Samsung Galaxy S5 photos and details leak hours before official unveiling

The Samsung Galaxy S5 will be officially unveiled in a few hours but somebody has managed to snap several photos of the Galaxy S5 only hours before the announcement is due to take place.

It’s reported that the Galaxy S5 has a swipe type fingerprint sensor embedded into the home button, which will apparently allow you to make PayPal payments. We’re also told the S5 is IP67-certified, meaning it’s water- and dust-proof. The camera is said to be a 16-megapixel one and the screen looks slightly bigger.

There are visible changes in the software department, too. TouchWiz, for one, appears to have gone through some flattening, and folders are definitely different than what we’re used to. The camera UI, along with the S Health app have also been tweaked, design-wise, and we’re shown an all-new Download Booster feature that will likely come pre-loaded on the Galaxy S5. The feature will apparently allow you to download files over 30MB faster, by using both an LTE and Wi-Fi network.

Take a look at the photos and stay tuned for Samsung’s Unpacked 5 event, which will take place at 7PM GMT.[signoff predefined=”Enjoy this?” icon=”icon-users”][/signoff]
