We have a bit of good news – if you dig rumors – for those of you who are excited to see the Galaxy S5 next week. Samsung is expected to announce its new flagship during its Unpacked 5 press conference during Mobile World Congress. Typically, that means the phone won't hit the market for a little while – we're mostly just teased about what's to come and then we kind of sit and wait for it to finally land on our carrier. That might not be the case this time around.
According to GSMArena, which said it received word direct from a Samsung executive, the Galaxy S5 is already prepared to launch. The device will start rolling out to carriers in the next three weeks, the site said. Samsung's previous flagships have hit all of the major U.S. carriers, and typically within a few days of one another. That means the Galaxy S5 could potentially be in your hands by mid-March.
Specs are still a bit of a mystery. Some rumors have suggested we'll see a Quad HD display, some have pointed to a standard 1080p screen, and that has us wondering if there are perhaps two models in the works. Otherwise, we're generally expecting a Snapdragon 800 processor, a 5.25-inch screen, an improved camera (reports vary in that range, too, some saying a 21-megapixel sensor will be included), and more.
TechnoBuffalo will be reporting from Samsung's Unpacked 5 event live on Monday, Feb. 24. We'll be sure to bring you all of the details then.
