Samsung’s upcoming flagship, the Galaxy S5, was announced at CES last week and is to be expected this year in April together with a new Gear smartwatch. The company, however, certainly didn’t shine any light on what we should expect from this model except that it will supposedly debut Samsung’s iris-scanning tech to compete against Apple’s TouchID. More recently, SamMobile somehow managed to allegedly gather some saucy details of the soon-to-rock-our-socks-off flagship.

As the “inside sources” reveal, the Galaxy S5 will feature 2560×1440 pixels that’s expected to be fitted into a 5.25″ AMOLED display. This is a leap from the S4’s 1080×1920 5″ display and the more recent Galaxy Note 3 hosting a similar 1080×1920 but larger 5.7″ screen.

At the back there will be a 16MP camera which is a step up from its predecessors. There will be an LTE version, and the S5 will use either a Exynos 6 or Snapdragon 805 CPU. The S5 will of course run Android KitKat.

What SamMobile further discovered is that apart from the iris-scanning tech, the S5 will be available in a plastic as well as a metal chassis. The latter would be a truly welcome feature for any Samsung (or Android) fan. According to some rumours gathered by SamMobile, the premium model will have “a metallic back plate while being constructed of metal on the sides and front.”

Apart from all the S5 noise, we can expect to see a beefed up Galaxy S5 mini and Galaxy S5 Zoom both boasting Super AMOLED displays.
