In a series of tweets, well-known leaker @evleaks has posted several details about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5, apparently confirming the official name of the product as well as some of its specs that have been previously included in many other reports – the fingerprint scanner and the 2K resolution display.
“They’re sticking with a winner, name-wise,” @evleaks wrote, posting a wallpaper image that has “Galaxy S5” written on it – the name choice is hardly a surprise considering the popularity of the Galaxy S5’s predecessors. Additional images show names of purported applications “from Samsung Galaxy S5” including “FingerprintService.apk” and “3DTourViewer_WQHD_K.apk.”
The Fingerprint Service app indicates that the phone will have a fingerprint scanner complete with related functionality, a feature that some Samsung execs hinted to. The second app reveals that the resolution of the phone’s display will be WQHD (2560 x 1440), also known as 2K, something many reports have also pointed to.
However, KGI Research analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has recently said that the Galaxy S5 will come in two versions with different screen resolutions, including a WQHD “Premium” model and a Full HD (1920 x 1080) “Standard” version – a new leak has also revealed that some Galaxy S5 versions will have Full HD displays. According to Kuo, both versions will have a fingerprint scanner as well.
