Samsung Galaxy S5 to be called the Galaxy S5

@evleaks confirms the name, alongside 2K display and fingerprint scanner

Samsung’s next flagship smartphone will be called the Galaxy S5, serial leaker @evleaks has claimed as part of a series of tweets on Wednesday.

He also said that the follow up to Samsung’s current flagship smartphone the Galaxy S4, will come with a 2K resolution and a fingerprint scanner.

While none of those rumours are new, the fact that @evleaks has tweeted them adds about as much credibility to them as possible short of Samsung announcing publishing the details itself.

Samsung has not confirmed or denied any of the features rumoured to be appearing in the Samsung Galaxy S5.

All of the tweets were accompanied by images that back up @evleaks’ claims.

The first is of a display showing Galaxy S5. The other images show text referring to two Android applications – “FingerprintService” and “3DTourViewer_WQHD”.

Previous rumours have claimed that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will come with a WQHD display. The same rumours claimed that the WQHD display would come with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 – known as 2K.

Rumours have been passing around for months now about the Galaxy S5. Just yesterday an earlier rumour that the smartphone would be coming with a 16 megapixel OIS lens was confirmed following the publishing of a picture that was taken by a Galaxy S5.

The phone is widely expected to be unveiled at Samsung’s Unpacked event at Mobile World Congress next month.
