We’re now less than two weeks away from Samsung’s big Galaxy S5 unveiling, which will take place on February 24th just ahead of the start of this year’s Mobile World Congress trade show. Rumors have been coming in hot and heavy for months now, but since Samsung is expected to launch several different versions of the Galaxy S5 in the coming months, information has been crossing left and right. Now, however, it looks like details surrounding one high-end version of Samsung’s 2014 flagship phone may have been confirmed by a leaked photo of the box the handset will ship in.

According to the leaked photo above, which was published on Tuesday by, at least one version of the Galaxy S5 will indeed feature several of the key specs we’ve seen discussed over the past few months.

Among the specs listed are a 5.25-inch Super AMOLED display with 2K resolution, a 2.5GHz quad-core processor, a 20-megapixel primary camera, a 2-megapixel rear camera, 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM, a huge 3,000 mAh battery, an integrated infrared blaster and support for 4G LTE data speeds of up to 150Mbps.

In other words, the Galaxy S5 is going to be a monster.

The specs listed above likely cover one of the main versions of Samsung’s 2014 hero phone, and then several variants with various features will likely roll out after the initial launch.
