As the S4 is beginning to show it’s age in the mobile tech world, you guessed it… it’s time for the Galaxy S 5. With the recent release of Galaxy Gear 2 (now running Tizen, not Android) it only seems fitting to announce a new flagship device. Recently Samsung has been teasing the release in their “Unpacked 5” ads, with the “5” being indicative of the S5, and Unpacked 5 is today, providing further evidence of an imminent launch.  Also, Samsung used the number “4” a lot when the S4 was yet to launch. As for the display it is said to be a 5.2 inch display. And in terms of hardware and specifications, there is said to be a premium and non-premium version of the phone, so I will break down the details below:
