Galaxy S5 has leaked today, a few hours from the UNPACKED event. This will give you an idea of what to expect at the event today.

Not much has changed from S4 in terms of design though, which is a disappointment. And it still looks like it's made out of some type of plastic and not even faux leather!

The UI is a little bit different and is much flatter.

The camera is 16MP. It is yet to be seen if it's the ISOCELL tech. Also, UHD recording is present.

According to calculations done by somebody, the battery is 2800 MAh, and it looks just the same as the one on the Galaxy Round.

There is also a Fingerprint scanner on-board, possibly only a Swipe type which is located on the home button.

Menu key has been replaced with multitask key and there is a weird sensor near the camera flash (iris scanner probably). EDIT: It is a Heart Rate Monitor


Check these out:

It is disappointing to me too. I expected a radically changed design this time around.
It looks worse than Hyperglaze or Faux leather. And the white one looks like Styrofoam.
But maybe there will be a premium "Prime" version too. There are leaks about such a possibility.

Hahahahahahaha...
It's getting worse from generation to generation. The charade to be something premium know looks really really cheap.

What do we say to the Galaxy S5? - Not this time Samsung...

They seem to be just throwing in a good SoC, Camera, display and bloatware and not bothering about the build quality!

I stuck with my phone (iPhone 4) since 2010. I really want a new device an I'm waiting for every press event from Samsung, Sony, Apple and others. But the leaked pictures are very disappointing. Again...

That design team needs to be fired ASAP. I hope the press this time criticizes negatively Samsung with no mercy.
