself and kept my S3 even though I was on jump contract, if the S5 doesnt totally rock i may even keep the S3 and wait for the S6.

        • ^ Same!

          This is worth an upgrade from GSIII users! :)

    • For the daily use, Note line is better than S line, based on the huge battery life and multimedia approachability. The S4 was an Note 2 Mini with a smaller battery life for the final users. Maybe Note 4 will correct S5 mistakes as Note 3 did the last year. 2K displays are absurd on phones and Benchmarks are getting useless because we can’t get 100% of our phones. I would like to see a real revolution. Android has been almost the same since 4.0/4.1 and Samsung too, since S3.

  2. Anything SAMSUNG I always wish . But nothing beats the Galaxy Note products period.

  3. Samsung need to stop lying when it comes to 32/64 GB internal storage. 64GB versions never debuted.

    • Actually they did . . . just not in the US but in in some markets they did like S.Korea. Now if the US would actually just offer 64GB as the base model and be done with it since the bloatware takes up so much room. Its one of the key reasons I sold my note 3 you just can’t get the bloatware off on the Verizon version.

  4. I say never buy samsung product it will be greAt in hardware but for sofware people dont use 30 % and for update they say for some time but the update will come after 2 month

  5. A very new S5 smartphone running on a very ancient kitkat 4.4 version, with six or seven months ago running on others smartphones? What the heck is this? A joke? So, is this s+++t is true, it’s means s4 is not going to be upgrade. Y’all stink koreans.

  6. How big is a 3,200 mAh battery, and where are they going to put it?
