The Galaxy S5 and the iPhone 6 are no doubt the most anticipated Smartphones of 2014. Both Samsung and Apple are known for their bold moves of pushing beyond the bounderies to deliver flagship Smartphones that wow us. Given such history, we always expect their devices to come with better specs and features compared to their predecessors.
With such high hopes, we always get leaks, rumours and concepts of these devices months before they are even announced. This year, the rumours started in January, quite early to say the least, and we expect them to continue till the devices are officially unveiled.
One of the latest rumours to surface is by a Korean securities firm that suggest two variants of the iPhone and some specs for the Galaxy S5. It is surprising that the company did not say anything about some of the earlier leaks such as fingerprint or retina scanners on the Galaxy S5. This is not surprising as these are not full specs for the device anyways.
The alleged specs for the Galaxy S5 are as follows:
- 5.2 inch – 5.25 inch 2560×1440 AMOLED display (560ppi)
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 or Samsung Exynos 6 processor (depending on model)
- 3GB RAM
- 32/64/128GB storage configurations
- 16MP/3.2MP cameras
- Running Android 4.4 KitKat
- Release date: Q1 or Q2 this year
These may not be eye-catching specs but still are improvements from the current flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S4.
For the iPhone 6, the company suggests that Apple will have a 4.7 inch iPhone with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 and a 5.5 inch iPhone with a resolution of 1280 x 2272. As for what OS these two devices will run, the company suggests iOS 7.2 and not iOS 8 as we have come to believe. The launch date for these two devices may be earlier than the previous Launch dates.
