The Samsung Galaxy S5 is already the subject of some attention, even though its release is still many months away. A new concept video comes our way thanks to O2 Guru TV, who teamed up with Gizmodo UK, T3 and TechRadar to cram the concept video chock full of new features and a stunning design. The concept video is not relegated simply to rumors, as the team has dug deep into recent hardware innovations from a plethora of manufacturers, taking the best ideas and plugging them into the video.
As for specs, the team envisions the S5 as touting a 64-bit octa-core processor, similar to Apple’s A7 chip which resides in the iPhone 5S. The S5 touts a 5-inch Super AMOLED display with a 2560 x 1440 resolution, a 16 MP camera which will record 4K video, a 4,000mAh battery and of course, Android 4.4 KitKat. The device will run a new version of Samsung’s TouchWiz UI as well.
Rumor has it that the Galaxy S5 will be launching in January of 2014. The reasoning for this is supposedly because of a shortage of Galaxy S4 sales, which has been hitting Samsung’s bottom line. While the Galaxy S4 has certainly been selling well since it’s introduction last April, sales have slowed with the release of other flagship handsets such as the LG G2 and the iPhone 5s.
Check out the concept video below, and let us know what you think should be packed into the Samsung Galaxy S5.
