Samsung is expected to unveil its new flagship, the Galaxy S5 , this afternoon, but it seems that some lucky people have already got their hands on it and missed out on some information about the terminal.
Specifically, it has been the people of PocketLint, who have published the information before time, although at this time has been withdrawn from its website, although it is expected that in a few hours return to show it, probably after the presentation of the device by Samsung .
The information published by the media speaks of a smartphone with a 5-inch screen with SuperAMOLED technology and 1920×1080 pixels resolution , that is, FullHD resolution, so it seems that the 2K resolution rumors are at nothing, at least according to this leak.
Samsung incorporates medical sensors in the Galaxy S5
One of the rumors that would confirm this leak, is that the Galaxy S5 will have a fingerprint sensor on the home button in the style of the iPhone 5s. To use it, it’s not enough to simply place your fingertip on the button, you need to slide your finger to perform different actions such as unlocking, making payments through PayPal and other functions that Samsung will show at the official presentation.
Samsung seems to have beaten Apple to the punch, at least according to rumours, and has equipped the S5 with medical sensors . Specifically, the terminal includes a heart rate sensor on the back. This sensor is capable of measuring our heart rate by simply placing your finger on it for a few seconds .
In addition, the S Health 3.0 application will allow you to record all your movements and get statistics on the number of steps you take each day and the calories you consume . Will this mean that the Galaxy S5 will also include some kind of chip that records movements like the iPhone 5s M7 movement coprocessor?
16 megapixels, 4K video recording and low-light enhancements
In the camera section, Samsung’s new terminal looks like it won’t be far behind. According to the leak, the smartphone will have a very fast 16 megapixel camera , reaching speeds of 0.3 seconds between each photo. In addition, the company has worked to improve the quality of shots in low light situations, we assume improving the sensor and the maximum aperture of the aperture. The camera will be able to record video at 4K (UHD) resolution.
Android 4.4 KitKat , the latest version of Google’s operating system, will come standard with the device and will be accompanied by a renewal of Samsung’s customisation layer which, according to the filtering, will be flatter and more minimalist.
Rumors seem to be confirmed: the Galaxy S5 will be resistant to water and dust
Finally, and as rumored. The device will come prepared to be water and dust resistant and will be IP65 certified . This means that it will have a maximum protection against dust (the 6 means ” dust must not enter under any circumstances “) and protection 5 over 8 as far as water is concerned (protection 5 means that ” water thrown from any angle must not enter by means of a nozzle of 6, 3 mm in diameter, at an average of 12.5 litres per minute and at a pressure of 30kNm2 for a time of not less than 3 minutes and at a distance of not less than 3 metres. “, that is, it cannot be immersed under water, but it is okay if some water falls on us or we use it in the rain).
All this information has not yet been confirmed by Samsung, but everything seems to indicate that it will be confirmed this very afternoon and we will be out of the woods.
