KDB Daewoo Securities Research Sends Note with Galaxy S5 Specs

February 3, 2014 - Written By Alexander Maxham

It’s that time of year, time for tons of rumors and leaks to pop up on Samsung’s next flagship device. This time we’re talking the Galaxy S5. Which a Korean Securities firm KDB Daewoo Securities Research passed along a rumored spec sheet for both the Galaxy S5 and the iPhone 6. But we are only going to talk about the Galaxy S5. This was in a note sent to their clients this morning.

The rumored specs of the Samsung Galaxy S5 include a 5.25-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560×1440, which gives it a 560ppi. It’s also going to have the quad-core 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor or the octa-core 64-bit 2GHz Exynos 6 processor, depending on the model of the Galaxy S5 of course. It’s likely that LTE-markets will get the Snapdragon 805 with the rest of the world getting the Exynos 6. It’s also said to sport 3GB of RAM, along with there being 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB internal storage models available. Although looking at the past, we will probably only see the 32GB model and maybe the 64GB model as an exclusive on some carrier. As far as the cameras go, we’re looking at a 16MP camera on the back and a 3.2MP camera on the front. It’ll be running Android 4.4 (likely 4.4.2) out of the box, and powered by a 3200mAh battery inside. It’s also reported to launch in the first or second quarter of the year.

Of course, we’ll need to warn you that this is a rumor, and there’s no way we can confirm this. However, these specs do line up with what we’ve been hearing over the past couple of months, so they are likely to be true. But we’ll still be taking it with a grain of salt, at least for now. The specs certainly do look juicy, and it’ll be hard to resist the Snapdragon 805, as it’s slightly more powerful than the powerhouse Snapdragon 800. What do all of you think about these specs?
