Its that time of year again! It seems like it has been forever since I purchased a new phone. In reality it has only been a few months since I purchased the Note 3, but I am already getting a small bit of upgrade fever. The Galaxy S4 was probably the most leaked device of the year last year. We pretty much new exactly what we were getting when this phone was announced. The Galaxy S5 will likely not release until late spring or early summer yet we already have some “Confirmed” Specs. Take that with a grain of salt, as even these confirmed specs aren’t one hundred percent clear.
We have been looking for Samsung to once and for all build The Galaxy S devices with more premium materials. The S4 had a metal looking rim and felt pretty good in the hand, but was still very much plasticky. According to sources we will see a more premium built S5 with a metal design, but the metalic S5 will cost an extra $200. It will retail for $1091 while the plastic version will retail for $886 for the European variants. The S5 is said to feature an AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2560×1440, either a 64 but Exynos processor or a Snapdragon 805 SoC processor, and a 16mp camera. The sources also relayed that Samsung will release a Galaxy S5 min and a Galaxy S5 Zoom along side the S5.
Would you pay extra for the metal upgrade?
