Samsung’s Unpacked 5 teaser hints at new interface for the Galaxy S5

Samsung’s official Twitter account has just posted a teaser for the company’s Unpacked 5 event, where the Galaxy S5 is expected to be announced, and the accompanying image might have given away the fact that the S5 will sport a considerably different interface. The image talks of various things, such as Speed (a hint at the new Exynos processor inside the device), Privacy, Outdoor (could the S5 be ruggedized?), Fun, Social, and Fitness, and the way the icons in the image are designed are a good indication of the expected redesign that Samsung’s software is expected to get with the coming of the Galaxy S5 (the icon for S Health, for example, isn’t the same as the one seen on Samsung devices today.)

The Galaxy S5 is expected to sport a 5.25-inch display of 2K resolution, an Exynos 6 octa-core / quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, 16-megapixel rear camera, 3.2-megapixel front-facing camera, 32/64 GB of storage and a microSD slot, a 3,200 mAh battery, and Android 4.4 KitKat with a refined user interface. It will come in both a metallic and plastic variant, most likely with a fingerprint scanner on-board, and launch in markets sometime in March.
