- Picture: Concept Phones
The first picture taken with a Galaxy S5 camera could have been leaked this week.
@evleaks posted up a picture of what could be the first sample image taken with the Galaxy S5. It doesn't reveal anything about the S5's camera quality, but it does confirm that the device will feature a 16-megapixel sensor which jives with many recent reports.
The image was shared from the Flipboard news and social curation app by a user known as @123fliptest around three weeks ago. There is also EXIF data on the photo that reveals the resolution of the original file which was 5,312 x 2,988 which makes it around 16-megapixels.
The data states that the picture was taken with a SAMSUNG-SM-G900V which could be Verizon's version of the Galaxy S5.
Another leak delivered courtesy of Sam Mobile reveals that the Galaxy S5 will launch for all major U.S. carriers including Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon, and U.S. Cellular. It will also be available on all major carriers in Japan, Europe, China and South Korea.
The Galaxy S5 is rumored to feature a new music player that will be deeply integrated with social media.
This app is called "Friends Music" and appeared on a patent the company recently received. This does not officially confirm that it will be featured on the device, but there is a good chance.
Another patent recently received by Samsung allows users to perform one-handed operations on smartphones. This function can basically be used from any corner. Customers will be able to use one hand and select all kinds of functions such as apps, notifications, or favorite calls. This will work well on handsets with big displays.
It will also have brand new TouchWiz UI that gives the smartphone's user live updates.
